ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jamie Grace

Jamie Grace is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. Her debut single “Hold Me feat. TobyMac” landed her a nomination at the 2012 Grammy awards where she was the youngest nominee. That year, she was also nominated for a Billboard Award and four Dove Awards, going home as the Dove Awards New Artist of the Year.

Jamie Grace has since landed her first feature film (as Rachel in Grace Unplugged), co-hosted the Dove Awards pre-show and released her sophomore album!

Jamie got her start by posting covers and original songs onto her YouTube channel - capturing the attention of TobyMac. She still posts a LOT on YouTube… like a lot, a lot.  

Awesomesauce: Jamie was fan-voted onto a limited edition 7-Up can. Becoming the first Christian artist to become “7-Up” can famous. That’s just a hop, skip and a jump from “Beatles” famous.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
for King & Country

Joel and Luke are brothers. And they have five other siblings as well. One of whom is Rebecca St. James. Though born in Australia, they were raised in Nashville, TN and on the road with their concert promoting father and Christian music superstar sister. They were literally born into the music industry - like royalty.

Luke says, “We want to deliver a message that is about believing in something much bigger than oneself. You can confidently go through the ups and downs in your life because you know that life isn’t all about you and what you do but rather the hope and salvation of Christ.”

The Bible: Millions watched the epic mini-series on The History Channel - and millions heard music from for King & Country - they were featured in commercials for the television event and on the official soundtrack!

Mahwadge: Last summer, Joel married long-time girlfriend Moriah Peters - an amazing Christian singer/songwriter in her own right!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Seth Condrey

Seth Condrey is a worship leader out of NorthPoint Church in Atlanta, GA. He grew up in a family that was always on the road - leading worship around America. By adolescence, Seth was writing his own songs of worship - enamored by the songwriting process, which allowed him to praise God using his voice and his skills on the guitar.

“God has spoken to me so much through music and I feel the need to offer what I can back to Him and to others in complete humility as a gift of appreciation for all that He has done in my life.”

Seth is a triple threat in that he sings, plays guitar AND is bi-lingual. In 2008, he won a Dove Award for Spanish language album of the year!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Citizens & Saints

Citizens & Saints is a worship band born out the heart of Seattle’s University District. Originally called “Citizens” - there was a conflict of copyright with another band from England - so the band chose an altered moniker, Citizens & Saints. C&S has quickly built a reputation for their dynamic hymn arrangements and high intensity anthems.

Last Christmas the band put out an incredible EP called Repeat The Sounding Joy - which was one of the most fun new Christmas projects of 2013! They have a new full length worship album planned for the end of October.

Citizens & Saints hope their music can do one thing—unite the Church by proclaiming the gospel through song and "Join The Triumph" is the message they want to convey. C&S sings to remind the local church that they’re part of the big-“C” Church—a victorious body whose sole job is to proclaim God’s Kingdom across the Earth.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
JJ Heller

Most overnight successes take years to accomplish. For example, JJ Heller began writing and performing music full time with her husband Dave back in 2003. But it wasn't until 2009 that her song Your Hands skyrocketed her to Christian radio recognition. Only in the entertainment industry can a 10 year career be classified as an overnight success.

Family: The Hellers have two daughters and are based out of Phoenix, Arizona (it's a dry heat).

When you listen to JJ Heller, listen for honesty and melody. It's those two words that define her style and life. JJ is actively songwriting, blogging, sewing, decorating and being a wife and mother. Her newest album is a collection of lullabies written by her and her husband for their two daughters. And she’s also published her very first children’s book: The Golden Feather.  

JJ says: "God's helped me to see life as an adventure rather than a series of potential hurts. The world can be scary, but when we know we're loved, we can be open to risks because we are confident in our identity."

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Sidewalk Prophets

Integrating worship with real life - that is one of the simple truths Sidewalk Prophets has learned to live by. Dave Frey and Ben McDonald founded the band in college, having no idea that in a short time they would have a successful record and a loaded touring schedule. A demo tape landed them in a campus talent contest, which somehow connected them to Audio Adrenaline's Will McGinniss, landing them an opening gig for Audio Adrenaline which formed the template for their life now spent on the road over 150 days of the year.

Sounds like a fun life, right? Sure, if you want to leave family and friends to live on the road for half of each year, sleeping in the janitor’s closet at some venues, and making due with beans and cornbread, while trying to practice, write and record in between shows.

Exhausting? Yes.
Worth it? To Sidewalk Prophets, they'd have it no other way!

Dave and Ben rounded out their band with a bassist and drummer they found on Craigslist. So you never know who will respond to your ad!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Luminate

Luminate frontman Sam Hancock (lead vocal/guitar) grew up in Washington, IN, and began leading worship at his church at 14. While Sam continued this role through high school, he also struggled with the same issues of many teens. He calls his late high school years his time of rebellion.

Upon graduation, Hancock was at a crossroads of choosing business school or music school. He chose music and enrolled at the Visible School of Music in Memphis. It was there he met Dusty Jakubik (bass), who was looking for a fresh start after the group he was in fell apart. From there the pieces fell into place, adding additional members to the group that would become Luminate.

The Message: Luminate aims to show people that they have purpose when they think they have none.

The Goal: Reaching the world through song, and to bring hope by example, humility, and truth to a generation filled with apathy and confusion.

In a letter on the band’s website, Sam Hancock announced that the group will now focus solely on leading worship in local churches. They want to step out of the music industry and back into equipping God’s people to worship. A new worship album is due out later this Winter.
