By this point you should start freaking out if you’ve not planned something for Mother’s Day. Which is this Sunday.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Matt Maher

Matt Maher's career has been one lived in transition. He moved from Newfoundland, Canada to the US in order to follow God's call to a life in ministry. He planted himself as a worship leader for a church in Mesa, Arizona. There may not be a place more polar opposite of Canada than Arizona. Then he moved his family to Nashville, now working full time as a touring artist and worship leader.

Maher has had the chance to write some incredible worship songs and work with other gifted worship leaders; Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Brenton Brown, Audrey Assad, Jars of Clay and Hawk Nelson. Those songs have earned him nearly a dozen Dove Award nominations - AND TWO GRAMMY nominations!

Matt Maher's challenge to those he worships with is, ".. everybody is called to be a missionary wherever we are. The mission field has changed. The mission field is everywhere."

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Sanctus Real

Sanctus Real formed in Toledo, Ohio, in 1996, when founding members Matt and Chris were just in the 10th grade. After high school, Sanctus Real scored a record deal by loading up their van and heading to Nashville during Gospel Music Association week. They walked around the convention handing out homemade press kits including their indie release and a week later, the phone was ringing off the hook!

“Making music for the sake of making music never made sense to us,” says Chris Rohman (lead guitar). “Our mission was so clear at the beginning it was almost unspoken. It has been so natural for us to create music that reflects a life lived through faith in God.”

ARTIST OF THE DAY
David Crowder*Band

DC*B was born out of a need for an authentic worship experience at Baylor University. David Crowder and Chris Seay founded University Baptist Church in 1995 - while still in school. The church grew - and so did the worship team. Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times at the church and eventually the church released an independent CD, Pour Over Me.

Fifteen years, thousands of concerts and half a dozen award winning albums later, DC*B decided enough was enough. Well at least they decided it was time for a change. Several members of the band have gone on to form The Digital Age, while David has formed a new group called Crowder. So the legacy of David Crowder*Band lives on!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Brenton Brown

Brenton Brown grew up in Cape Town, South Africa - then studied in Oxford (Rhodes Scholar), England - and now lives in Malibu, California. So he's been around.

While studying in England, Brenton Brown became one of the young worship leaders at the very first Vineyard UK. But just when life seemed to be roaring down the highway of success, Brown fell ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and was forced to leave his position as worship pastor and take a sabbatical in his South African home town. During his recovery he met and married his wife Jude - also ill with CFS.

Realizing that a change in pace and lifestyle might assist their recovery in 2005 the Browns reluctantly left London for California.

Family Matters: Brenton and Jude have a little girl named Bella.

Songs By Brenton Brown That You Probably Know:
Lord Reign in Me
All who are Thirsty

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jars of Clay

Jars of Clay formed in 1994, when Dan Haseltine and Charlie Lowell became friends at Greenville College. By the end of 1995, few had not heard their breakout song Flood. Ever since, this college rock band has pursued their art form with relentless touring, recording and writing.

Discography: To date, Jars of Clay has released 14 albums! Including their new release Inland.

Blood|Water Mission: Lead singer Dan Haseltine visited Africa in 2002, which in turn inspired the founding of Blood:Water Mission, a non-profit organization created to raise awareness and money for the poverty and AIDS stricken regions of the continent. The name is derived from, as Haseltine says, "The two things Africa needs most" - clean blood and clean water. B:W kicked off the 1000 Wells project, an effort to have a thousand new wells built throughout Africa and just last year they met their goal of providing clean water to 1,000 African communitiest. Former Bassist for Jars of Clay Aaron Sands serves as Administrative Director for the project.

Rush of Fools

Rush of Fools burst onto the Christian music scene in 2007 earning ASCAP Song of the Year honors for Undo and garnered four Dove Award nominations. But then, their trials came - with the folding of their record label and a subsequent drawn out legal process.

Over the past several years, the band served their local community, toured regionally and kept writing songs. Those songs, written through a very tough time, turned out to be full of Hope. Since their independent release the band has been picked up by Sony/Provident Label Group and is about to release their most worshipful album to date.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The City Harmonic

In 2011, a band hailing from Ontario, Canada made a tremendous splash into the United States. Their debut album Introducing The City Harmonic featured a hit song that captivated the American Christian radio audience and scored a surprise late hit. The song was Manifesto.

The band's first full-length album I Have A Dream conquered American airwaves with hit songs like the title track, Mountaintop and Holy (Wedding Day). Their latest album Heart continues establishing a sincere track record of worship.

It'd be one thing if their popularity was fueled simply by their creative piano driven rock sound, but it's the lyrical depth that gives the band staying power. Many times, taken directly from scripture and constantly surging towards moments of worship - The City Harmonic's songs have been called "a roadmap with only one route, to sum up the journey of faith and mystery."

In what might be the coolest contest for fans of any group - The City Harmonic are giving away Tickets For Life to fans each month of the year 2014. Which means you could go to any/all of their shows forever! CLICK HERE to sign up!
