ARTIST OF THE DAY
Salvador

Salvador is a jam band born out of Austin, TX. More jazz influenced than anything else, they take the stage every night without a set list - so every night is a surprise! With heavy Latin influences to their modern praise and worship music, Salvador usually releases each album in both English and Spanish.

Connected: Front man Nic Gozalez is married to Jaci Valasquez. It's safe to say that Christian music is their lifeblood.

Joy in the Morning


Verse of the Day

My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

Psalm 84:2


Amazing Fact

At birth, a Dalmation is always pure white.


Tuesday Trivia

Q: Only 5% of Americans do this every day on the way to work...what is it?

It is "clutch" time for Tuesday Trivia. Join us Friday at 7:15 a.m. and give your best guess. If we don't get the correct answer we may have to "switch gears".

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Todd Angew

Todd Agnew modeled his early career after Rich Mullins. He was a lone gun, describing his methodology as, "I've always been kind of the hammer - walk in, speak the truth, blow up the town, walk off and let all the pastors apply that truth or pick up the pieces." If you've seen him in concert you know that he isn't afraid to stop mid-song and tell the crowd exactly how he feels.

But that attitude changed completely in 2008, when Todd went from flying solo all over the world to owning a home, getting married, and becoming a step-dad. You can imagine that changes your perspective. His latest music is filled with a sense of Joy, Hope, and Love that had been missing in both Todd's life and his ministry.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Big Daddy Weave

Mike Weaver is a big guy, hence the name Big Daddy Weave! Simple, funny, slightly self depreciating - and yet once you get past the fun of simply saying "Big Daddy Weave!" you find a worship band that is sincere in their desire to lead others to throne of God.

Formed at the University of Mobile, the quintet—Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Joe Shirk, Jeremy Redmon and Jeff Jones—has earned a reputation both for the musical conviction that has carried their songs to the top of the charts and for the joy and passion that have made their live performances such moving and memorable experiences.

The band's latest album Love Come To Life took three years to make. And the band literally went through the fire while writing and recording the project. A devastating fire swept through guitarist/producer Jeremy Redmon's house and studio halfway through the recording process. That along with health issues, exhaustion and a number of other trials have served to deepen the faith of this band of brothers (technically Mike and Jay are actual brothers).

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
Come Now Is The Time
