ARTIST OF THE DAY
Among The Thirsty

Among The Thirsty is Christian Contemporary/Modern Worship/Rock band from the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Formed in 2004 by two high school buddies, Among the Thirsty has developed into a nationally touring band, reaching across the country with their powerful worship, razor sharp rock, and funk. Once coined "The Fab Four of Christian Music", Among the Thirsty has been able to cross age barriers and genre lines to bring a type of music that reaches the entire listening audience.

“Our purpose is to present a unique style of the Gospel to the world through our music. We strive to live a life that is worthy of God's presence, to proclaim the Majesty and Holiness of Christ with our gifts, and to speak words of hope and life to all those who are searching and hurting. We make a strong effort to be straightforward with the gospel and not to be timid when sharing the Good News. All these talents and gifts have been given by the grace of God and from a heart of thankfulness we continue to thirst for more of Him."

ARTIST OF THE DAY
All Things New

On the surface, singer Garrett Hornbuckle, drummer Luke Wycuff, bassist Joshua Schou, and guitarist Jeff Stein are young and easygoing: two guys met playing junior high baseball together and music runs in several of their families. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find godly men who know too much too soon about broken homes, broken faith, and broken hearts – and on the flipside what it means to be restored, accepted and made new.

The origins of All Things New date back to the guys’ mid-teen years as a six-piece outfit born from different Fellowship of Christian Athletes worship bands. The four young men from Florida have experienced different lives but are very much on the same page with this first batch of songs they wrote together.

Last year the band made their debut, opening up for the Newsboys in the Spring, saddling up next to The Rhett Walker Band in the Fall - and now they've started 2014 on tour with Francesca Battistelli and Sanctus Real. Take notes. That is how you launch a career!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Leeland

This GRAMMY award and multi-Dove award nominated band from Baytown, TX is known for powerful songwriting. Their music is anthemic, with lyrics that show uncommon depth and discernment.

Lead singer Leeland Mooring and his older brother Jack make up what has become truly a family band. Their sister Shelly toured with them for a while as bassist, but has since become a mommy and now works from the family’s home church.

Leeland Mooring continues to tour and lead worship for conferences for now, while his brother Jack has taken on the task of being a pastor of a church in Franklin, TN. But the band isn’t calling it quits. They are just experiencing a new depth of life and enjoying a new season of worship.

Ahhhhhhh…. weekend….

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jadon Lavik

Jadon was born in Redmond, Washington, where he was raised in a Christian home with his parents and two siblings. Although he had some experience with music early in life, playing violin and guitar, he was most energized about sports and desired to pursue a baseball career.

But after an internship at Saddleback church in Southern California, the calling on his life became glaringly obvious… And it wasn’t a calling to play ball.

Jadon Lavik's seminary background gives him a true concern with using Biblical theology in his worship songs. It is sometimes easier for a songwriter to go with what feels good. Spiritual candy. But Jadon deals with the depths of God's word in his writings.

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.

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."
