ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jenny Simmons & Addison Road

Addison Road formed when Jenny Chisolm met Ryan Simmons at Baylor University in Waco, TX. Originally called The Jenny Chisolm band - a few friends from church played with the band as they went to school. It wasn't long before Jenny Chisolm became Jenny Simmons (cause they got married...) and the band became Addison Road. (They named the band after a sound tech's baby.)

Addison Road had the worst 2010, ever. Their tour van caught fire and they lost clothes, baby toys and sound equipment. However, fans and local churches around the country rallied for the band, buying new clothes and equipment for the band. Despite seeing God provide, the constant set-backs wore on the band, who ultimately decided to call it day.

Jenny continues to make music, co-written and produced by her husband Ryan. Jenny is a blogger, author, singer-songwriter, mother, wife, worship leader… the list goes on! Oh - and she’s an avid pinner.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Moriah Peters

Moriah burst onto the Christian radio scene with the beautiful ballad I Choose Jesus. This prayerful song was the title track to her debut album and also her personal mantra. At just 18, the world was offering anything and everything - but she chose Jesus.

Moriah Peters toured relentlessly, sharing her story and struggles - impacting the lives of teenaged girls, especially. Perhaps not since Rebecca St. James has a Christian artist come out of the gate with such an impact in the lives of young people.

Interestingly enough, Moriah found herself dating Rebecca’s brother Joel (of for KING & COUNTRY) - and then last Summer, the couple got married. This is a Summer of touring for the young family, with new albums due out this Summer and Fall from both Moriah and for KING & COUNTRY.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Casting Crowns

Even as Casting Crowns has become Christian music's most successful act, Mark Hall and his fellow band members have continued working at their home churches.

After all the accolades, all the awards, all the time on the road and in the studio, why does Casting Crowns continue to do what they do? The answer is simple: It’s their calling – God’s calling on the lives of these seven committed and talented musicians. To pour their lives into the students and families God has placed in their paths. To set discipleship to music. To challenge and strengthen the body of Christ.

It’s what brought them together in the first place and what keeps them going.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
7eventh Time Down

The guys of 7eventh Time Down grew up as best friends in Kentucky. They picked up instruments together. They wrote songs together - and now they get to tour and lead worship together! It’s a story that every Christian garageband dreams of - and it is the story 7eventh Time Down gets to live.

For 7eventh Time Down, every song is an opportunity for ministry. The band has toured with a long list of impressive artists, including Newsboys, for King & Country, KJ-52, Manafest, Fireflight and Stellar Kart. They are on the road over 100 days a year chasing every opportunity to inspire and point people towards Jesus.

In an effort to expand their ministry beyond their music, the band partners with CURE International, a non-profit that operates hospitals and programs in 27 countries worldwide where patients receive surgical treatment and have the opportunity to hear the Gospel. During the “Club Awesome Tour” alone, more than 38 surgeries were funded.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Seventh Day Slumber

Seventh Day Slumber is both a Christian rock band - and a worship group. Think Kutless. They rock - for sure. But they also want every concert and album experience to be grounded in worship. And this Texas based band has reason to worship - God has delivered them from much.

Lead singer Joseph Rojas tried to commit suicide following a cocaine binge in the mid-90s. He says that he became a Christian while being taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The result: immediate life change. Rojas formed Seventh Day Slumber in 1996 and after a half a decade of independent life, the band got its big break with BEC Records.

This Dove award winning group gets their name from Genesis 2:2 where on the seventh day, after creating the universe, God rested. Their heart is to share with the abused, depressed and scared the rest that comes from relying on Christ - accepting His forgiveness - and living a life full of hope and love.

Verse of the Day

So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Ashes Remain

Ashes Remain’s Josh Smith and Ryan Nalepa (guitar/keys) met one summer leading worship at a youth camp located in rural Maryland - not too far from Gettysburg, PA. Over the course of that summer, Smith and Nalepa had a feeling that God was calling them to walk down similar paths. Desiring to be obedient to God’s will, Smith and Nalepa committed to pray together each day throughout the summer, asking God that if He wanted them to form a band to make His will known to them.

Months later, Smith, back in Florida, received a phone call from a church in Maryland inviting him to lead worship full time. It just so happened that the church was ten minutes down the road from Nalepa.

The band's Fair Trade Services debut What I've Become was written mostly for teenagers, from the perspective of what it is like to feel as if there is no hope, where you are your own worst enemy and ultimately what it looks like to go from that very real and dark place to one where there is hope and step into the light.

That journey from dark to light isn't always a swift one and sometimes has to be walked many times, but it is a journey that the band is familiar with and feels called to go on with their fans.

As lead vocalist Josh Smith puts it, “We’re just broken people who need Jesus.”

Sounds Like: Ashes Remain sounds like early Kutless, a smidgen of Pillar with a dash of Skillet. Hard-hitting rock with a heart for worship.
