ARTIST OF THE DAY
Lauren Daigle

Growing up in Lafayette, La., singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle had the opportunity to immerse herself in the soulful surroundings brimming with an eclectic mix of zydeco, blues and Cajun music. These diverse sounds inform Daigle’s colorful, distinct brand of worship music.

Lauren contracted a serious, contagious virus when she was in high school that caused her to be out of school for nearly two years. Although Daigle was able to keep up with her studies through correspondence courses, homeschooling and eventually attending a charter school, the last two years of high school were an unusually isolated season for Daigle who was just coming into her own as a teen.

However, it was this exaggerated period of loneliness that allowed the budding singer to become fully aware of her true desire to whole-heartedly pursue her musical aspirations. “Singing was becoming more than just a dream,” she says. “It was becoming, ‘How am I going to survive if I don’t do this?’”

She tried out several years - and moved forward twice in American Idol try-outs, but never experienced contentment in singing unless she was leading worship. Ultimately she connected with Centricity Records, doing background work for Jason Gray and launching her solo career with the release of How Can It Be.

Passionate about the plight of human trafficking, Daigle also hopes to use her platform to be a mouthpiece for those without a voice. It’s an issue she’s been fervent about since high school when one of her peers presented the then relatively taboo topic to her class. She’s especially attentive to the teens in her audience, realizing what a crucial season of life they are walking through and wanting her music to be a compass for those in search of the dreams God is sewing in their hearts.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Burlap To Cashmere

Burlap to Cashmere was originally a college theater show that Steven Delopoulos put together for his final exam at Marymount Manhattan college in 1994. He later asked his then 14 year old cousin Johnny to join him in the show, and the band was formed. Members Mike Ernest (guitar) and childhood friend Theodore Pagano (drums) followed.

Christian music was booming in the late 90s and Burlap toured relentlessly. Ultimately that schedule took its toll and the band ceased to be. In 2007 the band recorded a new demo, but John (Johnny was so 1995) was involved in a car accident and subsequent fight that landed him in the hospital and killed the band’s return.

Flash forward again to 2011. Burlap to Cashmere released a full-length album, long form video and experienced a renaissance. Most recently the band began recording a crowd-funded album, due out before Christmas!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Matthew West

Dove award winning, GRAMMY nominated Matthew West is the songwriting darling of Nashville. A pastor’s son, West grew up in Downers Grove, Illinois and released three independent projects before signing to a major label and issuing his first studio album, Happy. The project yielded the hit “More,” which went on to become the most played song on Christian radio in 2004. His follow-up History would continue his radio dominance.

Then life happened. West underwent a career-threatening vocal surgery in 2007. He didn't know if he'd ever sing again. But God brought healing and fresh perspective. Less than a year after his surgery, West released Something To Say and garnered more listener and critical acclaim than ever before.

The last several albums released by Matthew West have been, in a way, co-authored by his fans. He began writing songs based on stories given to him by his fans both at concerts and through his interactive website.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Tanner Clark

Tanner Clark’s love for music started with a love for Jesus. Saved at a young age Tanner always had a passion for singing and as a teen he began developing his voice and musical abilities. He was born in the foothills of east Tennessee and his unique sound and style have hints of his southern upbringing. Listen close and the sound of a mandolin or the slight picking of a banjo can be heard in almost every tune, Tanner has often said “it’s important to hold onto your musical roots even in an ever changing music industry where new sounds and styles become obsolete almost as soon as they begin.”

Tanner is also a worship leader at his home church, South Cleveland Church of God. He feels that it’s important for aspiring Christian artist to not lose focus on their ultimate purpose and that’s too lead the body of Christ in lifting up the name of Jesus through song.

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.
