ARTIST OF THE DAY
Rend Collective

Rend Collective Experiment is an eclectic collective of multi-instrumentalists from the North of Ireland. An inherent desire for something spiritually substantive in our increasingly artificial world is exactly what brought the movement of friends together. United by a common purpose, these twenty-somethings began exploring the intersection between God, life and community.

“The Rend Collective Experiment came together as a few friends started to pray and seek God. We wanted an authentic outworking of our faith and felt that we would just step out into the unknown and see what happened,” Gareth shares. “Before we knew it, people just started gathering around us and we had more than 100 people involved, musicians and artists, bank workers and teachers, and together we tried to figure out our faith.”

After many years in Ireland, the band felt the call to step out again into the unknown as the core 5 of the collective felt they were being called to reach more people. They have now grown into an international success with major tours with Chris Tomlin, MercyMe, Tenth Avenue North and Lecrae under their belts. Their heart is to bring not only a fresh approach to congregational worship, but also a heart and message through the spoken word. Their partnerships and tours with church leaders like Francis Chan, Louie Giglio and Shane Claiborne certainly shows this.

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
David Dunn

David Dunn grew up in Texas, the youngest of three kids. He’s a science fiend and has a degree in engineering from Texas Tech University. But in his world, where working for oil companies is the future presented, David found a depth of art bursting forth from his heart and he could not resist his calling. So while his engineering degree collects dust, his piano is well worn.

After college, David left for a 13 month humanitarian & missions trip to Africa. While there he contracted a life threatening case of malaria and had to return home to recover. From that experience, songs began to form. He went from playing local coffee shops to appearing on NBC’s The Voice - and then on a record contract through BEC in Seattle.

David Dunn’s record label debut is called Crystal Clear - and it looks like his future is clear as well!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Lincoln Brewster

Born and raised in a small town in Alaska, Brewster’s childhood was spent in a broken home. It was an environment darkened by his stepfather’s violent behavior and alcohol addiction. An environment from which Brewster and his mother sought solace in music.

As Brewster bonded with his mom through music, he began mastering a variety of instruments —including a stunning prowess on the guitar. It was this incredible talent that caught the attention of mainstream labels, landed Brewster a “gig” playing with rocker Steve Perry and earned him a mainstream record contract by age 19.

But God had other plans. After attending church with his high school sweetheart and now wife, Laura, Brewster yielded his life to Christ. Filled with a new passion and purpose, Brewster walked away from the promise of rock stardom to take a job at his local church. He also signed a Christian recording contract and leads worship around the world when touring.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Crowder
David Crowder has been a worship leader since college. While at Baylor University in Waco, TX - he and some friends founded a church focussed on college students called University Baptist Church. His friend Chris Seay (Robbie Seay’s brother) was the preacher and David led worship.

As the worship band progressed, they began writing original worship songs - and even recorded a couple of independent albums, distributed mostly around Texas at youth events. This was the beginning of the David Crowder*Band. For fifteen years, this church worship group transformed popular worship music, helped establish the Passion Conference and released some of the most creative and exciting Christian albums of the new millennium.

But fifteen years is a long time. Families were started, different career paths were chosen and ultimately, the band decided it was time for some change. Some of DC*B formed The Digital Age and David formed a new collective of worship leaders and musicians under the name Crowder.

Crowder’s debut album Neon Steeple was released this May and is both familiar and wildly different. The new sound blends Bluegrass, Country, Folk and Electronica for an often introspective, but always boldly praise oriented collection of songs.
