ARTIST OF THE DAY
Christy Nockels

Christy Nockels was born in Ft. Worth, TX and grew up in Oklahoma as the daughter of a pastor and a piano teacher, which infused her heart early with a love for both music and God's word.

In the mid-90s, Christy and her husband Nathan toured the world leading worship, recording albums and winning Dove Awards as the band Watermark. In the mid-2000s the Nockels ended Watermark to help plant a church in Atlanta, GA with Pastor Louie Giglio. And so Passion City Church was born. Yep. The one with Chris Tomlin. That hosts the Passion Conferences. That church.

So at this point Christy is a loving wife, mother to three, worship pastor at a mega-church, music teacher to scores of young worship leaders, a leading member of the award winning Passion worship team (also featuring Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill, David Crowder and many more) and has taken up recording incredible solo albums (produced by her husband) as well.

Enough, Already!: In her spare time Christy Nockels writes and publishes poetry. And as a burgeoning interior designer - she just had her home featured in last Fall’s Better Homes & Gardens. Come on!

Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 37: 4-6 - “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn and the justice (or vindication) of your cause like the noonday sun.”

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Afters

When The Afters broke out onto the scene, it didn't seem like anything could stop them. Their music was fun, their attitudes were joyful and nothing could slow them down!

But life's circumstances quickly changed everything. After losing their longtime friend and manager to a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, two band members decided to part ways with the band, and then there was a life-threatening car wreck, followed by a new member of the band losing a close friend just one week after joining the group.

It was a rough season of change for The Afters. Holding on to their faith and their passion for making music has kept the band focused throughout the mess of it all. Through the pain, faith grew in abundance and that is definitely the message behind their most recent releases.

Ancient History: The four original members of The Afters met while working at a Starbucks together. The band's original name was Screaming Mimes - then they changed it to Blisse. Thankfully a producer talked them into the The Afters.

TV: The Afters' music has been featured on television shows and promos for shows on almost every major network and various cable shows as well - including Grey's Anatomy, Rachel Ray, Dr. Phil, The Biggest Loser, Army Wives, You Deserve It, October Baby, So You Think You Can Dance, Americas Got Talent, The Hills, The Vineyard and more!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Plumb

Tiffany Arbuckle Lee is the voice and face of the Christian band Plumb. Off and on, Plumb has been making amazing music that is never quite what the standard of the day happens to be. Call it being "before their time" or retro or inventive - Plumb pulls heartstrings with deep, passionate lyrics and musically takes listeners to a place they can't get to through any other artist.

Tiffany Lee grew up in Fayetteville, GA and started her career as a backup singer. Her career is in its second decade and her music has been featured on six feature films (including Bruce Almighty) and many television shows (mostly on the CW). As a busy mom, Plumb doesn't have many concerts, but she is a studio rat and releases music once in a blue moon.

Over the past few years Tiffany has shared with her fans the struggle to restore her broken marriage. Through God’s presence, hard work and the support of their local church, the Lees rebuilt their family from a very desperate spot - and now try to help others along that journey. Their story is chronicled in Tiffany Lee’s first book I Need You Now.  

Street Cred: Tiffany Lee also writes for other singers - including Michelle Branch, Kimberly Locke and Mandy Moore.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Kari Jobe

Kari Jobe knew at 10 that she would be a worship leader. Raised in a Christian home with a father who was a traveling minister, Kari began singing in church when she was 3. Through high school and college, Kari watched God set the path before her as she began leading worship in various places. She spent time studying at Oral Roberts University, Christ For The Nations and Dallas Baptist University, where she finished her Psychology and Pastoral Ministries degree.

For nearly a decade Kari has been a worship pastor at her home church in Southlake, TX. She is a featured worship leader on many Gateway Worship projects and in 2009 released her self-titled debut album (and promptly won her first Dove award). Since then she’s released more heartfelt worship albums and a Christmas project.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Dara Maclean

Dara Maclean is a singer and songwriter who pours her passions into her music. Her dream of ministering around the world through music has come to pass through a couple of years that could only be described as a whirlwind! After releasing her debut You Got My Attention, Dara hit the road with Casting Crowns and NewSong. She spent time in Uganda, singing, teaching and helping any way she could.

God was using her to further His kingdom - but He was also pouring out blessings upon her. She’ had radio hits, a rising fan-base - and met, fell in love with and married her husband, Donnie.

Maclean’s journey is, in and of itself, a testament to the power God’s faithfulness. She grew up in Ft. Worth, Tex., immersed in music and ministry from age 7, songwriting and pursuing a calling in the music industry since age 13, all the while learning and growing spiritually, as well as developing an appreciation for all things soul/Motown music to worship music, thanks to her supportive musician/pastor parents.

Her sophomore release, Wanted is only pushing deeper into her creativity and a hope that is firmly placed in Jesus.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
John Mark McMillan

John Mark McMillan wrote How He Loves. A song that has been recorded by a number of other artists, including the David Crowder Band, Kari Jobe, Jesus Culture and Hillsong. It’s a desperate worship song written from a terrible, but faith-affirming experience - the death of a friend who was on staff at McMillan’s church.

There’s a dark side to many of McMillan’s worship songs. Like the Psalms and Lamentations, it sometimes seems that a lot of genuine worship is born out of agony, fear and doubt. McMillan is comfortable exploring those themes in his songs - even if they are uncomfortable experiences that help craft them. And his Johnny Cash-like demeanor gives way to an authentic sound - something both familiar yet very different from other worship leaders.

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.

New Week.
Let’s DO THIS!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Aaron Shust

Aaron Shust wrote his first hit songs for his church - never thinking they would be more than a chance to lead his local congregation in worship. My Savior, My God went on to top six different charts at once on its way to becoming the most played song on Christian radio in 2006!

In early 2010 he and his wife made the decision to pull up stakes from Atlanta and move their young family back to Aaron’s Pennsylvania hometown, where he was invited to take on the role of worship leader in the very church he had grown up in. Now they call Pittsburgh “home.” So they could use your prayers...

The past few years have been an emotional roller coaster for the father of three young sons, yet amongst the challenges there have been miracles with each trial and tribulation. Aaron's second son, Nicky, was extremely ill as an infant and then when their third son, Michael was born, they faced a new set of challenges. He had a heart condition and was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

“I feel like every day is an adventure. Every day presents a challenge. How do we tackle this one? How do we approach this one? The answer is by the grace of God. In everything that comes our way, whenever we start to find ourselves overwhelmed, the mighty hand of God reaches down and picks us up. I feel that. His hand sustains us and we feel very lifted.”
- Aaron Shust
