ARTIST OF THE DAY
Hearts Of Saints

Hearts of Saints is a trio of worship leaders, whose sole purpose is to attract young people to the cross. Now two albums into their career, the band has honed their sound and worked hard to create anthemic music, focussed on glorifying God.

The band is made up of Craig Felker (frontman), Jesse Grisham (guitar) and Joel “Wolfman” Purdy (bass). They’ve worked closely with accomplished producers and songwriters; Ainslie Grosser (Jesus Culture, Matt Redman,) Michael Farren (Let the Worshippers Arise) and Grammy Award-winning producer Andy Hunt (Matthew West) in order to take all aspects of pride out of their work. Instead, they’ve focussed on the question “How can we best serve God’s Kingdom with music?”

Awesome: GRAMMY nominee & multiple Dove Award winner Natalie Grant chose to record the Hearts of Saints song For All Of Us for her latest album Hurricane.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Selah

Just this past week Selah did something that had never before been done in Christian radio History! Their new song You Amaze Us debuted on the Inspirational Christian chart at the #1 spot. Let that sink in. As soon as the song came out - it shot to #1! Numero uno. The Big Kahuna! A round of applause for Selah, everybody!

From their inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the trio’s 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul, helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today.

Though the line-up has changed several times in the group’s 15-year history, right now Selah is comprised of Allan Hall, Amy Perry, and Todd Smith. As individuals and as a team, Selah has weathered many storms. From severe illness to even the death of a child - but the group has stayed faithful to what God has called them to do - to sing, to worship, and to tell people about Jesus Christ!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Building 429

Jason Roy formed Building 429 to reach others with a story similar to his. He faced a hard childhood and found freedom and relief in the local church. The band's name comes from Ephesians 4:29 "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."

In The Beginning: Back in 2005, B429 won the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year.

Building 429 hopes the songs on the GRAMMY nominated album We Won’t Be Shaken 

will remind people they are more than conquerors in Christ. “We don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about who we were before Christ because the old is gone and new has come,” says lead singer Jason Roy. "We wanted to talk about how David is no longer shepherd boy. Now he’s King. We didn’t want to talk about Moses the stutterer. We wanted to talk about Moses the leader of the nation. We really felt like we wanted to make a record that said, ‘Stand up! You have been called. We are God’s children. Who can stand against what God has begun?"

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Michael W. Smith

Michael Whitaker Smith was born October 7, 1957 to Paul and Barbara Smith in Kenova, West Virginia. Michael was your typical Southern boy – active in baseball, his family’s church activities, and playing piano. He wrote his first song at age 5 (I’m sure it was precious) - but as a child, he longed to be a professional baseball player!

In 1982, Michael was asked to play keyboards in a band that was backing up Christian & Pop sensation, Amy Grant. Michael toured and wrote with Amy for years before launching his own solo career. In 1989 his song Go West Young Man began what would become one of the most legendary careers in Christian music.

From pavement pounding superstar of the 1990s, to record label founding, mega-producer artist who jets around the world on private planes - Smitty has sung for Presidents and orphans alike! According to his Twitter feed, this week he’s working on a new Christmas album with Country superstars Lady Antebellum. But that’s just another day in the life of a guy who’s sold more than 15 million albums, scored 28 No. 1 hits, earning three GRAMMYs and more than 40 Dove Awards.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jonny Diaz

Jonny comes from a family of overachievers. Both he and two of his brothers went to Florida State University on full baseball scholarships! These guys are talented - two of them even went pro! But a year into college, Jonny found his calling was music and not playing ball. Turning away from a full ride, he focused on what God called him to do - and it is paying off in spades!

From the beginning of his music career, Diaz’s desire has been to write songs that entertain, encourage and challenge fellow believers. Jonny Diaz on writing songs: “I attempted to break free from some of the traditional confines of Christian music, but I couldn’t get away from the fact that most of my songs revolve around my relationship with Christ. He is the focus of my life and I find it impossible to honestly record my emotions and my journey without including Him."

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.
