ARTIST OF THE DAY
Shawn McDonald

Originally from Oregon, now Seattle-based - Shawn McDonald crafts somber melodies with rich lyrical depth. Shawn's journey has taught him to appreciate and delight in the truly good things of life and to embrace each season as it unfolds. He yearns to find contentment and accept every step God leads him on.

The Transformation: Shawn was a drug addict/dealer in trouble with the law at age 20. It was then, near suicide that Shawn came to know Jesus Christ. He is a life completely transformed by Grace.

In preparation for his album Closer, Shawn took a job as a taxi driver in Nashville, TN - collecting stories that fuel his new songs. He's also a budding photographer and deeply interwoven in the Seattle art scene.

Audiophiles: If you are into music, you'll be impressed by the undertaking Shawn accomplished for his brand new Best of... collection. For The Analog Sessions Shawn recorded everything on tape - no computers. Old school recording at it's finest. Instead of repackaging his hits, he actually re-recorded them with vintage instruments and even sang on one of Frank Sinatra's old microphones!

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
Dan Bremnes

Dan Bremnes grew up in a rustic part of Canada - Salmon Arm, British Columbia. He was never into being a Royal Canadian Mounty, professional LaCross player or even a milk bagger (all legit dreams of a Canadian child). Nope, Dan was a drummer. He was banging out beats from before he could walk. He joined his church worship team at age 10 (because everyone needs drummers). Over the years he picked up the guitar and fell in love with songwriting - but let’s face it, there are limited music related career options in a place called Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

It was a six-month missions trip in Australia with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) that would help re-shape his perspective: “While I was there, something happened in my life, and God started working on my heart. I started to go a lot deeper in my faith,” Dan shares. “Something sort of clicked in me. I’ve always had these opportunities to lead worship and share about my faith, and I started thinking about making music that was really intentional about reaching people on a spiritual level. I wanted to come right out and speak about God and my relationship with Him.”

But challenges don’t just go away when you commit yourself to a life of faith. It’s actually quite the opposite. Soon Dan’s mom was killed in a car accident, there were touring struggles as an independent artist. Dan and his wife had a baby just as his career was picking up steam. So the couple took a leap of faith and moved their family to Nashville, TN.

So pray for Dan Bremnes and this journey of faith and music that he is on. And enjoy his music on Joy! 102.5.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jason Castro

“I’ve heard it said that music is the language of the soul. I think it’s something God created for our souls to be able to rejoice in.” - Jason Castro

Jason Castro is the bright eyed, dreadlocked Christian who captivated the nation on Season 7 of American Idol. The Texan had his pick of music careers after the show and chose to make music aimed at worship.

Raised in the church by a musical family of Colombian descent, Castro started drumming at 11, playing music in the youth ministry, and joined his father in leading worship. As a drummer, Castro loved the intensity of bands like MxPx and Switchfoot. While in college Jason moved from being the crazy drummer to the introspective song-writer. Which meant transitioning from behind the drumkit to behind the microphone.

Jason Castro finished in fourth place on his season of American Idol. That's saying something for a guy who never really thought he had the chops to be a professional singer/songwriter. As a vocal member of the I Am Second movement, Jason has proudly broadcasted his faith, but with his naturally gentle spirit.

Hair: Jason has been rocking dreadlocks for years, but recently cut them off (probably because his daughter would yank at them) and now he looks like a completely different person.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Britt Nicole

A native of Salisbury, NC, Britt has always had a heart for reaching people and has long used music as the vehicle to change lives. She began singing in church at age three and by the time she was in high school, was appearing on her church’s daily television program and logged a performance at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall with her school’s advanced chorus.

History: Those early pursuits paved the way for her to sign with Sparrow Records in 2006. She burst on the charts a year later with her label debut, Say It. It was a super-fun album with surprising lyrical depth - and it earned her a slot on the Winter Jam tour that year with Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, NewSong and Hawk Nelson where she developed a reputation as a compelling live performer. It was in 2011 when she received her first Dove Award nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Abroad: Aside for making a name for herself in the states - Britt's pop-electronica stuff has been charting solidly in the UK. Expect a lot more from her in the future. Even in her early 20s, she's already a veteran in the new world order of Christian music.

Personal: Britt and her husband (drummer/producer) Josh Crocker welcomed their first child this past year!
