ARTIST OF THE DAY
Needtobreathe

Named after the acclaimed University of Alabama football coach Bear Bryant, brothers Bear and Nathaniel Bryant "Bo" Rinehart were born and raised in rural Possum Kingdom, SC, where their pastor father ran a church camp.

Formed in 1999, Needtobreathe built an impressive regional following, playing throughout the Southeast. They toured non-stop, recording at their home studio and got noticed by Hollywood producers, who have used their music in television and film.

The band’s latest release is heavily influenced by their Southern roots - drawing from the Blues, Country and Southern Gospel.

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.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jamie Grace

Jamie Grace is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. Her debut single “Hold Me feat. TobyMac” landed her a nomination at the 2012 Grammy awards where she was the youngest nominee. That year, she was also nominated for a Billboard Award and four Dove Awards, going home as the Dove Awards New Artist of the Year.

Jamie Grace has since landed her first feature film (as Rachel in Grace Unplugged), co-hosted the Dove Awards pre-show and just released her sophomore album!

Jamie got her start by posting covers and original songs onto her YouTube channel - capturing the attention of TobyMac. She still posts a LOT on YouTube… like a lot, a lot.  

Awesomesauce: Jamie was fan-voted onto a limited edition 7-Up can. Becoming the first Christian artist to become “7-Up” can famous. That’s just a hop, skip and a jump from “Beatles” famous.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Laura Story

Laura Story won a GRAMMY and several Dove Awards for her song Blessings. Her lyrics remind us that God works in ways that we would prefer He didn't - but that His ways are truly better. It was a hard learned lesson. For several years Laura has walked a dark path with her husband Martin Elvington. Just a year after they married Martin was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He was kept alive with a breathing machine and surgeons operated multiple times trying to save his life. Through the process Martin lost much of his vision and continues to suffer severe memory loss.

Like the story of Job, God has poured out tremendous blessing on Laura and her family after a very difficult time. Laura and Martin welcomed their first child last Summer (daughter, Josie) - and now the couple is expecting twins!. Plus Laura Story continues to serve at a mega-church in Atlanta where she teaches a new generation how to lead worship.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Museum

The Museum took shape when singer Ben Richter and guitarist Geoffrey Ashcraft moved from Texas to Georgia and plugged into a church where drummer/programmer Josh Kirk was the janitor. Soon they were leading local worship services together and then traveling on musical mission trips overseas.

Joined by bassist Chris Brink in 2009, The Museum is continuing its commitment to global outreach while also developing an important bond with churches across the United States. Ben’s passion for staying rooted in a spiritual community brought the group to Briarlake Church near Atlanta where they still lead worship most Sundays. Additionally, the guys have helped out at neighboring North Point Community Church’s partner Atlanta locations and around the country.  Ben also leads worship at the multi-site Elevation Church in North Carolina on a recurring basis.

What's in a Name: The Museum is actually named after a revolution. During a 2008 mission trip to Romania, drummer Josh Kirk found himself at a ceremony commemorating the end of Communism in that country twenty years earlier. “There was a small, humble museum near the square that told the story,” he recalls. “Turns out it was a group of Christians that actually brought about that political and social revolution.” Twenty years later the political changes were celebrated but the spiritual center of the revolution had been mostly forgotten. Kirk saw little evidence of Christian influence in the culture. “That little museum remained though,” he adds, “offering a glimpse into the kind of faith that can turn a nation upside down.”

Fun & Games: If there's a basketball court nearby, that's where you'll find the guys of The Museum during tour stops. Plus, now that it's baseball season you'll find them proudly supporting the Atlanta Braves.

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.

Casey Darnell

Atlanta, Georgia-based worship leader, singer, and songwriter, Casey Darnell, leads worship on a regular basis at North Point Community Church’s five Atlanta campuses, along with numerous other churches across the country. He has become a fixture with major student events and camps, and is in front of more than 50,000 people each year.

North Point has spent years cultivating a community of worship leaders and artists - and recently launched their own record label. They’ve released some incredible worship and Christmas music, including Casey’s first full-length worship project and his latest, self-titled album.

While Casey Darnell’s album is full of original worship songs, when the band tours - their focus is on leading worship, not promoting albums; so they sing an array of worship songs, old and new, by a variety of different song and hymn writers.

Family: Casey was born in Lynchburg, VA - but the family relocated to the Atlanta, GA metro when he was just three. He has a degree in Childhood Education & Communication from Kennesaw State University - is married to Anisa with whom he has two daughters. This July the Darnell’s will celebrate their 10th Anniversary!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
City Harbor

Hailing from Nashville, TN, Molly Reed and Robby Earle are City Harbor. Their songs come from a desire to know Christ and to make Christ known to the world around. As they explain, “when we see hurting people, struggling loved ones, and injustice in the world we’re always thinking somebody’s gotta do something but inside we know it has to start with us. All too often we miss the moment to share our faith or show love.”

Molly and Robby were both songwriters for other artists (including Amy Grant) before forming City Harbor. And no - they are not married to each other. In fact, Molly is married to Mike Grayson - lead singer of MIKESCHAIR.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
August Rain

August Rain began as a few song collaborations between drummer Frank Bowen and then guitarist Josh Kirk in 2009. The musical style and easy friendship turned out a stellar independent album, landing August Rain on television and as the opening act for a national tour.

In 2010, Matthew Janzen became the lead singer of August Rain and ultimately that change broadened the musical style of the band - catching the ear of Third Day’s Mac Powell, who sings a duet with Matthew on the band’s latest album.

The unique appeal of the music is its ability to reach people with a spiritual message without invoking a "preachy" style. Their goal is to give the listener an experience that goes beyond the immediate - something that sticks with you and makes you think, but with a smile on your face.
