ARTIST OF THE DAY
Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss met at Kentucky Christian University. Stuart and his brother David were putting together a rock band and McGinniss struck up a friendship with the pair. Along with David and Barry Blair they launched a band called A-180. The band recorded two independent albums before signing a record contract with ForeFront Records. It was then that they officially became Audio Adrenaline.
Christian music would never be the same - or youth camp. Hits like Big House and We're A Band propelled the band to the forefront of a thriving Christian rock scene in the mid-90s. They were headliners for every Christian festival on the planet - and toured ceaselessly. Ultimately, that took a toll on their families and relationships. Exhaustion and family strain, plus a vocal disease for lead singer Mark Stuart led to the end of Audio Adrenaline.
Or so it seemed...
Two years ago the band reformed with Kevin Max (formerly of dcTalk) as the new lead singer - and Mark Stuart (founder/original lead singer) writing and producing for the band (still unable to sing). Proceeds from the band's new album went to fund the Hands & Feet Project in Haiti!Turns out - Audio Adrenaline was greatly missed and the Kings & Queens album became their most successful to date! Since their return, Kevin Max has departed as lead singer, replaced by Josh Engler of Adandon - and then Josh was replaced by Adam Agee of Stellar Kart. It’s been a whirlwind. Now there are ZERO original members in Audio Adrenaline, but the legacy lives on with a new generation taking on the mantle.
