Reformation Day

On October 31, 1517 an obscure monk named Martin Luther, desiring to spark theological discussion over the medieval practice of selling indulgences, nailed his 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.

The Rocket Summer: Feel the Force

After years of recording, The Rocket Summer, aka Bryce Avary, says he found himself “really losing sight of what’s important.” He began to ask himself what would Jesus really do, and the result of this new-found focus is his new CD which Avary calls “a very spiritual record.”

Emery’s Man Marked by Loss, Regret

It’s impossible to check out Emery’s latest, I’m Only a Man, and not get the drift that the guys have several issues weighing heavily on their hearts, particularly loss and regret.

Captiva Sure to Be a Hit for Falling Up

The third time is the charm for this insanely talented rock band from Oregon. They hit it big with their first album, and the second showed promise and growth. But with Captiva they hit a home run out of the park.

Trin-i-tee's T57 a Shot in the Arm for Urban Gospel

Whether they’re singing about good times, their relationships or the Lord, Trin-i-tee 5:7 never skips a beat. T57 is so hip and current, it’s the shot in the arm urban gospel has been needing for some time.

Focus Is on the Family on Plumb's Blink

On Blink, vocalist-wife-mother Tiffany Arbuckle Lee gives listeners a window into her profound joy and awe of the beauty of family life done well. And it comes across very well on this immensely personal album.

New Noise: Children 18:3, Mainstay and More

Few can compare to the life, luster and liveliness in Children 18:3. Though the band is punk rock by trade, the term itself can hardly do justice to the unique quality this act possesses. Read more about this band, Mainstay and others that are worth checking out.

Caedmon's Stays Acoustic, Relevant on 15th Effort

On the band’s 15th effort, Caedmon’s Call initiates another round of welcome dialogue. The tone remains acoustic, and the song lyrics are mostly three-minute narratives about life in the real world.
