Maranatha! Praise Band - Top 10 Praise Band 2013 Biography and History
History ::
Maranatha! Music has become synonymous with Christian music today. The label is a pioneer in praise and worship music publishing. Each year, Maranatha! is dedicated to introducing new songs and promoting its classics to the church through song publishing, music in stores and church leadership training. Maranatha! Music shepherds the “Jesus Music” of today by serving the church with the song of faith. Best known for the Praise Series, Praise Band Series, and Top 25 Series; Maranatha! Music has sold more than 30 million records worldwide.

Maranatha! Music was founded in 1971 by Chuck Smith Sr. of Calvary Chapel to promote the “Jesus Music” his young hippie followers were writing and singing up and down the California coast. In the early years, Maranatha! Music signed artists because of their passionate profession of faith through music. These songs became the seminal calling card of the worship music genre of that time and belonged to the Maranatha! song catalog. Back then, these songs were on the fringe of what the established church felt was appropriate for church music but they were being sung by millions of young people around the world.

Today, Maranatha! has become the most recognized and trusted name in churches across the nation and around the world. Those ‘70’s songs, considered edgy and trend-setting back then, are now some of the most beloved worship songs from the last three decades.

The Maranatha! Music legacy is founded on the label’s rich history of expanding their song catalog by discovering and launching well-crafted new songs of faith. Even up through today, powerful worship that resonates with worshippers worldwide from Maranatha! is being catapulted into the church’s enduring worship repertoire as part of their weekly service offerings.

As a result, the Maranatha! Music “Dove” is one of the most widely recognized brands in the world. Every week, multiple millions of Christians see the Maranatha! name on overheads and bulletins as they sing these precious songs.

Maranatha! Music reaches out beyond the church by selling CDs and DVDs featuring these songs in retail outlets like Family Christian Stores, Lifeway Stores, Walmart and Target stores, and online everywhere to the faith-based market. Believers become equipped to take their corporate worship experience from the pulpit to the home front by incorporating these worship resources into their personal daily devotions and meditations.

In 2008, Maranatha! Music will reactivate their participation in live arena and stadium events held across the nation through new partnerships with internationally recognized faith-based movements.

In the early 90’s, Maranatha! Music was the only organization to offer workshops across the nation for church leaders from all denominations to come and gain depth and greater accessibility to Maranatha!’s song catalog through exclusive training and education on the worship movement. These well-attended conferences were called Worship Leader Workshops. These workshops were supported by music companies and service organizations such as Roland Corporation, Yamaha, Taylor Guitars, Peavey, and many others.

Today, the 120,000 church “gate-keepers”, who attended these workshops now look to Maranatha! Music as the leading source of worship products and services. The goodwill developed over the years has only grown stronger, as the roots of Maranatha’s reputation have grown deeper with local church leadership. Workshop programs are currently being developed for the 2009 season.

As a result, unlike any other brand in the world, Maranatha! Music has become synonymous with Christian music today. Each year, the label is dedicated to introducing new songs and promoting its classics to the church through song publishing, music in stores and church leadership training. Maranatha! Music will continue to shepherd the “Jesus Music” of today by serving the church with the song of faith.

The City Harmonic - Heart 2013 English Christian Album Download

Heart is the latest Christian Pop Rock album released by Canadian Christian Rock band, Dove award nominated, three-time covenant award winner, Juno award winner band, The City Harmonic. This album was released worldwide on September 03, 2013 and released under the label Kingsway Music and EMI CMG.

Album Details ::

Album :: Heart

Artist :: The City Harmonic

Release Date :: September 03, 2013

Genre :: Pop/Rock

Label :: Kingsway Music

Location :: Hamilton, ON, CANADA

History ::
2011 Breakout Artist of the Year The City Harmonic barreled its way from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada onto the music scene with Introducing The City Harmonic, an EP featuring “Manifesto,” which soared to No. 5 on iTunes and captivated over a million viewers on YouTube. Top that with becoming the best selling new artist on Billboard’s Top Current Digital Sales Chart (over 80K downloads), and it’s enough, among life’s crazy distractions, to get your attention.

But this band—vocalist/songwriter and pianist Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan— isn’t content to feed the machine or build a fan base so much as to build upon a dream. And not a dream as in a fairy tale. But THE Dream. These four guys grapple with the tension of this world, crafting it into anthems of longing, hope, and love—songs of light for ‘seeing through a glass darkly.’ The City Harmonic makes music that makes you reconsider what you really believe... about yourself, your world and your God.

Launching Oct 18th, The City Harmonic’s Kingsway release, I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME), is one of the most anticipated full-length imports in decades. Co-produced by the band with Jared Fox, I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME) is a journey of imagination, cinematic in composition, and, as is signature for the band, a definitive reflection of The City Harmonic’s organic, communal aesthetic. Intelligent, deeply spiritual and intrinsically ‘real life,’ it reveals the poetic art of The City Harmonic, a band bent on living today for the world to come.

“This project for us was like a journey through a lot of intertwining things,” Elias Dummer says of the band’s full-length debut. “At its heart is the overarching theme of brokenness and redemption, of light and dark, the unveiling of something bigger and better than ourselves.”

The title track and first single, which was written even before the songs on the EP, has always been the lynchpin on which the full-length record would hinge. “The dream, like Martin Luther King’s, is that there is another way,” Elias explains, “that it can be what we say it is, the eventual truth that we will awaken, just as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz awakened from her dream, to find ourselves home at last.”

Like a roadmap with only one route, to sum up the journey of faith and mystery that is I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME) would seemingly deprive the listener of the essence of the experience. But from the opening notes, a deliberate quest unfolds.

Setting the stage for the project as a whole, with ties to John 17, the piano-pounding “Yours” flies in the face of our consumer-driven society, an anthem of surrender that points toward the tension of living in this world as a Christian, while “Spark” introduces the theme of light, hinting at its transforming power:

Could a spark of Your love light the whole Church on fire?
When we care for our neighbour more than we care for style?

“Being a Christian now is more difficult than it was 200 years ago,” Elias says of the thematic trail. “We face tragedy at every turn because of the way our media and culture operates. The stories of this world have let us down. Politics have let us down. We try to cope with it by becoming apathetic or by hiding in the Christian bubble—some altered version of the American dream where living for Christ leads to personal comfort— even misguided Christian stories can let us down and this is the tension of the world we live in. Christianity isn’t a tool to escape suffering, it’s a lens by which we understand it and the means by which we live through it. Our culture is built on the notion that our spirituality can be compartmentalized but, simply put, the Christian story isn’t. We can go from mountaintop to valley in the span of a day, and in the midst of that valley Christ calls us to love our neighbors, our enemies, just as if we were with them on the mountaintop. Apathy may be a natural result of today’s broken world, but the Christian story is that Christ is redeeming his creation and we have a role to play as the body of Christ.”

Inspired by the story of Transfiguration in Matthew 17 and by Martin Luther King’s iconic speech, “Mountaintop” asserts the notion that as ambassadors here, citizens of a Kingdom to come, we are meant to live and love among the ruins. “Jesus talks about countercultural ways of living among the least of these,” Elias continues. “It’s not glamorous. It’s hard work. If we boil it all down to what exists in church, ultimately, we make being a churchgoer a poor substitute for being Jesus in our communities or even engaging our communities at all.”

“Some of the most powerful moments where I recognize God’s presence in a real way have been completely outside the church worship context,” adds Eric. ”We’ve had to grow up out of the default cultural Christian mindset of worship, instead responding to wherever you sense God, which truthfully is everywhere.”

I HAVE A DREAM builds from “Mountaintop” with “Fell Apart,” “Be Still O My Soul” and “Wake Me Up,” pointing to the reality of God in our dark nights of the soul; the light of his presence when we ache for ‘something real in a world of fake.’

Layer by layer, I HAVE A DREAM (IT FEELS LIKE HOME) builds toward the title track, a soaring, melodic anthem that sings the hope of heaven imprinted on our hearts before the foundation of the world. From the romantic interlude “Le Reve,” meaning ‘the dream,’ each song intertwines with another, painting an irresistible picture of grace at work through us. The City Harmonic’s interpretation of I Corinthians 13, “Love” forms a bridge into “Holy (Wedding Day),” a beautiful ballad about the ultimate redemption, the glorious day to come when faith becomes sight. All that remains, besides the bonus version of “Manifesto,” is the heartfelt “Benediction,” which just might be the perfect farewell for any communal act of worship.

Live like you mean it Sing like you’re living for God

Whether in full-on pop explosion or in ethereal ballad, the songs of The City Harmonic connect to that missing piece in all of us and give us cause and permission to sing out. Which frankly is part of the band’s DNA.

That much will never change for The City Harmonic, the curiously captivating sing-along nature of the music they make. It was, and is always, birthed with community expression in mind.

“Music engages us emotionally and intellectually,” says Elias. “There are universal signs of God’s presence in every part of it. ... it’s like a glimpse of something bigger than ourselves, some pervasive and yet otherworldly dream. And if we can somehow spark in people that dream, something they just can't shake, then I hope that will inspire them to sing like every word matters, to live like every day matters, and having tasted heaven, they’ll get on with helping this world feel more like home.”

Jackson was born to Joseph Eugene Jackson (Daddy Gene) and Ruth Musick in Newnan, Georgia, and has four older siblings. As a youth, Jackson listened primarily to gospel music. Otherwise he was not a major music fan. However, a friend of his introduced him to the music of Gene Watson, John Anderson and Hank Williams Jr. Jackson attended the local Elm Street Elementary and Newnan High School, starting a band after high school. After a time, he and his wife of six years, Denise Jackson, moved from Newnan to Nashville where Jackson hoped to pursue music full-time.

Jackson sang in church as a child. He, his father, mother, and four sisters lived in a small home. At one point, his bed was in the hallway for lack of room. His mother lives in the home to this day. His first job, at 12, was in a shoe store. He wrote his first song in 1983.
