His Kids United - Christmas Vol 1 (Sing-A-Long) 2014 Biography and History
Biography ::
Parents of four themselves, His Kids United founders Jimmy and Mai Swan recognized a gap in the supply of uplifting Christian music kids can truly appreciate. A labor of love transformed the best of CCM into an album with which their own children would quickly fall in love.

"Up until now, there have been no other products like His Kids United CDs," says Jimmy Swan, executive producer of the project. "Why wouldn't parents want to invest in positive Christian music for their children? And while the music is focusing on kids ages 5 to 14, we're finding that young adults and even parents enjoy listening to the music, too!"

Proceeds of His Kids United Volume One CDs benefit the Dallas Neighborhood Art & Music School—also known as NAMS School of Music—where all of the tracks are recorded and produced with NAMS students performing on the series.

Swan felt it was paramount to have a consistent group of kids performing on the series, and his friendship with the school's director, Levi Bradford, made the collaboration a natural fit.

"Kids listen to kids," says Swan. "Parents are careful to teach their kids about 'stranger danger.' When an adult approaches a kid, they tend to get shy. But the minute another kid enters the room, there is an instant connection. As a parent, I want to impact my kids with spiritual messages and let them rejoice in the Lord. What is the best way to do this? Let them connect with their peers!"

"Our mission with this series is to give kids an opportunity to be encouraged, inspired and drawn to the Lord through the powerful tool of music, and give them something to relate to," Swan says.

Smalltown Poets - Christmas Time Again 2014 Biography and History
Biography ::
Smalltown Poets burst onto the Christian music scene with their Grammy-nominated self-titled debut on Ardent/Forefront (EMI) in 1997 and released two more albums with the Memphis based label. Three number one singles and a total of ten top ten radio hits helped garner two Best Rock Gospel Grammy nominations, seven Dove Award nominations (including best new artist) and a Billboard Music video award for the band. Their song Anything Genuine was featured on the platinum selling WOW 1999 compilation. In 2004 the band released It’s Later Than It’s Ever Been on BEC(EMI).
 The guys ended a 7-year hiatus from touring and recording in 2011. Over a year in the making, Smalltown Poets Christmas was released November 1st of that year, with their single “Good Christian Men Rejoice” reaching Billboard’s Top 30 songs on Christian radio. Over the two holiday seasons since its release, the band has performed dozens of Christmas concerts across the U.S., in places like Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Charlotte, and many more.

They followed up Smalltown Poets Christmas by releasing a 7-song EP in the fall of 2012 titled “Under the New Sun,” a collection of new songs and older compositions that had never actually been put onto an album.

In the summer of 2014, for the first time since 1998, all 5 of the original band members traveled to Atlanta, GA. to work on a new Christmas project, titled “Christmas Time Again” set for release November 25, 2014.

“Through the miracles of modern technology and recording, we have been able to still create music as a band, even though the 5 of us all live in different cities across the country,” states Michael Johnston, lead vocalist. “This opportunity to all come back together to record has been an amazing experience. It felt a lot like coming home.”

At PledgeMusic.com/smalltownpoets, fans can place pre-orders for “Christmas Time Again” and receive unique and exclusive offerings, including music, merchandise, autographed drumsticks, and even a Christmas card from the band. All supporters will receive the album several weeks ahead of the official release.

Elevation Worship - Wake Up the Wonder 2014 Band Members
Biography ::

So that people far from God will be raised to life in Christ. That was the vision of Elevation Church when it began in 2006 with a group of eight families led by Pastor Steven Furtick. Over the past seven years, that vision has remained the same as our church has grown to seven locations in the Charlotte, NC area, with multiple extension sites around the U.S. and Canada.
From the beginning, Pastor Steven had a vision for Elevation Worship to write and record songs that reflect the church’s journey, experiences, and needs. The fifth album from Elevation Worship, Nothing Is Wasted, features all original songs including the title track, “Greater,” “In Your Presence,” “Be Lifted High,” and “Open Up Our Eyes.”

The songs from Nothing Is Wasted were birthed out of Greater, the most recent book written by Pastor Steven. Greater is based on the life of Elisha, one of the greatest prophets in all of Scripture. Elisha’s story, and the message of the book, is a call to follow Jesus as we lay our lives down to make Him greater. And that is the theme of this album, as each chapter of the book has a corresponding song inspired by that chapter. While this project stands alone as a worship album, there is an even deeper experience readers of the book will have while listening to these 12 songs.

Nothing Is Wasted is also a double album with two iterations of the same songs – The Experience, which was recorded at a night of worship with the people of our church, and The Sessions, a studio version of the same songs where we took the arrangements to a different place creatively.

“We have seen God do the impossible in our church time and time again, and we consider it such an honor to give voice through these songs to the great things He has done,” says Worship Pastor Wade Joye. “Our prayer is that all who hear this project will be inspired to believe that the Lord can do the same in their own lives and churches.”
Elevation Worship's previous 4 albums include the songs "Give Me Faith," "All Things New," "Exalted One," "For The Honor," and "The Church." All albums available at www.elevationworship.com

Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil - Goliath 2014 biography and history
History ::
Filmmaker/writer/producer/recording artist Steve Taylor earned his “Renaissance Man” stripes (Prism Magazine) from a body of work that’s garnered him multiple Grammy, Billboard, Telly, Addy and Dove awards and nominations. A Southern California native, Steve was raised in Denver, Colorado and studied music and film at Colorado University. As a film student Steve wrote and directed the comedy shorts Joe’s Distributing (1980) and Baby Talk (1982), then hit the road for a year as director and co-writer for the musical comedy troupe Jeremiah People. In 1983, Steve began a career as a recording artist that spanned twelve years, selling over one million albums worldwide and garnering him two Grammy nominations for Meltdown (1984) and Squint (1993). In the process, he made history as the only artist to twice win Billboard Music Video Awards for self-directed music videos. As a concert artist, Steve and his band headlined four international tours, including acclaimed appearances at L.A.’s Universal Amphitheater and London’s Hammersmith Odeon. Steve was also lead singer/co-writer in the MCA-signed modern rock band Chagall Guevara (1991).

Steve’s work as a music video director and filmmaker has earned him two Billboard Music Video Awards, as well as Dove, Telly, and Addy Awards. His many credits as a director include music videos for Sixpence None the Richer, Fleming & John, Rich Mullins, Guardian; a documentary on England’s Greenbelt Festival (1989); the long-form Newsboys comedy Down Under The Big Top (1996); and the highly-acclaimed Squint: Movies From The Soundtrack (shot in ten countries around the globe including Vietnam, Nepal, United Arab Emirates and Turkey). Steve’s work has received recurring airplay on major music networks, including VH1 and MTV, and his Sixpence video for “Kiss Me” (filmed in Paris) was featured by VH1 as a “Pop Up Video.”

Meanwhile, as a record producer Steve’s resume includes the Platinum-certified Sixpence None The Richer and three Gold-certified albums for the Newsboys: Going Public, Take Me To Your Leader and Adoration. All four albums earned Grammy nominations. (Steve also contributed to most of the Newboys tracks as a songwriter.) His production efforts have appeared in numerous television programs and motion pictures, including Pump Up The Volume (1991), She’s All That (1999), Snow Day (2000) and Here On Earth (2000). Steve’s greatest success as a producer came with 1999’s #1 international smash hit “Kiss Me,” performed by Sixpence None the Richer. He also produced the band’s follow-up hit, “There She Goes.” In 2002 he produced and co-wrote the Newsboys album Thrive, which yielded two number one singles. He also produced and co-wrote the end title track for the hit animated feature film Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie. In 2003 he produced and co-wrote the hit Newsboys album Adoration, which again yielded two number one singles, including ASCAP Song of the Year recipient “He Reigns.”

In late 1997 Steve launched Squint Entertainment, a record label and film production company. Squint’s worldwide success in the pop music arena was a first for a Nashville-based label, and Squint was subsequently nominated in 2000 by R&R Magazine for Independent Label Of The Year alongside industry stalwarts DreamWorks and Hollywood Records. In addition to Sixpence, Squint’s roster included Chevelle, Burlap To Cashmere, The Insyderz, Waterdeep and hip-hop collective L. A. Symphony. Steve led the company until 2001, when it was sold to AOL/Time Warner.

In 2005 Steve wrapped production on The Second Chance, marking his debut as a feature film director/co-writer/producer. The movie was subsequently picked up for a 2006 nationwide theatrical release by Sony Pictures Releasing.

His latest feature as director/co-writer/producer, Blue Like Jazz, is based on Donald Miller’s New York Times bestselling memoir and stars Marshall Allman (True Blood), Claire Holt (The Vampire Diaries), and Tania Raymonde (Lost). The movie’s funding garnered national press due to its record-setting raise of $345,000 from 4,500 backers on Kickstarter.com. It had its World Premiere in March, 2012 at the South By Southwest Film Festival and was released theatrically nationwide via Roadside Attractions (Winter’s Bone, Margin Call, Mud). Blue Like Jazz won the 2013 Wilbur Award for Best Feature Film, joining past winners The Help, Schindler’s List, and Dead Man Walking.

Steve is the subject of both the 2011 documentary Steve Taylor Is Not Dead by filmmaker Sarah Gibson as well as the multi-artist tribute album I Predict A Clone (1995). He was given the Briner Impact Award in 2005 (named after the late Bob Briner, author of Roaring Lambs), and was recently profiled in Donald Miller’s New York Times bestseller A Million Miles In A Thousand Years. He is also Filmmaker-In-Residence at Lipscomb University’s Film and Creative Media Program.

Steve lives in Nashville with his wife, the artist D.L. Taylor, and their daughter.

Family Force 5 - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen 2014 English Christmas Album Download
God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman is the latest Christian Christmas single released by American Christian Crunk Rock band, Family Force 5. This album was released on November 17, 2014 and released under the label, Word Records.

Family Force 5 - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen 2014 Biography and History
History ::
Alternative Pop/Rock band Family Force 5 releases their Christmas single, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” on November 18. True to form, Family Force 5 adds their signature electronic/dance/pop vibe to this interpretation of the holiday classic, complemented by their trademark over-the-top artwork.
Like many bands, the creation of the song all came down to the right inspiration. Unlike many bands, their inspiration revolved around some cheap green velvet from the basement. Derek Mount (a.k.a., “Chap Stique”) explains: “We were sitting around the studio struggling to find the right sound until Riley (Friesen, producer) grabbed a cheap, velvet Christmas tree costume that was lying in his basement and gave it to Hollywood. As soon as he put on that ridiculous green suit, the rest of us started cracking up and then blared early 2000’s hip-hop through his headphones so he could play along for inspiration.  After a few minutes, Hollywood came up with a ghetto, bouncy beat and the track pretty much wrote itself. Once we had the pocket, the remaining parts felt very natural, and very Family Force 5.”
The single, available at DSPs only, drops just two days after the band wraps their 28-city “We Believe Fall Tour” with the Newsboys and 7eventh Time Down, closing out a dynamic year for the band. In October, they landed their first Hot AC/CHR No. 1 radio hit, “Let It Be Love” from their critically acclaimed album, Time Stands Still, that shot to the top of multiple album charts when it debuted Aug. 5 from Word Entertainment. Additionally, “BZRK (feat. KB),” the first music video from Time Stands Still, became the No. 1 most-viewed music video at MTV.com.
The band recently finished shooting its next highly anticipated video, “Sweep the Leg” and can be seen on Winter Jam 2015, which kicks off its 47-city run January 2. Family Force 5 will be joining label-mates Skillet, Francesca Battistelli, for KING & COUNTRY, Blanca, About A Mile and VERIDIA.

7eventh Time Down - A Christmas Wish List 2014 English Christmas Album Download

7eventh Time Down - A Christmas Wish List 2014 English Christmas Album Download
A Christmas Wish List is the latest Christian Christmas album released by American Christian Rock band, 7eventh Time Down. This album was released on November 10, 2014 and released under the label, BEC Recordings.

Album Details ::

Album :: A Christmas Wish List

Artist :: 7eventh Time Down

Release Date :: November 10, 2014

Genre :: Rock, Holiday, Christmas

Label :: BEC Recordings


Location :: Mount Vernon, KY, USA

7eventh Time Down - A Christmas Wish List 2014 biography and history
History ::
The best songs are those that are heard when we need them most—the ones that become lifelines of truth in the midst of uncertainty. Enter “Just Say Jesus,” the powerful title track and lead single from 7eventh Time Down’s sophomore album.

A little boy hears the song after losing a friend in a biking accident and asks his mom if it was written about the tragedy. A mother and father mourn the one-year anniversary of the death of their daughters, and the song helps them through the tear-filled day. A grown man who lost his father is comforted by the song in the wake of childhood memories.

One song, three very different scenarios.

“It’s way bigger than we are as a band. It’s way bigger than we could’ve hoped for because God’s using it,” offers lead singer Mikey Howard of the single’s resonance. The constant stream of stories from fans remind all four band members—Howard (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Cliff Williams (bass), Eric Van Zant (lead guitar) and Austin Miller (drums)—of the power of a song to impact lives. For the Kentucky-bred foursome who grew up playing music together, it’s a privilege to get to steward this song, as well as the others on their new release.

Their second full-length project on BEC Recordings finds the band sharing some narratives of their own on Just Say Jesus. “There’s a story told in each song,” Williams explains. “We write about living and what inspires us because Christians are real people. As believers, God will inspire you. It’s going to be the biggest part of who you are. That doesn’t mean at times you’re not going to write a song that’s reflective of who you used to be. We’re just southern dudes who’ve got dirty pasts just like all the other people who have come to know God.”

The longtime friends are quick to admit that while brokenness is a part of every believer’s life, it’s important to not remain in a place of guilt and shame. The band isn’t interested in pity parties. Instead, they choose to celebrate redemption through their music. “We only touch on a little bit of the brokenness because we feel like that part of our story is the smallest part,” Howard shares. “We focus on what God has done in us through His son Jesus and the cross… We quickly get to the bigger part of the story, the resurrection part, and that’s what our focus is as a ministry—life, resurrection, joy.”

“There’s a lot of hope in this record,” Van Zant adds. He’s quick to acknowledge the power in the simplicity of the new album’s title: “The name of Jesus, nothing trumps that. That’s it. Nothing trumps the name of Jesus ever.”

While every bit as loud and hook-laden as their 2011 debut, Just Say Jesus is a more aggressive, focused and cohesive effort. All four members co-wrote the majority of the 10 tracks, while also lyrically collaborating with respected songwriters Ian Eskelin, Jeff Pardo and Tony Wood. Eskelin (Stellar Kart, Hawk Nelson) produced two of the tracks, while Howard produced the additional eight—a daunting, yet rewarding task for the front man. “It was a great experience. I learned so much,” Howard says. “I had [some producer friends] on speed dial, and if I had questions, I would call them, and they just really sewed into me as a producer and as a writer and just helped me hone in on the craft.”

Ironically, the majority of the album was cut in Howard’s basement studio in Mount Vernon, Ky., the same basement of his childhood home where the band recorded their first song when they were young teens.

Songs like the anthemic “Hurricanes,” the blazing “Renegade” and the iconic “Religious and Famous” provide a sonic assault to the senses, while lyrically radiating a clear message of truth. Miller hopes listeners will find their voice amidst the songs. “As Christians, a lot of times, we get caught up in how to word [our] prayers,” he says, “or you feel like you have to be really philosophical in everything you do, but in reality the Gospel’s simple, and it’s true.”

The second time around, every note and lyric is etched with intentionality. The up-tempo “One I’m Running To” harbors a melody line that sets the pace of racing toward God as the title implies. “This song is about those moments where you have a really big choice to let the weight of life totally crush you...or in spite of that, in that moment making the choice to run toward Christ as fast as you can because you know He’s the only way out, those moments when we choose Christ above all else,” Howard reflects.

For 7eventh Time Down, every song is an opportunity for ministry. The band has toured with a long list of impressive artists, including Newsboys, for King & Country, KJ-52, Manafest, Fireflight and Stellar Kart, among others, and was recently a featured artist on Air 1’s popular “Club Awesome Tour.” Logging nearly 100 shows a year, the band members are true road warriors, carrying full production for their live shows since their earliest days together, handling everything from sound and lighting to stage set-up themselves.

In an effort to expand their ministry beyond their music, the band partners with CURE International, a non-profit that operates hospitals and programs in 27 countries worldwide where patients receive surgical treatment and have the opportunity to hear the Gospel. During the “Club Awesome Tour” alone, more than 38 surgeries were funded.

“It’s literally what Jesus did. He showed up in town; He taught them, and then He healed the sick. He healed them and they received Christ,” Williams observes. “That’s what’s happening with CURE International. They’re going and performing surgeries, healing afflictions and sharing the love of God.”

Whether it’s through a radio single, a tour or their work with CURE International, 7eventh Time Down desires to carry the banner that the God they serve is bigger than any circumstance, any hurt or any music career. Howard aptly sums up the heart of their message as a band: “We just want to gently remind people that no matter what kind of junk you’re carrying around, Jesus is enough.”

Michael W. Smith & Friends - The Spirit Of Christmas 2014 Biography and history
Biography ::
Michael Whitaker Smith was born October 7, 1957 to Paul and Barbara Smith in Kenova, West Virginia. A sister named Kim would follow. Michael was a typical boy – active in baseball, his family’s church activities, and playing piano. But in not-so-typical fashion, he wrote his first song at age five. At the age of ten, he made a decision to give his life to Christ. He dreamed of playing professional baseball.

Michael attended college at Marshall University in West Virginia but after one semester dropped out to move to Nashville and pursue a career in music. (side note trivia: In 1992 Michael received an honorary Doctorate of Music degree from Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi, West Virginia.)

The years 1979-1981 are best written by Michael himself in his book It’s Time To Be Bold. From chapter 1, we read:

    While playing keyboards for the group Higher Ground, I signed my first songwriting contract with Paragon/Benson Publishing Company. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. I was knocking down $200 a week to do something that I loved. Writing songs for a living meant that I didn’t have to wait tables anymore, or work at Coca-Cola, or plant shrubs with a landscaping company.

    I thought my life had peaked and God didn’t have to do anything else for me. I wasn’t looking for a record deal, a higher salary, or even a girlfriend – and especially not a wife. Writing music, I was as content as I’d ever been, and I labored at it sixteen hours a day. Then one afternoon while I was working in my office, Deborah Kay Davis walked by.

    I thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. When she passed by, it was all over for me. I was blown away. Totally head over heels in love. I frantically picked up the phone and called my mother in West Virginia.

    "Mom, I can’t believe it. You’re not going to believe this, Mom. I just saw the girl I’m going to marry.

    "What’s her name?"

    "I don’t know, Mom. I haven’t met her yet. But I gotta go. I’ll find out and call you back."

    My poor mother! She must have thought I’d lost my mind. But I’d never been so clearheaded in my life.

    I left my office and went searching for this girl in the warehouse. Sherlock Holmes couldn’t have done a better job of tracking her down, and eventually I found myself standing outside the ladies’ restroom, waiting for her to emerge. She walked out. I introduced myself. We were engaged three and a half weeks later – and married four months after that!

In 1982, Michael was asked to play keyboards in a band that was backing up young artist Amy Grant. He also continued to write songs for himself.

The story goes that Amy’s managers, Mike Blanton and Dan Harrell could not find a Christian record label that would sign Michael or a young New Yorker named Kathy Troccoli. Believing so much in these two young talents, they started Reunion Records.

Michael made his very first record in 1983 and it was called “Michael W. Smith Project.” Michael wrote all the music and wife Debbie wrote the lyrics. The now famous song “Friends” debuted on this album. Michael continued to tour with Amy, now as her opening act.

From there – the records kept coming, and then the books as well:

    1984 – the album “Michael W. Smith 2”
    1985 – the video “Michael W. Smith Live in Concert”
    1986 – the album “The Big Picture” and Michael’s first book Old Enough to Know
    1987 – the album “The Live Set” and the video “The Big Picture Tour”
    1988 – the album “i 2 (EYE)”
    1989 – the album “Christmas”
    1990 – the album “Go West Young Man” which saw the song “Place in This World” hit the top 5 in pop charts, and helped earn him American Music Award’s New Artist of the Year.
    1992 – the album “Change Your World”
    1993 – the album “The First Decade” (a best-of album) as well as a limited edition 2-cd boxed set entitled “The Wonder Years.”
    1995 – the album “I’ll Lead You Home”
    1997 – the book It’s Time to Be Bold and the book Friends Are Friends Forever
    1998 – the album “Live the Life” and the book Your Place In This World and
    at Christmas his second Christmas album “Christmastime”
    1999 – the album “This Is Your Time,” the book This Is Your Time, as well as
    a cookbook with his mom entitled Cooking with Smitty’s Mom and a children’s book co-authored with wife Debbie entitled Where’s Whitney?
    2000 – the album “Freedom”
    2001 – the book I Will Be Your Friend and the album “Worship
    2002 – the book Worship, the book The Price of Freedom the vhs/dvd “Worship” and the album “Worship Again”
    2003 – the CD box set “The Gospels Come to Life” (narration of the four gospels), a DVD “The Bigger Picture” and the album “The Second Decade” with a limited edition DVD
    2004 – album “Healing Rain”
    2006 – the movie and soundtrack “The Second Chance
    2006 – the album “Stand”
    2007 – the album “It’s A Wonderful Christmas”
    2008 – the album “A New Hallelujah”
    2009 – the live dvd “A New Hallelujah”
    2010 - the album"Wonder"
    2011 - the album "Glory"


In the midst of 22 albums and ten books as well as the awards (Dove awards and Grammy awards among them), Michael and Debbie were blessed with five children: Ryan, Whitney, Tyler, Emily and Anna; and in recent years the family has continued to expand as his children have expanding families of their own.

In 1994, Michael founded a teen club called Rocketown in an effort to provide a place for teens to gather in a safe, loving environment. A warehouse in the Cool Springs area of Brentwood, TN was converted into a dance floor, rooms with pool tables and a coffeehouse. After three years, the club closed. The leadership continued to build a ministry devoted to kids, and a new site in downtown Nashville that reopened in 2003. Visit Rocketown at www.rcktwn.com.

In 1996, Michael founded Rocketown Records with Reunion executive Don Donahue and launched their first artist, Chris Rice. Michael and Don shared a dream to be part of a label where great songs were the focus, where artists, not acts, were developed. They wanted a label that felt like a family. And what a family it is! Go to www.rocketownrecords.com to learn more!

In 1999, a prayer group of Michael and Debbie’s that had been meeting at their farm, had blossomed into what they felt had become a church body. Gathering up some leadership, Michael and Debbie helped start New River Fellowship with close leadership by Pastor and mentor Don Finto, former senior pastor of Nashville’s Belmont Church where Michael and Debbie had attended for many years. Visit New River Fellowship at www.newriverfellowship.com. Throughout his career, Michael has had the opportunity to sing for Presidents and national leaders, and counts among his friends the Reverend Billy Graham and his son, Franklin Graham. He is active in Billy Graham Crusades as well as The Samaritan’s Purse, the ministry headed by Franklin Graham.

But for all of Michael’s accolades, for his involvement in his teen outreach Rocketown, leadership in his local church body, the business of being an artist, an author and a record label executive, Michael sums up his life as this, “to be remembered as a God-fearing man who loved his wife and kids well.

Citizens & Saints - Join the Triumph (2014) Biography and History
Biography ::
Zach Bolen isn’t interested in debating differences. As the lead singer and songwriter for worship band under the new moniker Citizens & Saints, he hopes his music can do one thing—unite the Church by proclaiming the gospel through song.

“I feel like there’s so much division right now,” he says. “It’s really disheartening. I’m hopeful that that somehow our music can bring some unity. We might have different views, but we’re ultimately citizens. We’re part of the same kingdom.”

It’s a message Zach and his bandmates, Nate Garvey (keys), Nathan Furtado (bass), Spencer Abbott (guitar), Jeremy Kelderman (percussion), Adam Skatula (drums) and Brian Eichelberger (co-writer/producer/keys), have woven into their sophomore release on BEC Recordings. Join the Triumph reminds the local church that they’re part of the big-“C” Church—a victorious body whose sole job is to proclaim God’s Kingdom across the Earth.

The collection of revisited hymns and original songs advances the approach of Citizens’ self-titled debut album, which was released on BEC Recordings and Mars Hill Music in 2013. While Citizens & Saints hit Billboard’s Christian chart at #20 and #6 on its Top Heatseekers chart and received critical acclaim, the biggest signals of success are comments about the songs being cross-generational: “We’ve been hearing stories about kids singing these songs all the way up to grandmas and grandpas joining in,” Zach says.

The Holy Spirit used this realization to expand their viewpoint of music and ministry to be about “the entire church,” not just for specific demographic. “It’s actually for all people who are a part of the body of Christ.”

This lesson in unity is one playing out in the band itself. While Citizens was formed in 2011 when Zach served as the worship leader for Mars Hill U-district campus in Seattle, his departure from his position with the mega-church in 2014 led to a defining moment when the band made a “strong commitment to one another” to continue making music—no matter where they live, work and attend church with their growing families.

“I think that just shows the unity that Jesus brings in the Church. The primary thing for us will always be to serve the local church whether or not Citizens is playing together as a band at a specific church.”

Other differences mark the album. Whereas Citizens reflected the rawness of leading college students in worship in an old church building on Sunday nights, Join the Triumph emerges with skillful signs of maturation. Questions like “Is this melody actually sing-able?” and “Does this theme actually connect with a broad audience or is it so specific that it’s too personal?” were questions the band learned to ask with their first recording and sought to perfect on the second. Sonically Join the Triumph melds musical influences and eras. “It doesn’t bother me at all to say that we’re worship band, but I think that we pull from all kinds of different genres. I really love synth stuff, but I also love the rawness of electric guitars and big drums, so we’re kind of just taking from everything we love.”

This sophomore album brings a new chapter for the band with Zach no longer on staff at Mars Hill and the recent announcement of their new name Citizens & Saints. After releasing their earlier projects, it came to their attention that there was a UK band that was already working under the Citizens name. In a season of change, the band prayerfully changed their name to “Citizens & Saints.”

“Ephesians 2:19, where we got the name Citizens from is a celebration passage. From the beginning it was important as band to have a name that focused more on the people of God participating in joyful and expressive worship of Jesus, then attention being placed on a band, it’s songs or it’s name,” shares Zach. “Moving forward we feel as though “Citizens & Saints,” better exemplifies Ephesians 2:19. It is our goal to be clear in our presentation of the gospel. To put it plainly, the citizens and saints party ain’t over and it will continue long into eternity. We are grateful for the work that God has called us to, and will continue to do, now through “Citizens & Saints.”

At the end of the day, Zach realizes what connects musically with one may not connect with another. But he hopes there’s one thing all followers of Jesus can connect with: the Gospel. “What I love about worship music and what I love about both of these albums is that if we’ve been faithful to communicate what the Word is saying, then at the very least we can agree upon that.”

Kim Walker-Smith [Jesus Culture] - When Christmas Comes (2014) Biography and History
History ::
Jesus Culture is a global movement, awakening hearts to worship and demonstrate the love and power of God wherever we go. We are passionate to see campuses, cities and nations transformed and we have a mandate: to raise, equip, and mobilize those who were coming to fulfill the call of God on their lives. We do this through the ministry of conferences, events, worship, campus ministries, curriculums, resources and now a local church. Jesus Culture is continuing to grow in bringing young people into encounters with Jesus and equipping them to minister His heart to a broken world…but it wasn’t always this way. Here’s a brief look into the beginnings of our ministry.

Jesus Culture Music ::
Jesus Culture Music exists to ignite revival in the nations of the earth. Our heart is to compel the Body of Christ to radically abandon itself to a lifestyle of worship, motivated by a passion to see God receive the glory that is due His name. We long for Jesus to be exalted in the nations and for His manifest presence to invade this world. Although we aspire for people to sing great worship songs, we are primarily committed to see them come into His presence through worship… to encounter His extravagant love and raw power.
