Free Download From Lindsay McCaul + Win An Autographed Copy Of Her New Album One More Step!

This week’s free download comes from singer/songwriter and artist Lindsay McCaul. Lindsay McCaul’s sophomore project and Centricity Music debut, One More Step, is artistry born of a willingness to grapple honestly with the questions that arise at that crossroads of brokenness and grace. The project as a whole faithfully chronicles the honest journey of a young woman who has learned that if the expressions of hope and joy are to be real and strong enough to hold us, then they can’t shrink back from the sorrow, the grief, the confusion and the doubt that are also a real part of this shared pilgrim journey. The secret is that it’s all woven together, and if God’s grace meets us, it meets us in the very middle of all that messiness of life, circumstance and emotion. And it’s from that place, and probably only from that place, that songs with the power to give real hope can be born.

“I’ve observed over the last few years,” Lindsay says, “that the songs that connect most with my listeners are the ones I write from a place of wrestling through issues. I write songs about things God is teaching me and the lessons I’m learning—sometimes even from a place of brokenness smack dab in the middle of learning the lesson. A place of holding my hands open before God and asking Him to grow my faith and help my unbelief. People who connect with my songs have told me they appreciate the honesty and transparency of the lyrics, which means the world to me. We’re all struggling somehow, fighting some battle, and if we could all just be brave enough to be honest with one another about our deep, deep need for Jesus, we could be mutually encouraged, strengthened and sharpened.”

While she’s shown herself to be a formidably talented singer, songwriter and performer (having toured with respected artists including Casting Crowns, Mathew West, Sanctus Real, The Afters, Brandon Heath, and Mandisa, among others) Lindsay McCaul’s most powerful asset as an artist might just be her simple willingness to honestly communicate the realities of her life through her songs—and to do so in ways that invite listeners to share the journey and to honestly bring their own stories and struggles to God.

“A woman wrote to me from another country,” Lindsay recalls, “telling me that her husband had passed away recently and that God had been using one of my songs to comfort her and remind her He was with her. Shortly after that a second woman wrote to say that God had used that same song to remind her He was by her side as she went in for cancer surgery. Both of those stories deeply resonated with me, and have been a powerful reminder that God can use a song born from one situation in my own life to connect with, comfort and bring hope to someone in a completely different situation (and continent!). I’m so thankful God uses imperfect people for His glory. It’s amazing and very humbling to find myself a part of that.”

Lindsay McCaul’s sophomore album One More Step releases today and we are so excited to give you a preview of her music with a free download of her song “A Little” off the album One More Step. If you like what you hear and want more, be sure and pick up her album available everywhere today!

Free Download From The Digital Age

This week’s free download comes from the band The Digital Age.

Asked about the art and craft of novel writing, E.L. Doctorow once famously stated: “It’s like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”

That analogy applies to so many creative pursuits—recording an album, for example. But let’s suppose the musical group in question leaves behind a celebrated past to traverse an uncertain future: one so speculative that even the group’s name isn’t quite settled yet when the road trip begins. To take Doctorow’s analogy a step further, it’s like driving a car at night with one headlight, a spotty GPS signal and no gas stations for another hundred miles.

Yet the long, strange trip that saw four core members of the David Crowder*Band become The Digital Age has yielded one stunning testament to multi-dimensional faith: faith in the music, faith expressed through the music and faith the musicians had in each other. The result is a sojourn that, fittingly enough, begins at night and rides straight on to dawn in best concept-album fashion—Evening:Morning.

This week enjoy the upbeat song  “Symphony of Grace” off their album Evening:Morning as our free download of the week. And if you haven’t already check out the rest of the album and pick up your copy!

Free Download From Ian Yates

Here at FreeCCM we are always on the lookout for new artists to introduce you to because who doesn’t love discovering new music. Recently we came across singer/songwriter/artist Ian Yates from the UK and want to share his music with you. Here’s a little more information about Ian:

Ian is married to Kate and lives in Liverpool. He leads musical worship at various events and churches across the UK. Ian is part of the Elim Sound core team, which exists to ‘Inspire, Equip and Encourage the church in worship’. 2013 saw Ian tour all over the UK leading people in worship over 120 times as well as leading at his home church. His heart is to see people come to know their true reality in Christ Jesus, that the world would know that God is a God of love, a good and happy God who longs to have a relationship with His creation.

Ian recently released his latest album DNA, which mixes elements of The 1975, The Killers, Imagine Dragons and U2. More than an album of songs this is a soundtrack realigning us to our original DNA. We are made in the image of God, designed to change the world, born of incorruptible seed. The message throughout DNA is of Gods love, grace and goodness from freedom to innocence, living in the fullness and enjoying our relationship with the Godhead. DNA is full of positive, upbeat, and life changing songs, not neglecting the challenges and questions of life, but declaring that there is a hope. Despite the struggles and pain we can face, God is with us and is always faithful.

So this week we want to give you a little taste of his music and offer his song “Freedom Song” off his album DNA as our free download of the week. Enjoy!

Free Download From Phillips Craig & Dean

This weeks free download comes from Phillips, Craig & Dean. 21 years into their storied career, Phillips Craig & Dean offer a ground-breaking collection of songs poised to minister to the hurting, lead believers in powerful praise, and point the broken to Christ with their latest album. Breathe In speaks life into a world so full of frustration and struggle. “Daily life can be so deflating,” says Randy Phillips. “The single parent who has to be mom and dad. The career that weighs heavily on you. The responsibility to live up to expectations. You get to where it’s metal on metal and you feel oxygen-depleted. This is where you come into the presence of God, and you just kneel before Him, you say, ‘God, I can’t do this anymore, I’m deflated.’ And you begin to breathe in those words of Jesus Christ: ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.’ Breathe in that. It inflates you and helps you to rise above the things that life brings to all of us.”

This week we are offering their song “Our God Is Here” off their album Breathe In as our download of the week. And if you haven’t picked up a copy of the album yet, head over to iTunes and get it for a special price of $6.99 now. But don’t wait this sale won’t last long!

Free Download From Ashes Remain

This week’s free download comes from Ashes Remain’s debut album What I’ve Become. What I’ve Become’s theme is certainly one that almost everyone can relate to, most of all teenagers trying to navigate lives that often seem completely upside down.  According to the band, much of their debut was written from the perspective of what it is like to feel as if there is no hope, where you are your own worst enemy and ultimately what it looks like to go from that very real and dark place to one where there is hope and step into the light. That journey from dark to light isn’t always a swift one and sometimes has to be walked many times, but it is a journey that the band is familiar with and feels called to go on with their fans.

This week enjoy a free download of Ashes Remain’s song “Inside of Me” off their debut album What I’ve Become. If you like what you hear, be sure and check out their new single “Here For A Reason” available digitally now and pick up their debut album What I’ve Become for ONLY $6.99 on iTunes!

Free Download From MercyMe

We hope you’ve been enjoying our MercyMe Month on FreeCCM with lots of awesome giveaways, a chance to win an iPad mini and all things MercyMe. To continue with the MercyMe month madness we want to offer the title track off their album The Hurt & The Healer as a our free download of the week. Enjoy!

The outpouring of emotion that led to “The Hurt & The Healer” was inspired by a tragedy very close to Bart and his family. “My cousin was a firefighter who was killed in the line of duty this past year in Dallas. Watching his wife and two kids go through the healing process, it’s been incredibly tough to say the least,” Bart says quietly. He and his cousin had grown up as close as brothers and the loss has been devastating. Yet he drew comfort from the community of firefighters. “Just seeing how the firefighters have surrounded his family and have been there for them . . . that kind of led me down this path of the whole idea that we can’t just have contact with God, we need a full blown collision with the healer to get through something like this. The idea of the song is to have this collision with the hurt and the healer to where we are changed, whether it’s painful or great or whatever, that we walk away closer to Christ than where we were before.”

Free Download From The Choir + Live Recording Show

With Shadow Weaver, veteran alternative rockers the Choir took their first plunge into crowd-funding. Although the GRAMMY®-nominated group has long relied upon some of pop music’s most ardent supporters, the results were unexpected. “The response was not only stunning, but humbling,” says singer and guitarist Derri Daugherty. “It made us want to deliver, and I think people are going to be blown away by this record. It’s pretty epic.”

A fearless sonic explorer, Daugherty has nurtured shimmering, otherworldly textures by employing his guitar in impressionistic brushstrokes rather than blunt force. He has also dug for visceral tones associated with shoegazer and noise-pop styles. For Shadow Weaver, Daugherty blends these elements with the post-rock ambience of Hammock’s Marc Byrd. “It was so refreshing to play with Marc,” says Daugherty. “Sometimes we’d find something outrageous, and we just poured it on.”

For all the Nashville Choir fans and those living in surrounding cities, you have a special opportunity to attend The Choir’s hometown/live recording show on July 26th. The Choir will be performing at Studio Instrument Rentals (SIR) in Nashville, TN and will be selecting the best versions of the songs from both shows to go on their upcoming live recording album.The first show sold out fast, so a second matinee performance on the same day has been added. Visit The Choir webstore [http://shop.thechoir.net] to purchase your ticket!

This week we have a special double download for our FreeCCM readers. We’re offering TWO SONGS for download this week.
