Free Download From Citizen Way

This week’s free download comes from the band Citizen Way. Citizen Way is a true band of brothers – in the literal sense. This infectious rock four-piece is comprised of two sets of siblings with strong ministry backgrounds and a mutual passion for music that began long before the band officially formed in 2004. Band members Josh and Ben Calhoun and David and Ben Blascoe share a camaraderie that is undeniable and results in a unique, unparalleled connection for a band that has plenty to say.

Here are some fun facts about Citizen Way:
1. Together for 9 years plus now, Citizen Way was previously known as The Least of These.
2. Josh’s favorite verse is 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12.
3. Ben Blascoe speaks fluent German and was a youth pastor for two years.
4. David was primarily a hip-hop producer/musician before joining Citizen Way.
5. Ben Calhoun admits to loving growing up with McGee and Me! and Adventures In Odyssey and has now passed them both onto his daughters.

Free Download From Hawk Nelson’s Album Made!

Some musicians who have played together for nearly a decade, released five albums and played countless shows on countless tours, could turn to album six and toss it together in their sleep. They’ve been doing this a long time; autopilot would actually produce some pretty good music.

But what if those musicians who had written and played together for years didn’t switch to autopilot and, instead, became more intentional in their music than ever before? The result would be a set of songs that sound, lyrically and musically, as if each note and word were precisely paired. The result would be Hawk Nelson’s sixth studio album Made, which released April 2013.

As much change as Hawk Nelson has undergone, new lead singer Jonathan Steingard explains the DNA of the band is still the same. “We’re still that high energy band that a church or youth group would book if they want to have a fun youth night,” says Steingard. We want to take what we’ve been and not leave it behind, but grow it a little bit and hopefully be a lot more intentional about what we’re saying.”

This week enjoy a FREE DOWNLOAD of Hawk Nelson’s song “Fighting For” off their album Made! Enjoy and don’t forget to head over to iTunes to pick up your copy of the album on SALE for $5.99 on iTunes this week!

Free Download From The Afters

The only true alchemy in this world occurs when trials turn to gold, the debris and heartbreak of life transformed and polished into shining beauty by a loving, unseen hand. We try to catch a glimpse of this remarkable change in action, yet human eyes fail us. However, once these storms of life pass, we see the afterglow through signs as sure as Noah’s ancient rainbow. A loved one overcomes. Morning breaks after an impossibly long night. Grace thunders through spiritual drought with a mighty downpour of living water. All of this, and more, affirms the fact that yes, life is beautiful.

“Our hope for our record—and a lot of heartache went into this album—is that it will encourage people to see how God is working in their lives. He’s not just there on the sunny days. No matter what we go through in life, God is still with us and life is beautiful—God is beautiful.”

This week we are offering a free download of The Afters’ song “With You Always” off their album Life Is Beautiful! Enjoy and happy listening!

Free Download From Phil Wickham!

What is worship at its most fundamental, other than humanity’s response to God? What always begins with a revelation of God and then manifests itself in the response to that revelation – is fully realized in what we have come to know as worship. As Phil Wickham puts it, “this revelation demands a response.” In many ways, this album gives voice to our collective response to the many facets of God’s love – His powerful creativity, His promises to us in scripture and ultimately His sacrifice for us on the cross.

What we do in the face of these revelations is our worship and our worship is Response.

This week enjoy a FREE DOWNLOAD of Phil Wickham’s song “All I Am” off his album Response. Enjoy!

Free Album Download From John Mark McMillan on Noisetrade!

This week, enjoy a FREE ALBUM DOWNLOAD from John Mark McMillan on Noisetrade as a benefit for Hydrating Humanity.

Most problems are complicated. War is complicated. Sex slavery is complicated. Terrorism is complicated. Racism is complicated. But there are some issues that aren’t complicated. Sometimes people fight, die, or debase themselves for the lack of basic resources that all too often are just beyond their grasp.

Water is one of these resources. For millions in Kenya and Tanzania, water is just below their feet and it’s relatively inexpensive for us to give it to them.

This is why I support Hydrating Humanity.

Hydrating Humanity is an organization who works to prevent death and disease, end violent conflict, and transform the economic climate of entire communities by providing sustainable, clean water sources in countries like Kenya and Tanzania. They’ve served nearly 100,000 people and have educated twice as many in the area of hygiene training.

Now HH has been presented with an opportunity to provide water to 150,000 school children. However to drill water sources for this entire school district, it will require a much more powerful drill than the one they have.

The new drill will cost $300,000. HH has already been given half of this amount and I want to help them raise the the other $150,000.

Think about it: $150,000 means 150,000 kids won’t have to worry about sickness and death associated with water born diseases. These children won’t have to fight over clean water. These children wont have to miss school because of the long walks they must make daily to get water.

This problem is not complicated: $150,000 for 150,000 kids. $1 for 1 kid.

Download this free record that I co-wrote and co-produced with several friends, and consider leaving a generous tip that will help us change the lives of thousands of children.

Free Download From Audio Adrenaline’s New Album “Sound Of The Saints!”

This week’s FREE DOWNLOAD comes from Audio Adrenaline.

Legacy. It’s a word Adam Agee, Dave Stovall, Brandon Bagby and Jack Campbell are hearing a lot lately. Taking the reins of one of Christian music’s most beloved bands, Audio Adrenaline, from former members Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss—who together saw the group garner two GRAMMY® Awards (Best Rock Gospel Album for Worldwide and Until My Heart Caves In); five GMA Dove Awards; a GOLD®-certified recording (Bloom); and 14 #1 Christian radio singles, including such signature songs as “Big House,” “Get Down” and “Hands and Feet”—the new foursome may have some big shoes to fill, but they also have a new trail to blaze.

Audio Adrenaline’s tenth full-length album, Sound of the Saints, finds the band poised for a fresh season, ready to build upon a storied history with a reenergized passion to reach the next generation of fans. With the full support of founding members Stuart and McGinniss, the group honors its heritage—performing a string of Audio A’s biggest hits in concert—while also bringing their distinct personalities to the music.

“We are excited to inspire a new generation of fans the way Audio A inspired us,” says Agee, former lead singer of Dove Award-winning pop/punk act Stellar Kart, with whom he released five studio albums and garnered multiple hit singles. “These new songs carry on the message of Audio A—positive, encouraging and challenging. God can use all of us, even the underdogs.”

United around a common goal, Audio Adrenaline hopes longtime fans will celebrate with them in this season. “They have always had such great, loyal fans, and that’s what’s so fun,” Agee says of the group’s iconic history. “When you can impact people like that and they stay with you and have your back for 25 years, it’s amazing.”

As for the big shoes this new foursome stands poised to fill? They’re more than ready, Agee assures. “I consider it a privilege to get to carry on this legacy and continue to play music and inspire a new generation the way Mark and Will and the others who built Audio Adrenaline inspired us.”

This week Audio Adrenaline released their newest album Sound of the Saints and we are celebrating with a free download of their song “Move” off the album. Adam Agee says, “The message of ‘Move’ is what Audio A has been about since day one and what we’re hoping to continue into the future. Some of the last words of Jesus were, ‘…go and make disciples of all nations…’ That’s the mission we’re honored to keep—going into the world and taking care of people, taking care of those who can’t take care of themselves.” If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy of the album available everywhere NOW!

Free Download From Shane & Shane’s New Album The Worship Initiative!

In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon writes: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the sun.” For Shane & Shane, the current season can be distilled in one word: discipleship.

After more than a decade of relentless touring, where the duo played everywhere from the college circuit to worship arenas to far-flung places, Shane & Shane have shifted the focus of their ministry. Rather than cramming as many dates on the calendar as demand will allow, the dynamic praise & worship duo—known for their celebrated guitar work and trademark harmonies—are pouring their lives into others, discipling musicians and training them in their craft.

Putting their convictions into practice, the result is The Worship Initiative. What began as an organic spark of an idea has developed into an online resource and community for all things worship. More than just a digital jukebox for worship geeks, however, The Worship Initiative is a one-stop shop for training, a hothouse environment where all—musicians, worship leaders, budding songwriters—can grow and flourish in their craft and creativity and devotion to the Lord.

“Just making music and playing concerts, I know that there’s a small aspect of discipleship involved in that,” Shane Barnard says. “But we want to encourage people to go to the Fountain, enjoy the Fountain, drink from the Fountain. That’s the ethos of The Worship Initiative. Not just training in songwriting and musicianship.”

In addition to kickstarting these resources for worship leaders, there is also a new record, The Worship Initiative. The album showcases mostly other people’s worship songs, infusing them with passion and sweeping guitars and stunning harmonies. “We love this record,” Shane Everett says. “We want to set the table for people to experience the Lord on a daily basis. We want this record to really encourage people in their walk.”

Today Shane & Shane’s newest album The Worship Initiative releases and we want to give you a little taste of what you will hear on this album by offering their song “God of Ages Past” as this week’s free download. “God of Ages Past” is a song written by Shane Barnard that is essentially a vulnerable chitchat with God, one that doesn’t shy away from authentic questions. “It essentially says ‘If you really are my only hope, if you really are all that I need, if you really are the One that satisfies my heart, if those things are all true, then soften this cold, hard heart. Because I’ve got a long way to go to believe that kind of a thing.’” If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy of the record available everywhere now! Enjoy!

Free Download From Laura Story

This week we are offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of the song “Prodigal Song” from Laura Story’s album Blessings. Enjoy!

And be sure to check out the video below to hear Laura share the story behind the song, which is based off the parable of the prodigal son.

“My favorite part of this passage is when the son comes back, and you know, you can just picture this guy being filthy and the father runs to meet him. And something neat to think about is the father running to meet him and it says in scripture, “he saw him when he was still a long way off” and that just connotes that this father was sitting, waiting for his son. Just sitting watching and waiting.

I think of so many people that maybe believed in God as kids and then have gone off and lived however they want to or people that have never really been interested in the claims of Christ. Sometimes I feel like they see God as a policeman in the sky…but that’s very different than how the Bible is—especially in this story when we see a father that’s watching, waiting for his children to return to him.”Laura Story
