Get A Free Download From Jason Gray’s New Album!

When Jason Gray explains that his last three records were written in the hardest years of his life, he’s not being dramatic. He’s just stating facts. And when he says that his new Centricity Music project—Where the Light Gets In—is a brighter and more hope-centered travelogue of the next leg of that journey through deep sorrows, he’s not suggesting easy platitudes, but an active sense of God’s redemptive presence at work even in the midst of difficulties.

As a project, Where the Light Gets In is a stirring weave of sorrow and light and hope and even of celebration. “My last album was all about grief,” he says, “and so I wanted to make a statement right at the beginning of this record that it’s about hope and that it’s got some fun in it too. So I put Learning at the beginning of the record. I’m usually annoyed by empowerment anthems because I think they can be self-focused and ignore a lot of reality, but in this case I thought, ‘I want to tweak the genre to create an empowerment anthem that’s based, not on my own power, but on a real confidence in the grace of God.’”

That hard-won confidence in grace emerges in a dozen different ways as the dominant theme of Jason Gray’s new project. It’s the idea that no matter what we’ve been through, no matter how deep our wounds, we are still truly and deeply known and held and forgiven and loved, that our lives still have meaning and our identities are still rooted in a joyous hope and a call to bring all that we are, even our brokenness—perhaps especially our brokenness—as means by which we can love and serve others in desperate need of that same hope.

This week we are so excited to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of Jason’s song “Resurrection” of this album as our free download of the week. If you like what you hear be sure to pick up a copy of the album available everywhere now!

Get A Free Download Of Ian Yates New Single!

A while back we introduced you to an artist named Ian Yates. 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 is currently working on his next album Awaken to Love, set to release this fall.

“Dream Again” is the second single from Ian’s highly anticipated fourth album Awaken To Love.

Born out of a difficult season of questioning and feeling like he couldn’t keep going with music anymore. Ian felt God speak so strongly to him to dream again. “I have given you a unique gifting and message, start to Dream again.” Ian began to dream again for his city Liverpool, his songs and that history can be made.

With it’s prophetic voice “Dream Again” encourages, inspires and challenges the listener to dream again. To lift up their heart from disappointment, lift up their head from broken dreams and go after all God has called them too.

Ian says “I pray this song is like touch paper and begins to set alight dormant and broken dreams. So many of us lay down our desires and passions through fear, the busyness of life and difficult circumstances. I firmly believe God is telling us to dream again, to see the kingdom of heaven touch earth. You are unique. You are His child. He has called you for greater things.”

This week we are so excited to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of Ian’s brand new single. We hope you enjoy!

Get A Free Download From John Tibbs!

When passion, talent and determination intersect, great things can happen. John Tibbs is a prime example. Before joining the FairTrade Services family and recording his auspicious label debut, Dead Man Walking, the singer/songwriter had already built a strong foundation for his quickly burgeoning career.

A critically acclaimed independent success story—his discography includes Swallowing Death, Breathing Life in 2012, as well as 2013’s Anchor—John’s heartland sound and honest lyrics have earned him a formidable touring platform and household recognition among Noisetrade consumers.

With an earnest, evocative voice and genuine songs that naturally connect with listeners, it’s an exciting time for the Kentucky-born artist. He has already toured with such leading names as Newsboys, Crowder, Tenth Avenue North, Unspoken, Gungor and Audrey Assad, and he’ll be joining Matt Maher on the road later this spring. John’s engaging live performances have more than whet fans’ appetites for his highly anticipated full-length debut.

One listen to the soulful, vulnerable title track (featuring Ellie Holcomb), the edgy truth of “Silver In Stone” or the shimmering buoyancy of “Hope,” it’s hard to imagine this pastor’s kid—who grew up immersed in a variety of musical influences—do anything but write songs and sing.

“There’s a lot of old school country and church hymn-influences in my music,” John says of his roots-rock orientation. “When I was about 6-years-old, my dad took a position at a church in Punxsutawney, in western Pennsylvania. Growing up there, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp and Tom Petty became the soundtrack of my youth.”

As a teen, John began to feel the call to music ministry. “I was an athlete in high school and anytime I was outside the house that’s what I was doing,” he recalls. “Then I attended a Crowder concert in junior high and there was something very special about that experience. His music connected so many different types of people to each other and to Jesus. I thought, ‘I have to do this,’ although I didn’t fully understand at that time how it would come to be.”

After graduating from Anderson University in central Indiana, John spent a year as a worship leader at nearby Madison Park Church, where he began to truly understand his calling. “I had written songs that ministered to people at our church so I started wondering how I could share my music beyond our congregation,” he says. “I began to play at other churches, then camps and conferences—God continued to open door after door.” John also developed an online community of more than 100,000 supporters who helped crowd-fund some of his independent recordings, and it wasn’t long before he’d piqued the interest of FairTrade.

Produced by Ben Shive (Rend Collective, Colony House), John’s label debut— Dead Man Walking—is filled with hearty, ear-grabbing melodies and honest, autobiographical lyrics. His transparency is like an emotional magnet pulling the listener deeper into each song. “I didn’t want people to turn this record on and hear a cute or polished song,” he says. “I want people to listen to the record and hear heart.”

He succeeds in serving up his heart in a powerful way on such tracks as the infectious “Raining Pouring” and the potent truth of “Anchor.” The latter is particularly meaningful to John, chronicling his own journey from fear to faith. “I was trying to figure out how I was going to be able to do music full time, because my job at the church was our only income,” he says. “The song talks about going out into the ocean; I’m in the boat and I don’t know the places I’m headed or the people I’m going to see. I don’t know how it’s going to end up, but I just know God is on board too.”

John penned eight of the album’s 10 selections, including “Abraham,” a hopeful track inspired by Exodus. “I connect to the story of the Jewish people. It just paints a beautiful picture of God’s strength and consistency, yet He’s so gentle,” John says. “God went above and beyond to get His people out of Egypt, though they cursed Him and turned away. I do that daily, but God has shown me time and again how good He is in spite of me. It all comes back to Him.”

“Everything I Need” holds deep personal significance for John in light of his struggle with a lifelong speech impairment. “The song says, ‘Though my weakness ties my tongue, I sing of every good You’ve done.’ It is exhausting to try to hide something,” he shares of the issue he managed to conceal for many years. “Culture says you have to be perfect and have all the answers, but that isn’t a healthy attitude. I started being open about my speech difficulties in hopes that it would encourage other people. 2 Corinthians 12:9 says ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.’ All of us have our struggles, but our God is active in everything.”

Dead Man Walking showcases John Tibbs’ heartfelt explorations of faith and his insightful revelations about what it means to be a child of God in a complicated world. “Everyone struggles and there are things in each of our lives that act as chains and keep us from being the people God has called us to be,” he says, “Christ came and threw those chains off and because of that there’s Hope and Peace. I want this to be an album that acknowledges our struggles and then points people to Jesus.”

This week we are so excited be able to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of John Tibbs’ song “Anchor” off his debut album. If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy available everywhere! Happy listening!

Free Download From Beautiful Eulogy!

Beautiful Eulogy is a Portland, Oregon-based group made up of artists Braille, Odd Thomas and Courtland Urbano. The group introduces a distinct and directive sound that’s driven by a desire to worship and glorify the God of the Bible, based in the context of its members’ hip-hop roots and shaped by influences like electronic music, folk songs and old hymns.

The natural way Beautiful Eulogy came together parallels its organic creative process. As its members cooperated on various musical and church-related projects, they realized their chemistry and the opportunity before them to form a completely collaborative group that would emphasize a new gestalt — one that would allow them to steer away from a pure hip-hop trajectory while holding onto its origins, and that would free them from the courses of their solo careers while applying their individual talents to a collective. “We’re reinventing ourselves together,” the group says. Its members enjoy their creative freedom within self-imposed boundaries, by predefining their work’s message, sound and purpose.

This type of intentionality is central to the way Beautiful Eulogy creates songs, settling on concepts and driving them through a process and reprocess of musical and lyrical shaping. The resulting tracks are lyric-driven, but contain an equally deliberate musical backdrop. This panorama enhances and clarifies the presentation of weighty spiritual and theological truths, inviting listeners into the artists’ ideas about and experiences of God. Listeners may have first heard Beautiful Eulogy on Rapzilla’s King Kulture compilation, or featured on “Misconceptions,” a track from Lecrae’s Church Clothes mixtape. This week we are excited to give you a little taste of Beautiful Eulogy’s music by offering you a FREE DOWNLOAD of their song Covet off their album Selected Songs. Enjoy!

Get A Free Download From Lauren Daigle’s How Can It Be Deluxe Edition!

My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”

Life experience often serves to sharpen a songwriter’s edge and provide them with a more colorful palette to draw from when creating images with their music. Though she’s young, Lauren Daigle has lived a lot of life and those experiences—some challenging and others exhilarating—enrich her perspective and create her heartfelt worship music.

Blessed with a voice that is both smoky and sweet, Daigle has forged a unique sound that combines the soulful, heart-in-throat vulnerability of Adele, with the passionate fire to serve God that Daigle admires in Brooke Fraser. Her Centricity Music debut, How Can It Be, is ripe with the kind of compelling lyrics and engaging melodies that invite listeners to draw closer to their creator, and that’s just what Daigle had in mind.

“There’s a continuing theme on this record—trust,” says Daigle. “My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”

Faith and music have been intertwined in the Louisiana native’s life since birth. Growing up in a region steeped in blues, country, zydeco and Cajun music has inspired her to frame her worship music in a unique light. But Daigle admits she almost pushed music to the backburner, unsure if it was her true calling, until a devastating illness brought her young life into sharper focus. “It honestly was one of the best things that had happened to me,” Daigle says of contracting a debilitating virus when she was 15 that kept her out of school for nearly two years. “I was a sophomore living life and having a blast. Then there was a big halt. Because my illness was an immune deficiency, anything that was airborne I’d catch it. If any friends were sick I couldn’t be around them, so going to school became off limits.”

In the quiet solitude forced upon her by this condition, God spoke. “The Lord began to just pour in passion for music, singing and writing songs,” says Daigle. “When I was six-years-old people would say, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ And I’d say, ‘I want to be a singer.’ My mom called the house, ‘The Music Box,’ because I’d walk around the house singing all the time. But when I got older I went to this college prep school and felt I needed to get serious, so I thought I’d go into the medical field and do mission work. Then when the Lord brought me into that solitude I was like, ‘How did I get distracted from what my true passion is? I NEED to be singing.’ He really brought me through all of that season to pour in a passion for ministry and a passion for music.”

Once she was well, Daigle attended a charter school and completed a year and a half of class work in six months and actually graduated early. She took a year off from school, traveling to Brazil to do mission work, before enrolling at Louisiana State University to pursue a degree in Child and Family Studies, but music was always on her agenda. She led worship at her church, became an American Idol contender and sang on an EP a local band was recording. It was that gig that led to an invitation from Centricity Music to attend a retreat in Washington State. When the lead singer of the band had an emergency appendectomy, Daigle stepped in and immediately impressed label execs that encouraged her to come to Nashville.

“After the first week of being in Music City I thought, ‘Ok, I’m moving to Nashville!’” Daigle says of her current home. She began collaborating with local songwriters, sang background vocals on Jason Gray’s hit “Nothing Is Wasted” and landed her own deal with Centricity Music. She made her debut with the beautiful Christmas anthem “Light of the World,” which served as an appetizer that left fans anxiously awaiting her first project.

Produced by Paul Mabury (Brooke Fraser, Hillsong, One Sonic Society), Daigle’s How Can It Be is a compelling collection of songs that celebrate God’s faithfulness with a sense of wonder and awe.

In a short time, Lauren Daigle has made an impressive mark on the Christian music scene. She appeared on Jason Gray’s Christmas tour and opened for Aaron Shust on the Morning Rises trek. She sang with Hillsong at a mega church in Birmingham, an experience she’ll always treasure, and leads worship three or four Sundays a month at Atlanta’s North Point Community Church, pastored by Andy Stanley. She has a heart for victims of human trafficking, a cause she has given her time and energy to since her college days.

Lauren Daigle has a passion to see lives changed and knows that music is a powerful vehicle. “I hope that as these songs hit peoples’ ears, they don’t hear my voice, they don’t hear really good production, so they can say, ‘Whoa Lord, I’m encountering YOU right now,’” says Daigle. “That’s my heart’s cry for How Can It Be. That people are moved and lives get changed because they get to encounter more about God and see His character.”

Lauren recently released a special deluxe edition of her album How Can It Be which features the hit songs “Trust In You,” “First,” & “How Can It Be” plus 2 brand new songs, 2 video session tracks, & How Can It Be (Live)! And this week we are so excited to be able to offer you a free download of her song “Come Alive (Dry Bones)” off that album. If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy of the album available everywhere now! Enjoy!

Enjoy A Free Download From Jordan Feliz’s Brand New Album The River!

Some years from now, the name Jordan Feliz might be the obvious answer to a trivia question that goes something like this:

What artist launched his career as a hard-touring heavy metal singer, then switched gears to become a church worship leader, before finally signing a Nashville record deal and emerging as a preeminent soulful-r&b-groove-pop artist in CCM?

Well, if the question comes up some day, you’ll already know the answer: Jordan Feliz.

Fronting the West Coast buzz band A Current Affair gave Jordan’s powerful vocals some major exposure right out of high school. The band performed on the Warped Tour and other high profile gigs before dissolving. But heavy metal was never Jordan’s passion; it was just a fun experience with his friends and a way to stretch musically. As a child, Jordan had grown up with R&B artists like Sam Cooke and Earth Wind & Fire providing the soundtrack to frequent family road trips. Artists from what his father called “the good music era.” Those were the sounds and stylings that stuck in Jordan’s musical memory and by the time he was old enough to realize that his own singing voice was a gift, it was those early groove-funk-soul singers that had shaped his personal aesthetic. If he was going to make records, those were the kind of influences he wanted to draw from. Which brings us back to that Nashville record deal he signed with Centricity Music.

Jordan Feliz’s first full-length project, The River, reinterprets the rich influence of 70’s sensibilities in a modern pop context. Tag-team produced by Colby Wedgeworth (Lincoln Brewster, The Main, Lydia) and Josh Silverberg (Newsboys, Jon Foreman, Plumb), The River is packed with radio-friendly pop melodies that manage to hit those marks without compromising Jordan’s unique musical personality. The best example of his singular vision is the record’s powerhouse title track and first single, “The River,” which has already spent ten weeks on the radio charts at #1. While it sounds like a pulse-quickening mega-hit from the first listen—instantly singable and repeatedly listenable—”The River” actually rides on a deep current of soul-driven funk influence that serves to set it apart from other contemporary radio fare.

“I’m a big melody guy,” Jordan admits, “and musically “The River” is my own personal happy place. It’s a great driving groove that just feels good to sing. The song itself is an invitation to anyone who hears it—whether they’re stuck in pride and legalism or wallowing down in the mess they’ve made of their lives—it’s an invitation to take whatever we have and to run to Jesus. It’s an invitation to go down in amazing grace and to rise up being made new.”

Having just navigated a long and stormy transition after leaving the security of local music connections and a church staff position in California in order to move to Tennessee, Jordan Feliz and his wife experienced firsthand what it means to learn to rest in the simplicity of faith in a Father who daily provides for the needs of His children. In fact, they set out from California without even enough money to make it past Phoenix. But along each leg of the journey some music gig opened up that provided enough funds to drive the next leg. By the time they reached their new home, Jordan had actually made several hundred dollars from the move.

“We believed God had made it clear from the beginning we should move to Nashville,” Jordan says, “but that didn’t mean it was easy. After we got here I couldn’t find a job. My wife and I were sharing one car. I was posting handyman ads on Craigslist and working as a valet downtown. I could hardly get any people to write songs with me.”

At that point Jordan and his wife found out they were pregnant. The uncertainties and pressures and responsibilities were quickly mounting. Their whole lives felt like they were up in the air. Jordan describes it as a frightening time, but one that drove them to prayer and dependence on God. And in amazing fashion, they saw those prayers begin to be answered.

“The last year has just been like a whirlwind of good things falling into place,” Jordan says. “I signed the record deal with Centricity in February of 2015 and I finished my EP July 5th. Then, I actually won a brand new car, completely out of the blue, right before my daughter was born July 20th. My first single went to radio July 31st and shot up to #1, and the love I’ve received from radio and from new fans has been an incredible blessing. I got a slot on the Big Daddy Weave Tour which has been an amazing experience as well. And then we went right back in the studio to finish the full-length project. My life feels like it’s gone from zero to one hundred miles per hour in a blink! After so much difficulty and uncertainty, God answered our prayers. He is there for all of us, and all we have to do is remain faithful.”
