Download Of The Week: Get A Free Download Of Kody Gautier’s Song “Swing Low”

This week’s free download comes to us from Kody Gautier.

Based out of Jackson, Mississippi, Kody Gautier has been composing and arranging music for almost a decade. Born with Synesthesia, he has always been in touch with the visual experience music has to offer, “Songs become a moving painting full of colors and textures. I’ve always enjoyed being able to close my eyes and immerse myself into a musical experience”. Inspired by the neoclassical, post-rock, and score- style genres, He dreams of capturing the most epic landscape possible with his music, “I feel like I have to make the biggest music I can possibly imagine in order to do it justice…there’s something beautiful about it”. His music often includes delayed pianos, stacking string arrangements, ambient vocal textures, and post-rock-esque breakdowns. Lyrically, he writes with lines taken directly from the poetry he has written over the past few years. His words encompass emotional contemplations on his relationship with Jesus, his wife, and his reason for living. Music is his voice to God and to himself, and a painting of the world through his eyes.

Kody Gautier has an album out titled The Prevailing and this week we are excited to give you a little preview of the album by offering his song “Swing Low” as our free download of the week. If you like what you hear, be sure to head to iTunes and Amazon Music to pick up a copy of the record now! Happy Listening! :)

Download Of The Week: Get A Free Download Of Marci Coleman’s Single “Wanted”

Madison Line Records Marci Coleman’s E.P. is uplifting and unpredictable, yet it leaps to the soul with its authenticity like alkyd enamels leap to eye. The five song E.P gives nods to worship artists like Lauren Daigle, Ellie Holcomb, and Brooke Fraser, yet maintains a unique artistic voice that is unconventionally Marci. The sound that is woven into the DNA of a girl from the city of soul itself, Memphis, TN.

Upon graduating from Visible Music College in 2014, Marci partnered with Madison Line Records the following year who, along with creative mastermind and rising Memphis producer, Kirk Kienzle, helped sculpt and chisel away her sound, so that the full force of Marci’s personality would be all that is left to communicate with those in need of hearing.The eponymous collection showcases a transformation from previous independent releases with pleasant, laid back tempos to bass led and guitar propelling grooves with “can’t get it out my head” melodies.

Lyrically, each song shares an undeniable theme throughout. Comments Marci, “I write and sing because God has given me these gifts to share with people from every walk of life, encouraging all of us that despite our brokenness, we all have hope through the love of Christ who is in constant, passionate pursuit of us.” Boldly epitomizing this hopeful message, is the lead single, “Wanted”, which portrays a self­reflecting conversation questioning life choices and worth, responded by Christ’s merciful reassurance of acceptance: “Now she spends her moments wondering/’Has my life been good for nothing?’/But Father she can hear You calling through the night:/ ‘I have always loved you, and I’m never gonna let you go/I know you want to, but don’t you give up hope/I am the one who can set you free/Even when you don’t believe it/You are wanted by Me’.”

This week we are so excited to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of Marci’s single “Wanted” off her upcoming EP. If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up a copy of the EP available digitally everywhere August 23. Happy listening! :)

Download Of The Week: Get A Free Download From Sara Groves’ Album Floodplain

Much has been made of classical composers, including Tchaikovsky and Beethoven, getting their best ideas on long walks. But you don’t hear jogging referenced all that much—though in the case of Sara Groves, an indelible, incredible image that inspired her new album Floodplain came during a brisk run along the Mississippi River in Twin Cities area she calls home.

Groves recalls: “I saw this homeless person in a tent and I asked God, ‘Is he poor in spirit? Is he blessed? Do you wish he would get up and do something with his life?’” Then she looked up at the top of a nearby bluff and saw the James J. Hill house, a magnificent brick-and-stone edifice build by the railroad magnate in 1891.

“It’s a symbol of power and it’s easy when you are on a high bluff to say, ‘When are you going to get your act together?’” Groves says. “I was running and weeping. Then I came home and wrote ‘Floodplain,’ and that became the hub—the source of the album.”

“Floodplain is basically God saying to me, ‘Some hearts are built here – they feel more, but then they are also more susceptible to floods. This is not bad: This is where you are.’ I love the floodplain, it’s a beautiful place,” she says. “But I felt so much shame and that I was so responsible for my own struggle. My dear friends who care for me deeply have said, ‘Do you work out?’ Or: ‘You need to think positively.’ But positive thinking is not the gospel that saves me. And that’s what I’m wrestling with on this album: What is the gospel that saves me?”

For Groves the answer has boiled down to a scriptural truth lived out in full: She’s trusted God with all her heart and without leaning on her own understanding. “The boats that have come for me the last two years, in the form of friendship and peers and co-workers—it’s been absolutely stunning,” she says. “My strength has come from my community of friends who have been raising me up.” This week’s featured download comes from Sara Groves’ latest album Floodplain. We are so excited to offer you the title track as this week’s free song. Hope you enjoy it! :)

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!
