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.”

This week we are so excited to be able to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of Jordan Feliz’s song “Live It Out” off his album The River. If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up a copy of the album available everywhere now!

Free Download 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.”

“Watching the guys practice for this tour and record has been such a joy,” Stuart affirms. “Hearing the old classics with the new Audio A message makes me proud to be part of a legacy that continues to focus on the Glory of Christ and the absolute joy of becoming His hands and feet.”

Bassist Stovall, originally signed to Flicker Records as part of the band Wavorly, cites Audio A among his leading musical influences. “These guys have been my heroes,” he says. “I was just a 12-year-old kid in a crowd, thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, these guys are excellent musicians; they’re making great music; and they’re Christians. They’re the coolest people I know.’ That inspired a career for me, so my personal goal with the band is to become what the older generation of Audio A was to me.”

Bagby, who was part of Know Hope Collective—an acclaimed worship ensemble birthed by Stuart and McGinniss which, among others, included David Leonard and Leslie Jordan of All Sons & Daughters—is also an accomplished visual artist and was a sought-after session guitarist prior to joining the new Audio A lineup. Meanwhile, Campbell, the group’s youngest member, grew up listening to Christian rock in his native Australia. “I think I was 9 when my parents gave me a drum kit, and they regretted it,” he laughs, “but it’s the best thing they ever bought me.”

Produced by GRAMMY® winner Seth Mosley (Jeremy Camp, for KING & COUNTRY) and Joshua Silverberg (Newsboys, Michael W. Smith), Sound of the Saints offers something for a broad spectrum of tastes, while building on the pop/rock foundation laid by the numerous award-winning songs in the band’s large discography.

Agee wants the band’s music to energize listeners to put their faith into action as well. “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.”

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 we are offering you a FREE DOWNLOAD of Audio Adrenaline’s song “World Changers” off their latest album Sound of the Saints. Enjoy!

Get A Free Download From Phil Wickham’s Brand New Album “Children Of God”

In 2014, Phil Wickham didn’t know whether or not he’d ever be able to sing again.

He’d gone to the doctor, having canceled a string of concerts because his throat was bothering him. He could barely talk. The doctors ran a few tests and discovered a vocal polyp – a small lesion on his vocal cord. They could remove it, but the healing process would take time. Phil wouldn’t be able to speak for a month, and after that, there were no guarantees his voice would ever be the same. He might not even be able to sing professionally anymore.

“I was upset,” Phil says. “I was afraid for the future. It felt like my identity was being stripped away.”

All of this had come a few months into the process of writing his seventh album, but it was a struggle. “It’d become this mundane thing – more a job than a passion,” Phil says. “I didn’t know what to write. I’d sit down to write a song, and I’d think ‘What do I say?’ I could say the same stuff I’d already said on old albums over again, but I didn’t want to do that. I needed a personal awakening.”

Then came the vocal polyp, the doctors, and the month of silence. Very suddenly, Phil’s whole future was thrown into question. “I remember a few days after the diagnosis, I was on my knees asking God for some peace and clarity and a sense of Him in it all. All of the sudden I had this strong sense of Gods presence there with me. There have only been a few times in my life where I felt, undeniably, His voice speaking to me. This was one of them. I felt, undeniably, His voice speaking to me. He said my identity is not in what I do, but it’s in who He says I am. He said ‘I’m your father. You’re my child. Trust me.’”

That sensation of being near to God stayed with Phil. He still had damaged vocal cords and an uncertain future, but one thing he didn’t have anymore was the fear.

“I’ve been singing songs about being a child of God since I was three years old,” Phil says. “I know that phrase. But it went from a Sunday School idea to this massive, freeing truth. Maybe because I’m a dad now. I equated my love for my kids to the God who is love – who created love. He loves me like a father. I found so much freedom and hope and peace in this fresh realization of my standing with Him as a child.”

Given a new sense of passion and freedom, Phil sat down to do what had proven so difficult just a few months earlier. He sat down to write some songs.

“I started writing songs out of this reawakening in my heart,” he says. “I still didn’t know if I was going to be able to sing a whole record of them. But I had a freedom and a lightness in my heart. That’s why I called the record Children of God. The way I feel about the record, that excitement and freshness, I feel like it’s my first record all over again. I feel refreshed. I have a new sound and a new heart. I can’t wait to get on the road and play these songs.”

This week we are celebrating Phil’s album release by offering you a FREE SONG DOWNLOAD of the title track “Children Of God.” If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy of the record available everywhere now. We’re loving Phil’s brand new album and we’re sure you will too!

Get A Free Download From JJ Weeks Band’s New Album!

A lifetime is a long time to do anything. Yet, the four members of the JJ Weeks Band are certain they’ll spend forever praising God with their lives and their music. On their seventh full-length project—and first for Centricity Music—the JJ Weeks Band musically commits to telling the world about Jesus for as long as they can breathe.

Comprised of lead singer/songwriter JJ Weeks, bassist David Hart, drummer Jon Poole and guitarist Cody Preston, the Macon, Ga., based band may be new to the Centricity roster, but they are far from a new act. The group originated when Weeks—then a worship leader at his hometown church—needed a band for a local worship night. Hitting the road, the group began amassing a loyal fanbase throughout the southeast. To date, they’ve opened for everyone from MercyMe and Casting Crowns to labelmates Unspoken. In addition, their music has been featured on the official soundtracks for high-profile films God’s Not Dead and Four Blood Moons.

For Weeks and his bandmates, the stories they hear from fans are the crowning achievement of their vocation. “Making a difference in people’s lives—that’s really why we do this, we want to be a vessel,” the frontman asserts. “We can sing for two hours, and it will not change anything, but God can move in a moment and change everything. That’s just how big our God is,” Weeks maintains. “Our central message is ‘Come to Jesus,’ because He loves us more than we can ever understand.”

It’s this core idea that floods As Long As We Can Breathe, a brand new collection of songs that remind listeners of God’s peace and presence through a thoughtful mix of lush balladry and groove-inducing hooks. Throughout 10 fresh tracks, the JJ Weeks Band reiterates their complete commitment to Christ. “I feel like a lot of times, as Christians—counting myself—we cower down and back away from just being who we are instead of saying, ‘This is who I am. This is who God’s created me to be,’” Weeks muses. “We’re going to sing; we’re going to worship; we’re going to be what God wants us to be ’til the day we don’t breathe anymore.”

For the JJ Weeks Band, the songs on As Long As We Breathe have set fresh wind to their sails, refreshing the four men in ways they didn’t even know they needed to be refueled. “After 12 years of being a band, we feel like it’s a brand new rebirthing of the JJ Weeks Band, and we couldn’t be more excited,” Weeks shares. “It’s the best album we’ve ever crafted, and we’re just thankful that God let us be a part of it.”

This week we are so excited to celebrate the release of JJ Weeks Band’s new album by offering you a FREE DOWNLOAD of their song “In The Name Of” off the album. If you like what you hear then be sure to pick up your copy available everywhere now! Enjoy!

Free Download From Citizen Way’s New Album 2.0 + Enter To Win An Autographed Copy!

What’s the 2.0 version of Citizen Way? That’s the question lead singer and songwriter Ben Calhoun found himself fielding after the band’s debut album Love is the Evidence gained them a devoted following and produced radio hits like “How Sweet The Sound” and “Should’ve Been Me.”

Calhoun heard the question so often, he decided to name the group’s highly-anticipated sophomore album just that, 2.0.

“Everyone kept asking, ‘What’s the next record going to be? What’s the 2.0 version? What does it sound like?’ That kind of stuck.” Calhoun says. “This is what it sounds like. This is who we are. This is the new and improved Citizen Way.”

The result is an 11-track record sporting pop-rock influences, infectious lyrics and a creatively ambitious new sound from the trio, composed of Ben and Josh Calhoun and David Blascoe. 2.0 sees the band pushing their artistic boundaries with songs like the funk-inspired “Bulletproof” and the soulful, stripped down ballad “I Will.” It also carries with it a decided level of maturity and vulnerability.

“I wanted to reach that little part in my heart and my soul that I haven’t reached yet, and I wanted to talk about it because it’s there to be explored.”

When Calhoun was just eight years old, the singer remembers seeing the Christian rock group Geoff Moore and the Distance live for the first time and feeling a seed being planted. He hopes Citizen Way can give that experience to the next generation.

“Knowing when we’re on stage and when we’re sharing the Gospel, we do the same thing and the Holy Spirit just waters those seeds and lets them grow just like he did for me, that’s everything,” the singer says.

The group prays their latest offering can meet people where they are, offering encouragement, uplifting their spirit and reminding them of the power of God’s promise.

“My goal is always to put a hook around God’s word and let people sing it,” Calhoun says. “I want people to fall in love with Jesus. If they come singing ‘Bulletproof’ or ‘I Will,’ then great. I just want them to know that the word of Jesus is something worth following and I’m going to spend my life and my energy on it because I believe in it that much.”

This week we are celebrating the release of Citizen Way’s new album 2.0 with a FREE DOWNLOAD of their song “On My Side.” Not only are we offering a free download but we are also giving a couple of lucky readers a chance to WIN AN AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF 2.0.

Free Download From The Great Awakening!

Zach Janicello and Cole Johnson originally formed the duo that is Great Awakening in 2008 as an outlet for worship music, with the venture eventually stretching the pair to step outside the boundaries of mainstream Christian music. Realizing that often there is a gap between creativity and songs of faith that resonate with believers, Great Awakening has set out to fill just that. Great Awakening is on a journey to create art about God, life, pain and faith.

“We’re writing songs that aren’t explicitly based around the church experience so many of us are familiar with, we want music that is congruent with our worldview and our faith, but doesn’t require us to give up risk, creativity, and beauty.”

The band recently released Figure It Out a 4 Song EP. Zach and Cole collaborated remotely over the internet to create all 4 tracks, before bringing them into the studio. Figure It Out is characterized by the mixture of a modern analog synth pop sound and organic alternative instrumentation and this week we are offering you a FREE DOWNLOAD of their new single “Deathbed” off their brand new EP Figure It Out.

Chandler Roberts The Color EP Is Available Now; Enjoy A Free Song Download From The Album On Us!

If you’ve been around FreeCCM for a while, you may remember Chandler Roberts and her first EP, Art From The Ashes which released in 2012. Well Chandler is now back with a second EP titled The Color EP which is available TODAY! Produced by Seth Penn, The Color EP is a worshipful collection of songs with a fresh, pop sound. Chandler’s rich, warm timbre is engaging from start to finish. No two of the five songs sound alike, yet they all fit together cohesively. Her passion for leading people to Christ in worship is evident in the lyrical content of the EP.

The project opens with “Lionheart,” (co-written with Ivory Layne) a bold response to the years of fear and self-doubt. It is a reminder that in Christ, we have a boldness like the heart of a lion. I will sail against the waves. I will rise up and be brave. Like a thunder in a storm, I won’t be afraid to roar. Got a lionheart.

The title track “Color,” which she wrote with her producer, Seth Penn, carries with it the overarching theme of the record. “God’s love and power is so much richer, fuller, and more colorful than I will ever understand,” Chandler explains. “I have grown so much in the four years since my first EP, and the depth of God’s character is something that is more clear to me than ever. He IS color.”

The most lighthearted and worshipful is “Rising Setting” (co-written with Shaylee Simeone) which boldly proclaims that God is sufficient in every season of life. “Fight Your Fear” unashamedly asks the question of every listener, “What are you afraid of?” And the record closes with “Victory Song” which explores weighty themes taken straight from Revelation.

Responding to God’s calling can be simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying. That truth is something that Chandler Roberts has experienced in the making of her sophomore music project, The Color EP; moreover, it is a truth that brought meaning and substance to the music. “I hope The Color EP draws people closer to God and further away from their own fears,” Chandler says. “God’s love is too transformative and too vibrant to live in fear.”

This week we are so excited to celebrate Chandler’s big release week by offering you a FREE DOWNLOAD of her song “Rising Setting” off The Color EP. If you like what you hear then be sure to head over to iTunes to download your copy of the EP now!

Free Download From Laura Story

It’s one thing to write compelling, heart-stirring, emotionally rich songs of worship, praise and honor to Christ. People have been doing it for centuries, forming the backbone of faith traditions the world over. It’s another thing entirely to bare your soul, share your vulnerabilities and risk criticism and career success by challenging the mold and daring to say that God is not necessarily a God of happy endings. Instead, He is the God of every story. This is what Laura Story is learning day by day.

“The truth is, I don’t necessarily understand the story God is writing in my life,” she says with her characteristic matter-of-factness. “But that doesn’t mean that God is any less faithful. For better or worse, this is definitely the ministry God has called us to. I know it wasn’t a coincidence. Seven years ago I was offered a record deal and Martin [my husband] was diagnosed with a brain tumor within 48 hours. I thought we would be doing ministry with a nice tidy bow on it. We haven’t gotten a nice, tidy bow. But that’s part of what makes it so real – I mean who really ever gets the nice tidy bow anyway?” The personal struggle and joy Laura has walked in this season is what poignantly inspired God Of Every Story.

What does a real relationship between real-world people and a real-world God look like?

This is what Hawk Nelson explores in their seventh studio album: Diamonds.

“Diamonds talks about how God can use pressure, struggle, trials and stress in our life and make it into something stronger and more beautiful,” lead singer Jon Steingard said. “Just in the same way that diamonds are made. It’s a big comfort to me when I’m in those times to remember that hardships have a purpose and aren’t without meaning. A diamond is strong. It reflects light. It doesn’t have any light of its own, but it reflects the light that it receives.”

This week we are excited to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of their song “Only You,” a worshipful moment at the end of their album Diamonds, that points back to God and gives Him all the credit. Enjoy!
