      Third Day

      During nearly two decades in the spotlight, the members of Third Day have seen the power of music to impact lives many times over—and they testify to that power on their 12th album, Miracle. Faith, passion and rock ‘n roll swagger coalesce into a simmering brew of potent rock anthems infused with the life-affirming lyrics that have always been the bedrock of the band’s music.



      What does over 25 years of touring and recording look like? Besides four Grammy® nominations, countless Dove awards, and a pile of other industry accolades? It looks like Newsboys, still putting on one of the most entertaining live shows and releasing music that continues to push the boundaries with their latest album, Restart. Reinvigorated with new lead singer Michael Tait (dc Talk), Newsboys continues to lead Christian rock into a new decade.


      Jeremy Camp

      Jeremy Camp’s music was born out of a heart that’s been broken and a faith that's been tested. Yet, despite all this he has walked through—or maybe because of it—he’s compelled to praise the God who has proven Himself faithful through it all. With a mix of heavy guitar, hook-laden chorus, and spiritually proving lyrics, Jeremy Camp grows more and more impressive with each release, garnering almost 20 Dove Award nominations and three wins over almost a decade of recording.


      Kari Jobe

      Kari Jobe quickly became established as one of the industry’s premier worship leaders with her Dove Award-winning, self-titled debut. Then her highly anticipated follow-up album, Where I Find You, earned her first Grammy® nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. But through all the accolades, her heart and music remains focused on enjoying the beauty of God’s presence, praising him with your whole heart and letting your light shine in a world that needs to experience the true grace and hope found only in Jesus.

      Family Force 5

      Soulfire Revolution

      Soulfire Revolution was born by family and friends out of a mutual love of music that points people toward the one true Hope. Their debut album, Revival, was recorded in English, Spanish and Portuguese—and is only the beginning of what will continue to be a busy season for Soulfire Revolution as they look forward to partnering with other artists in sharing a message across many languages of the salvation and hope that comes in a thriving relationship with Jesus.


      Rend Collective

      From the bewildering array of children’s toys and whimsical, handmade oddities they call instruments, to the wonderfully impractical scheme of recording a live album on the beach around a campfire, this fascinating worship community have always pursued the colorful and unexpected. Their rootsy, indie-folk style matched with their profound, yet simple message of “worship and community re-imagined” resonates with a generation seeking a fresh expression of faith and belonging.


      About A Mile

      Sometimes the most accomplished artistry is birthed out of the most trying adversity, which coupled with the chemistry that comes from the bond of brotherhood, puts Word Records newcomers About A Mile well beyond their years. With its unwavering commitment to faith no matter how severe the trial, it’s no surprise the group named itself About A Mile, boldly referencing the suffering then triumph of a crucified and risen Christ.

      On the lead single from their ninth studio album, Fading West, Grammy® award-winning alt-rock band Switchfoot looks back to a time when they’d just begun to push toward their dreams of bringing their music to the world. From choir-like backing vocals from the band members’ children to their hallmark blend of edgy atmospherics and bright, breezy melodies, Fading West embodies both a sweetly youthful spirit and the hard-won, highly impassioned joy that comes from triumphing through 17 years as a band.



      With 11 million albums sold and five Grammy® awards with his name on them, tobyMac isn’t interested in one second for resting—he wants to start a revolution. He sees the power of music to eradicate racial lines and draw people together. But it's not his impressive sales heights or countless awards that drive his unique mash-up of hip-hop, rock, reggae, and pop. It's an unwavering quest to make songs that connect and inspire all who hear them—and to rock the house every time he takes the stage.



      As popular culture increasingly waves the banner of hedonism, the odds of a rapper who speaks of monogamy, contentment, and faith making his mark in mainstream hip-hop seem slim. Yet, with several notable media appearances, chart-topping albums, along with a critically acclaimed mixtape and Grammy® award to his credit, Lecrae has found himself on that narrow road while remaining true to his background and his worldview.



      Essential Records’ two-time Grammy-nominated hard rock outfit RED packs a potent sonic punch on its third project, Until We Have Faces, a record that leaps out of the speakers with a ferocity and complexity reflecting the band’s growth and intensity. Since the emergence of the band’s debut, RED has delivered two Top Ten Active Rock, three Top Ten Mainstream Rock singles and nine consecutive No. 1 hits on Christian radio while touring almost non-stop.


      Family Force Five

      Mix a handful of thunderous beats and a dash of dirty South swagger in a bucket filled with Southern-fried, greasy guitar. Then roast the ingredients all day in the sweltering Georgia heat, pepper with good-time lyrics, and enjoy the spicy southern rock jambalaya of Family Force 5. Since 2005, the genre-obliterating Atlanta quintet has been setting audiences’ feet alight with their incendiary dance-rock anthems, refusing to let fans keep their kicks still.


      Andy Mineo

      Whether he’s on stage bringing an audience to its feet with his riveting performance or off stage fielding interview questions with a potent combination of intellect and wit, it’s obvious Andy Mineo is a born communicator and hip hop music is his instrument for reaching the masses. Now with two major label releases under his belt, a new inner-city church plant up and running, he’s ready to tackle whatever else God has in store for him.



      With his second full album, Identity Crisis, Tedashii shared his past identity struggles, the fountain of his new identity, and challenged listeners to find theirs in Christ alone. His sophomore release charted No. 2 on the Gospel Billboard chart and No. 9 on the Christian Billboard chart, solidifying the appeal of a unique artist who is unashamedly Christian and soulfully hip-hop.


      Love And The Outcome

      The husband-wife duo Love & The Outcome have packed their debut album with songs that speak to the faith journey they've braved since selling their condo in 2010 and taking to the road in pursuit of their musical vision. So, what happens when your craziest dreams come true, you get signed, and are invited to share your music on a larger platform in a new country? That's easy: Dream some more. Pass it on. And put the spotlight where it belongs—on Jesus.
