{"key":"1029","name":"Skillet","bio":"Skillet is an American rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee, consisting of all Christian members.Skillet formed in 1996 with two members: John Cooper, former vocalist for Tennessee progressive rock band Seraph, and Ken Steorts, former guitarist for Urgent Cry. The two bands met through touring together, but those bands disbanded soon after, so John and Ken's pastor encouraged them to form their own band as a side-project. Coming from different styles of rock music, they decided to name the experiment Skillet. After Trey McClurkin joined the band as a permanent drummer. Skillet was only together for a month when they received interest from major Christian record label ForeFront Records. In 1996 they released a self-titled debut Skillet. It was well-received, and the trio continued to write new material as they toured the United States. One topic that comes up often among fans and the band itself, is the name 'Skillet'. John Cooper, the lead vocalist, explains that it was a joke at first. Each starting band member was already in a separate band, and all decided to start a side project. Since each other band had a different sound and style to it, the side project was said to be like putting all of those styles in a big skillet to come up with something unique. Hence the band name 'Skillet'. The band name is still somewhat of a joke between the band members, especially Cooper, who claims to still not like the title.Skillet recorded their follow-up album throughout 1997, titled Hey You, I Love Your Soul, which was released in April 1998. Their second effort was a change in style from the band's first release. With this release, Skillet would abandon their post-grunge approach for a lighter alternative rock and a style. His wife Korey was enlisted soon after to play keyboards live in order to alleviate John's live performance duties.Invincible, Ardent Worship, and Alien Youth (2000\u201302)Shortly before the band began recording for their third album, Invincible, Steorts left the band to be with his family, and Kevin Haaland joined the band as their new guitarist. Korey Cooper joined the band permanently and played keyboards for the recording of Invincible. Because of this change, the musical style on Invincible changed to a more electronic sound. Soon after the release of Invincible in early 2000, Trey McClurkin parted ways with Skillet, and Lori Peters filled the drummer's position. Invincible would be Skillet's best selling record to date.The band released their first worship album, and fourth album overall, Ardent Worship in Fall 2000. The band kept much of their sound from Invincible on their next album Alien Youth. With little time between touring and recording, Skillet released Alien Youth on August 28, 2001, which was the first album that John Cooper took on production duties. Before the release of Alien Youth, Haaland left the band, and Ben Kasica took over on guitar. The first single, the title track, was a major hit in the Christian market and drove Skillet into their first headlining shows.Collide (2003\u201305)In 2003, Collide was released by Ardent Records. It caught the attention of Andy Karp, the Head of A&R of Lava Records, and in 2004 the rights to Collide were bought by Lava Records, a division of Atlantic Records. On May 25, 2004, Collide was re-released under Lava Records, with an added track, \"Open Wounds\". Collide was yet another musical shift for the band. Citing Linkin Park and P.O.D. as inspiration for the musical shift on Collide, Cooper said, \"Well I\u2019m one of these song writers, everything I hear goes through my John Cooper filter of what I like and what I don\u2019t like. All these things have been an influence on me.'Comatose (2006\u201308)Skillet's album Comatose was released on October 3, 2006. It features the singles \"Rebirthing,\" \"Whispers in the Dark,\" \"Comatose,\" \"The Older I Get,\" \"Those Nights,\" and \"The Last Night\". The album debuted at #55 on the Billboard 200 and #4 on the US Top Christian Albums chart.In January 2008, Skillet announced that their drummer, Lori Peters, was retiring from the band, feeling that \"it's time for her to come off of the road and start a new chapter in her life.\" Peters' last concert with Skillet was on December 31, 2007. However, during the 2007 Christmas season, she took the time to train Skillet's next drummer, Jen Ledger.On October 21, 2008, Comatose Comes Alive was released; a CD\/DVD combo featuring live recordings of the band's May 9, 2008 concert in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was shown on the Gospel Music Channel on December 5, 2008.

They added two songs (\"Hero\" and \"Monster\") from the new record to their setlist on April 2, 2009 in Evansville, Indiana as part of their Comatose Tour 2009.Skillet's most recent studio album is Awake. The album contains twelve songs and was released on August 25, 2009. It charted at #2 on the Billboard top 200 selling around 68,000 units in its first week. \"Monster\" was released as a single on July 14, 2009. Contrary to popular belief, John Cooper stated that \"Hero\" was not the album's lead single. It was, however, released as a single in March 2010.They also released a deluxe version with the extra songs \"Dead Inside\" and \"Would It Matter\", along with the original, radio edit of \"Monster\" that does not have the distorted growl as in the single and in the CD. The song \"Hero\" was used in the publicizing of the first football game of the 2009 NFL season between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans, and the song \"Monster\" was used in the episode \"Jason: The Pretty-Boy Bully\" on MTV's Bully Beatdown. \"Monster\" was the theme song for the WWE event WWE Hell in a Cell while the song \"Hero\" was the theme song for WWE Tribute to the Troops and Royal Rumble 2010, as well as both songs being included on the official soundtrack for the WWE video game WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010.

He states: \"We have aggressive tracks, artsy and musical tracks, which is new territory for Skillet. A couple songs are classic American heartland anthems, and a couple songs are signature symphonic-classical rock Skillet. Guitars are dirty and edgier, with absolute shredding solos by Seth.\" One of the songs mentioned in the interview was titled \"Salvation\".In an Interview on January 26, 2013 In Beaumont TX, John Cooper announced that the new album, Rise, would be coming out in May 2013, but was later scheduled for a June 25, 2013 release.

{"key":"2883","name":"Underoath","bio":"Underoath (occasionally typeset as underOATH or UNDER\u00d8ATH) is an American metalcore band originally formed on November 30, 1997 in Ocala, Florida, but later relocated to Tampa, Florida, which was home to some of their newer members. \t\t\tDuring the band's early years, when they were fronted by former vocalist Dallas Taylor, Underoath displayed a heavier style than their later, more well-known work, incorporating disparate influences from death and black metal. With Taylor, they released Act of Depression, Cries of the Past, and The Changing of Times. Following Taylor's departure, Spencer Chamberlain became lead vocalist. The band then released They're Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line, gaining a certified gold rating and the highest-charting Christian album on The Billboard 200 since 1997, respectively. These two albums have given them more mainstream and commercial success. They're Only Chasing Safety marked an extreme departure from their earlier work, with extensive use of clean vocals and poppy rhythms, and a near-complete eradication of breakdowns and the use of double-bass. Define The Great Line reflected another shift in style, once again incorporating heavier styles into Underoath's sound. While the album still featured extensive clean vocals, its use of heavier vocals, detuned guitars, and Botch-inspired guitar work paved the way for Underoath's future.\t Underoath released a live album called Survive, Kaleidoscope on May 27, 2008. Earlier that year, the band recorded a new studio album called Lost in the Sound of Separation, which was released on September 2, 2008, peaking at number 8 on the Billboard 200. In April 2010, Aaron Gillespie announced his resignation from the band, stating that there are no hard feelings and that he will continue to pursue his other band, The Almost, leaving Underoath with none of its founding members.The band recorded their seventh album with new drummer Daniel Davison, formerly of Norma Jean. The album, \u00d8 (Disambiguation), was released on November 9, 2010.In October 2012, Underoath announced that they would be disbanding the following year, in addition to a career-spanning compilation album, Anthology: 1999\u20132013, which was released on November 6, 2012. The band then embarked on a nine-date farewell tour, which wrapped up at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida on January 26, 2013.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/\/images\/2883_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

It's almost become very formulaic, and metal to me was never a formulaic genre.\"August Burns Red was founded in March 2003 when all the members were attending high school.

Neil Sanderson (drums), also played in Groundswell (the first version of Three Days Grace). Bands spend a lot of time together and even worked at McDonald's.The second album, (that was first under the name Thousand Foot Krutch) That's What People Do was released independently in 1998 and is out of print. It sold over 5000 copies. TFK climbed the ladder of local notoriety throughout Ontario and abroad. Reaching the ears of Ontario commercial radio, CKWF 101.5 FM in their home town of Peterborough took a chance and added \"Rhyme Animal\", the band's first single from their independent recording, to their rotation. It clicked with listeners and within two months ended up being one of the five most requested songs of the year. In 1999 TFK was chosen by 7 Ball Magazine as one of the top 25 indie bands in North America. They were also awarded \"Best Indie Recording\" and Trevor awarded \"Vocalist of the Year\" by the readers of The Wire Magazine. They were then awarded \"Band of the Year\" at the 2000 Wire Awards. They were also voted as the #1 band of the millennium on 100.3 FM in Barrie, Ontario.The next album, Set It Off, was released at November 14th 2000. It was debut label release. The sound of the album was distinct in its heavily hip-hop influenced nu metal, and though a few songs from the record (including \"Puppet\" and \"Supafly\") impacted at both Secular and Christian radio, the band gained notoriety almost entirely through self-promotion and word of mouth. The band also printed a limited edition \"Pre-release\" version of \"Set It Off\" at a release party in Peterborough, Ontario for their local fans. TFK toured with Finger Eleven, Econoline Crush, Treble Charger, The Tea Party, Matthew Good Band, Gob, Zuckerbaby, Clarknova, superGARAGE and others. Three Days Grace, which was a cover band at that time, was a TFK's opening band. Trevor helped with recordings of Three Days Grace's demo album. He is also featured on their song \"This Movie\" from this album.In 2003, TFK signed with Seattle-based Tooth & Nail Records after long consideration and released their critically-acclaimed second full-length CD, Phenomenon. Though something of a departure from the rap-heavy sound of Set it Off, Phenomenon still relied on McNevan's rhythmic vocals, albeit with a solid modern metal sound. Phenomenon was well received, and spawned 4 popular radio singles, including the anthemic \"Rawkfist.\" The CD sold 200,000 units making it one of the best-selling albums in Tooth & Nail's history. They continued this success with the 2004 re-release of Set it Off through Tooth & Nail, allowing for a larger print run and adding 6 songs, including five from \"That's What People Do\", and one new song \"Everyone Like Me\", produced by Gavin Brown (Three Days Grace\/Billy Talent\/Thornley). In that time McNevan and Augustine started a side band called FM Static, which can be classified as a pop-punk or pop\/rock band and is usually much more light-hearted. FM Static scoring two #10 hits for their songs \"Crazy Mary\", and \"Something to Believe in.\"On July 19, 2005, they released their third full-length album The Art of Breaking, produced by Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace\/Finger Eleven\/Simple Plan). This album makes almost a complete break from the nu metal sound of their earlier albums, focusing more on hardcore elements. The single \"Move\" peaked at #16 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart early 2006. The band was on many tours, festivals and concerts, including concerts with Korn, Paramore, Relient K, AFI, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hawthorne Heights, Dashboard Confessional, Neverending White Lights, Kill Hannah, Trapt, Thornley and others.After working in the studio with producer Ken Andrews (Beck\/Chris Cornell\/Pete Yorn\/Tenacious D\/Mae) they released The Flame in All of Us on September 18th, 2007. This album could be considered a slight deviation from their previous rapcore inspired sound, with a move to a more mainstream rock sound, with some heavy influences from bands such as fellow Canadian artists Our Lady Peace & other various metal bands. On Thousand Foot Krutch was the favorite artist on the 2nd of July 2007 and 26th August 2007.The next tour was in the spring of 2008 when the band toured with Skillet and Decyfer Down. TFK also perfomed with Egypt Central, P.O.D., Chevelle, Sevendust, 10 Years, Daughtry, Red.TFK's 5th album titled \"Welcome to the Masquerade\" was released in the fall of 2009. Thousand Foot Krutch kicked off their new album \"Welcome to the Masquerade\" for the first time at North Western College St. Paul MN on 9\/11\/09.The End Is Where We Begin is the band\u2019s fifth studio album.

Emery moved to Seattle, Washington in order to reach a more music centered scene. The band resists being labeled a \"Christian band\". Before signing with Tooth & Nail, Emery recorded 2 EP's, The Columbus EEP Thee and The Weak's End demo that they used to attract attention from labels. With Tooth & Nail, they have recorded 4 studio albums, and 2 EPs. The Weak's End, their debut album, was released in 2004, followed by The Question in 2005 and I'm Only A Man in 2007. The latter fulfilled Emery's contract with Tooth & Nail. However, the band re-signed with the label and released In Shallow Seas We Sail on June 2, 2009. The band's most recent album, We Do What We Want, was released on March 29, 2011.Formation and Early Years (2000 \u2013 2001)Emery formed in 2001 in Rock Hill, South Carolina but moved to Seattle, Washington in search of a better musical environment. The band was named after a first grader that Toby Morrell met while working as an intern for a teacher in college. The four members in the band at the time, Toby Morrell (vocals\/guitar), Devin Shelton (drums), Matt Carter (guitar\/keyboards), and Joel \"Chopper\" Green (bass) actually left Rock Hill, South Carolina for Seattle on September 11, the day of the terrorist attacks; they found out about the attacks when they stopped at a local diner in South Carolina. Most of the members are from the bands Sachul, Joe 747, Simply Waynes and Oogie Brown. After a little while Seth Studley, who was one of the original members of the band, broke out of a serious relationship and followed them to Seattle and resumed his post as drummer. Since Seth took over drums, Devin went ahead and took the position of guitarist.The Weak's End (2002 \u2013 2004)After making Emerald City their new home in Seattle, Washington, Emery signed a record deal with Tooth & Nail Records, also of Seattle, in 2002. Wasting no time, Emery paired up with producer\/engineer Ed Rose and worked on their debut album, The Weak's End. It was produced at the Black Lodge Studio in Eudora, Kansas. The record was released in January 2004 by Tooth & Nail Records. Emery toured extensively to promote their new release.The Question (2005 \u2013 2006)While touring, Seth Studley decided to leave the band in order to get married and Emery had to look for a new drummer.

The band took five weeks in recording sessions. The Question was released on August 2, 2005. \"Studying Politics\" was released as the album's first single with a video emerging on June 29, 2005. On November 21, 2006, Emery re-released The Question, adding a DVD, five acoustic versions of previously recorded songs and two new demo tracks, which were produced by Matt Carter. The DVD included a documentary film of Emery, live songs and bonus footage.After the re-release, Joel \"Chopper\" Green decided to leave the band. On September 19, 2006, Emery posted a blog on their website explaining the departure. Devin and Toby since then switched bass parts in concerts and in the studio.I'm Only A Man (2007 \u2013 2008)While touring with Underoath in Australia, Emery announced that they were releasing a new album. The album, I'm Only A Man, leaked onto the internet before its official release on October 2, 2007.

Since Mutemath released its first EP in late 2004 and hit the road in 2005, their musical style has transformed over the years. By the time of their 2006 self-titled debut, their blending of adverse genres earned them a reputation as one of modern music\u2019s most daring young groups. By 2007, they found themselves Grammy nominated and declared by Alternative Press as \u201cthe #1 band you need to see live before you die.\u201d But in the band almost broke up during the making of their sophomore album Armistice. \u201cIt was a risk we had to take,\u201d says King looking back on what they set out to accomplish for Armistice. \u201cThis record was by far the most painful music-making experience I\u2019ve ever had, but also the one I\u2019m most proud of.\u201dThe band is best known for the 2007 single \u201cTypical\u201d, taken from their 2006 self titled album.

They didn\u2019t really love their band name, however, which was a tribute to the original guitarist\u2019s penchant for wearing one particularly loud plaid shirt. Consequently, the name was abbreviated to M.P., but in Yuri\u2019s handwriting, periods become \u201cX\u201c\u2018s and since he made up the show posters for the band, the four-letter moniker stuck.Andy Husted, the former guitarist, left the band in 1995 to continue college.Andy was replaced by Tom to solidify the line-up that would take the band into their post-teen years. Maybe Tom\u2019s background as a drummer made up for his relative inexperience playing guitar (he had only played for a year at the time). He and Yuri lock into backbreakingly fast rhythms that rank with vintage Minor Threat for speed and percussive attack. Mike then adds to the mix his signature sing-along melodies that call to mind SoCal punk bands from the early \u201980s.Bremerton had been a town most famous for its naval shipyards until MxPx caught the attention of Tooth & Nail Records when they played a \u201cshowcase\u201d for the T&N label in 1993 in Herrera\u2019s parents\u2019 garage. Mike Herrera had practiced so much before the first show, he lost his voice.MxPx released three albums with Tooth & Nail Records: Pokinatcha in 1994, Teenage Politics in 1995, and Life in General in 1996. After a falling out with Tooth & Nail, MxPx left the label and signed with A&M Records.In July 2010 drummer Yuri Ruley announced he would be retiring from the band to focus on his family. Ruley played his last show with the band in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 18, 2010. In a recent video message from Mike, he stated that Tom and Yuri have both finished touring full time, but will continue to play one-off shows with the band.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/\/images\/2917_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"20,000 - 50,000"}

It was crazy.\"After that, the band was signed up by Wind-Up Records. The situation improved once 12 Stones signed with Wind-up and began recording with producer Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm), who helped pump up Eric Weaver\u2019s searing guitar solos in the belief that a new guitar hero might be born. Combined with the propulsive rhythm section of Dorr and drummer Aaron Gainer and McCoy\u2019s distinctive lyrics, the 12 Stones sound conveys real emotion with a visceral punch.The band's eponymous debut album was released in 2002, produced by Jay Baumgardner. They gained more fame when vocalist McCoy performed in Evanescence's song \"Bring Me to Life\" opposite Amy Lee. The song was included in both Evanescence's album, Fallen and in the Daredevil film soundtrack. McCoy quotes:\"Our songs are about some of the really tough times I went through growing up as a kid,\" McCoy says. \"I really wanted to target subjects in our songs that kids going through tough times can relate to and help them get through tough times. It doesn't mean you can\u2019t be angry and the songs powerful. We just want to stream negative energy in a positive way.\"In 2004, Kevin Dorr quit the band and touring guitarist Greg Trammell later became an official member.Their second album, Potter's Field came out in 2004. Both albums were supported with heavy touring. Clint Amereno and then Aaron Hill were brought in to play bass for the shows. After the tour, the band decided to take a break from the band to be with their respective families.Trammell left prior to the recording of the next album, leaving the band without a second guitarist. After completion of the CD, one of its collaborators, ex-Breaking Point guitarist Justin Rimer, took over this position. The new lineup was later completed with the addition of former Presence bassist DJ Stange.Their third album, Anthem For The Underdog, was released in 2007. The album is said to be inspired by the effects of Hurricane Katrina on their hometown.Shortly after the album's release, Stange quit and was replaced by Shawn Wade, formerly of the band Silence Is Broken.12 Stones released an EP entitled \"The Only Easy Day was Yesterday in the summer of 2010. Shortly after its release, the band left Wind-up Records. After a lengthy search, they found a new home with EMI. EMG's Jacob Capricciuolo said of the latest expansion move of the company, \"signing 12 Stones marks a pivotal turn for Executive Music Group to not only continue its established rock success, but to now elevate its presence in Rock to a much broader audience. Myself and VP Jimmy Swan believe 12 Stones has been underrated within the music industry for far to long. We live for radical movements and artists ready to make radical changes within those movements such as 12 Stones. The excitement to work with their amazing talent is more than exhilarating to say the least! It's an honor to have on our roster a group of hard working guys stopping at nothing for global success!\"They entered the studio in the spring of 2011 to record their 4th full length LP.

{"key":"2891","name":"Hillsong United","bio":"Hillsong United is an Australian worship band. They started as the youth ministry band from Hillsong Church in Australia. Their music is praise and worship with a contemporary style that is a mix of contemporary Christian music and mainstream rock. The band was formerly named \"United Live\" and was led by Reuben Morgan and Marty Sampson. United Live made its first album in 1999 after a suggestion from worship pastor Darlene Zschech to Reuben Morgan. (This has been mentioned by Reuben in the documentary section of the United We Stand DVD) Following the advice, Reuben and Marty led the team in making their very first album, Everyday. They subsequently recorded 3 more albums with Reuben before changing the band's name from 'United Live' to 'Hillsong United' after Reuben's departure in 2002. Joel Houston, the son of the church's senior pastor, replaced Reuben, and stepped up to lead the group together with Marty. The band has toured in a number of countries, and their 2006 release United We Stand was the best selling album of 2006 in Canada at Christian retail stores.Current members of the Hillsong United band include Joel Houston, Jonathon Douglass (J.D.), Jadwin \"Jad\" Gillies, Matt Crocker, Taya Smith, Dylan Thomas (on rhythm guitar), Timon Klein (on lead guitar), Peter James & Benjamin Tennikoff (on keyboards), Adam Crosariol (on bass guitar), and Simon Kobler (on drums).The annual Hillsong United CD\/DVD is recorded during their October youth conference Encounterfest; the album is released in February the following year. The 2007 Hillsong United album \"All of the Above\" was released on the 17th of March. Unlike all of the previous United albums, this CD was studio recorded.To date in 2008, Hillsong United have released the first part of the I Heart Revolution recordings; 'With Hearts as One', made live around the world during the band's recent tours. The CD features previously released United tracks recorded live in different locations, and the first installment of a live DVD. In 2009, they released 'Across the Earth: Tear down the walls', followed by 'A F T E R M A T H' on February 15th 2011.On February 14, 2012, 'LIVE IN MIAMI (Welcome to the Aftermath)' was released. It contained songs from both the album Aftermath, and several other of their greatest hits, such as \"The Stand,\" \"With Everything,\" and \"Your Name High.\" It was also the first fully recorded Hillsong United tour.In 2013, United continued to their long string of worship albums withcompletely new material entitled Zion. Mixing a new digital sound, and their signature lyrics, they topped charts globally, and Zion became Hillsong United's highest selling album. Some songs include Oceans (Where Feet May Fail), Scandal Of Grace, Relentless, Love Is War, and Nothing Like Your Love. In late 2013, after the massive success of their song Oceans (Where Feet May Fail), United released an entire EP entitled Oceans. Not too long afterwards, United released an acoustic version of the album Zion, and in March 2014, they released their first remix album entitled \"The White Album Project\".","featuredImage":"http:\/\/\/images\/2891_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"75,000 - 150,000"}

{"key":"77080","name":"Elevation Worship","bio":"Elevation exists \"so that people far from God will be filled with life in Christ.\" That's the vision that was planted in the heart of Pastor Steven Furtick at the age of 16.

{"key":"148748","name":"Matty Mullins","bio":"His voice rings loud from car stereo speakers, from headphones, from the Vans Warped Tour\u2019s mainstage. Each phrase deeply connects with a disenfranchised generation who feels cast aside, abandoned and looked down upon. His face graces the covers of magazines like Alternative Press, Big Cheese and HM. Memphis May Fire\u2019s official videos have racked up over 40 million views and their frontman\u2019s collaborations with Sleeping With Sirens, For Today, and Hands Like Houses account for 5 million more. Memphis May Fire\u2019s last album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart. Over 2 million fans follow his band on social media. The temptation to use that influence for self-promotion, for vanity, or for profit, is a great burden to anyone blessed with even an ounce of fame. But MATTY MULLINS is putting his unique gift as a singer, songwriter, youth culture ambassador and relatable public figure to work for a purpose much higher than himself. The powerful frontman whose motivational metalcore commands the crowds at prestigious festivals like Riot Fest (US), Download (UK) and Soundwave (Australia) has crafted a debut solo album harnessing melody, harmony, top-tier pop grooves with a heartfelt, worshipful devotion to his Christian faith. The electrifyingly diverse 11-song record explores a different side of the multitalented singer, as it hearkens even further back than his most cherished heavy music influences like Blindside or Underoath, to the Christian Contemporary rock and pop his mother took him to see as a kid. \u201cI\u2019m super thankful for everything I\u2019ve gotten to do in Memphis May Fire and everything we\u2019ve done as a band,\u201d Mullins explains. \u201cThe musical opportunities for me to share my message came from metalcore and heavier stuff like that. I love playing heavy music; I think I always will. But as long as I\u2019ve been in music, I\u2019ve wanted to make a record like this, too.\u201d Mullins cites familiar Christian Contemporary Music touchstones like Australian pop-rockers The Newsboys; Grammy winners Audio Adrenaline; multiplatinum hit-makers MercyMe; and 40-year-strong hard rockers Petra. These CCM groups shaped his early childhood, setting the stage for when harder edged sounds would enthrall him as a teenager. His solo album \u2013 simply entitled Matty Mullins \u2013 shares a deep fellowship with those roots. \u201cDC Talk is one of the greatest groups of all time,\u201d the singer declares enthusiastically. \u201cI love Tenth Avenue North. I love everything Toby Mac does. And I have so much respect for singers like Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman; musicians who put so much positivity out there.\u201d From a songwriting and production standpoint, Matty Mullins solo work is refreshingly modern, yet effortlessly timeless in its earnest sensibility. Longtime collaborator Cameron Mizell, the producing maestro behind records from Memphis May Fire contemporaries like Sleeping With Sirens, Capture The Crown and The Word Alive, took on the instrumental and programming portion. His music runs the gamut from dance floor worthy beats to something one might hear from singer\/songwriter Phil Wickham. The duo first got together to hash out an EP. But after blazing through a half dozen tracks in as many days in Seattle, they felt so enlivened by the process they decided to write enough for a full-length album. The rest of the record was made in Nashville, where Mullins and his wife now reside. \u201cI took the remainder of the recording budget from the EP and had a studio built in my house,\u201d he explains. \u201cI flew Cameron to Nashville. It was literally just he and I writing and recording together. We put together a really solid record that I\u2019m so proud of and I\u2019m so excited to share with the world.\u201d Mullins was emphatic that their pop songs be free of boundaries. \u201cCameron has so much talent, it\u2019s crazy. People don\u2019t realize how much of the stuff he co-writes when he produces. He\u2019s got a huge passion for pop music. He made songs that would sound like hip-hop tracks if I weren\u2019t singing over them. It\u2019s all over the place, but just really tasteful from start to finish.\u201d Lyrically, the album\u2019s declaration of love and devotion is clear from the first song. \u201cSee You in Everything\u201d is a shot across the bow at the superficial. Instead of demanding supernatural miracles, the song implores the listener to take comfort in what God is already demonstrating everyday. \u201cA thankful heart and someone that shows a lot of gratitude with everything in their life, I think that that is the ultimate cure for depression,\u201d Mullins explains. \u201cWhen I stop seeing things through worldly eyes, and allow myself to see the beauty in Creation, that\u2019s when I really start to see God in everything.\u201d Songs like \u201c99% Soul\u201d follow suit thematically. It\u2019s the singer\u2019s confession that he, like anyone, can get caught up in worldly desires that detract from the soul\u2019s true destination: eternity. It\u2019s one of the most blatantly pop songs on the record, with catchy and easy to remember melodies that put a strong emphasis on the lyrics. \u201cMy Dear\u201d is a reminder that the Christian faith isn\u2019t about rules, or earning the way into heavenly rewards. What Jesus offers is free; one must only reach for Him, trust, and commit to Him.\u201cWhat God really wants isn\u2019t \u2018religion.\u2019 It\u2019s relationship,\u201d Mullins says simply. \u201cThe song is basically saying that all God ever wanted is a relationship. The rest will be up to Him. If we just trust Him, he will make sure we feel loved, like we have purpose. He\u2019s there. He\u2019s enough. But the biggest, boldest decision we have to make as human beings is whether we really want to trust God or not. \u2018My Dear\u2019 is about trusting in God.\u201d As the singer for an increasingly popular screamo\/metalcore band, the smart \u201ccareer move\u201d for Mullins would be to shy away from such bold declarations. But that\u2019s the beauty of where he\u2019s found himself at age 26; with a renewed purpose for himself, with the ability to make a solo record in the first place, and with the drive to lay his faith on the line for his fans. \u201cThe thing I\u2019m most excited about with this record is that it\u2019s a blatant representation of my faith. Nothing makes me feel stronger in my faith than sharing it with other people. The world is so hardened, it\u2019s hard to talk about your faith. But the more you speak encouragement into other people\u2019s lives, the more you tell them how Jesus fills the void in your life, that following Him isn\u2019t a \u2018task,\u2019 it\u2019s transforming and liberating\u2026 This record is blatantly about Jesus and who He is to me and who I know he can be for the world, a world that is hurting and looking for something bigger.\u201d","featuredImage":"http:\/\/\/images\/148748_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

The group's sound has varied over the years as the band has experimented with pop, folk, rock, trip-hop, gospel, and hymnsong. Their self-titled album featured layered acoustic guitars over programmed trip-hop beats. The song \"Flood\" was the band's biggest crossover hit, and it hit #37 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as #12 on the Modern Rock chart.The following albums saw large shifts in style. Much Afraid saw them releasing gorgeous - sometimes brittle - music, which the Band intended to have a \"timeless\" sound, while If I Left the Zoo is a quirkier but musically brilliant album, featuring considerably more keys and experimentation. The Eleventh Hour is their first true \"rock\" album. They returned to acoustic guitars for the \"Furthermore\" project, which featured two EPs - a live disc and an acoustic disc. The band's 5th album, Who We Are Instead continued some of the band's earlier sonic experiments and showcased some new gospel, bluegrass, and hymnsong influences. The hymnsong approach was continued on an album of new arrangements of classic hymns - Redemption Songs.Good Monsters was released on Sept. 05, 2006. The album was hailed by CCM Magazine as \"Album of the Year\" - a controversial move considering that this announcement was made in August. \"Good Monsters\" further showcases the diverse style of the venerable quartet and is considered by the band to be their first true \"rock\" record. It is a rock driven record with electric guitars having prevalence on more of the songs than any previous albums. The album also has other stylistic influences and even includes a choir of African school children, while lyrically, it hits the darker side of their self-shaped genre.In 2007, Jars of Clay announced that they were leaving Essential Records and were creating their own record label, Gray Matters. Jars of Clay released Christmas Songs through Gray Matters in 2007, and the Closer EP was released in the Summer of 2008.April 21, 2009 marked the release of The Long Fall Back to Earth, containing two tracks from the Closer EP and 12 additional tracks.
