NF Pours Out All He Has In Passionate “All I Have” Music Video

NF

Hip-hop/alternative artist Nate Feurerstein, who performs and records as “NF,” is Capitol CMG Label Group’s most recent signing and most compelling new talent. Debuting the music video yesterday for his first single “All I Have,” the song will be available on July 22 at all digital outlets and will be featured on NF’s self-titled EP, releasing August 5th.

On his debut EP, this 23 year-old Gladwin, Michigan native shares his story with lyrical vulnerability complimented by raw energy. His music draws from many real life struggles, including being abused, struggling with anger issues, and losing his mother to a drug overdose.

“God used music to allow me to express my emotions, my pain, my anger, and guilt,” NF shares. “Through all this He has given me a passion for all the kids out there that might be going through some of the things I did. That’s why I rap and write the way I do, that’s why my music is raw and real. I believe music should have real meaning, for real life problems. God has used some of the worst things in my life for good.”

NF’s brand new video for “All I Have” can be seen below.

about a mile

Three brothers hailing from the working class town of Butler, PA, collectively About A Mile, make their anticipated, self-titled debut today from Word Entertainment.  About A Mile, whose name originates from the belief that Jesus carried his cross “about a mile,” may be new on the charts, but brothers Adam, Luke and Levi Klutinoty, have a chemistry and accomplished artistry that is garnering wide critical acclaim as the trio’s music and lyrics speak to members of all faiths about the suffering then triumph of a crucified and risen Christ. See a compelling story of the band on video below.

Produced by GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning producers Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets, All Star United) and Howard Benson (Hoobastank, Daughtry, Third Day), mixed by Neal Avron (Weezer, Linkin Park, Switchfoot) with additional mixing credits from Chris Lord-Alge (Muse, Creed, Daughtry), About A Mile  has been called “musical chemistry perfected.”

About a Mile is one of the most talented bands I have worked with recently,” says Benson.  “I jumped at the chance to work with them. I had the same feeling as when I produced P.O.D., Third Day, Flyleaf and Skillet. They are going to be huge!

Album Review: Seventh Day Slumber – We Are The Broken

Seventh Day Slumber - We Are The Broken Album Cover

Review Date: 07/06/14
Review By: Iain Moss
Release Date: 05/13/14
Rating: 9.5 Stars (9.5 / 10)

 

There are certain bands which immediately come to Christian music fans’ minds whenever “Christian rock” is mentioned, and Seventh Day Slumber is usually one of the first to do so. Seventh Day Slumber, who were formed in 1996, are widely considered to be one of the best hard rock bands out there and are further considered to be one of the figureheads of Christian rock, if not of all Christian music, and deservedly so. Aside from their musical prowess though, they’re also known for the incredible ministry side of Seventh Day Slumber and their insanely powerful testimonies and talks. Lead singer Joseph Rojas’ testimony is one of the most moving, inspirational, and intense testimonies anyone could ever come across, and if you combine that with seriously great songwriting and musicianship you not only have a great band, but you have a phenomenal ministry.

In the lead up to their new album We Are The Broken, frontman and Seventh Day Slumber founder Joseph Rojas shared a little bit about the meaning behind the album and album title, “We want people to know that no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve been through, you are not a lost cause. You are not hopeless, and you are not unloved! That encapsulates the meaning of the title, We Are The Broken.” Right, without further ado, let’s take a closer in-depth look at Seventh Day Slumber’s 10th recording We Are the Broken…

Through Maddy’s Eyes: Refusing To Let Fear Get In The Way

image

It seems that there’s a danger for us humans:

We can easily let either pride or insecurity take control of the gifts God has given to us.

Last week I went to Camp Electric, a Camp where the best of the best in Christian music come to teach some of the most talented kids in the country. I was shakin’ in my boots when I had to get up and sing for Mike Grayson of Mikeschair – and when Royal Tailor told me they read my review of their album last year. It was scary because I was being put in the face of possible rejection. Mike could have told me that I was horrible, making my self – confidence fall flat on its face. (When I was ten, Mike told me to learn as many instruments as I could – which I am doing!) Tauren could have told me how they thought my article was poorly written and that he hated it.

But that didn’t happen, of course.

(You can find out what actually did happened in my series of articles about each day of Camp last week.)

The week before I went to Camp, I was having some serious doubts. I mean, I was about to be put in the middle of 900 people who had the same dream as me. Was I gonna be good enough? Was my passion to serve others and to show Jesus through my music going to be deep enough? What if I got nervous and embarrassed myself in front of the people whose opinion I cared about most? I was letting these insecurities get in my way of the great plan Jesus had for me over that next week.

Then, two days before I had to leave, a close family friend passed away.

TobyMac’s “Worship, Stories & Songs Tour” with Matt Maher Hits the Road This Fall

edfc1422bc4863e38b3481d0_326x440

Five-time GRAMMY®Winner TobyMac has announced the “Worship, Stories & Songs Tour” which will hit the road this fall and will feature Matt Maher and Ryan Stevenson. TobyMac, who is renown for his live performances, will bring together the three artists in a night of fellowship in intimate venues and musical settings across the country.

The “Worship, Stories & Songs Tour” will be a totally different TobyMac show, a time where it’s not about the lights, smoke or big stage. Instead, it will be more intimate and personal, a “storyteller’s night” where Toby will share where the songs came from. 

Hopelessly Devoted: Adversity Is Your Friend!

depositphotos_8357373-Conquering-Adversity

Challenges. Obstacles. Problems. Hurdles. Whatever you call it, we all come face to face with problems. The question is, how do you handle it? Does it cause you to fold and throw in the towel? Or does it simply distract you from the mission set before you by God? Whatever the case, you don’t HAVE to give negative energy to those problems, because suffering is optional! YOU choose the perspective you take hold to and accept as your own, whether you choose God’s or the enemy’s is totally up to you! So is it possible that these problems can be beneficial to you? Yes, it is very possible and it’s exactly the way God wants us to view the situation!

Help Shadow of Whales Hope Forever

10519500_10152311337055000_3725651577770482844_n

The indie-pop quintet Shadow of Whales have been staying busy, releasing another single on July 15th and launching an IndieGoGo campaign for their first tour van. The Austin, TX natives have a self-titled album coming out in August, and their single “Forever” is a great peek at what is to come.

Staying true to their first few singles, the track is vibrant and budding with an infectious energy. The band marvelously blends guitar rhythms, glockenspiel melodies, and peppy synths to pump up their message of hope. No matter the relationship struggle, tell yourself “we won’t always be this way forever, it gets better. I tell ya, even in the worst we stay together.”

In addition to grabbing their singles, another way to support Shadow of Whales is by backing their current campaign to purchase a tour van. Ending August 2nd, perks include a digital download of their EP, an exclusive acoustic song, t-shirts and more! Shadow of Whales has a mission to spread hope to as many people as possible and a van will surely help!
