New Music Releases

A couple weeks ago, Steven McWhirter released the video for "Heavy Load" from The Choir Sessions Album. This album is a kingdom collaboration of culture and creativity, feat. Jason Clayborn and The Atmosphere Changers. In a time where the world and the Bride are more fragmented than ever, we are pressing into the longing of God for His children to be one (John 17:20-21). It’s the marrying of worship and gospel choir music that releases a new sound. 

Some great music on this album like "Come Jesus Come", "Oh Your Blood", and "Stand Up" and the versions really bring a gospel feel to the music.


I don't talk about many gospel groups here, but this group reminds me of the classic sound of the Statler Bros. Redeemed Quartet is a group from Indiana singing country-styled southern gospel. Raised on traditional gospel music and Biblical values, the 4 best friends (who are actually 2 sets of brothers) began their work in the hills of Southern Indiana as teenagers. From their start in 2014, their mission has been to be a light in the darkness and lift the weary traveler, as well as showcase the tight blend of 4-part harmony that has come to define the traditional male quartet. Internet recognition grew in 2015 after posting a simple video of their performance of the classic “Just A Little Talk With Jesus”.

In 2021 they will be releasing an album titled Timeless Classics.  Here is a just released song from the upcoming album, "Thank You Lord, For Your Blessings On Me"...


Ben Rector who gave us "The Thanksgiving Song" in November, now has a new song called "A Song For 2021". 

In his own words:
This verse and chorus hit me late last night out of nowhere. This year has been the strangest year I can imagine, for everybody and for me specifically (having the twins, my job suddenly just grinding to a halt). In the midst of a lot of sadness and loss in the world it has somehow been one of the most formative years of my life, and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I think I imagined that by the time I had kids music would have burned me out, but somehow in being home I’ve really fallen in love with it again and feel deep peace and excitement at the same time. Here’s to putting 2020 behind us and believing that the best is yet to come. 


Finally, Passion continued their tradition of ringing in the new year in a spirit of worship and with some new music. The Passion 2021 Conference was held virtually this year and was free to youth and adults alike. (You can still sign up and re-watch Passion 2021 HERE.) Pasion 2021 also featured the debut live performance of two new songs from Passion Music titled "Breakthrough Miracle Power" and "You Are The Lord." Passion Music shared, "these two songs felt like a stake in the ground for us declaring who God is and that there is hope that He is always working. We couldn't leave Passion 2021 without sharing them with you."
