New Music

Happy Monday, we are starting to see a few new videos now that the holiday season is behind us. First is from the alternative-pop duo Apollo LTD. Bandmates Jordan Phillips and Adam Stark have learned to keep a steady perspective during unstable times. Apollo LTD and Social Club Misfits members come together again, this time as animated characters in the “Good Day” video that premiered last week.


Last week, breakout Contemporary Christian/Country band We The Kingdom ​(​Ed Cash, Scott Cash, Franni Rae Cash, Martin Cash and Andrew Bergthold) released the video for "Take Me On A Ride."


Next we have a new release by singer/songwriter JJ Heller.  Heller began releasing monthly singles in April 2017 that together have amassed over 55 million combined streams to date (through August 2020). The songstress will continue to announce a brand-new song on the first Friday of each month. Last Friday's new song is titled "I Believe In You".

Finally,  Christian singer-songwriter Simon Khorolskiy has released a new Country single based on Isaiah 6:1-8, the Scriptures that conclude with Isaiah's famous call: "Here am I, send me."    

Simon comes from a Russian Christian family that immigrated to the U.S. when he was two years old. His music ministry began in 2016, primarily serving the Russian-speaking community in America, but soon included enthusiastic fans from diverse nations around the globe who often say that although they don’t understand Russian, they still enjoy--and are inspired to worship God through--his music. English subtitles and translations are provided on YouTube.

His new single launched a couple weeks ago, "Holy Is the Lord" is Simon's original composition using lyrics straight from the King James Bible, yet surpassingly modern. You will soon be singing along, quoting this extraordinary passage. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this song, but it is oddly appealing and I find myself listening to it repeatedly.
