I first heard today’s guest when I played his 1986 album Shine On Me at a radio station in Boise, Idaho. As the Christian Music Archive has grown, so has the number of Steve Amerson’s albums. To date, the archive shows 18 records, and I’ve just learned about a couple more! Steve has also lent his voice to several blockbuster movies and regularly participates in a worship service at the US Capitol. And now he is releasing a new book called Tales of a Troubadour which chronicles his more than 30-year career as a recording artist.

For the first time in the history of this podcast, my guest today is not a musician listed on the pages of the Christian Music Archive. I know that you’ve come to expect great interviews with the musicians you love, but I promise, this episode is still worth listening to. Today, I’m interviewing Marshall Terrill, the author of the brand new book The Jesus Music, a companion to the movie of the same name. Marshall has done a great job chronicling the rise of contemporary music out of the Jesus movement into the industry juggernaut it is today. As a fan of Christian music, you want to read this book.

If you are a fan of the band Whitecross, my guest today needs no introduction. Michael Feighan's high-profile career began when he joined the metal band Whitecross. He was eventually ranked as one of the top 10 drummers in Christian music, which resulted in him playing drums for a lot of different artists. But now, he is stepping out from behind the drum kit and stepping up to the microphone with a solo project called Someone Prayed. Michael Feighan: Website, Facebook, and Instagram.

One of the things that stood out to me when I first discovered Glenn Kaiser was that he put his money where his mouth was. The Resurrection Band not only sang about real-life struggles, like poverty, divorce, and racism, but they lived their lives by putting their thoughts into action. Glenn and his wife Wendi started Jesus People USA in Chicago to take God’s love to the streets in a real and practical way. And something about that rang true with me. Plus, Rez really rocked, turning early Christian music on its ear. Today I’m chatting with Glenn Kaiser, and we’re going to learn a little more about living a life that matches what you say you believe.  Glenn Kaiser: Website, Music, Facebook, and Twitter.

I’m honored to be joined by Caroline Cobb on the podcast today. Caroline has a new album out this month called A King & His Kindness, which I’m sure we’ll talk about today. But something else that intrigues me is a challenge she took in 2011 to write a song for every book in the Bible. That’s 66 songs. Let’s find out more about that challenge and learn a little more about the new album. Caroline Cobb: Website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. And of course, on our page: Christian Music Archive.

CeCe Winans is one of the busiest women in Gospel Music. She has been making music for almost 50 years, first singing at her church, then as part of the groundbreaking duo BeBe and CeCe Winans with her brother. She has gone on to a fantastic solo career, releasing more than 15 solo projects, and is the best-selling female gospel artist of all time. CeCe comes from a music family. There’s Mom & Pop Winans. Her brothers formed The Winans. Her nieces and nephews have formed groups. I mean, music is in CeCe’s DNA! With that kind of heritage, you might expect a diva of sorts. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. CeCe is one of the sweetest, most humble people you’ll ever meet, and her love of Jesus sparkles through even more than her sweet smile and bubbly personality.

Brian and Christa Yak met in college as members of the same jazz group. After spending time together on a tour or two, they discovered that they had similar “father stories.” And as they learned more about their earthly fathers, they realized that their heavenly father would fill some empty shoes left behind by their dads. And now that they are married and starting a family of their own, the fatherhood of God takes on a new meaning. So, it’s a real honor for me to introduce you to Brian and Christa from the band For the Fatherless. For the Fatherless: Website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

It was the 1990s, and I was promoting concerts in Oregon and Washington. I did a short three-leg tour with Audio Adrenaline and got introduced to guitarist Barry Blair and the rest of the band. But after that tour, Barry up and disappeared! So whatever happened to Barry Blair? Well, today you are about to find out because all the way from Wilmore, Kentucky, I’m chatting with the original guitarist for Audio Adrenaline, Barry Blair.

Today’s episode is a treat for me on many levels. One of the early records in my collection as a high school student was Night Watch by Fletch Wiley. As a young trumpet player, I saw this album as a path to my potential future. Maybe I would record an album one day. On another level, as I expanded my awareness of music, I began to see Fletch’s name on other projects by Candle, Pam Mark Hall, and Marty McCall & Fireworks. Oh yea, and you can’t forget his work with Andraé Crouch as a bandleader and arranger.

If you are tuning in to today’s podcast because of my guest, I’d be interested in knowing how you know Andrew Greer. Maybe you have been listening to his music. Or maybe you recognize him from the TV show Dinner Conversations with Mark Lowry and Andrew Greer. Or it could be because you read a book or article he has written. And quite possibly, you are a listener to his podcast with Patsy Clairmont called Bridges. So, whatever the reason you are listening, I hope you enjoy our exchange.

Today’s conversation is with Michael O’Brien. Michael was the lead singer of the group NewSong for several years. He also had a successful solo career spanning more than 25 years. But despite the powerful ministry and successful career, Michael had a secret that he kept hidden from his family and friends. And that secret started to ruin his life and was about to destroy his marriage. This is a story that we can all learn from, and I hope you will share this episode with men you know who might be struggling with sexual purity.

Today I’ve connected the longest microphone cable I could find, run it across the ocean to the city of Brighton, England, and I’m chatting with Elle Limebear. Elle is a relatively new artist who released her debut EP a couple of years ago, and she's got a new album, Lost in Wonder, out last year. But for me, the story of how God called her into her music career is pretty amazing. And it all stems from her relationship with God and her experience as a kid with her famous father.

My guest today was a member of Some Band, and no, I’m not trying to be secretive or protect the identity of my guest. But, if you are a fan of early 80’s Christian pop, you’ll recognize that name as the backing group for Steve Taylor. Today, we hear from Dave Thrush about his career as part of Steve Taylor & Some Band. But, more importantly, we'll hear about how his religion changed to a relationship with Christ. Dave will share that his decision to follow Christ did not make everything go smoothly. In fact, he experienced just the opposite.

To start our second year of the podcast, I’m excited to welcome Ginny Owens to the conversation. I first became aware of Ginny in 1999 when she released her debut Rocketown Records album Without Condition. The Gospel Music Association recognized her as the 2000 New Artist of the Year, and she has gone on to win 3 Dove awards. But her music is a tiny part of who she is. She is currently wrapping up a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies and is the author of several books, including her newest, Singing in the Dark, Finding Hope in the Songs of Scripture.

Chris Christian is a substantial name in the Christian Music industry. He helped launch the fledgling Christian music industry, signing artists like Amy Grant, Dogwood, and Whiteheart. He is also responsible for Home Sweet Home Records, one of the early industry leaders in contemporary Christian music. His impact in the industry goes on to songwriting, producing, and so much more. And he credits his entire career to his praying Grandmother.

The Prayer Chain was an alternative rock band in the early 90s, making thought-provoking grunge about the same time that Nirvana was also pioneering this new type of rock. Throughout the 90s, the band released several albums. Still, like so many band stories, they started to struggle with differences of direction, not only with the record label but also between their members. I recently got to talk with Eric Campuzano, bass player for The Prayer Chain, to hear about their story. So please help me welcome to the podcast, Eric Campuzano.

Dallas Holm has been making Christian music for more than 50 years. His first Christian album was in 1969, and for the first 10 years, he used the popular music of the day to share God’s love with drug addicts and gang members. With songs like "Rise Again," "I Saw the Lord," and "Jesus Got a Hold of My Life," Dallas became an integral part of the new and growing Christian Music industry. Now, 35 albums later, Dallas is a passionate advocate for making sure that everything we do is carefully crafted with sound biblical principles.

Steve Bell wears a lot of hats. He's a singer, songwriter, speaker, producer, author, recording artist, husband, and dad. But most importantly, he's a follower of Jesus. With over 20 albums to his credit, and a career spanning more than 30 years, Steve has some amazing stories to share. But what I found most appealing about Steve is his passion to be part of whatever God is doing. I think you'll find his enthusiasm compelling.

When you’ve written more than 300 songs sung in churches around the world, it would appear to many people that you’ve got it all together. But to hear Brian Doerksen talk about it, his songs are a growth out of his very personal and private time with God. So many of these times came through times of grief and hurting. And now, Brian looks at those difficult times as the seeds of Joy that helped spawn songs like "Come, Now is the Time to Worship," "Refiners Fire," and "I Lift My Eyes Up."

John Tibbs released his first album in 2010 and has gone on to release 8 albums. He was touring as an independent artist, got signed to Fair Trade Music and was touring with the Newsboys. He went back to being an independent artist and was as busy as ever. But then in 2020, the world stopped. A global pandemic stopped his ability to tour, which for a musician means a substantial hit to your income. He and his wife were expecting their first child, which added a bit more stress to his life. As you might imagine, John was feeling a bit apprehensive and frustrated.

Bryan Duncan is a Christian music pioneer. As a member of the Sweet Comfort Band, he helped pave the way for contemporary Christian music. After recording six albums with Sweet Comfort, he went on to a successful solo career releasing more than 20 albums. His powerhouse vocals combined with horn-driven rhythm and blues is just about the best music ever recorded. So I’m excited today to sit down with this legend of Christian music.

Garth Hewitt was the first British Christian musician signed to Myrrh records in the UK back in the early 1970s. And for the last fifty years, he has recorded more than 50 records and has toured the world using his music to share about the love of Jesus. Garth was dramatically inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, who used his platform to address social issues and spiritual needs and Garth's music reflects that.

I first learned of Bob Halligan, Jr from reading credits. Early on, I noticed his name as a songwriter and contributor to many of Rick Cua’s albums. If you are a rocker, you have undoubtedly heard Bob’s work as he was the go-to hard rock songwriter of the 80s, penning songs for Judas Priest, Kix, and Michael Bolton. But he also wrote songs for Cher, Kathy Mattea, Joan Jett, and more. Then, I discovered Bob’s band Ceili Rain, an Irish rock band with a penchant for releasing some catchy songs.

Brothers Shawn & Michael Cavallo have been singing and performing together since 1997. In 2004 they reorganized as Manic Drive and released a couple of albums that were recognized by the Canadian Gospel Music Associates with 4 Covenant Awards. Then in 2015 they received a Juno Award for Best Christian Album. Sitting down with these guys was a lot of fun. I really appreciated Shawn & Michael’s intent to make music that will share their faith in places that might not be open to traditional Christian music.

As I’ve been working on this podcast, I’ve found a number of excellent podcasts that I really enjoy. One of those is hosted by Rick Altizer a movie director who has produced movies for Chonda Pierce and Russ Taff. Rick was also a recording artist back in the late 90s. So it was great fun to sit down with Rick and chat about his transition from musician to movie producer, and I think you are really going to enjoy this conversation.

John Schlitt had it all, a successful band, a career that was really going places, and a life that was spiraling out of control. But God had other plans, and through a dramatic interaction with his wife and pastor, John began a journey that took him out of music so that he could focus on his relationship with Jesus. And just when John thought music would never be part of his life again, along came an opportunity to sing with a little band called Petra. And for the next 30 years, God used John to help spread the gospel around the world as one of the most iconic voices in Christian Music.

Today I’m chatting with Natasha Owens. Natasha’s new album Stand is set to be released any day now and we’re going to get a preview of the project. But more important than her new album is her story of how God brought her through a severe depression she went through after the accidental death of her father. Natasha shares about the importance music played and continues to play in her healing and going through several tough life experiences. She also shares how her community both helped and hindered her healing. And the realization that God has her back through it all.

Today I’m talking with David Zach from the band Remedy Drive. Here is a guy who was minding his own business, just trying to be a rock star, when he learned about the atrocities of human trafficking that is occuring in our world today. And David had the guts to say, “I’m not just going to read about it and watch the stories on the news. I’m going to do something. I’m going to get involved.”

Today I am chatting with Simon Ådahl. Simon is a Swedish musician who has been part of the bands Edin-Ådahl and Bertil-Edin. He has also released some solo projects and several of these albums made their way to the states back in the mid-80s. Simon has some incredible stories to share about smuggling Bibles into the communist countries of Romania and Yugoslavia. But he also has a testimony of how forgiveness has completely changed the trajectory of his life, and I can’t wait for you to hear this powerful testimony.

Today’s guest is a multi-talented musician who has been active in a number of bands. There is ArkAngel, Radio Halo, and Atomic Opera. He also worked with Caedmon’s Call for a season in addition to having several albums of his own. I’m not sure how to classify Kemper’s music. Is it Old English, Celtic, Medieval, or Art/Progressive Rock? Probably a little of all each of those styles. But Kemper is much more than just a musician. He is an author, teacher, and an Episcopal priest, currently working at a Lutheran church.

Paul Clark started his music career writing songs about his new faith and sharing them with whoever would listen. His first album from 1971 sold so well that executives at Word Records offered to help distribute his record because it was something new and they saw this Jesus Music was impacting the country for Christ. Flash forward 50 years and Paul is still active in helping people use music as a tool for sharing the Gospel. After more than 30 albums, Paul’s passion for reaching the lost hasn’t wavered one bit and I’m excited for you to hear his story.

Babbie Mason has been making music since the early 80s. She was discovered at a music conference in the mid-80s, but like so many discovery stories, there was a lot of hard work and study that went into her discovery. I love talking to people who have been successful in their craft and share that success by training and mentoring others. Babbie has done that in spades. From being a middle school teacher to writing books and coaching new artists, Babbie uses her gifts to make sure those around her can use their gifts to the fullest.

Michele Pillar was part of the early Maranatha Praise singers before releasing her self-titled album in 1982. She has released seven albums, is a 3-time Grammy and Dove award nominee, and is a sought-after conference speaker.

Unless you are an avid credit reader like me, you might not recognize my guest today by name. But I guarantee you will recognize his work. Dave Clark is a songwriter, publisher, and arranger who has lived in Nashville for the past 40 plus years. He has written songs for Rascal Flatts, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, Donny Osmond, Glen Campbell, CeCe Winans, Al Denson… just to name a few. And he’s written at least one #1 song in four consecutive decades with more than 25 number one songs on the Christian Music Charts. I think Dave is pretty good at his job!

Today's podcast is a world tour, hitting 3 time zones to chat with the members of the Paul Colman Trio. We laughed a lot, talked about dead Hobbits, and dug into living our lives intentionally for Jesus. How does God take our broken and messed up lives and use them to show people around us that God loves them? This is definitely a conversation you do not want to miss!

Have you ever had a random conversation with someone at the grocery store or maybe on an airplane and you come away feeling like this is a person you would like to get to know more? Today’s conversation with Byron Chambers was that for me. The time we spent together went way too fast and I did not want our time to end. “Who is Byron Chambers?”, you might be asking. Well, you are going to want to stick around and find out! Because Byron is a guy who loves Jesus with all his heart and is using his skills to impact mainstream music with God’s love in a way few others can.

Boy, do I have a treat for you today. If you are a worship leader you are definitely going to want to stick around for today's podcast with Joel Weldon. Joel is a voice-over actor and communication coach who spent years as a worship leader working with the likes of Promise Keepers, Young Live, Harvest Crusades, and Billy Graham Crusades. Joel has a heart for worship that is very contagious. This podcast could actually be a master class on leading worship.

Smalltown Poets formed in 1996 in Atlanta, GA, and have released eight albums and a couple of Christmas projects. Their first major-label album earned a Grammy nomination. But as you hear them share their story, it isn’t about awards or album sales. They are seeking to follow God in their music careers, but also in their lives. But why am I telling you about this? Let’s let them share their story in their own words.

I got to sit down with Michael Sweet. You know, the lead singer of Stryper, part of the duo Sweet & Lynch, and solo artist Michael Sweet. Yea, that guy. For those who may not be familiar with Michael, here is a quick intro. He has released 8 solo albums. Was the lead singer for the rock band Boston for four years. And is a founding member of the band Stryper, along with his brother Robert and friend Oz Fox. Stryper has sold more than 10 million albums and was a pioneer in Christian metal when it was getting started in the 1980s.

If you’ve been listening to this podcast for any length of time, you know how passionate I am about living in community. And many times that community is with friends or your church. Sometimes that community is an intentional project to help others. Today on the podcast I get to chat with Jadon Lavik. Jadon is president of Better Together Ministries. One of the things that intrigued me about Jadon was his purpose statement, “We aim to transform communities both locally and globally because we are truly better together.” This is living out community in very real and tangible ways.

Mickey & Becki Moore were professional street singers in New York's Greenwich Village when they felt called to be part of the new Jesus Movement of the 1970s. In today's podcast, we hear the story behind the call God placed on them and how he provided despite industry roadblocks and people telling them that this wasn't a good career path.

Today I welcome to the husband and wife team of Steve & Annie Chapman. Christian music enthusiasts will recognize Steve and Annie as a vocal recording duo from the early eighties, but before that, they were both in the pioneering CCM group Dogwood. What many may not realize is that they have continued to record and have released around 20 albums and are seasoned authors, releasing more than 30 books between them, covering topics from marriage and parenting to hunting and character development.

He went on to write a number of worship songs like "There Is None Like You" and "Above All," for which he won a Dove Award in 2003. In addition to more than a dozen solo albums, he has been a bass player and studio musician working with the likes of Amy Grant, Ricky Skaggs, Don Moen, and Twila Paris.

Jaime Jamgochian is my guest today on the podcast. Jaime is a Berklee College of Music graduate, which means she has some mad music skills. But what is most evident about her life is her reliance on God. She is passionate about sharing her faith and telling how God is a healing, caring God. Now, Jaime has just released All Things an album about how God is working to make things beautiful. Like she states during our chat, "If it's not good yet, God is not done yet."

On today’s podcast, we have a special treat to talk to not one, but two really talented people. First, we’ve got Renee Garcia-Bliss. Renee released a couple of albums back in the late 1980s and has done background vocals both in the studio and on the road. I remember seeing Renee as one of Amy Grant's back up vocalists on several of her tours. Then we have Lang Bliss, who has a pretty impressive resume of his own. Lang has been a drummer, producer, songwriter, and live event promoter for some artists you might know... Michael W. Smith, Michael McDonald, Big Daddy Weave...

Of all the singers I’ve heard, there are a small handful of people that every time I hear their voice, I stop and just soak in the music… close my eyes and just basque in excellence. Singers like Matthew Ward, Russ Taff, and Ashley Cleveland who could sing the dictionary, and I would buy it. My shortlist of favorite vocalists also includes a pair of siblings, one of whom is my guest today. Lynda Randle is a singer who can SING! And obviously, I’m not alone in that assessment. Billy Graham, Andrae Crouch, and Bill Gaither have all asked to work with Lynda.
