Insomnie – Moon Bride

Brilliant alt-pop music from the artist formerly known as Carly Taich. As indicated by the title, this concept album is the compelling tale of an unsettled and sleep-deprived mind struggling with life and faith. Musically you will find it brimming with original lyrics,  stunning arrangements, memorable melodies, and impressive vocals. If the music industry were fair this record would be a well-known chart-topper. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

Walking On This Road – Jessamyn Day

If you’re into folk with a little alternative flair, Jessamyn Day’s new EP has just the right mixture of singer/songwriter realness and eclectic flavors. Her refreshingly down-home sound is paired with encouraging yet honest explorations of daily life with Jesus, grounded in perseverance and truth. (Notable Tracks: Highways, Safe Place) SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

When The Turbulence Hits – Hopeful

Filled with the whimsy and alt-rock emo riffs that ruled the noughties, the debut EP from this San Diego based outfit grapples with mental health in a fun, honest way. The fact it was produced by Gable Price means it will be a fast favorite with fans of alternative Christian music.  SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Break the Mold” – The Other Thomas

This debut single from The Other Thomas is artful modern rock at its finest. “Break the Mold” is about taking chances outside one’s comfort zone and is based on Debbie Harry’s journey from a small NJ town to musical fame. The video shot in NYC is particularly interesting. The debut album arrives in May. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Brutal Miracle” – Savannah Locke

Fragile yet irrepressibly strong, this gorgeous song captures the pain and hope we experience when we dwell with Christ in the darkness. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“God of Color” – Common Hymnal

The Common Hymnal website calls this buoyant upbeat gospel track: “A full-throttled and unapologetic celebration of the melanated savior.” You will feel this celebration! SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“If You’d Let Me” – Skye Peterson

An enchanting melody elevates the tender call of Jesus inviting us into rest in Skye Peterson’s newest single “If You’d Let Me.” This beautiful message is perfect for meditating on the truth that Jesus is always standing at the door if we would just knock. Skye reminds us that Jesus says “I already listen, I already love you.” Musically and lyrically a song worthy to put on repeat. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Don’t Let Go of Me” by Abby Siler

This beautifully executed song will resonate with anyone who has had a hard time seeing God in the dark. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Somebody Somebody” – Oaks

A timeless message about a moment that’s been repeated over and over for so many over the ages – the moment when a person realizes they need SOMEBODY to save them… and they turn to the one who can. Catchy pop with beautifully layered harmonies on the chorus, the Shorman brothers (performing under the name Oaks) are absolutely a new artist to watch this year! SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Antidote” – Guy Sebastian (ft Sam Fischer)

A gospel-filled anthem from an Aussie music stalwart, that crosses the divide between sacred and secular. It was co-written with Hillsong’s Mike Fatkin and pushes the envelope of what we can expect from Sebastian’s upcoming album. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK

“Segura” – Amanda Camille & Jeremiah Paltan

This beautiful song in Spanish will remind us that even in sadness doubt and struggle, we can be safe and sure in Christ Jesus. SPOTIFY_LINK  YOUTUBE_LINK
