INSPIRATION WORSHIP RELEASES FULL-LENGTH DEBUT ALBUM, POWERFUL, TODAY FROM RADIATE MUSIC


First Radio Single, “Take Me,” Going For Ads Now; CCM Premieres Video, NewReleaseToday Offers Free Song Download

New Radiate Music artist and Michigan-based Inspiration Worship, featuring songwriter, vocalist and cancer survivor Linda Doane, globally releases its full-length debut Powerful today (Aug. 31) from Radiate Music. The new, 12-song album that carries Linda’s mission to share the gospel and God’s power in her life, is available at iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon.com, Spotify and more digital and streaming outlets everywhere.

Along with the new album, Inspiration Worship has released the lead single, “Take Me,” to radio while CCM Magazine premiered the song’s lyric video and NewReleaseToday.com offers the track as a free download.

“‘Take Me’ was inspired by a Scripture I had written in marker and hung in my office: Matthew 10:7-8,” shares Doane. “‘And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.’ Every time I read about the miracles of Jesus and the disciples, it inspires me to keep pressing into the Lord and offering everything I have to Him because that’s the kind of Christian walk I want—a powerful one.”

Less than a year ago, Linda had been given two to 12 months to live as she battled Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Feeling what it was like to not take a normal breath for six long weeks in 2012, she realized the simple, profound gift of breathing. Now in full remission following her third bout with cancer, she is using her breath to praise God, revealing a confident, courageous creativity through Inspiration Worship’s Powerful.

Inspired by her story, Christian Music Weekly (CMW) ran a page-one cover story while national radio shows and podcasts like “Soul2Soul Radio,” “Life with Purpose Radio,” Campus Crusade for Christ’s “Making Your Life Count,” The Song Revolution Podcast and more outlets completed feature interviews to air soon.

Showcasing Linda’s airy, cutting-edge vocals over an ethereal combination of electronic chillstep/trip-hop beats and synths with piano and rock elements, attributed to both producer Ian Eskelin and musician Clément Ducasse, the heart of Powerful expresses God’s sovereignty (“One God”), Jesus’ sacrifice (“The Blood”), His return (“A Scepter and Crown”), His grace (“Never Let Me Go”) and His strength (“You Never Change”). There are also sermon-type songs, such as the treatise on the devil’s tactics on “Powerful Lie” and the chill pop warning against sin, “Roar.”

Linda sings about devotion to God on the corporate friendly “All I Am” and album opener “Take Me,” the authority of believers on “Heaven Reigns,” and the need for the church to “Rise Up” in a song featuring guest artist Adam Klutinoty of the band About A Mile. 

Standing alone thematically is the song Linda and her husband Tom wrote for their daughter in the midst of her battle with anorexia, titled “I Can’t Fix You,” which also becomes the first video from the album.

“I don’t think a lot of Christians walk around feeling powerful,” says Linda. “There’s power available to believers in Jesus, and that’s the overall message I want people to come away from with this record.”

The Afters’ Powerful “Well Done” Available Now

The Afters’ Powerful “Well Done” Available Now

Best Of Album, The Beginning and Everything After, To Release Nov. 2
Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 31, 2018) –  “Well Done,” a song that points to the hope of Heaven and a life well lived, is the newest single from The Afters. The track will hit radio airwaves on Sept. 14, following The Afters’ upcoming performance at the notable Christian Music Broadcasters (CMB) Momentum Conference.  It released to all digital outlets on Friday with features in key playlists, including Spotify’s New Music Friday and Top Christian, as well as Amazon Music’s Fresh Christian playlist. “Well Done” heralds a brand new collection of music expected to release in spring 2019.

The song, already cultivating stories of hope and encouragement among fans, was years in the making as front man Josh Havens’ shares, “I lost my dad to cancer about fourteen years ago and there’s been a void in our family ever since. This past year, it especially hit home when two of my sisters got married. I just thought the whole time about how my dad would’ve loved to be there. As I looked around, I realized that my dad loved Jesus, and because of that he showed his family what it means to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. Because of his impact, my siblings and I all love Jesus. I can’t image a better legacy to leave behind. Someday – when this life is over – we’re going to leave behind all the pains of this world, all the suffering, all the heartache and we’re going to go before our creator. When we see Jesus face to face, we can look forward to hearing those words, ‘well done, my good and faithful servant.’ I hope this song is a comfort for anyone who has lost someone they love and is a reminder of how important this life is. ’’

As The Afters’ prepare a new collection of music, the band is pausing to reflect on a memorable past with the Nov. 2 release of The Beginning and Everything After. The 12 track best of project celebrates the triumphs, including chart-topping albums and singles, TV placements and theme songs, an MTVU Award, GMA Dove Awards and other accolades. This new mix of hits and favorites allows the band’s compelling pop hooks and inspirational anthems to take on new life, alongside 2 brand new songs that point to a future of exciting new music to come. The new tracks include “Fear No More” and the single “Well Done.”

PLUMB Releases Second Book: FIGHT FOR HER…Even if You Have to Fight Her

 Artist Announces Upcoming Tour to Support New Album that Features the Title Track to BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN Film.
Nashville, TN – Prolific multi-genre recording artist PLUMB continues to inspire and empower with the release of her sophomore book FIGHT FOR HER…Even if You Have To Fight Her.   FIGHT FOR HER is a moving challenge to fight for each other – even if that means fighting with each other. Our relationships can often be messy, but when we challenge and support each other with love and grace, lives are transformed.      “Originally I planned to write a book for mothers and daughters, but as I started working on the book, it hit me that ALL women are daughters, whether they ever become a mother or not,” Plumb explains. “We need to be reminded that we areall sons and daughters of God and we have been and will continue to be fought for…regardless of our earthly experience with the parents we have or haven’t had.”   Drawn from the generational lessons of both being and having a daughter, PLUMB explores fundamental questions everyone, especially females, face with depth and levity. Her sense of humor and down-to-earth style draw us to hold on to Jesus and each other with full hearts, as we strive for the best for each other. With thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter, FIGHT FOR HER offers an empowering, encouraging and enriching read, both as a stand-alone book or small group discussion.     She continues, “I wrote the book from my perspective as a woman to challenge the way we, as women, communicate with each other; however, the sentiment resonates with men equally. Often ‘fighting for’ can look like ‘fighting with’, and ‘standing up for’ can be interpreted as ‘standing up to’. I hope FIGHT FOR HER begins a revolution of people committed to fighting for, supporting, and challenging each other to be all we were created to be, by communicating the truth of what God says about us, to us, in love.  Sometimes, that is telling someone who thinks or feels unworthy how beautiful and valuable they truly are. And sometimes it means telling them no.”       FIGHT FOR HER comes on the heels of the BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN album, written simultaneously, that released in June. The book and album speak to one another as PLUMB continues her commitment to sharing transparent, personal stories that remind us that we are all broken, we are not alone, and we are all loved fiercely by God who can powerfully restore us in ways we could never imagine.    Following the themes of the book and album, PLUMB has just launched a playful Alice in Wonderland inspired video for the album’s title track. It serves as a reminder that, much like a teacup, we are all beautiful and valuable, but easily broken.  PLUMB shares, “No matter how broken we are, it doesn’t change who we belong to, our beauty, our value, or how He loves us.  No matter what we have done or what has been done to us, we are still His. He wants us to give Him that brokenness, the chips and breaks, the pain and sadness, to advance His kingdom. He invites us to celebrate how we are all His children. That ultimately is all that matters. Being His. Being beautiful. Even in our brokenness.”   The “Beautifully Broken” video can be viewed here: http://plumbmusic.net/beautifully-broken-official-music-video/   The title track is also the theme song for the film Beautifully Broken, just released in theaters on August 24.   PLUMB tour dates: 8/25 – Waconia MN  9/2 – West Liberty, OH

Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 24, 2018) – Adding to a string of summer singles, Influencers are unveiling “Forevermore” today through Syntax Creative to all digital outlets.

The Annie Moses Foundation programs are an opportunity for us to fulfill our purpose – together.”   Through events at the Annie Moses Summer Music Festival and the Conservatory of Annie Moses program , Annie Moses Band is able to deeply invest in the lives of their students, giving them unique opportunities to experience what it’s like to perform at a high level with extraordinary musicians, all while sharing their artistic passion and profound purpose to raise up a brand-new generation of young artists committed to godly excellence in the world of the arts.   This year, Annie Moses Band was honored to have several special guests join them as part of the week’s festivities, lending their artistic talents and skills as instructors and mentors. In addition to multi-Platinum selling, Grammy-nominated recording artist and actress Jaci Velasquez and Dove Award-winning songwriter Krissy Nordhoff (“Your Great Name,” “Mercy Tree”), eminent Shakespearean and acting legend John Rhys-Davies, best known to moviegoers as Gimli in The Lord of the Rings, or as Indiana Jones’ (Harrison Ford’s) comic sidekick, Sallah, in two of Paramount’s INDIANA JONES adventure films, starred as the narrator in the world-premiere of the brand-new musical Merry Christmas Uncle Scrooge!.
