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

“Forevermore” From Australia & Atlanta Based Worship Movement, Influencers, Hits Today



  Freeing Tracks Follows Release Of “I’m Yours” 
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 compelling ballad builds to the anchoring chorus of “I am Yours forevermore” harkening back to Ephesians 1:18. The lyrics paired with the soaring instrumental were written by Sawyer Stromwall, Mark Evans and Chloe Evans.

“’Forevermore’ embodies a story of surrender, redemption and hope,” shares Influencers Worship Executive Producer Mark Evans. “The best part about this song is it didn’t come out of a session with seasoned writers, but rather from the raw and personal moments of a 20 year-old girl crying out to God.”

Influencers’ debut EP garnered over a million streams around its debut last year, led by the No. 1 single “Imagination.” The worship movement was born out Influencers Church which is a part of the Hillsong family. With roots in Australia, Influencers Church now has 10 Church campuses worldwide led by Global Senior Pastors Ashley and Jane Evans.

MARK SCHULTZ RELEASES “FOLLOW”

MARK SCHULTZ RELEASES FOLLOW,
AVAILABLE TODAY
NASHVILLE, Tenn (August 17, 2018) – Follow, the latest release from beloved singer/songwriter Mark Schultz is available today. This is the first full project from the beloved artist in six years and it’s evident that music fans have been waiting for this music. The release rapidly climbed the iTunes Christian & Gospel albums chart, spending the day in the Top 10 of releases.
Early praise of the project has begun, with Hallels.com saying “Mark Schultz is to contemporary Christian music (CCM) what Elton John and Billy Joel are to pop music.  Schultz has an effortless way of incorporating the piano into his pop-centric songs that the piano becomes a dueting “voice.” As a result, you can always count on Schultz’s brilliant arpeggios to bring out emotions and nuances often not communicated by the human voice. Over time, Schultz’s songs have enjoyed an added layer of emotional richness not often present among his peers. In this regard, Schultz’s music is indispensable within CCM.”
The album features Schultz’s brand new songs “Hope is Rising,” “Time Goes So Fast,” “Psalm 91” and others, as well as his timeless fan-favorites such as the worship anthems “God of Glory” and “I Am.”
The powerful title track – “Follow” – parallels how Schultz navigates his life, not by his own will, but God’s. Originally inspired by a story Schultz heard about a girl with a rough upbringing and no father-figure, Schultz discovered “Follow” was farther reaching than he knew: “As I lived with the song, I thought, ‘This isn’t just for her; this is for me. What do I follow?’”
Follow is available at www.markschultzmusic.com, iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and everywhere music is sold.

Breathing Praise: The Journey of Inspiration Worship

 

 

Breathing Praise: The Journey of Inspiration Worship

 

by Marcus Hathcock

 

“Don’t waste a breath. That’s how I want to live the rest of my life.”

 

As she battled Stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Linda Doane couldn’t take a normal breath for six long weeks. In that time—as well as the two subsequent battles with cancer—she realized the simple, profound gift of breathing.

 

Less than a year ago, Linda had been given 2-12 months to live, but now, after participating in a clinical trial, she has been declared in full remission for the first time. Free from the cancer battle, she is using her breath to praise God with Inspiration Worship. The release of her first album, Powerful, is the fulfillment of promises, callings and giftings in her life.

 

Singing and writing songs has been a part of Linda’s life since she was a child, but it wasn’t until she wrote a card for her daughter’s first birthday that she realized she needed to pay more attention to this creative outlet.

 

“I’d written, ‘Always chase your dreams,’” she said. “And I thought, ‘Wow… I’m not chasing my dream at all.’” Linda began writing songs regularly with a coworker at Chrysler, but her songwriting took a major turn after she’d read through the Bible.

 

“I believed in God, but I would say I was all religion and no relationship at that point,” Linda said. “Reading the Bible for myself really transformed everything. I couldn’t write about anything but Him after that.”

 

Linda’s songwriting grew and developed further when she married Tom, and her musical calling intensified in the midst of her health struggles.

 

“After the second time I’d been diagnosed with cancer and treated, we just kinda said, ‘What are we waiting for?’ And we just started going for it.”

 

From the get-go, Linda felt strongly that this new venture would be called “Inspiration,” and lyrically, it was clear the music would be vertical worship. Zoning in on the name “Inspiration Worship,” Linda was stunned when she did a dictionary search.

 

“When I went to look up the word ‘inspiration,’ I saw it was defined as a single inhale,” Linda recalled. “It was one of those fall on the floor moments for me. I just knew it was God confirming. It all made sense… Inspiration is inhaling His breath, and Worship is exhaling our gratitude back to Him.”

 

Inspiration Worship’s first release, a single titled “Whose,” was a song questioning the things we worship and the firstfruits of a locally produced EP that released in 2015.

 

“It was definitely a very long path to getting to chase the dream, but I firmly believe God’s timing is perfect,” Linda said.

 

Bolstered by her long-awaited initial effort, Linda reached out to one of Christian music’s top producers, Ian Eskelin, via Facebook, to share her story and their music. That interaction led to a phone call that changed everything.

 

“I think initially he called to give us just a pep talk,” Linda said. “It was the grace of God, though, and he agreed to meet with us.”

 

In that meeting, Eskelin and the Doanes established an “immediate bond” as they connected over their shared family experiences with cancer.

 

That friendship turned into a partnership for new music, with Eskelin and his Radiate Music team producing Inspiration Worship’s first full-length record.

 

Although Linda wanted to release Powerful last year, she felt like it wasn’t finished, and then her “terminal” diagnosis came. The final pieces came in the midst of her last cancer treatments– the club-friendly song of dedication, “Take Me,” and the chill-pop warning against sin, “Roar.” Once she was discharged from the hospital, she was ready to get right to work.

 

“The first thing we did was to drive straight to Franklin [TN], where Ian is, and recorded both of those songs the next day, bald head and all… nothing’s gonna stop me,” she said.

 

Carrying Linda’s mission to share the gospel message and God’s power in her life, the 12 tracks of Powerful show a confident, unabashed Inspiration Worship operating with courageous creativity. Linda’s airy, cutting-edge vocals and Eskelin and musician Clément Ducasse’s ethereal combination of electronic chillstep/trip-hop beats and synths with piano and rock elements come across as unexpected and fresh.

 

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-like songs, such as the treatise on the devil’s tactics on “Powerful Lie” and the aforementioned “Roar.”

 

Linda sings about devotion to God on the corporate friendly “All I Am,” the authority of believers on “Heaven Reigns,” and the need for the church to “Rise Up.” Standing alone thematically is the song Linda and Tom wrote for their daughter during her battle with anorexia, titled “I Can’t Fix You.”

 

Although described as worship music, and functionally operating as such, Powerful is anything but another run at creating the next standard congregational worship record.

 

“I don’t think worshipping God should be confined to a sound,” Linda said. “It’s not about the sound; it’s about the heart of the song—what that song is inspiring someone to do. I don’t think a lot of Christians walk around feeling powerful, and that’s the overall message I want them to come away with from this record.”

 

As for Linda, she is feeling pretty powerful in Christ these days, resting in God’s provision for her life and the promises that lie ahead.

 

“My life has pretty much been in crisis mode for the last six years,” Linda said. “But God has been saying all along, ‘Hey, hang on you’re going through a rough season, but there is so much good that’s to come.’ I’m ready.”

 

In the meantime, she’s not wasting a breath.
