About A Mile – Trust You All The Way

About A Mile

Trust You All The Way

by Jesse Florea

If faith could be measured with a guitar amplifier, Adam Klutinoty’s amp would go to 11. The lead singer and guitarist for About A Mile has seen the mess his lack of faith has created in the past. Now his faith is cranked up an extra notch.

“I want to take Christ seriously and trust Him all the way,” Adam says. “One hundred percent.”

That’s easy to say, but hard to live out.

“I’m the best example I know of giving your heart 90 percent to God,” Adam admits. “I thought, God has a plan for me, but I have some cool plans of my own in case He doesn’t come through.”

The aptly named Trust You All The Way isn’t just About A Mile’s latest album, it also describes the band’s attitude regarding their lives and ministry.

For most of his life, Adam felt his plans and God’s plans lined up. Music was a constant at his family’s home outside of Pittsburgh. Adam picked up the guitar after seeing his dad and older brother Micah play. Soon he and his brothers Luke and Levi formed a band.

“We were always jamming together,” Adam says. “Then we found a youth group that needed a worship band.”

At first, they played songs such as “Rain Down” or “Undignified.” Then they started writing their own songs and people really liked them. Adam was just 16 at the time. Levi, at 17, was the oldest, and Luke was 14.

Coming from a blue-collar Christian family, the brothers believed in hard work. Adam remembers sitting in his room all day shredding guitar licks or playing scales. All of his practice made him an amazing performer. And that’s what he dreamed of—playing for thousands.

As soon as the brothers finished high school, they went on a tour along the West Coast. Eventually, they connected with Grammy-nominated producer Ian Eskelin. Eskelin brought the band to Word Records for its debut album in 2014.

It appeared that Adam’s faith had paid off. All through his childhood and high school years, he’d dreamed of a big-time record deal.

“What separates the Christian from the world is one five-letter word: Faith,” Adam says. “I’m talking about God-pleasing faith that believes before seeing and allows us to confidently stand within the hardest battles.”

But when those battles hit, Adam’s 90-percent faith failed.

From the Darkness

After signing the record deal, Adam developed ulcerative colitis, a disease that causes stomach pain, bleeding and weight loss. At one point, he’d throw up anything he ate and became a stick figure of his normal healthy self.

Countless times during the recording process and on tour for the first album, Adam got on his knees and prayed for God to heal him. As the symptoms persisted, his faith waned. And since God wouldn’t come through for him, Adam felt he had to work harder.

He wrote 150 songs to come up with the 12 that made the first album. He went to the president of Word Records and said, “We need the biggest budget and whatever producer I want.” Adam did everything in his power to make the project perfect.

“I was trying to work, work, work for the kingdom,” Adam says. “But a lot of it was to justify the mess that was going on in my heart.”

After losing faith that God could heal him, Adam turned to drugs. A doctor had given him a medication that took away the symptoms of ulcerative colitis. But Adam became addicted to other drugs.

“It wasn’t an illegal prescription, but it was definitely something I didn’t need,” Adam says. “And I was abusing it every day.”

On the outside, Adam looked like a good Christian. He’d give his shoes to a homeless person he met on the street and talk about God to thousands during the Winter Jam tour. But inside his downward spiral continued.

Although About A Mile’s debut received rave reviews and was the best-selling Christian album by a new artist, it didn’t live up to the hope or the hype.

“I thought the first album was supposed to work and make everything better,” Adam says.

Adam and his brothers had moved to Nashville with nothing. They lived in and toured in their van. They all worked blue-collar jobs. After the tour and album sales, nothing had really changed. They had the same van, and Adam still worked in a factory.

“I got bitter towards God,” Adam says. “I wasn’t finding my satisfaction in Christ, so I looked for other vices to get me through the day. It was complete darkness in my mind.”

Into the Light

Things got so bad that Adam would scream at his brothers if they walked past his bedroom late at night. He even tossed a Bible across the room when his girlfriend tried to get him to read it.

Adam grew up reading God’s Word. He knows it backwards and forwards. Nearly all of his songs are based on a Bible verse. So deep inside he knew that neither height nor depth, nor anything in creation could separate him for the love of God (Romans 8:39).

Then one night he experienced it first-hand.

Adam told his girlfriend that he was struggling with drug addiction. She could see the bitterness in his heart towards God, but she didn’t know about the drugs.

They cried together on the floor, then she looked at him and said, “Okay, what else?”

Adam hadn’t told anybody that he dealt with lust. It wasn’t pornography. But lustful thoughts would creep into his mind. He didn’t want to tell her, because he thought it’d break her heart into a million pieces.

For the first time in his life, he came totally clean with another person and with God. He confessed his deepest and darkest sins. And his girlfriend’s response reflected Christ’s when she opened her arms, hugged him and said, “I still love you.”

“Ninety percent isn’t enough,” Adam says with tears in his eyes. “We need to come to God with 100 percent and lay everything down at the Cross.”

They cried and prayed a lot that night. His girlfriend prayed for his healing. And Adam was delivered from it all—the drugs, the lust, even the disease.

“I laid down everything at the Cross and a disease that I was suffering from for four-and-a-half years is gone,” Adam says. “It’s completely gone.”

Now instead of “helping” God to achieve his dreams, Adam’s committed to following God with the right heart. He’s seen God bring more joy into his life and more power to his songs.

“We’ve been playing ‘Trust You All The Way,’” Adam says. “We’ve been playing ‘Traded.’ We’ve been playing ‘Hallelujah.’ And people have been coming to the altar, confessing their sins and accepting Christ into their lives. It was never like that before.”

Each song on the new album radiates with honesty and musicality. From the hard-driving “Taking Back” to the acoustic “All I Need” to the pop flavored “Born To Live,” the lyrics point directly to Christ and His power.

“The first album was good,” Adam says. “But I was focused on singing the best vocal and making everything perfect. On this album, I just wanted to make sure God was speaking through me.”

Adam gave up a lot of control with this project, even turning over creative decisions to Eskelin during the production process. With the first album, Adam wanted to hear several different mixes of a song. This time he trusted Ian’s expertise. The band also switched labels, signing with Eskelin’s recording label, Radiate Music.

The brothers are so excited about the new project that they want as many people as possible to hear it. When the band begins its “Trust You All The Way Tour” on October 14, every concert will be open to anyone to attend. Only a freewill offering will be taken at events.

“We’re going out and playing for free, trusting God to provide,” Adam says. “We believe He wants to sustain us throughout this tour, and we want to give all the glory to Him.”

For most bands taking that leap of faith would be scary . . . but Adam’s faith goes to 11.

GRAMMY/Dove Award Nominated All Sons & Daughters’ Poets & Saints

GRAMMY/Dove Award Nominated All Sons & Daughters’ Poets & Saints

Album Tops Retail Charts, Releases Amidst 5-Star Acclaim


Album, Companion Book and Video-based Curriculum

Invite People to Love Like Poets, Live Like Saints


“Poets & Saints Fall Tour” Featuring All Sons & Daughters,

Jamie George, Special Guest Sandra McCracken Launches Today



GRAMMY and Dove Award nominated worshipers All Sons & Daughters released their fourth full-length album, Poets & Saints, last week to 5-star critical acclaim as the project hit No. 1 on the SoundScan Praise & Worship chart and No. 1 on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Albums chart in the U.S., holding that position all week and hitting as high as No. 6 on the iTunes overall Albums chart.  Poets & Saints also hit No. 4 on both the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel and Folk charts, No. 10 on Billboard’s overall Independent chart and No. 3 on the UK Official Christian & Gospel Albums chart.



The album’s first single, “I Surrender,” which was co-written by Jason Ingram and inspired by the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, sets the tone for the recording. This track, as with every turn on the album, which was produced by All Sons & Daughters and Chad Copelin (Crowder, Gungor),explores new sonic territory for the band. The duo’s David Leonard narrates the story of the song at, as well as tells the story of “Rest In You” inspired by St. Augustine and against the backdrop of Milan at


In addition to the album, All Sons & Daughters’ pastor, Jamie George, penned a companion book, Poets and Saints: Eternal Insight, Extravagant Love, Ordinary People, which delves into the lives of the poets (writers) and saints who inspired the songs. And together, George and AS&D’s Leonard and Leslie Jordan created the Poets & Saints video-based curriculum and a study guide, Poets & Saints: A Community Experience, for churches and small groups.



The “Poets & Saints” concept took shape when All Sons & Daughters, George and a film crew ventured to Europe to trace the lives of C.S. Lewis, Saint Patrick, John Newton, Saint Thérèse, Saint Francis, William Cowper, Saint Augustine, George MacDonald and others, mining for undiscovered gems, something to connect these individuals to modern believers. The resulting epic journey into the lives and stories of these Christ-followers that God used to wake up the world forms an interactive worship experience that introduces 10 important influencers in Christendom, while making a very human connection between their lives and the lives of Christians today.


Together, these resources are resonating with critics and others discovering Poets & Saints:


“I’ve always said that the best teachers are storytellers, and Jamie George is one of the best storytellers I know. I’ve been blessed by hearing him tell his stories in person for years. Now it’s your turn!” – Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host


Poets & Saints, All Sons & Daughters’ fourth studio album, is not only a history lesson combined with worship, but it also experiments with combining several musical elements: jazz, folk, bluegrass, country and contemporary worship. Jordan and Leonard have crafted a beautiful album well worth listening to again and again and again!” –


“This album continues the classic sound we have come to expect and love from All Sons & Daughters, but it expands the boundaries of those expectations…it does not disappoint. The result is a very theologically rich and musically diverse group of songs to inspire and fuel the church in worship.” – Worship Leader (5-Star review)


“The beautiful new album from All Sons & Daughters…feels familiar within the duo’s catalog, marked by intimate warmth, but never tired.  It’s a tender gift with lovely tracks that guide the listener into the presence of God…this entire album warrants your attention.  The beauty is made even clearer if you grab the companion book of the same name by author/pastor Jamie George.” – CCM Magazine


“The concept behind this album is unique, meaningful, and lines up perfectly with the band’s sound and style…All Sons & Daughters has wrapped timeless truths in a relatable, beautiful package, and which I believe will strengthen the Church.” –


“Jamie cuts through the religious stereotypes. His laid-back, transparent style of storytelling is extremely refreshing and encouraging for a guy like me, who was raised in the church and feels like he has seen it all. Jamie is a new friend that we all truly need to hear from.” – Jeremy Cowart, photographer and founder of Help-Portrait


“All Sons & Daughters continues to impress… Poets & Saints continues the duo’s legacy in grand fashion… thoughtful, musically excellent release with a sincere heart of worship.” –


“Jamie George is a masterful storyteller with a penchant for real-life situational significance. I’ve never felt comfortable with church or its confines, but I am proud to call Jamie my pastor, friend, and fellow artist.” – Kevin Max, artist and author, formerly with DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline


Poets and Saints is truly a treat to listen to. The music is steeped in history and wisdom…Each song tells a story and draws connecting lines from the past to the present, which ultimately directs our gazes upward to the Creator of it all.” –


The journey that led to the creation of Poets & Saints served as a spiritual wakeup call for those involved in the process, and that experience is now being taken on the road by All Sons & Daughters for the “The Poets & Saints Fall Tour” which also features George and special guest Sandra McCracken. The tour launches today, Sept. 15, in Chandler, AZ and traverses the country before wrapping up Nov. 15 in Birmingham, AL.

September 14, 2016 – The Most-Awarded Female Vocalist in Gospel Music History and Christian Music Icon Sandi Patty is following up her spring capacity-crowd run of shows by tacking on a string of sold-out shows on her Forever Grateful: The Farewell Tour.

I knew that this tour would be meaningful. I knew that this tour would be professionally executed in every possible way. I had no idea I would have this much fun and be so overwhelmed when saying ‘thank you’ across the country night after night. This fall is a continuation of everything that we created in the spring. The Forever Grateful Tour brings an evening full of heart, happiness and hope and, without a doubt, more gratitude than I have words to express.”

Diamond-Selling Band Journey’s Jonathan Cain Set To Release What God Wants To Hear Oct. 21





First Single “Deeper Than Deep” Available Sept. 23 With Preorder


Free Song Download Available Now At



Jonathan Cain, longtime keyboardist and rhythm guitarist in Journey, co-writer of the No. 1 digital catalog song in history, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” as well as writer of “Faithfully” and co-writer of “Who’s Crying Now,” “Open Arms” and many more international hit songs, will release his solo album, What God Wants to Hear, Oct. 21 on Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution.


Cain, who continues to tour the world with Journey, one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, crafted his new solo album from his personal faith-journey that started in Chicago when, at a young age, he wanted to be a priest. His faith was challenged after he survived a horrific fire in third grade at his school, Our Lady of the Angels School, where 92 of his fellow students along with three nuns died that day. Cain found healing and redemption in music, and his long ‘journey’ eventually led him back to the seminal faith of his youth.


Weathering professional and personal storms, Cain declares, “Only God can take a mess and turn it into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph, a victim into victory.”


The first single from his new album available for download with preorder at iTunes beginning Sept. 23, “Deeper than Deep,” like the rest of What God Wants to Hear, was recorded at Addiction Sound, Cain’s state-of-the-art studio in Nashville. The video for the song, which will be released soon, features photographs Cain has taken throughout the years.


Cain is also exclusively offering, for a limited time, a free song download of the bonus track, “Remove Every Veil,” along with an introduction to the song from Pastor Paula White, to anyone who signs up for the free gift at


Cain’s return to his faith coincided with discovering love and healing through White, senior Pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando, who he married in April, 2015. Leading worship at his wife’s annual women’s conference, Cain found a new joy in his music. “I never heard him sing like this,” White says. “Something had shifted in him.”


After encouragement to record music reflecting this newfound joy, Cain asked, “What does God want to hear from me?” Soon afterwards, the songs began to pour out. “I’ve always been seeking out songs since I was young,” he shares. “I never had any idea how rich the Bible was with imagery. I got lost in it.”


Reminiscent of when he almost gave up on his musical dreams and his father uttered the now famous line “Don’t stop believing,” Cain now feels he’s just starting to believe again.


The full Jonathan Cain, What God Wants to Hear track listing follows:


01) “Deeper Than Deep”

02) “Bold In Prayer”

03) “Rush Into Me”

04) “Have Your Way With Us”

05) “In Your Waters”

06) “What God Wants To Hear”

07) “Sanctify Segue”

08) “Sanctify”

09) “Fall Into You”

10) “This House”

11) “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”

12) “Why I Breathe”

13) “Because The Blood”

In 1976 Jonathan Cain released his first solo record, Windy City Breakdown.
