Aaron Michaels.jpg

What can be said of this guy?  A lot actually.  The man's heart for reaching the lost for the Kingdom is something to be witnessed.  A little example of his commitment to the King and to his ministry.  As a fellow biker, I know how important a motorcycle is to a biker. This man sold his Victory motorcycle to futher the Victory of the Kingdom.  If that's not a passion for Christ, then I need a new definition of passion.  Truly a man of God and Ministry this is an artist that you need to be engaged in.

2018 saw the release of this bands first album with Rockfest Records and it rocks!  These guys know how to bring it and will be in the regular rotation for quite sometime

behold the beloved.jpg

This 5 piece band out of Manheim PA is the epitome of a rock band with a purpose.  They have all of the right elements with superior vocals, and a sound that reminds the listener (us) that we really don't have much musical talent but in a really good way!  The name comes from Matthew 3:16-17 when Jesus was baptized.  They NEED to be in your regular rotation of music.  They are definitely in ours.

From their bio:

“We are not here for fame and fortune, we are only here to share the abilities God has given to us and share them with everyone to enjoy and to be encouraged”. “In trusting in God to take care of our needs to keep us moving forward”.

Oh boy... here comes the fanboy in me loud and proud!  This is not one of my favorite artists but also one of the people that I can't get enough of on his socials.  I the man got his doctorate in theology just so he could be called Dr. Flame, which is a killer name.  If you are not following this anointed man of God, you are doing the whole internet thing wrong!  He is a big-brain in theological terms that I personally have learned a ton.... and I'm not even Lutheran!  He is my theological sensei so if he tells me to "sweep the leg" of the enemy, I'm asking "how hard?"  A true Renaissance man.  Seriously, the dude even has a killer quote from Marin Luther on his website:  
“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”
Follow him.. NOW!

Grace Vent.jpg

I believe we were the one of the first stations to debut Grace Vent's new music and I guarantee we won't be the last!  Their ministry and lyrics are so powerful you will be moved!

holy name.jpg

Fronted by Tommy Green, former lead singer for Sleeping Giant,  Holy Name may be a "side project for him, but here's hoping and praying for a long run .  TG (we got a good vibe so I can call him that, HA)  is such a tremendous man of God and does so much for the Kingdom.  He is heavily involved in the fight against human trafficking and if you can't get behind that, well we will NEVER hang out together.

Jenna Parr.jpg

I freely admit I'm a little late to the Jenna Parr Bandwagon but I am glad there is room for more.  You will be hearing a lot more from her in the very near future.  Don't be too late to the party.  Her passion for God is overwhelming evident and comes through her music and fills you up

Jodi-Essex fearless 2.jpg

Coming at you from Chi-town is Jodi Essex, who is fast becoming one of our favorite artists on Radio13.FM.  Anyone who is "Fearless" to "Offend" (see her discography) has our vote for one that we will stand shoulder to shoulder with in the fight for The Kingdom.  Jodi's rock vibe is something that you will gravitate to and her vocals are something you wish you could put in your pocket and carry around... Oh wait, you can do that on all streaming services and wherever you buy your music, so I guess your covered.  To say that she has garnered a lion share of airtime could be a huge understatement!  While I don't get into the "they sound like....fill in the blank.." statements, I will say that much like Adelaide, Jodi has definitely expanded our musical pallette.... and that is a GREAT thing

Matt Sassano.jpg

Matt has quickly become one of our favorite artists.  His unique sound is difficult to drop into one particular genre with his mix of EDM and Rock.  Of course it doesn't hurt his cause by doing a collaboration with another one of our favorite artist, Zahna.

 His lyrics set him apart from most artists with gut wrenching honesty and passion.  Since becoming a solo act Matt has made such a tremendous impact on so many with his song Not My Name by calling out the stigma associated with rejection, bullying and name calling.  See this man for what he is, a true warrior for Christ that does not shy away from the tough issues.

Mawcore.jpg

According to their website Mawcore mission is to flood the world with hope driven fearless rock!  I couldn't agree more!  Mawcore  - which by the way sounds so cool in your head if you say it with a Monday Night Raw voice - taken from the Hebrew meaning Wellspring, will hit you in face with an unbelievable rock sound that will transport with a 90-ish sound and then throat punch you with faith driven lyrics.  This band has seen it's share of struggles and pain over the years but they just come back stronger and stronger.  Fighting for the King is their way of life!

oh%20sleeper_edited.jpg

They will not disappoint. The lyrics are so deep, the music is so tight, and their voices will hit you hard!  Whether it's the harmonies or the guttural screams, they'll get you! Love these guys

POD_edited_edited.jpg

What can you say about these guys?  Timeless? Incredible? Original? Unashamed?  Yes, all of that and a whole lot more.  Over the years it's possible that I have more listening hours to this band than any other band and I'm not done yet!

Poetic Descent.jpg

Alternative Metal?  Yes please! Buckeye State?  I don't think so.  The way these guys come at you with the aggressive guitar riffs, the pounding machine gun drums, the mix of harmonic and dirty vocals and the incredibly deep lyrics of Shallow Graves should be enough to get Ohio to rethink their nickname and rename it to the Descent State.  Besides, it would look better on their license plates.
Can't wait for more music to drop from this ridiculously talented band

Nate Parrish_edited.jpg

Nate Parrish has reignited my love for some good punk music.  I used to really dig on punk, well at least punk-core, but kind of fell out of it over the years.  Nate has brought not only the sound but the "punk" attitude to his music and to us as well.  Punk is not just a genre, but a mindset and Nate nails it!  Lyrically, Nate embodies the "question everything about society" and brings a refreshing point of view that the church of today so desperately needs.  Keep fighting The Man Nate, no matter where he is.  We got your back brother.  As a bonus... check out the flowing locks!! As a foliclly challenged individual, I say to you... "well done sir, oh yes, well done indeed".

Rusty Shipp.jpg

Not only a great band name, but the dude's name is Russ T Shipp!  This Nashville based band touts itself as a "nautical rock-n-roll band".  Full disclosure, I had no idea that Nashville was a port city but hey, a geography major I am not.  Their blend of hard rock tones mixed with a surf rock feel, well, it just feels right.  We absolutely LOVE their heart for the Kingdom and the message they throw out there.  If you want to take a pleasure cruise, then all aboard and ahoy Mate.  You will dig this!

the midnight wedding_edited.jpg

The Midnight Wedding has such a great sound that I can't get enough of it.  They continually come up with such killer tracks.  I love following their socials because they always put out such positive Kingdom minded messages it makes the hardest heart a reason to show some compassion.  Not just a great rock band, but a great rock band with a purpose.  Once you hear the vocals, you will be hooked!
