Artist Scoop ~ Interview with Music Artist Andy Garcia

With a heart clearly sold out for God, music artist, Andy Garcia, sings with such passion, it’s contagious. He released his debut album, Forever We Sing, July 14th (read the TBAP review here), and the music was as fresh as it was impressive. With the profound belief that his life is nothing short of God’s miracle, Andy, in turn, has developed a love for people that runs deep and will sing to an audience of one or a million. Andy took some time to tell us a bit about himself, sharing a testimony about his life that is both moving and inspiring. Follow our conversation!


Miranda ~ Hello Andy! Happy to have you here on TBAP today. Could you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Andy: Well, let’s see.  I want to do crazy things.  I love people.  I love to laugh, and I love to travel the world!  I grew up in Dallas, TX, as a kid with a large extended family.  I lived in a bad area of town, and with my mom and grandparents.  My alcoholic father left when I was a baby and never returned.  At a young age I was presented with many bad options including drugs and gangs.  As a child and teenager without a father and living in poverty, I was searching for anything to give me identity. I know my mother’s prayers and example are what kept my head above water and put me in places where I would grow and experience Jesus.  Her and my grandfather kept me in church and paid a high price to take me to church events.  I also had a youth pastor who came in and loved me as I was.  He would actually hug me like a father and pour value into me. Through him, I gave my life back to Jesus and began to help with the church as much as I could.  I always had a great love for music, but this was beyond just a normal love of music; it was a calling.  And, out of a small prayer meeting that I, with three friends, had every Thursday night, God began to show up in such an amazing way.  Now I have a passion for worship, and for His presence.  Once you experience His presence, you are forever changed.

I travel around the US doing music and helping churches build great worship teams.  I have an amazing wife and two sons who have blessed my life.  They want to do crazy things too and carry the same vision.  My passion is to see people’s lives changed through music.  I want to see stadiums filled with people worshipping, and God just shows up and changes a city.

Miranda ~ What particularly led you into a personal relationship with Jesus? Also, in what way can you say your painful past has led you to become the better person that you are now?

Andy: As a child and teenager without a father and living in poverty, I was searching for anything to give me identity.  I had an option to be in a gang, but I had a close friend who was shot by gangsters, and so I didn’t want to go down that road.   I know my mother’s prayers and example are what kept my head above water and put me in places where I would grow and experience Jesus.  She and my grandfather kept me in church and paid a high price to take me to youth events.  I also had a youth pastor who came in and loved me as I was.  He would actually hug me like a father and pour value into me.  He saw something in me of purpose and would put me in leadership positions.  Through him, I gave my life back to Jesus and began to help with the church as much as I could.  My life experiences have given me such a deep love for people, their struggles, and have put in me a passion to help them to succeed in life.  My goal each day is to help people see who God has called them to be and enable them to take steps to fulfill what they are called to do.  I know I would not be who I am today if it were not for the few people who saw something great in me, and chose to selflessly give to see me succeed.

Miranda ~ Who would you say you sing for—the broken hearted, lost etc.? Why do you believe you’ve been called to this particular group of people?

Andy: I have a huge heart to see people rise above the circumstances of life and the boxes that they are in because of what I experienced in my life.  My heart is to see people experience God and know His presence.  I want people to see that if I can do something with my life, then anyone can.  I was supposed to be a statistic—a failure—but God saw different.  Throughout the Bible, God chose the nobodies, the failures, and the people less likely to succeed.  So, if those are who He chose to bring Him glory, then anyone can make something of their life.

We are not called to live this life for ourselves, but to make Him known to a hurting world.  So, my answer to the question of who I sing for is my Father in heaven.  If I choose to sing for Him, then my heart will be right, and His presence will show up and impact people.

Miranda ~ What inspired your song, Forever We Sing and, why did you title your album with this song?

Andy: I am honored to feature the song, Forever We Sing, which my son, Sam, wrote with me, along with my wife, my son, Moses, and my producers.  We wrote this song late one night as God was stirring in him a heart for music. As a family, our heart has been to write songs that describe God and bring Him praise.  So, this song has special memories for me.  It has also been a theme of what God continues to tell us—to magnify Him above all else, and to forever sing of His greatness.  I was also privileged to finish this song with my producers—some very talented guys—which I also call my friends.  They made the song amazing.  They put so much heart into it as well.

Miranda ~ Your songs are sung so passionately! What principle guides your choice of lyrics as you write songs?

Andy: When we choose songs or write songs, we want lyrics that will paint a picture of who God is to people.  We want songs that will move them and stir their hearts.  We want songs that will heal their hearts, and make them dance as well.  We are not looking for just a cool song; we want it to change people’s life.

Miranda ~ How would you describe your journey in the Christian music industry? How has your journey drawn you closer to God and made you a better person?

Andy: I have been doing music and working with artists for a while. One thing I have decided is that anyone can make it big, but not everyone can make a God-impact on people.  I don’t want to be another great singer or performer; I want to leave a legacy.  But, that takes much effort, prayer, and strategic purpose to see that happen.  I love the music industry, and have, since I was a young child.  I have always had a heart to be part of it.  I just know that God has called us to do better than the world with our skill, creativity, and influence, and that is my goal.

Miranda ~ Who are the people that have inspired you the most in life and in music, and, in what way have they done so?

Andy: Growing up, I was influenced by many people.  I had an amazing mom, grandfather, uncle, and family.  I had a wonderful youth pastor and good friends.  I loved watching TD Jakes and other pastors on TV.  For music, I was influenced by Fred Hammond, gospel music, Kent Henry, Hillsong, Lindell Cooley, Jason Upton and Matt Redman.  I was also influenced by people like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Keith Urban and other very talented artists.  I appreciate music and talent.  So, I have a very diverse influence, but all of them had so much passion for Jesus.  I must say that, this is my goal, no matter what style I may be playing.

Miranda ~ What moment in your life (apart from when you gave your life to Christ) can you say changed your life forever?

Andy: When I was younger and in youth, I and some friends would have a prayer meeting every Thursday night.  When we started having the meetings, I was dealing with depression, heaviness of heart, and suicide thoughts because of the things going on in my life.  During these prayer times, God was so real to me.  I would feel His presence and hear His voice speaking value and purpose to me.  He healed my heart during this time.  His presence can accomplish way more in a short time than years of counseling can do.

Miranda ~ What are most grateful for—generally/right now?

Andy: I am most grateful for all that God has done in my life. I could have been a statistic or a lost human being, but God came in and rescued me.  I am thankful for all the opportunities I continue to have each day, and the doors He has opened for me.  I am thankful for my wife and two sons who support me like crazy, and do everything they can to be a team and help out.  I am thankful for some amazing friends and extended family that, also, are so loving and faithful to me.  It makes life worth doing.  God has been so good to me.

Miranda ~ What advice would you give to an artist who believes that they are called by God and are just starting their journey into the music industry?

Andy: Well, ha-ha, I would say get prepared to do a lot of work!  The music industry is not for the faint of heart.  To be in this industry takes a person who is not just creative and can perform good, but it takes a person of character, integrity and discipline.  I would also say to make sure God has called you here, and that you are not just here because everyone says you sing good or that you should perform professionally.  You must be called to be here or you will end up frustrated.  There will always be someone who is better than you and more talented, but you have to know your purpose for being here.  You have to know God’s heart for each day, and why you are to do what you do.  When you have God’s heart and vision before you, then you will be able to get through hard times and difficult people.  I have worked with music artists for years and know that pride and selfishness will only turn people away from God, and not make you look like a superstar.  So, stay humble no matter how big you make it, and continue to pour into the lives of those around you.  It’s all about Him!

About Andy Garcia


Andy Garcia grew up just outside of Dallas, Texas, in a small town called Oak Cliff.  As a baby, his dad left him and his mom never to return again.  By God’s design, Andy’s uncle took him under his wing as a father to the fatherless.  Here is where Andy gained his heart for music since his uncle traveled with a Gospel band all over the US.  As a little boy and teenager, Andy experienced much sorrow and pain, but a praying mom, a selfless youth pastor, and the Gospel music carried him through this time. His chance came one night when his cousin happened to hear him singing in the car and knew the youth group needed a new worship leader.  Andy, not believing he could sing, and being told he would not succeed in life, decided to take a step and began to sing and play the guitar.  From there, he never stopped singing and playing for God.  He has led worship all over the US, and has mentored many others to do the same.  He loves people like no other and will lead worship for 1 or 1 million.  From worship leading, to events, to training up leaders, his heart is to see people moved and blessed through God-filled music. His vision for this world is just as big as his heart—to see people touched—and his passion will never let him quit.  He speaks the Father’s heart like no other because he has lived it out.  He lives and loves to worship his God.

Artist Scoop ~ Interview with the Rock Worship

The Rock Worship released the God Will Reign album this July 7th (read the TBAP review here), with instrumentation as powerful and excellent as the songs were wonderfully joyful! The group first launched in the year 2000 in Anaheim, California with the passion and vision to disciple Orange County for Jesus. The Rock Worship took some time to talk with TBAP, granting us a little insight about the group. Follow our conversation and learn more about them!


Miranda ~ Hello! Happy to have you here on TBAP today. Could you please tell us a bit about The Rock Worship?

RW: Hi, it’s great to connect with you today!  The Rock Worship is a community of worshipers that gather weekly at our home church, The Rock, in Anaheim, CA.  Our team is made up of many singers, musicians, writers, artists, and technicians that have a common goal, which is to connect with God in a fresh way, and to help many others connect with Him wherever they are.

Miranda ~ What inspired the God Will Reign Album and its title?

RW: It seems like this is said often, but over the last few years our world has seen a lot of change.  There is major tension politically, economically, socially, with religion, and on and on…our world needs Jesus!  This album is a declaration of praise to God.  Our cry is that He will one day rule the earth, and His love will be known to all. The songs on this album were written from the hearts of our church calling out to God and praying for our world.

Miranda ~ Who would you say you sing for—the broken hearted, lost etc.? Why do you believe you’ve been called to this particular group of people?

RW: I don’t know that we would say we necessarily sing for a specific group of people.  We hope that regardless of status in life or background, everyone hearing these songs would be encouraged, inspired, and reminded that God is real, that He loves them, and that living a life with and for Him is worth it no matter the cost, and no matter the situation they may be in.  And, hopefully, that ultimately, these songs would become their songs, too.

Miranda ~ What would you say is ultimately the core message of Rock Worship’s music?

RW: I think the core message of our music is that God is love, faithful, strong, forgiving…really everything that we need and more.  Once you connect with God (get in His presence) and know Him, you realize just how much His heart truly beats for you.  That will change your life forever!

Miranda ~ What principles guide the choice of lyrics for the songs that the Rock Worship writes/sings?

RW: I think a few principles we stick to are:

1) Our lyrics have to line up to the bible.

2) They have to be genuinely from our hearts.

3) “Singable” for others.

4) Creative.

5) They point people to God.

There are more, but these for sure, are some of them.

Review


I Look To You by Manny Benton is a prayer and a word of encouragement that is deeply personal, yet inspiring. It is an expression of worship to God from a heart profoundly sincere and motivated by God’s goodness and faithfulness.

Though, softly sung, the strength and depth of the lyrics, the unmistakable passion in Benton’s voice, combined with the soothingly powerful instrumentals, carry the full power of a song uniquely equipped to both glorify God and edify the listener, as well as soulfully entertain, as the case may be.

I Look To You, another wonderful production by Sean Hill (read Hill’s interview with TBAP here), is due for release this July 28th.

 

Manny’s Story


New pop/worship artist, Manny Benton, is set to release his debut single, I Look To You, July 28 with pre-orders starting July 17. The single will be released under Benton’s independent label, Noisemakers Music Group, LLC.
Benton spent several days studying the book of Hebrews, which helped birth the song.
“It was a week where I just felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders,” says Benton. “I literally opened my Bible asking God to reveal a word to me through Scripture and I was led to read Hebrews. It’s a familiar book, but what really struck me is how chapters 11-13 have this build-up from explaining what faith is, to teaching us how we ought to fix our eyes on Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith.”


It was in Hebrews where Benton discovered a verse that would later become the foundation of his debut single.
“Hebrews 13:14 tells us that here, we have no enduring city, but we seek one yet to come,” he added. “This simple verse really just set a fire in me because when you read it in context with the previous chapters, it’s simply telling you to fix your eyes on Christ for that’s where your hope is found. This hope is the only absolute we have. So we ought to look to Him!”
Benton, 24, grew up in Fort Washington, MD, where he was a three-sport athlete as a child: soccer, baseball and football. At the age of 17, Benton started his own football blog that would later aid him in landing professional gigs writing about the Washington Redskins football team.
As a guy who grew up a huge fan of the Redskins, having an opportunity to cover the team was a dream come true,” Benton confesses. “It’s my passion, but I came to learn that the Lord wanted more from me.”


Coming from a family full of ministers, including his grandfather, Rev. Dr. Harrison E. Benton Jr., who pastored for 18 years, Manny Benton grew up in church. Although he started learning piano when he was four, Benton did not really become active in the music department at his grandfather’s church until his mid-teens.
“I was a bit of a rebel when it came to music,” he cracks. “I enjoyed taking piano classes, but I didn’t enjoy having to read sheet music. That was extremely boring to me!”


It wasn’t until his mother, Crystal, took him to a Jazz music festival around the age of 11 that he would begin to develop a strong passion for music.
“I had an opportunity to see this Jazz pianist, Brian Culbertson, live, and it just changed my entire perspective on music. It was fun and creative.”


After discovering this new passion for music, Benton decided to give the piano a try again and realized he could play by ear. As he became more proficient at playing the instrument, he gradually discovered that he could hold a tune vocally.
“I would blast music from my living room stereo when my mom was out of the house and I’d record myself singing to it,” he recalls. “It was always Christian artists like Ron Kenoly, Jr. or the Kenoly Brothers that I would sing to. Looking back on it, that’s really how I trained my voice.”


With those voice recordings, Benton would timidly share them with his mother.
“She’s a straight shooter, but I thought it sounded okay and wanted to get her feedback,” he remembers. “That turned out to be a good and a bad thing. It was a good thing because she confirmed that I could sing, but it was bad because she would then force me to sing. Not only that, but she broke the news to my middle school music teacher who in turn had me join the choir, and I’m not a fan of singing in choirs.”
Benton would later play the trumpet in his middle school band and the snare drum in high school.


It wasn’t until he was around the age of 16 that he decided to sing in church at an open mic service. During that period, Benton had discovered that he could write songs and decided to perform an original at the service.
“Most of the people who watched me grow up in the church never heard me sing,” he says. “It was kind of nerve wrecking to do an original while letting people hear me sing for the first time.”
The song, Walking on Water, was a hit within his church community and was the beginning of his musical ministry.


Benton would go on to lead the praise team at his grandfather’s church, singing mostly songs that he wrote.
“We sang a lot of hymns at my church, so that was the sound I was used to,” Benton says. “Although, I didn’t like playing hymns on the piano, I liked the emphasis placed on the lyrical content. So, I began to discover my sound and focus more on writing. When I did play an artist’s song it was always Israel Houghton or Chris Tomlin’s music.”


Becoming a musician was never Benton’s goal, but he couldn’t deny the gift of writing worship songs.
“I went through a phase of discovering worship as something I liked doing to it now becoming the very fabric of who I am,” he says.

The new radio single, I Look To You, was produced by Sean Hill (Jamie Grace, Brad Guldemond) and it reflects Benton’s primary goal as an artist – helping point people to Christ.

I Am Joseph

Some dreams that God lay on one’s heart may initially appear too daunting and impossible, even to the dreamer who seemingly wants it the most. The road that leads to such a dream becoming a reality appears unmade. Clearly, such a feat will require a miracle from God’s hand, as nothing else will suffice.

It is not uncommon to find many Christians, if they choose to admit, who in their secret place, struggle with believing a Word or promise given to them by God. In Joseph’s case, Joseph didn’t appear to have a problem accepting God’s promise, but one would wonder if he often doubted it as he many troubles began—troubles which God used to refine and prepare him for the greatness that was ahead. And, it wasn’t until after the fullness of time that God plucked him out of Pharaoh’s prison and installed him as governor over Egypt with such power that was second only to Pharaoh’s.

Like Joseph, you may have received a specific word or promise from God, and even accepted it with a heart full of faith. But as God takes you through the rigors of life to prepare, discipline and strengthen you for what is to come, don’t, in the dark times, forget what God told you in the day. Trust that the impossible, as your case may be, is possible with God on your side; He’ll make a way where there ordinarily isn’t any. As you wait for the fulfillment of His promise in your life, remember that God doesn’t want you to hold your breath. Continue to live life gratefully and to the fullest, making sure to always do what is right in front for you.

Artist Scoop ~ Interview with Kenan Stephenson, Creative Director & Songwriter for Equippers Revolution

Equippers Revolution released the Hands High album this July 14th (read the TBAP review here), which was pleasantly pop with a healthy persuasion that could lead a listener into worship mode. The young, bright, and hopeful Equippers are from Auckland, New Zealand, and their Creative Director and songwriter, Kenan Stephenson, took some time to talk to TBAP on behalf of the group. Follow our conversation and learn more about them!


Miranda ~ Hello! Happy to have you here on TBAP today. Could you please tell us a bit about Equippers Revolution?

Kenan: Thanks very much for having us, we’re glad to be talking with you. Equippers Revolution is the sound of our youth movement here at Equippers Church. We’re a creative collective made up of youth leaders and high school students, from Auckland, New Zealand.

Miranda ~ What events led Equippers to become professional music artist?

Kenan: We made an album a few years ago, and somehow that music spread further than we thought. We started out just making music that would encourage our own youth, and so the fact that other people connect with the music is really cool for us.

Miranda ~ Who would you say you sing for—the broken hearted, lost etc.? Why do you believe you’ve been called to this particular group of people?

Kenan: We just make music to help and encourage the young people we do life with here in our youth movement. We write for a specific group of people, and it’s really awesome that the music is relatable to others outside of our immediate world. I guess that’s the power of music, and we’re very honoured that our music helps people connect to God.

Miranda ~ The album you recently released with Dream Label is titled Hands High. Why so?

Kenan: Hands High Is all about making statements of faith. Throwing your hands in the air is a universal sign for making a statement, and we liked that we do that for God, in acts surrender, and, so, that’s why the album is called Hands High. It’s a bold declaration of faith, and has helped us in our walk with God.

Miranda ~ What does Equippers Revolution hope to offer the world and the Body of Christ through music?

Kenan: We just want to stay true to ourselves, and to keep making music that encourages the young people we do life with. Anything other than that, is an amazing honour. We’re just a young crew from the end of the world (New Zealand) that love God, and love to use our gifts to lift Him up, and help people connect with Him.

 

About Equippers Revolution

Album Review ~ Upside Down By Long Hollow WAVE

Review


Long Hollow WAVE’s Upside Down opens with the amazing and catchy You Are My Revival, ushering a mode of praise with danceable tunes that inspire feet tapping, head nodding, and hand clapping. The lyrics of Upside down, clearly, are lovingly put together to tell a love story between God and the person who loves Jesus (as witnessed in song #3, The Name, and others).

Upside Down breathes joy and worship for God while fearlessly declaring God’s love and faithfulness.

Interestingly, this album displays a sumptuous blend of contemporary praise, worship, classic pop and R&B (of which, songs of the latter two groups appear to be something straight out of a pure deluxe album), a unique flavor that is altogether quintessentially fresh and refreshing! There’s a soulfulness to the R&B that rings deep and true so that they sincerely present as the love songs truly intended to bless God’s heart.

 

About Long Hollow WAVE


Long Hollow WAVE is a worship band and ministry based out of Long Hollow Baptist Church outside of Nashville, TN. They lead students every week in worship as well as travel around the country leading at student events to draw people closer to Jesus through music. They have a massive passion for writing songs for the local and global church.

The Upside Down album by Long Hollow WAVE includes seven songs recorded live at Long Hollow student camp and three studio tracks. This album consists of high energy songs/anthems for churches to lift up.

God Doesn’t Want You To Hold Your Breath

When you make a request to God, as you wait for an answer or the manifestation of the answer that you’ve received, there’s the tendency to want to put life on hold as you plan the rest of your “living” around this answer that you’re waiting for “to happen.” Many times, this approach leads to much disappointment, and makes the child of God raise questions that s/he ordinarily wouldn’t.

It’s important to come to know God as a person, as you would anyone else. In my experience, it is in God’s nature to:

  1. Grant a request, but not always, specifically, within the time frame that you want, but rather, in the fullness of time as His wisdom sees fit. Within this period, certain events that He has set to happen, will. Only then will His finished work be revealed.
  2. Grant a request, but not necessarily have it come to you in the manner that you hoped or expected. Rather, His answer will manifest in a fashion tailored to suit the good work He is doing in you, fine-tuning and leading you to become the person that He’s called you to be.

In the end, the waiting period, most times, as most Christians would confess, turn out to be much longer than one expected, and during this period, there are usually good lessons to glean. You learn perseverance, which will finish God’s good work in you (James 1:4), leading to a harvest of peace, righteousness, and other blessings (Hebrews 12:11). You learn that your life moving forward truly doesn’t hang upon the manifestation of that requested desire, but instead, upon God holding you, and more importantly, upon His Word. You learn that God is control. And, eventually, when you’ve received the blessing, you’re able do so with a grateful heart and with an attitude different than the one you had when you initially sought Him for that particular blessing.

Also, within this period, as you wait, know that God wants you to live—truly live and enjoy living, slowing down to pay attention to the little details of life that once seemed unimportant. God doesn’t want you to hold your breath and put life on hold while you await His answer. He wants you to experience life with the full joy that emanates from His goodness and faithfulness, and to do so with much humility and gratitude. He wants you to see life through His eyes and His heart. So don’t hold your breath because, God doesn’t want you to. Be convinced rather, that in the fullness of time you’ll receive God’s blessing, and not before. It would be a gross mistake to let life pass you by while you wait on God.
