Scoop ~ Interview With Country Music Band, True Heart Music

True Heart Music band, made up of Joe Kantz, Scott Bordner, and Scott’s daughter, Jocelyn, is a group true to their name. This is shown with their heart and in the lyrics of their songs, which carry simple messages that we find in Scripture, but with deep meanings that travel and settle in the depths of the soul. Their new project, One Simple Message (read the TBAP review here), exemplifies this perfectly. Speaking a bit of their journey and their music, True Heart took the time to answer some questions on TBAP. Take a look! Miranda ~ Hello! So good to have you on TBAP! Please tell us a bit about True Heart Music. Also, how did you choose the name for your group? Scott: We describe our musical style as Christian Country.

Album Review ~ DREAM Christmas Vol. 4 By Various Artists

Category Religious/Christian Genre Holiday/Christmas Release Date November 1, 2019 Rating 4 Stars Review In this fabulous come-together by DREAM’s artists to celebrate and usher in the Christmas spirit, though ultra modern, the songs do a fine job of remaining true to the authentic message of Christmas—ultimately, that Jesus came, Jesus saves, and God is with us. It’s not every version of the classics that endears, but Switch’s Joy opens the volume beautifully, setting the tone for the entire album. The songs that follow, like Joy, prepared with a twist of urban and pop, produce a fresh taste that won’t easily be forgotten. DREAM’S Vol. 4 is an album whose repertoire can span multiple Christmas events—a party, church service, personal worship, etc.—and deeply satisfy. *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that  A ‘thank you’ to DREAM Label Group and Lance Brown, DREAM GM, for a free copy in exchange for an honest opinion.  About DREAM Christmas Vol. 4 From the bottom of our hearts we wanted to say …

Rating 4 Stars Review Who You Are opens with Bright, an anthem of faith and hope for a future that’s in God’s loving and powerful hands.

Album Review ~ United By Newsboys

Category Religious/Gospel Genre Pop/Rock Rating 5 Stars Review The album opens with the song, Greatness Of Our God, a song that joyfully shouts of God’s power and awesomeness, and the joy of having it all within and about us in full display and glory. The combined force of Michael Tait and Peter Furler, the two frontmen, (coupled with features of Kevin Max and Doug Weier) is a dream come true for every longstanding Newsboys fan. The unity in song and heart paves a way for love that inspires on many fronts—worship, brotherhood, and life in general; a love that says that unity on any level inspired by the Light of God and blessed by Him in worship of Him, is possible. This power-packed album is full of mesmerizing melody and lyrics—definitely shoulder-rolling, head-nodding, and feet-tapping, while being transported in soul and spirit to kneel before God’s Awesomeness in absolute surrender of tremendous joy that can only come from the deepest communion and fellowship from a genuine place of worship, manifested by shouts of praise, jumps …
