New Tunes at 9 Roundup

phil : March 8, 2012 8:39 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

Radio Friend Phil – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup: New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.   This week on New Tunes at 9, we featured new projects from Todd Agnew, Andy Cherry and Kutless. Kutless released “Believer” last week, their seventh full-length project on BEC Recodings. Believer follows their 2009 release, “It Is Well,” and continues to prove upon the band’s current mixture of hard-rock and worship music. (And this just in—”Believer” debuted this week at No. 36 on the Billboard 200.) The name Kutless was inspired by biblical scripture: Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Because of this verse, the band says, He took our cuts for us…leaving us ‘Kutless.’ To connect with Kutless on Facebook and twitter, access their iTunes store, you-tube page and more, go to http://www.kutless.com/

Radio Friend Phil – It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup: New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.  This week on New Tunes at 9, we’ve been featuring new projects from Kutless, Samestate, For King and Country and Sixteen Cities. On last week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup, I mentioned that Sixteen Cities, the 5-piece band from Portland Oregon, had stopped by the Junction Center to perform a 3-song mini-concert and talk about their new project, “Love Is Making A Way.” I was so impressed by this young band that I wanted  to share with you a little more of what lead singer Josiah Warneking had to say regarding the band’s vision for youth ministry. Click here http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/ to listen to the conversation and 3-song mini-concert with Sixteen Cities.

Radio Friend Phil  – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup: New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.  This week on New Tunes at 9, we featured new music from, among others, Thousand Foot Krutch, Aaron Shust, Samestate and Jaci Velasquez, whose new project, “Diamond,” released on Tuesday. Also this week, I continued to play various tracks off Kari Jobe’s new project, “Where I Find You.” Incidentally, “Where I Find You” debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200, and follows her 2008, self-titled debut. Kari says, “After singing about the importance of making time for intimate worship on my first album, I wanted to take the next step on ‘Where I Find You.’ These songs come from such an honest place of praising God for what He’s done—and what He’s continuing to do in our lives—because of his grace and goodness.” For more on Kari Jobe, go to http://karijobe.com/#!/ss:facebook You can connect with her on facebook and twitter, download her music and watch Kari perform an acoustic version of, “We Are,” a song Kari says is, “a song of commission for us as believers; to impact people’s lives in everything we do.”
