Don’t overlook the “Stories” of Addison Road

phil : July 15, 2010 11:21 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil

Radio Friend Phil – With so many good new releases available now, it would be way too easy to overlook “Stories,”  the new sophomore project from Addison Road.

Released on June 22, “Stories” is comprised of 10-tracks, including the first radio single, “Fight Another Day.”  The band,  led by lead singer Jenny Simmons, is celebrating more than just the release of the new disc; guitarist Ryan Gregg and his wife recently welcomed their new daughter, Lila Kate, on May 31.

To read more about the band’s summer tour and more, click here http://www.myspace.com/addisonroad  and listen to WJTL weeknight’s at 9 p.m. for more tracks off the new CD on New Tunes at 9.

Beckah Shae wants to share her “Life”

phil : June 10, 2010 8:23 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil

Radio Friend Phil – Let me get right to the point: I love the voice of Beckah Shae!  It would be way too easy to categorize her as simply another neo-soul singer; to me, when I  hear her voice, I sense  the joy and excitement she feels for Jesus Christ!

Beckah has a strong testimony to share, too. Her parents were divorced when she was three, resulting in her moving into friends and family members homes,  staying in cars, hotels and shelters for battered women. You can read her story here: http://www.myspace.com/beckahshae 

Beckah Shae’s new project is called “Life” and it includes the  new single, “Here in This Moment,” a song that is becoming very popular on the WJTL Request Show and New Tunes at 9.  And before I forget, Beckah is also the guest vocalist on “Funky Jesus Music,” by TobyMac, off his latest project, “Tonight.” Her voice is amazing!

MercyMe continues to spread the message of “The Generous Mr. Lovewell”

phil : May 28, 2010 7:03 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil

Radio Friend Phil – A few weeks ago, I wrote about a special campaign spearheaded by the band MercyMe, designed to challenge listeners to display the generous love of Christ.

Today, I came across a touching story that directly relates to MercyMe’s “Lovewell” campaign.  As it tuns out, while the band was in Las Vegas recently, they ended up helping an out-of-work lady get her car repaired. You can read the entire story by clicking here: http://edition.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/Music/05/27/ost.mercyme.mrlovewell/
