NEW TUNES AT 9 ROUNDUP: THE CHOIR

phil : November 8, 2012 7:11 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. New projects available this week: “Miracle” by Third Day and “For The Glory,” from the O.C. Supertones. Another project that I highly recommend is “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard,” by the Choir. “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard” is another sonic masterpiece! The project is full of lyrical poetry, imagery, the Choir’s impeccable sense of time and space, and the their signature ambient soundscapes (or “sheets of sound”). The band, led by singer/guitarist Derri Daugherty, and lyricist/percussionist Steve Hindalong, continue to create musical art on their own terms, often aided and shaped by Dan Michaels, a musician who plays the lyricon, an instrument he calls, “a wind-controlled, midi-saxophone.”  For more on the Choir, go to http://thechoir.net/ You can preview “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard” at the band’s iTunes store, sign up for band updates and check out special music packages, which currently includes a free 9-song compilation download (and the new single, “Shadow of the Cross”).

NEW TUNES AT 9 ROUNDUP: MIKESCHAIR

phil : October 18, 2012 5:58 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. Available this week is “The Way We Worship,” by FFH, featuring their new song, “As For Me.” Last Sunday, WJTL presented another Live From the Junction Center event, featuring Matthew West and Mikeschair. Mikeschair vocalist and guitarist Mike Grayson joined band mate Kyle Schonewill for 2 acoustic songs, “You Loved Me First” and “Someone Worth Dying For.” Both tracks are available on Mikeschair’s latest project “A Beautiful Life.” Mikeschair was formed at Belmont University, in Nashville, TN. To date, they’ve released 3 EP’s and 2 full-length projects–all are highly recommended! In addition to making music, Mikeschair are highly involved in charitable activities. In conjunction with Food For The Hungry, Mikeschair formed a food collection charity called “Mikestable.” The inspiration came when they noticed hungry people gathering at a food pantry at a church near their apartment. With that in mind, the band continues to invite their fans to bring nonperishable food items to select shows.  Mike Grayson says that with the new project, “A Beautiful Life,” “We wanted this record to take a very hopeful approach. God is weaving together a beautiful life whether we can see it or not.”  For more on Mikeschair, go to http://www.mikeschair.com/
