NASHVILLE, Tenn. January 4, 2016 —Artist Garden Entertainment artist, The Gray Havens, end 2015 on a high note with top rankings on multiple industry Top 2015 album lists. The independent, Chicago-based husband/wife duo found their way into the hearts of top Christian media with Fire & Stone, produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning Mitch Dane (Brandon Heath, JJ Heller)
CCM Magazine’s Andy Argyrakis ranked The Gray Havens Fire & Stone #6 on his Top 10 Albums list for 2015 stating “this full-length debut is an enthralling and enlightening start to what’s sure to be a fruitful career.”
Fire and Stone ranked #6 on JesusFreakHideout’s Overall Staff Picks for 2015 making The Gray Havens the first independent artist to ever appear on the chart. In addition, the duo ranked #1 on several individual staff picks charts.
Christian music discovery site UnderTheRadar ranked the record #4 on their 2015 Top Gourmet Album Picks.
The husband/wife duo released a new song, At Last, The King, in December which became NewReleaseTuesday’s top downloaded Christmas song of 2015.

Have you ever heard a Christmas song begin with the story of the serpent in the Garden of Eden? Well, You’re about to! While many artists are busy releasing cover Christmas songs, The Gray Havens decided to take a new and fresh approach at writing and recording their new original Christmas song, At Last, The King. The new song, produced by Ryan Corn, is now available on iTunes. This song serves as a preview of what’s to come as The Gray Havens are busy working on their new Spring 2016 release. Below is a video of a live performance from The Gray Havens singing At Last, The King.
Frontman for one of Christian music’s all-time best live bands, Salvador, releases his first solo EP “My Life Is Yours” today through Lucid Artist. In typical Nic Gonzales fashion, you won’t see him attempting to grab headlines. Instead, he is quietly releasing his new collection of beautifully written songs with minimal self-promoted fanfare. Well sports fans, THE SECRET IS OUT!
This EP reminds me of the pure but powerful vocal presence that led Salvador to the top of Christian radio charts. Nic plays most of the instruments himself but is accompanied by Salvador producer/keyboardist, Chris Bevins. His brother, Art Gonzales, makes a guest drumming appearance and of course you will hear some BGVs from wife, Jaci Velasquez. Listeners will be drawn in by the vulnerability Nic expresses through his lyrics on the EP. “Good As Gold” is my favorite track as he sings about the joy of being a husband and father.

Most artists are content with one single release but when you are as talented as Ryan Corn, you need two!
Ryan Corn released two new digital singles this past week in an effort to have a radio presence in multiple genres simultaneously. His self-produced, Rising Up In Me, shows a more organic pop side, while his cover of Dido’s White Flag presents a chilled alternative pop offering. White Flag is Ryan’s first collaboration with producer Cason Cooley (Ingrid Michaelson, Ben Rector, Leagues, Katie Herzig) Both songs are equally amazing showing Ryan’s DNA transcends any genre labels.
Do yourself a favor and buy both! Rising Up in Me and White Flag can both be found on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music or wherever you gas up your digital devices.
Brace yourself for the debut of Noah Cleveland, the new big voice in Christian music! The album, Church With No Walls, produced by Ed Cash, Scott Cash, Nathan Nockles and Pete Stewart is loaded with songs that showcase Noah’s big voice. And when I say big voice, I mean BIG VOICE!
Noah tours the country bringing the super important message, of tearing down the walls. The anthem, Church With No Walls, co-written and produced with Passion City Church’s Nathan Nockles, shows his heart for healing the division present in today’s church.
The EP also includes songs co-written with a few of Christian music’s hit songwriters Tony Wood, Scott Cash and Pete Stewart.
