From Harvard’s hallowed halls to the bustling Downtown Crossing, Boston is a study in contrasts.  A worldwide cultural, financial and medical hub, few American cities also claim such a storied past.  In the cradle of a nation founded on faith, the concept of a megachurch is foreign to most New Englanders, while arenas filled to capacity for Christian concerts are few and far between.

But God isn’t dead in Boston.  The Andy Needham Band knows firsthand.

“If you choose to define revival or spiritual awakening as Fenway Park packed to hear Francis Chan speak and David Crowder lead worship, you will be easily disappointed,” says Andy Needham, namesake of the popular New England-based worship outfit.  “But when you get to see God’s work in our region the way we have—town-by-town, church-by-church—you get to see an amazing and powerful work of God.” Click here for more.

Jaime Jamgochian

Sitting down to talk with worship artist Jaime Jamgochian you quickly realize she is a woman of faith who God is using in many different ways through her music and message. It’s immediately evident she has a passion to see people know how much God loves them and a desire to see that reality change their lives—because it has changed hers. 

 For Jamgochian, delving into the pages of the lives of teen girls and calling out their true purpose and identity is one of her life’s ambition. Inspiration for her passion came in the unlikeliest of places—three words handwritten on the cover of a young fan’s journal: Modest Is Hottest. Jaime immediately knew this was one catchphrase she could stand behind. Click here for more.

For more than twenty years now, Andrew Peterson has been about the business of quietly changing lives in four-minute increments. In the city of Nashville where music is an industry in the same way fast food, generic greeting cards, and bumper stickers are industries, Peterson has forged his own path, refusing the artistic compromises that so often come with chasing album sales and radio singles and creating instead a long line of songs that ache with sorrow, joy and integrity, and that are, at the end of the day, part of a real, ongoing, human conversation.

The Centricity Music release of Peterson’s twenty-song retrospective, After All These Years: A Collection, brings into focus the ongoing legacy of an artist who has never tried to imitate the last big thing or to create the next big thing. The collection shows that Andrew Peterson has all along been playing a longer game for bigger stakes. His theology of artmaking has always been one that focuses on long-term faithfulness to gifts and calling, rather than on an immediate concern for the appearance of success—but the ironic result of that approach is an emerging body of songs that will likely still be relevant and appreciated in a hundred years.

Andy Gullahorn

Some people were born to be on stage. Some people were made to have their name in lights. Some people were born incredibly attractive. Some people can't help but be rock stars. Some people read. Andy is not any of those people.

Ok - I am sick of pretending like I hired someone else to write about me. I am way too cheap and disorganized for that. I am writing about myself so I will no longer talk about myself in the third person. Click here for more.

 

Jill Phillips

Jill Phillips is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter who got her start in the business after graduating from Belmont University in 1998. Her guitar based folk-rock sound combines with rich, insightful lyrics that deal with age-old topics in new and fresh ways. Her self-titled debut album on Word Records was produced by grammy-award winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick (“Change Your World” recorded by Eric Clapton) also known for producing such artists as Amy Grant, Garth Brooks and Susan Ashton.

After touring extensively with Caedmon’s Call and Bebo Norman, Phillips decided to step out and record her next album independently. Produced with Matt Stanfield (Plumb) and Andy Gullahorn, God and Money received critical acclaim and helped Phillips to be named CCM magazine’s reader’s choice for Independent Artist of the Year in 2002.
