Female artist Christy Nockels excels on her latest album, “Life Light Up.”  Christy started as most Christian artists today, singing for her local church as a worship leader.  From there, she wrote songs with her husband, who was also a Christian artist.  The two released an album together under the name Watermark and were signed by record label, Rocketown Records.  The pair went on to produce great music together and were nominated for a plethora of Dove awards.  After five albums, Christy decided it was time to go home and spend more time with her kids and local church.  Now, Christy is back as a solo artist, signed by sixstepsrecords.

From an early age, Rita Springer was pouring her heart out to God in song—whether she could express herself to others or not.  Rita Springer takes the rough edges of an independent, alternative praise and worship sound, and mixes it with the Godly undertones of a soulful songstress.  With simple tracks like “All I need,” and “Worth it All,” less truly is more—choosing to let the repeated phrases speak for themselves rather than complicate the songs with anything extra.

Clark and Salina Beasley are not only husband and wife, but also the driving force behind Surveil.  From leading worship at churches to touring with Matt Redman, these two have had unbelievable opportunities to grow as artists and use their gifts to glorify God throughout the world.  Last year marked a major turn in their career with the release of their debut album, The World is Watching.  The songs are all originals with the exception of their own rendition of Prayer of St. Francis.  Their lyrics are unique and imaginative.  Surveil has the ability to capture the raw emotion of worship that transcends to the deeper meaning of the act.

When you think of a riddle, your mind may conjure images of puzzles, ancient prophecy, or something that is just hard to guess or figure out.  Jeremy Riddle, however, is anything but hard to figure out.  Worship leader, a pastor, committed husband, and father, Jeremy’s answers to the puzzling questions in life all come from the simplicity of trusting in God.  This is evident in his music.  With “Bless His Name,” “To Be Like You,” and “Christ is Risen”, Jeremy's faith, and pastoral learnedness add depth and other dimensions to his music.
