New Worship Collections and Audio Adrenaline 3.0
Integrity Music has announced a new offering called WorshipMob, a collective of worship leaders from Colorado Springs. Founded by Sean Mulholland and Garrett Chynoweth, the “Mob” began four years ago as a weekly gathering between two local worship teams. Mulholland had formerly played with Richie & Dana Fike, while Chynoweth was orphaned as a child by a deadly polygamist cult and grew up in FBI protection until he was healed by God.
Today, WorshipMob represents 30 local churches whose worship leaders gather to sing, pray, and encourage one another. They have written hundreds of songs and for the first time are releasing a full-length album called “Carry The Fire.”
I Am They releases debut album
“I Am They” is another collective of musicians, this one from Carson City, Nevada, who first performed together at Solomon’s Porch, a regular worship event uniting believers from across the city. Their new self-titled album debuted in the Top 10. The band takes their name from John 17, where Jesus prays for the disciples as "they."
A.D. The Bible Continues
Coming to NBC on Easter Sunday, “A.D. The Bible Continues” is the latest series from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, creators of “The Bible” mini-series and “Son Of God” (the movie). “A.D.” portrays the events following the Crucifixion. In conjunction, Integrity Music is releasing “Worship Anthems” featuring Paul Baloche, Jeremy Camp, Darlene Zschech, Kari Jobe, and others.
Audio Adrenaline 3.0
One of CCM’s most distinctive bands has undergone a complete overhaul.
In the 1980s, a group of students from Kentucky Christian University started a band that became known as Audio Adrenaline. Their edgy, high energy music included hits such as “Big House” and “Hands and Feet.”
AudioA (as they are known) disbanded in 2007 after lead singer Mark Stuart developed vocal problems. In 2010, Stuart and fellow member Will McGinnis formed a worship project called the “Know Hope Collective.”
In 2012, McGinnis recruited Kevin Max (of DC Talk) to sing lead vocals in a kind of Audio Adrenaline 2.0. Their “Kings And Queens” album was well-received. They even performed a concert at CMU in 2013.
Enter Audio Adrenaline 3.0. As of 2015, all the former members have decided to move on, and for the first time, AudioA does not have a single founding member. The new lead singer is Adam Agee, who says his former group Stellar Kart is “going to hit pause for a while.” The first single from their new album, “Love Was Stronger,” emphasizes harmonies and acoustic guitars and much less of the rock sound of Audio Adrenaline 1.0.
I tried resisting grace
The son of God still took my place
Cause love was stronger
Love was stronger
