The Elevation Conference in Boston, MA last month was amazing. It was a great place to network, build, grow, and be inspired as a person navigating artistry and ministry. The event featured panels, discussions, a block party, a concert, and a live music critique session. We were fortunate enough to have Matt Garaffolo take pictures all along the way. You can find his photography at @Mattedpictures on Instagram.

On August 23, Andy Mineo released a musical-podcast hybrid called Work in Progress. The project is unlike any released by the artist before, compiling several unreleased tracks into a single release with a podcast series used to create additional conversation. Whereas Mineo’s earlier releases accounted for a single season, Work in Progress gives listeners a more complete display of Mineo’s artistic evolution. Whether it be the fear of aging, a celebration of marriage, or musical experimentation, the album is a thematic feast and might be Mineo’s most powerful project yet. Perhaps the most crucial element of Work in Progress is […]
NF recently sat down for a conversation with Ill Will at NME.com this week. Being someone who tends to be pretty vulnerable on the mic, NF found some space here in front of a camera to be real. Considering himself to be a quite negative person and preparing for the worst, NF says he finds it thrilling that he outsold Chance The Rapper’s debut album ‘The Big Day’ in the first week of sales with his new album The Search. Nate also shares how his perception changes the older he gets. He looks back on the song How Could You Leave Us […]
Every year Veterans Day is celebrated across the U.S.A. to honor those who served in the military for our country and to remember those lost. Christian rap is a smaller platoon but there are several artists to thank today. Doc Watson Let’s kick it off with Doc Watson. Although not an artist per se, he is responsible for many of the artists we love and know today. He started out as a producer but saw the talent in Derek Minor and decided to push toward that. Eventually, the pair would create RMG. Wordsplayed What’s not to like about Wordsplayed? He […]
Up-and-coming artist Nic D released a new single called “Awkward” with a quality music video. “This song was inspired by me setting my career goals for the year and not only hitting those goals but surpassing them. I feel awesome about hitting the goals I set out to accomplish but, it feels awkward to feel good about it. It’s like in a way it’s prideful to feel good. It’s something that I need to get over and embrace the feelings.” To Stream or Buy the song from any digital music platform, click here. Watch Nic D – Awkward music video […]
Kanye West is premiering his music video for “Follow God” off of Jesus is King right now! Watch Kanye West below:
Music streaming is huge. Platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and others are some of the main sources of music traffic, especially amongst Hip Hop/Rap/R&B listeners. In this day and age, music is almost all digital. Many listeners enjoy their favorite artists and bands from their phones, their computers, their tablets, and other electronic devices. CDs have not become obsolete, but they have lost all traction. To put it in my own context, the last album I physically bought was Andy Mineo & Wordsplayed’s Magic and Bird (2017). Everything since then (some 1,000+ songs) has been a streaming download. I would dare say […]
