JOHNATHON THULIN & SHINE BRIGHT BABY - rescheduled date
Friday, 05/16/2014



*Rescheduled Show from Feb. 22nd - The band had to cancel because of a icy road accident on their way here.

Shine Bright Baby is BEC Recordings newest artist. Fans of the band's rocking indie record may be surprised to find that their BEC debut, Dreamers, is fueled by more of a pop sound. The opening tracks, "We Were Made to Glow" and "Overcome," are pop-rock tunes that show some of the group's potential, but don't quite feature the edge of their indie material.

CHRIS AUGUST & Bryon Mr Talkbox Chambers
Friday, 05/23/2014



Chris August has become a beloved part of the CCM world... and it's no wonder why. He's endeared himself with his unassuming talent, his surprisingly powerful vocal and his impeccable songwriting.

The self-taught pianist and keyboardist is coming back to his rootsier side with The Upside of Down CD Project, letting some of his more soulful, R&B influences take the spotlight. We could go on and on about moving moments, unpretentious melodies, and exquisite music, but we'll let the music speak for itself. Come experience a night with Chris August.



Special Guest: BRYON 'MR TALKBOX' CHAMBERS

Byron performed and toured with great gospel artists like the Mighty Clouds Of Joy, Jonathan Butler, Fred Hammond, CeCe Winans, Kurt Carr and Bishop T D Jakes, to name just a few. Then, in 1999 he was offered a position which catapulted him into the showbiz fast lane, playing keys with the mega selling boy band NSYNC. His work with NSYNC led to chances to tour with other pop superstars like the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, O-Town, Gloria Estefan and Jordan Knight. But as heady as the bright lights of fame and fortune were, Chambers took a good hard look at where his life was heading and he didn't like what he saw. He decided to step away from NSYNC in order to focus more time on his wife and family.

Chambers connected with CCM star Toby Mac and was featured on the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning projects 'Welcome to Diverse City' and 'Portable Sounds'. Byron won his own Dove Award for Hip-Hop Song Of The Year for co-writing the Group 1 Crew song "Movin'".

RANDY STONEHILL & Meg Proper
Saturday, 06/14/2014



More than forty years after the release of his first album (Born Twice 1971) Randy Stonehill has done a very remarkable thing for a music artist. He has created an album of new songs that is both fresh and
(dare I say?) his best. This is a particularly audacious opinion when you consider his previous 23 albums and such enduring songs as “King of Hearts”, “Shut De Do”, and “American Fast Food”.

The story of Randy Stonehill coming to Los Angeles in 1970 to apply for the job of “rock star” but finding Jesus instead has been told and retold innumerable times.  The contribution of this singer & songwriter over these forty four some years has been substantial – in first pioneering popular rock music with a Christian point of view and later demonstrating a consistency in holding to the faith through the trials and tribulations of ordinary life.



Randy was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1985 for his duet with Amy Grant and in 1988 CCM Magazine acclaimed his 1976 album Welcome to Paradise as among the top three most influential albums in the contemporary Christian genre.

Burlap to Cashmere redefined folk rock in the 90s through its unique melding of flamenco and Mediterranean influences crossed with poetically introspective lyrics, yet the band bowed out in 2001 after years of nonstop touring alongside some of the biggest acts in the business took its toll. A decade after its split, the band that paved the way for The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons – singer /guitarist/songwriter Steven Delopoulos, guitarist John Philippidis and drummer Theodore Pagano – have reunited, returning with a beautiful, stripped-down band sound.
