Meet the Artists

Lecrae

Lecrae

“More caught than taught,” is how the artist describes his incredible journey that includes two Grammys, a history-making #1 album with his masterful 2014 offering, Anomaly (topped multiple categories, including the Billboard 200 and is RIAA Gold certified), and a compelling live resume, most recently notching a headlining 2016 ‘Destination’ tour which Lecrae says was about “real unity, not pretend unity.”

Family Force 5

Famly Force 5

FF5 is the brainchild of twin brothers Jacob and Joshua Olds: two Atlanta-bred musicians with wildly divergent sensibilities and a shared passion for shattering boundaries. Although the Nashville-based duo has endured much upheaval over the years, FF5 now returns with new music that proves their chemistry to be more potent than ever.

I Am They

I Am They

I AM THEY made its national debut in January 2015 with their self-titled album on Essential Records. The band’s five-piece, the pop-acoustic-worship sound is anchored by three-part vocal harmonies. The group, made up of Abbie Parker (vocals/harmonium), Jon McConnell (vocals/guitar/keys), Matt Hein (vocals/guitar/mandolin), Justin Shinn (keys/banjo) and Sara Palmer (drums) represent I AM THEY – inspired by John 17.

The Young Escape

The Young Escape

Hailing from Southern California, THE YOUNG ESCAPE (Capitol) delivers a fresh shot of EDM-infused Indie pop with the energetic live show to match. Comprised of siblings Ryan, McKenna, Kyrsten, and Luke Johns, the band’s debut singles “good life” and “neverfade” are an alchemy of modern pop sheen and sophisticated edge. TYE speaks to the themes of insecurity, anxiety, and pressure facing every kid in the modern age with the hope and escape that’s found in the kinetic spirit of youth.

Damac
