The Waiting – Unfazed CD – Available Now


The Waiting is one of Christian music's best rock bands: musically accomplished (Todd Olsen's guitar and Brad Olsen's increasingly commanding voice stand out), lyrically sharp, fully able to match an interesting thematic idea to terrific hard pop/rock. The Olsen brothers, born in New York, moved to Atlanta in their early years, eventually attending college there. Their father convinced them to record their first demos, which eventually turned into 1991's Tillbury Town. Having met Clark Leake (bass) and Brandon Thomspon (drums), the group quickly improved and were eventually signed to R.E.X. for 1995's Blue Belly Sky, a masterpiece of rock and worship music. Singles like "Mercy Seat" did well on Christian radio, drawing the attention of Sparrow, who signed them for their third album, The Waiting (1997). The album spawned three number one Christian radio singles, Grammy and Dove nominations (including one for the remarkable "Hands in the Air"), and Sparrow re-released Blue Belly Sky with additional tracks to fill the gap between product. The group, having done some serious woodshedding, culled Unfazed (1998) from as many as 40 songs written with outside writers; the sonically rich CD spent six weeks at number one on the Christian charts, and a single ("Speak") was released to regular rock radio to little effect. Still, the CD garnered great reviews even in Billboard magazine, and the group had grown into one of the sharpest, tightest units around. ~ Doug Dwyer, All Music Guide

Profile: Steve Camp - Singer, Songwriter

Steven J. Camp (born April 13, 1955) is a prominent American Dove Award-nominated contemporary Christian music artist with an adult contemporary pop sound. He was very popular in the 1980s and early 1990s, but his popularity now continues mostly in his ChristianReformed Theology. He started Audience One Ministries, and his blog covering Christian music, biblical study, reformation, and revival. writing addressing current trends and matters of Reformed Theology. He started Audience One Ministries, and his blog covering Christian music, biblical study, reformation, and revival.

He is well-known for his strong views that Christian musicians are called to make direct, uncompromising music that confronts the world with the message of the Scriptures. Following Martin Luther's 95 theses, on Reformation Day (October 31), 1998 he sent out his own 107 theses calling for a reformation in contemporary Christian music.
Born in Wheaton, Illinois, Camp was raised by Christian parents; by 5 years of age he confessed faith in Jesus. This greatly influenced his desire to serve God through his teenage years. As a young Christian, he created a close bond with legendary Christian singer/songwriter Larry Norman, who gave him advice concerning his own singing and songwriting. In addition, he met the late Keith Green, who encouraged him to make a stronger commitment to Jesus and at the same time his own ministry.

Camp attended Roosevelt University, where he majored in Music Composition and Theory under Professor Dodds, protegee to George Gershwin, and studied Business Law/Music at the College of DuPage, where his goal was to spread the gospel. Among many other college professors Steve had studied under, Camp didn't go through his academic circles for his theological or musical training. He did exactly that; hence, he received intense working knowledge of Scripture and theology, mastering the Greek language, and he has accomplished a library of historical and theological works. Camp also retains an orthodox historical Reformed theology, in the tradition of John Owen, Jeremiah Burroughs, Thomas Watson, Dr. John F. MacArthur, Dr. D.A. Carson, Dr. R.C. Sproul and the late Dr. Stephen Olford. He also began a longtime relationship with a then-unknown - Rob Frazier - in the late 1970s. Frazier, a one-time Petra member, began his tenure with Camp co-writing songs for Camp's own albums. Camp's singing career began when he played acoustic guitar and sang backups on Scott Wesley Brown's 1977 album, I'm Not Religious, I Just Love The Lord, one year before he went on his own. Compared to Frazier, he also began a longtime friendship with Brown in 1973, aged 18 at the time. Camp was reunited with Frazier on Frazier's 1992 compilation Retrospect, on which Frazier and Camp sang duet vocals for the song Why.

Christian Music Sale: Salvador – Salvador (Debut Album) Rare, Out-of-Print – Collectors Series


Salvador's Myrrh Records debut is a powerhouse production of Latin-influenced praise and worship. Producer Monroe Jones (Chris Rice, Third Day, Ginny Owens) has again demonstrated his Midas touch.

The album begins with an explosion of Latin-funk in "Lord, I Come Before You," and then flows into a sizzling salsa groove with "David Danced." Between choruses there is an abundance of instrumental jamming for those who know how to use their feet. The horn section, flamenco guitar, and layered percussion glamorize this music with no holds barred. Never before has worship been this fun! But Salvador demonstrates tenderness as well.

Lead singer Nick Gonzales makes this project complete with messages of salvation and healing. The five members of Salvador have much in common. Between them, there are two brothers, one cousin, two pastor's kids, and two worship leaders. These family and ministry ties have made an unmistakable mark on their music. They deliver pure spiritual material that cannot be ignored. --Israel Button

Christian Music Sale: Wayne Watson – Home Free CD - Collector's Series - Limited Time!


A native of Wisner, Louisiana, CCM singer/songwriter Wayne Watson originally planned to pursue a career playing baseball, but while in college he began dabbling in music, and after graduation regularly performed in area churches. While leading worship at a Christian youth camp, the father of one of the children videotaped Watson's performance and sent it to a Nashville industry rep; his debut LP, Workin' in the Final Hour, followed in 1980.

A series of albums like 1982's New Lives for Old, 1984's Man in the Middle and 1985's Giants in the Land followed before his breakthrough record, the Grammy-nominated Watercolor Ponies, appeared in 1987; Watson also notched well over a dozen Dove Award nominations, and launched a number of CCM chart-toppers including "The Class of '95," "Be in Her Eyes," "A Beautiful Place." "Walk in the Dark," "More of You," "It's Time," "Home Free" and "Almighty." In 1995 he signed to Warner/Alliance to issue Field of Souls; The Way Home followed three years later. Appropriately, his song "For Such a Time as This" was used as the theme for the 1999 season premiere of CBS's popular series Touched by an Angel, reflecting Watson's own growing popularity in the secular music arena. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Christian Music Sale: Susan Ashton - So Far: The Best Of Susan Ashton CD - Available For A Limited Time!


Many may not know that Susan Ashton was one of the most popular and respected contemporary Christian vocalists for most of the 1990s before her crossover to country music. This compilation highlights some of her greatest work in that genre and includes selections from her first three albums (Wakened by the Wind, Angels of Mercy, Susan Ashton) and two additional cuts.

Susan Ashton possesses a pure, gorgeous voice that immediately captivates. It is an incredible, expressive gift honed by a passion for her craft and a commitment to her calling -- it is a precise, masterful vocal presence. "So Far" is a testament to an amazing voice and an even more amazing partnership with songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick. His intelligent, thoughtful lyrics and gorgeous melodies go straight to the heart of the Christian walk. Together they create some of the most honest testimonies of living faith you may ever hear.

Much of this material would be considered acoustic pop/rock with some country leanings and even a little jazz ("Remember Not").

Featured Artist Profile: Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart

Mylon LeFevre (born October 6, 1944 in Gulfport, Mississippi) is the former Christian rock singer of the Grammy Award-winning band Mylon and Broken Heart and a Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame member. He currently travels around the United States, ministering, teaching and singing. He frequently appears on such television networks as the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the Daystar Television Network.

In 1980, LeFevre "committed [his] life to Jesus". He got a job as a janitor at his church, Mt. Paran Church of God, in Atlanta. He started a Christian band called Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart in 1981 with some musicians he met in a Bible study: Kenny Bentley, John Hampton, Joe Hardy, and Dean Harrington. A small offshoot gospel label from MCA Records known as Songbird released his "comeback" album Brand New Start in 1981. Over the years guitarists Scott Allen and Trent Argante would also be members, along with keyboardist Marshall Pratt.

Over the next ten years, he released ten albums and traveled over a million miles. In 1987, the group attempted to cross over to mainstream rock by rechristening itself Look Up! and releasing an album on non-Christian industry label Columbia Records. The album contained a retooled updating of "Peace Begins Within" from the We Believe album and a cover of DeGarmo and Key's "Love is All You Need" but it was not the breakthrough success the band had hoped for.

In 1987, the band received a Rock Album of The Year GMA Dove Award for Crack the Sky. That same year, they received a Grammy for Best Gospel Performance by a Duo, Group, Choir, or Chorus.
