8tracks

I am super obsessed with this app on my ipod! (http://8tracks.com/) So it is like a radio but all the playlists are put together by people! There are so many different types and styles. You can pick by genre, feeling, or lots of other tags! So I have been listening ALOT lately! There are some drawbacks – You can only skip a few tracks, can’t see the playlist ahead of time and can’t go back and listen to whatever song you want! (You might be able to but I havent figured it out yet!)

Here are a few artists that I am discovering I LOVE:

Imagine Dragons, Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver and more that I can’t remember off the top of my head!

So check it out and make your own playlist!

****I have not looked too much into these bands – I do not know all their songs or what they stand for. They may use language I don’t approve of or lyrics I wouldn’t like in some songs but for now I just like their sound.****

Volcano…..

Have you been following this seasons American Idol? Well I have and I am HOPING that this finale will end with Phillip Phillips as the winner! Come on! His name alone is awesome!!

This is one contestant that I actually would buy their album when it comes out! Anyways! I loved when he sang “Volcano – by Damien Rice”. SO I downloaded it last week (the original version from Damien Rice) and have been listening to it OVER AND OVER ever since!!

Here is the link to Damien Rice’s site – http://damienrice.sandbag.uk.com/Store/Music.html

Alive Inside!!!! JULY 23rd 2011!!

 

I am soooo EXCITED to post about this amazing event that is so close to my heart! On Saturday July 23rd we will be having our 10th annual outdoor rock concert event ALIVE INSIDE! It started in 2002 as a CD release party for the band Fridays Cry and has transformed into the biggest christian event on Vancouver Island! Each year has brought more people and more top quality performers, including Tree 63, Thousand Foot Crutch,Leeland, Sonic Flood, Starfeild, Corey Doaks, Manafest, John Reuben and so many more!

Last year it was decided that instead of charging people for tickets, we would be offering them FREE OF CHARGE! Now if you have been to Alive Inside in the past you will realize that this is not some inexpensive, unexperienced event. This is a professional and well run festival! So offering it free was a huge step of FAITH for our church (The Oasis) BUT we did it and soooo many people came and sooo many people heard the gospel! HOW EXCITING! So tickets are FREE again!!

So if you are looking for an AWESOME time!! Come and hang out at ALIVE INSIDE! Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and hats and enjoy a day of great music and great people. Bring the kids and enjoy the kids carnival (maybe they’ll win a bike!), bring some cash to buy your dinner from the awesome concession, do some shopping at the artist merch area and to GIVE AN OFFERING to help cover expenses!

THE 2011 LINEUP!

LEELAND

 GRAMMY-nominated progressive rock act Leeland has been known to deliver songwriting beyond its years and worshipful rock so genuine it disarms the honest cynic. Often quoted as one of Christian music’s most gripping live bands, the 2006 debut Sound of Melodies and 2008’s Opposite Way quickly established Leeland as a leader in the worship community and beyond. While both previous albums were GRAMMY nominated and drew a combined eight Dove nominations, Leeland’s measure of success has always been the human heart. And now Leeland’s third album, Love Is On The Move is a landmark in the deepest sense.

RAPTURE RUCKUS

In a market flooded with bands it takes something extra special to grab your attention these days. Rapture Ruckus are one of those rare groups that are cutting through the noise and connecting with people all over the world using their catchy blend of rock and hip-hop.

Perhaps the first real display of this magnetism in action came at New Zealand’s renowned Parachute Music Festival. There, fronted by talented producer/songwriter Brad Dring, they won the hearts of over 25,000 people and went on to break the festival record for Highest-Selling Debut Act.

So what is Rapture Ruckus? Big stadium-ready choruses. Raw honesty and passion. Songs that are captivating audiences all around the globe.

Maybe it’s about time you got some RUCKUS in your life?

FRIDAYS CRY

For Fridays Cry the calling to touch heaven and see people changed through their music, has never been stronger. The name Fridays Cry is taken from when Jesus cried out “It is finished” from the cross.
The music is a blend of stylish rock and passionate choruses that find you singing along at the top of your lungs. Some would call Fridays Cry a rock band and others would say they are Worship leaders. “We want all we do to bring Glory to the Lord”. “Sing along choruses or big rock songs are all for Him and we just want people to join us in lifting our voices toward heaven”

Good Friday

These are the lyrics to a song by an artist name Matt Maher. I though that they would be fitting for a Good Friday blog post. It is called Christ is risen. I hope you all remember what was done for us.

“Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him who showed great love

And bled for us
Freely You’ve bled for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bowed to none but heaven’s will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold You down

In strength You reign
Forever let Your church proclaim

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night

Sing it, o death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
Our God is not dead, He’s alive, He’s alive
