These artists make amazing music. They also walk with Jesus. Their thoughts, struggles and passions come out through their music. As a musician myself, I understand the difficulty of being catalogued alongside typical “Christian” mainstream music. The average radio station will murder a song and turn it into something despised and abused in the matter of weeks. So, I don’t wish these guys get “found” in the sense of radio-play, but absolutely believe they deserve credit and appreciation for their incredible indie/alternative musicianship and dedication to the Gospel.

There are actually many more amazing artists, many of which are available for free download on Noisetrade.com.
*Gungor recently was featured on K-Love, a Christian radio station in Chicago. Their song “Beautiful Things” will most likely be exploited and will overshadow their other incredible songs. If you can look past the faults of the radio-station community, you’ll love their music.
