Titled "Safe In My Father's Arms," the song already the most downloaded and streamed tune according to PlayMPE at press time. "Safe In My Father's Arms" is a reminder of how good it feels to know that we are all truly safe in God's arms.

“It was during a particular season of walking through so many unknowns when this song was written,” shares guitarist Chris Rohman. “We had to take a moment and look back so we could see the path God had brought us down. Once we did that, we wanted to write a song that expressed the joy we felt knowing God had been with us through it all and what it feels like to be held so lovingly by Him.”

Along with the debut of "Safe In My Father's Arms," Sanctus Real also announces their new lead singer, Dustin Lolli, who officially joins long-time band members Rohman and Mark Graalman.

7Core Music are pleased to announce the 2nd of 3 brand new label signing's coming this year, THROWBACK KID.

Take a splash of Badly Drawn Boy, a spoonful of Jack Johnson, add a sprinkling of The Beach Boys and top off with a little Waterboys Fisherman’s blues era and you’ll come close to Throwback Kid.

Last year, popular UK Worship leader Pete James found himself going back to his routes and writing songs about family, friends, and life in general. Knowing that these songs would never fit on one of his ‘Congregational worship albums’, but seeing the effect they had on people he played them to, he knew he had to get in a studio and record these new ideas. He described it as ‘Flowing With The Feeling’.

In stepped 7Core Music and some amazing local session musicians to help make Pete’s feeling become a reality, and Throwback Kid was born.

An EP ‘Flowing with the Feeling’ will be released on July 13th.  Listen to the first single ‘Bluebells and Blossom’here: http://www.noisetrade.com/throwbackkid/bluebells-and-blossom


Integrity Music welcomes Nashville-based singer, songwriter and worship leader ALISA TURNER and announces the August 25 release of her debut, self-titled project.

Singing since childhood, the piano has been Turner’s “meeting place” with God, where she lays everything – joy, heartache, pain and hope – at the altar. Her life has not been an easy one, from overcoming years of debilitating illness, to losing her infant son. She takes these experiences and pours them into eloquent, psalm-like piano driven melodies. It’s been an uphill battle, but giving up is not an option for Turner who is following in her worship leader dad’s footsteps. “I think the Lord created me this way, drawn in by the emotion that comes with music,” Turner says. “When I sit down at the piano, He always uses it to draw me back, to awaken the dreamer, and I always leave different than when I came. I leave knowing He sees me, He is with me, He is my hope.”


Chart-topping seven-time Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter and worship leader TODD AGNEW has unveiled his latest project, a 16-track collection of new songs, as well as unreleased, remixed, and favourite tracks from the vault. The new collection, appropriately  entitled From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew, released on May 26, 2017 from Ardent Records.

Serving as a scrapbook of sorts, From Grace to Glory is a musical chronicle of Agnew's journey of faith and ministry. It is a time capsule of moments, both profoundly intimate and exuberantly bold, that captures the essence of walking out the gospel hand-in-hand with friends and family, through good times and hard times. It is the journal of one man's transformation from a young singer/songwriter to troubadour theologian. Along with the new material, the prolific singer/songwriter layers into From Grace to Glory a collection of some of his most cherished songs which are not part of his Ardent Records discography, most of which have not been previously released.


Orphan No More is excited to release the new single from RACHEL JANE, 'Waiting For A Change' (produced by Joshua Luke Smith). This new, dynamic, high energy offering showcases an honesty from the young songstress that evolves into an anthem of courage, perseverance, and strength, in the midst of frustration and delay.

She says of the record "This song came out of a season where I learned that even when you feel so ready to do all that you feel born to do, it's not necessarily going to happen when you want it to. This song is for anyone needing encouragement in a time of waiting and growing in patience. Keeping holding on and pressing in, breakthrough can happen in a moment."

With soul-bearing vocals and more passion than ever, her new EP 'The Mountain' will be released in July 2017, showcasing a maturity, vulnerability and open-hearted honesty that has become of Rachel Jane since her debut.


Integrity Music announces the July 21 global release of Saved By Grace, the solo debut from U.K. based worship leader and curate CHRIS SAYBURN.

Sayburn’s name may be new to many U.S. worship music fans, but we, his U.K. mates know him well. In addition to leading New Wine Worship, the worship ministry for the New Wine fellowship of churches, Sayburn has been writing for and collaborating on Integrity Music projects for several years. This includes his work on New Wine’s last albums Wildfire and Simple Pursuit.

With Saved By Grace, Sayburn and producer Ben Cantelon (Worship Central) deliver 10 new songs including cowrites with Cantelon (Saviour of the World), Nick Herbert (The Way) and Brenton Brown (Everlasting God) among others.

But good songs with catchy melodies are not the end game for Sayburn, who serves as curate for St. Philips Chapel Street in Salford, Manchester. “My benchmark for success is that the album adds value in serving the Church,” he explains. “I already know God loves my songs… He loves all our songs of worship whether they are on albums or not! But my desire is to write songs that the local Church can get hold of and use. “Many songs have played an important part in certain seasons in my life,” Sayburn adds. “It would be a blessing to hear if just one song impacts someone to keep going, keep loving and following Jesus… this would be worth all the effort.”
