Here is "" INDIE GOSPEL ARTISTS Top 20 With J B"
For: SEPT 2014
1. "Mighty Rain" ^^ Andrew Kwon Incredible two Bullets definitely Top 10 National Christian Chart material. This young man has his finger on the pulse of The New Gospel Music; Listen to the intro, how it builds, how it develops, and yet, you can hear every word. You check out the video and it has the words super imposed so you can read the words as the song progresses. Andrew, again, this is a great song. Congratulations on another Winner! May the Lord continue to bless you and Mr. Choi ... JB*
2. "We Walker Together" ^ by Shauni Williams refreshing voice. nice working the lyrics to where you can follow very easily. . The Arrangement is very nice this is a nice job Shauni. Blessings ... JB
3. "Not Been Forsaken" by Claudette Schlitter ... Claudette is from the UK and this is truly a special song... on the verge of knocking on the door to a classic. nice work ... very nice.... JB
4. "And I Bow Down" ^^ sung by Crystal McGaha written by Annette Burrell. what a fresh approach by Crystal. Her crisp voice is a nice pleasant clear voice and the song has a neat message. Love that slide down and back with her voice ... Annette, this is a very good song. Looking forward to hearing other songs by the team of McGaha and Burrell. Blessings, JB
5. "This Gift of Love" ^^ by Ed Pettersen ... Question does our Auto-DJ work? I was listening to the Automatic DJ playing songs at random on Indie Gospel Radio. I heard a song it was really good. I knew that voice..who was that? I thought. Sure sounds like Ed. Later in the song there were some voice things he did in the song that said, yeah this is Ed Pettersen.. so I sent a message to him asking if he had a song that words like this.. and mentioned them to him. He came back and said yes he did have a song that sounded like that, it was "This Gift of Love". I went to check it out.. sure enough ... that was it! and immediately I made it an H/M (Honorable Mention) Now its in the Top 20 at #4.. great song Ed. ... JB
6. "Ole Sinner" by Randy Ward ... You will love this song, it touches the heart for real. This song has a touch of home behind it and you will undoubtedly like the ole Sinner in the last part of the song. Nice song Randy ... JB

"Holy Ghost Party" ^ - Rhoan Dell Love this tune.. it does make you feel upbeat, The ol C-Am-F-G progression It just flows with the song and yeah its good to remember when the Calypso Music was in and Bob Marley... Rhoan... this is a great up lifting song. No fair having fun singing a Christian Song... but I can tell ... you were having fun doing this one.... Blessings. Good job... James
9. "Million Praises" by Reggie Foster Reggie reminds me of Arlo Guthrie, and Dylan. "Million Praises" is a little different than most of Reggie's offerings. I like this because of the guitar progression with the hook through out the song... Nice work Reggie. Blessings JB
10. Holdin It Down Jesus Style" -^^^ Tyrone K. Sullivan .. .... What an intro ! Great beat, moves man, really moves! How can he sing like that? That cadence he is using in singing this is awesome! mind boggling to say the least. Hey even the boss like this song! This song was #1 lst month (June) it is an awesome song! Blessings Guys ... JB
11. "Three Fold Cord" by Marty and James Banfield ... we had a lot of fun putting this one together but after letting it perculate a while I think we are going to have a redo on this one. This is fo give an idea of how it goes.

16. "Mercy, Mercy" ^^ by Ulysses Brown .. What an intro! 10 seconds and you are into it and Ulysses' knack of lyrics is unique to say the least. Double bullet for sure ... just needs a little tweaking on the doubling.. Wow! incredible piece of work... Blessings Ulysses ... JB
