Bassist, Engineer Went to be with the Lord

Marty and I have had the neatest friendship with our Friend, Bassist, and our Engineer BJ Marchand.  After a long battle with ill health, messing with his heart and lungs and legs (Me too) BJK passed away two weeks ago Saturday.  He rose the Victory Banner for real and is with the Lord for real and is now riding with the Lord! Knowing BJ, He probably convinced the Lord to ride Harleys... You can hear BJ in everyone of Marty's and my songs on our Indie Gospel Pages. and the dream that we all had…See More

To Be released immediately ... IGA's own E. Pettersen to audition for America's Got Talent

To the membership:E. (Ed) Pettersen has been with IGA (Indie Gospel Artists) for a few years.  Not to be confused with another Ed Pettersen (also a professional musician), who just joined us. Actually the new Ed bought the legal rights to the name which is why long time member Ed goes by E. Pettersen (confused yet- lol). Ed (E.) has had several #1 songs on the IGA Chart and he had the #3 song of the 2013 year in "Baggage Claim". With all that, he was instrumental in helping put together the…See More

For: November 2014 

********************

 

*

1.    "No Fear IN Faith" ^  by  Billy Droze  written by a member of IGA George Wells. Congratulations George and Alvia on a well written songs with a super message!

Recorded by Billy Droze. Written by: Alvia Sandberg and George Wells.  This is Bill Droze

with a solid country voice. Great Song and very well done. Check over at George Wells page on Indie Gospel, I think the story of this song is posted there.  awesome  ... JB

*

2.   "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

*

3.  "This Gift of Love" ^^  by  E. 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 Mr. Pettersen.  Later in the song there were some voice things he did in the song that said, yeah this is him .. 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 #3.. great song Ed. ...  JB

*

4.    "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

*

5.  "We Walk 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 ... Congratulations on making #1 Last Month!  Wow ...  JB

*

6.  "Calling God"  by  Sean Croley From The Album "Launch Out In The Deep" This is     Classic Sean Croley of "The Weak Need" from Canada.  A Touch of freshness. Thank         You Sean... I am enjoying this one... :) Blessings,  JB

*

7.  "West Texas Rain" ^ by Mark Anthony Brown  West Texas Rain, cool, Mark;s got a touch with song, in some parts it reminds you of other songs, but the lyrics are refreshing.  Shhh .. dont tell anyone, Mark might get a bighead, but this song gonna go somewhere, no doubt. Mark, ya did it again, bud,  Congrats.  JB. 

*

8.  "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

*

9.  "Your are the Reason" * by Andrew Qwon ... a new release from a very exciting voice  in the midst of all the artists in Indie Gospel Artists. Ok, guys and I mean guys do you lie awake in bed dreaming up different sounds and mixtures to blend into a cohesive project?.. I thought "Speaking of You" was good, then no "Mighty Rain" was better. both ended up being #1... Now, here I am listening to "You are the Reason" Its different and yet it speaks volumes!...  Let's see what others say about it.  Man, three in a row.. too much!  lol  you all have a good one.  JB

*

10.  "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*

*

11.   "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

*

12.  "Good Favor" by The Weak Need from Canada.  This song is a bit different for sure, but its catchy the way it is presented.. check it out.....    JB

*

13"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.  

*

14.  "Because of Me" By The Weak Need from Canada. really cool intro .... These guys are good, really good, love their expression in music.  listen to style, doesn't it remind you of Simon and Garfunkel in a way? and yet I hear a slight hint of Beatles in there, not to mention a style of the BeeGees as well. but, it is all "The Weak Need". Give it a listen.. you will love it.

*

15.  "EveryNail" ^ Steve Hutson awesome intro, sets up the whole song, so you can concentrate to the lyrics.. yeah.. this is good. coming out of the 2nd verse is dynamite!  Great Arrangement Steve. The dynamics are right there!

*

 16.   "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  

*

17.    "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

*

18.  "In The Sands"  by Linda Senn  love the banjo intro. smooth, Linda has a nice voice to listen to, and you can actually understand the words, scary.... of course we all know about the famous painting of "The Footprints in the sand ... Well this is about that.. love it.. thank you Linda.  JB

*

19.  "Let Your Praise Be Loud By Joe Wamsley  Is this Joe? Now I know Joe Wamsley and I think I know his music.. I think? Gotta find Joe... I think he's lost! Man where did this song come from? Man Joe, ya done did it! Love it! I really love this song! says it right and still it has the life in it ... cool man... Its got that ummppff ... nice touch with B3 and the Horns ... Good job.... JB

*

20.  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

*                                                         "Blast From The Past"

21.    "I Wanna Go Home" By 2LiveByGrace  I have always loved the intro to this song, ever since I first heard it a couple years ago. What is unique to this song is the way Greg captures the heart of the Prodigal Son. He was able to really express the heart of the Son, and the heart of God at the sametime.  It was number 12 for the year 2013. and so this is the "Blast from the Past" from the Indie Artists Top 20 archives. Listen and enjoy. You will see why this song has been a staple here at Indie Gospel Artists.  and to 2LiveByGrace ...  I pray many blessings over you folks as you contine to minister and bless others for the Lord in His fields. 

                                              *******Honorable Mentions***#22-25**************

22.  "Even After"  by JIm Sheldon ... this is his latest offering.   The Story is awesome. It is about his sister. Enjoy this beautiful song. And remember, your witness will be remembered, even after we have left this earthly ream.  I know. It is a fact. I must also remind you and all of us, When Jesus said, that His word will not fall to ground. it can't. Why is that? it is because that we, his witnesses continually to show His Gospel through our Witness in our lives. Marty's and My good friend had the heart of a servant and his witness was of that fact, and will never fall to the earth, his memory will never fall either because he served the Lord thy God. Blessings BJ. You were indeed A Servant for the Lord. Concerning the song. "EVEN AFTER" ? Well done, Jim. I think its a sleeper... Praise Him, James.....

  "THE SOUND OF HOPE" PROJECT

Please, we need to make an all out effort to make "THE SOUND OF HOPE" into  a Major Priority Work. All we need to do as a group on the internet is support the project by purchasing an album or join in the company of people who are intimately involved.   and don't forget the "Love Offering Tour" ... :)  love in Christ James.

.

Have a Good Month ...  Don't forget to let me know if you have a new song you are getting ready to launch ( jban1946@bellsouth.net ) ... (Don't forget that box that allows the song to be added to the playlists)

                  Please Don't Forget "The Sound of Hope" The kids need our help ...

See ya all later and Blessings to all of you,   JB

Thanks James.  Glad you're enjoying it.  The new guitar player and myself co-wrote a few of them so it was great to have some more creativity added to the pot.

At 11:56pm on September 27, 2014, Annette Burrell said…

Once again, JB; thanks for keeping "And I Bow Down" in your top 20.  It's all about God, and worshiping Him. EVERYTHING else is secondary.  So, for God to entrust us to present that message was something unexplainable. We trust in Him and rely on Him to take this song to wherever He wants it to go.  I am working on the next song for Crystal, which I pray will develop into her first album.   Only God knows what He has in store.

Blessings!

At 8:35pm on September 20, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…

Thank you James! Honorable and mention is great opportunity to introduce a song to the members here! Thank you for the honest feedback!!

At 5:34pm on August 17, 2014, George Wells said…

James, I forgot that point.  Billy Droze is living in Nashville.  I have never met him so I don't have anything to share.  You can visit his facebook page and there is some info there about him.  Hope that helps.

George Wells

At 3:50pm on August 17, 2014, George Wells said…

Alvia decided he would like to write gospel music.  He saw a testimony written by a fellow songwriter, George Wells.  When he read the  line "No Fear In Faith", he said, George, there is your gospel song.  George wrote the first draft and the co-writing was underway.  In October Alvia and George went into Mill Kids Studio and recorded the song   While in Tampa, Florida recently, Alvia’s friend, Billy Droze from Nashville came up and they went into the studio.  Billy Droze did the vocals and Alvia the arrangement.  I have been writing for 52 years now, but I am more excited about this song than any one I have ever written.  The message, the vocal and the arrangement just seemed to come together so well.  Hope the blessings in the song can be heard by all.Thank you James for your attention to our song.  Stay blessed..stay close to God.

George Wells

Thanks guys for my song in the top 20 On That Golden Road. If you like beach music. Then this is your day. I didn't think it would be receptive because of the beach beat but it was. It was # 7 for a couple of weeks on Southern Gospel. One day we will walk on that rd amen Love all everybody here has great talent and I believe use4s it for the Lord

At 11:45am on May 1, 2014, Annette Burrell said…

Thank you JB! So excited. When God woke me up at 3:00am about 2 years ago I had no idea at that moment that he wanted me to write this song and have it recorded. He was looking for my obedience in following him. We debuted the song in January of 2014. I have gone on to write a book about the song "He Gave Me a Song"; and five children's books. They are actually a series, "The Adventures of Danny Cricket". And, I'm currently drafting my first novel.

Thanks for your ministry! And may God continue to Bless you.

At 6:05pm on April 22, 2014, Miracle Maker said…

Hey James,
Glad you like "You and I".  That song in all it's simplicity seems to be a favorite to our listeners.  We may even do a remake of that song with our keyboard player Gregg as it was recorded when we were a power trio.  Anyway, on behalf of the band and I we really appreciate your support and added us to your Top 20!  God bless!!
Frank,
*Miracle Maker 

At 4:38pm on April 16, 2014, Annette Burrell said…

JB - Thanks for the compliment about my song which was recorded by my daughter Crystal McGaha. To answer you question about my involvement in the song. I wrote the lyrics and had the tune. A friend of Crystal's actually put the music to it.  God gave me the song in several dreams over the course of a week, just over 2 years ago. I am very blessed.

At 1:46pm on April 1, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…

Amen to that J B!!  HE is the reason why do we what we do!!

At 10:40pm on March 31, 2014, Andrew Kwon said…
I feel so honored even to be in the top20! Im so thankful for the opportunity to share this song with brothers and sisters in IGA! Thank you JB! God is so amazing!!
