Here is "" INDIE GOSPEL ARTISTS Top 20 With J B"
For: JULY 2014
1. "Mansion In The Sky" By Jim Sheldon .. I have to say, Jim Sheldon is happening for real... it seems the Lord kinda put him on a train bound for places unknown.. Jesus has him ministering all over the place, including the TV airwaves! Jim, You got another good one here.. Congratulations on #1 ! ... Blessings JB
2. "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 Gaha and Burrell. Blessings, JB
3. "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
4. 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
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 #5.. great song Ed. JB
6. "You And I" by Miracle Maker ... Good job ... love the intro ... different and yet clear love the harmonies that kinda sneek in there and supports the vocals.. nice song... Blessings JB
7. "Speak Of You" by Andrew Kwon ... ^^^ Bullets Records are made to be broken .. So this song done did it. The month before last (March) This song was #20, last month it was #2 (April) that is a 19 place jump! It was the #1 Song of the Month for May!The largest jump in the history of this chart and we are 4 years old now. I got hooked on "Speak of You" immediately, especially when he hit the Chorus ... coming out of the verse... Wow! This song will definitely be around for a while... On its way down from up there on top it is now at #7. Great Job Andrew. .... Blessing JB
8. "We Walker Together" ^ by Shauni Williams refreshing voice. nice working the lyrics to where you can follow very easily. . this is a nice job Shauni. Blessings ... JB
9. "My Salvation" by Quincy Whetstone Surprise! I thought this was going to be another RAP song ... but Quincy slips in melody, beat, and a good message. Nice Job Quincy... Blessings to you. 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. I Am Yours" ^ Joe Wamsley classic piano, bass smooth to where the music is the accompaniement. lyrics stand out and are clear, really cool song.Blessings JB
12. "Reign" ^^ By Curtis Wayne Hurley This song made it all the way to #6. Love the piano intro and the switch into the nice upbeat, actually he is using a Rap beat but not in the usual way we are used to listening to Rap. Hear he is using good harmonies, cool beat, and singing in a cadence, with a Story, a Message to the Song for real... Nice job Curtis. JB
13. "Jesus Is" by Mike Adams check it out ... If you like good ol country, then you will like this! I got inside info ... Jesus loves country too hehehe especially this kind. you go Mike... man this is great! JB
14. "Not Been Forsaken" by Claudette Schlitter ... Claudette is from the UK and this is truly a special song... nice work ... very nice.... JB
15. "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
16. "Who You Are" by Gabriel Cross... incredible intro .. it just lays you back and hints of a personal touch between You and the Lord. Love the progression. Nice Cut Gabriel. Blessings JB
17. "Could You Imagine" by Isaac Johnson " I heard Isaac a couple of years ago. His material is touching, personal, and his delivery is awesome. I think you will like this song, "Could You Imagine" from Isaac Johnson.... its been in the top 10 for four months. Now that saying somethin' Hey Isaac, nice job on this one buddy, really nice. JB
18. "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
19. "Wayfaring Stranger" - by Carla Bragg ... In Feb this song had one of the largest jumps in the chart.! wow! Carla took an old standard and really did a moving dedicated rendition of this song and really showed some awesome respect for its place in Gospel Music! Listen to the Bass how it carries the song, how Carla smoothly glides over the lyrics subtly... awesome, but what was it that made it #1? Listen to the arrangement, ever hear it done like that? incredible guitar work, Good Job Carla... Oh By The Way ... Carla is out there ministering to the people, She has a few albums to her credit and is on award shows for what she does in her ministry. Blessings Carla! ... JB
20. "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.
21. "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
22. "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
Have a Good Month ... Don't forget to let me know if you have a new song you are getting ready to launch ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) ... (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 ...
