ABOUT AUDIO ADRENALINE Since they became a band in the mid 90’s, to date Audio Adrenaline has sold over 3 million records, has garnered two GRAMMY® Awards (for Best Rock Gospel Album of the Year for Until My Heart Caves In and Worldwide) and multiple Dove Awards. The band has achieved 17 No. 1 singles, was awarded CCM Song of the Decade for “Big House” and their 1996 album Bloom received RIAA Gold certification. In 2007, Audio A’s lead vocalist Mark Stuart had to step down due to a medical condition called spasmodic dysphonia (involuntary muscle spasms of the larynx). Forced to stop singing altogether, the band chose to disband, turning their energies to their Hands & Feet Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, family-style care for orphaned and abandoned children of the world with the love of Christ. In 2012, prompted by a series of conversations with noted CCM artist manager Wes Campbell (Newsboys), Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss re-launched Audio Adrenaline, in partnership with Campbell and his agency, First Company Management. Together, they invited former DC Talk vocalist Kevin Max to be the new frontman for the band, as well as rounding out the new lineup with several CCM veteran musicians. Together, Audio A returns with the same heart, passion and infectious musical prowess, while serving as spokesmen for the Hands & Feet Project.

Original band members Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss are still very much a part of the re-formed band. McGinniss continues his role as the band’s bassist while Stuart is very much a part of the overall brand management, writing for the new album as well as serving as Hands & Feet Project’s Executive Director. With the addition of Max as lead vocalist, CCM vets Dwayne Larring (Sonicflood) on guitar and Jared Byers (Bleach) on drums, Audio Adrenaline made its highly-anticipated Fair Trade Services label debut with Kings & Queens in 2013. Net proceeds from album sales will go to Hands & Feet Project, the ministry that was founded by Stuart and McGinniss in 2004. For more information, please visit and

ABOUT KUTLESS The Portland, Oregon-based band has released eight studio albums on BEC Recordings, including the brand new project Glory (Feb. 11, 2014). Kutless has two RIAA Gold-selling albums for Strong Tower and Live From Portland. The band has had 12 No. 1 radio singles across all formats including their major hits “Strong Tower,” “What Faith Can Do” and “Carry Me To The Cross.” In 2012, Kutless released their most recent studio release, Believer, to much media and sales acclaim debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian & Gospel Chart as well as No. 1 on the iTunes Christian Albums chart.

Launched by original members Jon Micah Sumrall (lead vocals) and guitarist James Mead, the band formed first as a modern rock/worship band at Warner Pacific College in Portland in 2000. Kutless signed to Tooth & Nail/BEC in late 2001 and released its self-titled debut the following year, which went on to become the fastest-selling debut in the label’s history. Kutless is John Micah Sumrall, James Mead, Nick de Partee and Kyle Peek

Comprised of Blake NeeSmith (lead singer/vocals), Dustin Daniels (bass/guitar/vocals), Josh Duckworth (drums) and Allen Dukes (guitar/vocals), the South Georgia group made an impressive debut with their emotionally powerful single, “Slip On By,” from their acclaimed self-titled Gotee Records project. They have toured with The Afters, Hawk Nelson, 33Miles, Abandon, Todd Agnew, Anthem Lights and Phil Joel, to name a few. For more info, visit

Comprised of four gifted musicians, each from Orville, Ohio, Shine Bright Baby features Emily Irene on vocals, guitarist Nathan Fertig, Joshua Fink on keys, guitars and vocals, and Karl Wendel on drums. Friends before they were bandmates, Emily and Nathan began performing in 2007 amongst the local scene in both mainstream settings and Christian circles. Soon after, Joshua and Karl joined Emily and Nathan to complete the quartet, whose unique band name comes from Philippians 2. The inventive quartet released its anticipated debut project, Dreamers, in 2013 on BEC Recordings. For more info, visit
