Bethlehem, PA (August 13, 2015) -, one of the pioneers of Christian music media on the web that has helped to pave the way for similar media outlets, is celebrating 19 years online today. To celebrate, the JFH team is releasing the next installment of their popular free indie mp3 compilation, Songs We've Been Trying To Tell You About (And Others We Haven't), Volume Five. The biggest JFH compilation to date -- offering 53 songs and artists -- is the first to feature original cover artwork drawn by JFH founder and Editor-in-Chief, John DiBiase. Fans can also enter to win limited edition numbered prints of the artwork as part of the site's anniversary celebration. (Click here to enter the contest!). Additional prints are available for purchase in DiBiase's online art shop to help support JFH.

Like each compilation before it, Songs We've Been Trying To Tell You About, Volume Five is comprised of artists that the JFH staff personally invited to be a part of the project. In most cases, it has been left up to the artist to select the individual song to be featured on the compilation--with a few exceptions where they left it up to the JFH team to make the call.

Among the artists represented on Songs We've Been Trying To Tell You About (And Others We Haven't), Volume Five include House of Heroes, Fireflight, Jars of Clay, Kevin Max, Gungor, Remedy Drive, Ellie Holcomb, Ayiesha Woods, Lights Go Down (featuring Hawk Nelson's Jason Dunn), brand new songs from Justin McRoberts and WILKES that have not been previously released, Audrey Assad, Copperlily, The Wedding's Matt Shelton, a reunion single from Poor Old Lu, Playdough, The Gray Havens, Sam Ock, The Lost Days of Summer (featuring Guardian's Jamie Rowe), Robbie Seay Band and many more!

Longtime JFH staff writer Scott Fryberger says about the project, "The music industry is so different than it was ten years ago. Heck, even five. Independent music is a well-established market, with very well-known artists doing it on their own again. But there are a lot of them that are still unknown. We want to shine some light on the scene and introduce people to artists they may have never heard of before; maybe even a new favorite!"

"I love that this is becoming an annual event," adds DiBiase. "I can't think of a better way to express our gratitude to the artists and our faithful readers than to give these compilations out and hopefully help music fans find new artists to get excited about."
