High Valley

High Valley 300

Their remote hometown of and the unique upbringing seem a magic combination for the music coming from High Valley. These two young men are making what the music industry in Nashville has called “singular,” “seminal,” and “a perfect mix of radio, revision, and respect.” Brad and Curtis Rempel like to call it “popgrass.” Growing up on a 1,400-acre farm in the far-northern reaches of Alberta, with music, farming and family as the basis of their entertainment, their musical language was formed at a very young age. Throughout their music career, High Valley has earned many accolades including 10 GMA Canada Covenant Awards, multiple CCMA Award and JUNO Award nominations, including recently winning CCMA's Group Of The Year. 

Brock Gill

Brock Gill 300

With a passion for reaching people with the Truth of the Gospel that had changed his own life as the catalyst, Brock Gill went back to college and began performing at church outreach events. News of his creative method of evangelism spread quickly and he began to receive invitations to perform almost immediately. Brock Gill delivers a memorable experience through his grand illusions, death-defying stunts, subtle comedy, and unique presentation of the Gospel.


Manafest 300

In a world where conformity is king and sticking with the status quo is often a well-honed survival instinct, four-time Dove Award nominee Manafest has always found contentment in doing his own thing.

And refusing to be anyone but himself has clearly served him—and his artistry well. Even on the heels of his wildly popular, bestselling album Fighter, Manafest refused to settle into a familiar, 'if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it' mentality when making the follow-up, The Moment. If anything, the Canadian-born and California-based artist and author was even more compelled to dig deeper both lyrically and creatively.


The City Harmonic

The City Harmonic 300

Named “One not to miss” by CCM Magazine in its year-end issue, and with upcoming RELEVANT and CCM Magazine features, Canada's own The City Harmonic is about “getting people in on the act—hearts pounding and feet moving.” Such hits as Manifesto, Praise The Lord, and A City on a Hill, as well as their latest single We Are One, are soaring anthems, crafted to include the listener.


The Color

The Color 300

It’s about more than the music, lights, or concerts for Canadian band, The Color. With God-given musical talent and the grit for touring, The Color make music to answer the question God puts to us all eventually: “What did you do with what I gave you?” In March of 2015, The Color released their most recent work, a five song EP ‘Eyes Wide Open’. These songs reveal a brave new sound and a maturity that is the result of four guys being continually reminded that it is God who provides the hope and strength we need to make it through each day.
