Introducing: Silent Culture

New Jersey isn’t one of the biggest states in the country, in fact it’s one of the smaller ones. Despite that, it’s still large enough, in it’s own right, to inspire surprise that there aren’t more Christian musicians here who are willing and able to take their gifting beyond the four walls of the church.

Lil' Dre Posts 4 Tracks Ahead of "Live Free" Release

We’re hard at work on our review of Lil’ Dre’s upcoming album Live Free, but you can already check out four of the tracks from this landmark album through Dre’s Soundcloud page.

Live Free will drop next week, but while you’re on Dre’s soundcloud, you can also stream his previous effort Homework, which we gave a 5/5, especially noting how “Dissertation” may be one of the most honest and powerful songs out there. Continued →
