Carman is gearing up for a new CD project.  He launched a Kickstarter campaign April 19 with the goal to raise $200,000.  Following the campaign’s end June 18, $538,103 was raised, more than doubling his goal and solidly becoming the second most successful Kickstarter music project ever.  It’ll fund his first album in 10 years.

The Afters are back on the road this fall, hoping to tour with Building 429 and Hawk Nelson. Lead singer, Josh says "We are planning a really fun fall tour with our friends Building 429. Jason (singer of Building 429) have been talking about doing a tour together for four years, so we are finally doing it. We are going to have Hawk Nelson come along with us, they are great friends and will be a great addition to the tour too. So it's going to be a awesome line-up"

Ben Calhoun from Citizen Way (“Nothing Ever [Could Separate Us]”) shares his biggest “God moment:”  "In 7th grade my youth pastor challenged me to trade the time I was spending on "dating" for one year of daily Bible reading. It improved my life so drastically that I continued that lifestyle until I met my wife the first day of my senior year at Judson. Alison totally swept me off my feet that I couldn't imagine life without her. My parents told me that if I didn't marry her they were gonna kick me out of the family and adopt her. We met and married in 361 days. We often look back and see how He orchestrated it all. It's pretty cool."

Dree Rumond is a big fan of Amy Grant.  She shared the singer’s latest project on her popular Pioneer Woman blog.

Love & The Outcome were recently featured in Billboard's "Bubbling Under" feature on new and noteworthy acts.  Their first CD comes out August 27.  The group is made up of husband and wife team Jodi King and Chris Rademaker.  The duo sold their Winnipeg condo en route to a high-stakes musical road trip that has seen them criss-cross Canada, Liberia, the Philippines and China.
