So with Parachute done and dusted (seriously, that dust was cruel this year), you might've missed some of the albums that Kiwi artists released over the weekend. Let me help with that.
The Ember Days - More Than You Think
One of the best worship albums you will hear this year. These guys know what they're doing - and do it oh so well! Free from comeandlive.com or buy it on iTunes and support them.
Edge Kingsland - Vol. 2 | due north
Local worship from one of the best collections of musicians and songwriters Auckland has. You'll listen to this on repeat for hours. Meant to be on iTunes by the end of the week.
Late 80s Mercedes - Diamonds EP
Always a Parachute Festival favourite, the guys have released a new collection of songs. Some originals, some new covers - get it on iTunes or Spotify and enjoy a little more summer.
This week on Homegrown we’re coming to you from Parachute 2013. With our picks of who you should catch if you’re there and songs from those who are, just in case you’re not…
Made with the help of NZ On Air, it’s Homegrown, Friday Nights at 11 on Life FM.
Listen below for the audio.
Fresh out of the Parachute camp, Leeland (the frontman), from Leeland (the band) will be fronting Parachute band at Parachute 2013! If you're a PB fan you'd know that Omega recently moved on to focus on marriage and his church community. They've also added Levi The Poet to the lineup, he replaces Listener, who was unable to make it to festival. More reason to get in before Parachute 2013 sells out! Check out the full article at Parachute's site.
Want some free music? iTunes NZ have listed Tigertown's single "Morning Has Finally Come" as the Single Of The Week so you can download the song free now.
It's off their album Before The Morning and you can catch them live at Parachute 2013!
THIS WEEK'S Behind The Music segment is TOO EXCITING!
Nikki and George put the spotlight on Christian rapper who's tearing up charts, Lecrae.
Lecrae was once a drug dealer living a pretty messed-up life. Now, having been transformed by God's grace, he’s rapping about Jesus and aims to bring hope through his music.
Can't get enough? Come to Parachute 2013 to see him perform and keep listening to Life FM for his jams!
Last night, Dan and Luke & Joel from Parachute Music announced the major headliners for Parachute 2013.
Added to Switchfoot & Newsboys, we've got Lecrae, FamilyForceFive, HillsongUnited, OhSleeper, Tigertown, NewEmpire, SherynBinks and plenty of kiwis including the one-time-only reunion of Mumsdollar!!
But be warned - ticket sales are capped at 17,500, and the first tier of pricing has just sold out - get to iticket.co.nz and claim yours before they run out!
