LIFE HAS A FUNNY WAY OF TAKING US TO UNEXPECTED PLACES
It stops and starts, twists and turns. One minute we're totally in our comfort zone, the next we're being tossed in to the deep end. That has certainly been the experience of Jared Wrennall and Matt Ruys.
Matt and Jared got to know each other through mutual friends in the local music scene. And, being in a similar head space both mentally and spiritually, eventually decided to write music together. Both agree something "very natural and unforced happened" when they sat down for their first writing session. So natural in fact that at the end of a weekend in a beach house in New Zealand's isolated Ngunguru they had a bunch of new songs in need of a home. It was clear soon after that they already had one...
George is in the Philippines with the TEAR Fund Missions Dream Team! Day 1 the team visited a slum in Manilla and the International Justice Mission - George has a chat to our BTI Teacher Sam about how the experience has affected him so far. Listen below.

I promised the Maleficant trailer yesterday and never put it up :-( but, being late that means i can put a couple of newer ones in as well. So it all works out! First things first...

Hurricane Kids are a pop band hailing from Auckland, on a singular mission: to blow your speakers up!
After the release of their debut single "Tonight" in November 2012, Hurricane Kids were quick to release their debut EP which landed on to the NZ Charts, and it doesn't stop there.
Since then Hurricane Kids have kept hard at work, they released another single "Over", shot a video for it, have played numerous school shows, supported international pop punk band All Time Low at The Powerstation, all while preparing for this new single, Wake Up The World.
Produced by NZ's leading pop producer Gladius (Dane Rumble, Stan Walker, Titanium)
"Wake Up the World" is a summer anthem just waiting to happen.
The band is currently in the process of shooting a video for this song which is set for release later in the month. Watch this space
In May of 2012 Matt Tan had this revelation: Songs don't record themselves.
After years of song-writing and being involved in a number of bands he decided it was time to stop wishing, and take a risk. Thus began Yoyomo.
Enlisting the help on his friend and producer Jono Wilson, Matt began planning a trip to Auckland from his home in Wellington, NZ.
Using Skype, Facebook, email, FaceTime, Dropbox and good old telephone, Matt was able to work all the pre-production with his friends in Auckland. Files were sent back and forth as ideas were thrashed out.
"The first time I was in the room with the boys was on the day we stepped into record at Roundhead Studios." said Matt, "It could have gone horribly wrong, but it's a credit to the boys it didn't. They were prepared, and somehow we knocked out all 7-tracks in a day."
The journey has begun.
Check out this brand new tune and video from Kye Kye, the song is 'Honest Affection' off their new album 'Fantasize' - We're loving this tune, and looking forward to seeing these guys at Parachute 2014!
Featuring Stan Walker, Ginny Blackmore, Benny Tipene, and more!
We've had a few questions about why Life FM is playing the new Coldplay song Atlas... we'll play some non-christian artists if we feel the message of the song fits with the sound and mission of the station. The Mission of RBG is to connect kiwis to Christ through media, or in our case, radio - through what we talk about and what music we play. I really like this tune, the lyrics, the music - its epic, and I know when you go through hard times, God totally 'carries your world' - I guess thats part of why I love it, i've totally been there, who hasn't... and this line is universal - 'Show me the way, Lord, 'cause I, I'm about to explode' (apart from the exploding bit!)

the ultimate home theatre... although I would have gone for a bigger screen - with a more modern look, for my scifi movies if i had to nitpick! this is still pretty cool!
Ceder has been together for a year now and is mainly an originals band. We have played at Battle of the bands and made it up to the regional finals in Wellington and have performed various gigs locally in Palmerston North. We won a local music competition in Palmerston North that entitled us to do a recording with Tiki Taane. We have recorded the single and Tiki has currently just finished producing the song. The song is titled 'My Prayer' and is our first official single. We play fairly heavy sort of music but try to be more melodic than anything, in the genre of Hard Rock. The band consists of Ben Baker (lead guitar), Luke Pearce (bass), Campbell Greig (drums), Lyle Greig (rhythm guitar, vocals).
