Number ones (Sparrow Records) FOR FANS OF: Point of Grace, 4HIM, Natalie Grant, Greg Long
QQQQ This streamlined hits collection is truly the
group’s ideal one
stop shop. All the key singles show up (“Testify To Love,”
“Can’t Live A Day,” “Always Have, Always Will”), though more than a particular tune, fans are most likely to fawn over the group’s joyful and downright heavenly harmonies.

Lights of Distant Cities
(BEC Recordings) FOR FANS OF: Aaron Shust, Caedmon’s Call, Jason Gray QQQQ
Bebo Norman’s latest album was borne out of what Norman calls, “a long, slow
progression, or digression, into a spiritual desert.” His vulnerability serves him well, especially on songs, “At The End of Me,” and “Collide.” Lights of Distant Cities
is a testament to the goodness of the Lord, and the beauty of tangible songwriting.

starting Line eP (Word) FOR FANS OF: Jason Mraz, Chris August, Jack Johnson QQQQ
“American Idol” favorite turned blockbuster recording artist Jason Castro
gives fans a sneak peak of his third full length Only A Mountain (out January 15) with this instantly infectious EP. The five track offering shines with retro pop sensibility, the singer/songwriter’s easygoing croon and edifying but simultaneously seeker sensitive lyrics that chronicle his proactive faith journey.

When heaven Came Down
(Music For Missions/Ingram Distribution) FOR FANS OF: Neil Young, Steven Curtis Chapman QQQ
This collection of carefully curated songs from Michael Milton is
perfect for the upcoming Christmas season. Many of the songs (including “Oh How Tender Was The Man” with its lilting piano backing) are also appropriate year-round.
