It's a big week for the newsboys -- their 20th studio album, 'Stand' releases + 'The Jesus Music' hits theaters this Friday. We talked with Michael and Duncan about the new album, Michael's memories of dc Talk playing Billy Graham events in the 90s, the moment they knew CCM music was here to stay and more!
Former DC Talk member, Kevin Max has announced the upcoming release of his Revisiting This Planet project (vinyl due date Dec 18, 2020) in memory and honor of Larry Norman’s 1972 pioneering album Only Visiting This Planet.
Back in 2017 we were shooting a 'Features on Film' special with Sandi Patty and Michael Tait. As we were wrapping up the filming Sandy decided to fulfill her goal of rapping with the Newsboys/dc Talk vocalist!
Kevin Max is well aware of the cost of his chosen artistic path. Since his days as one third of Christian music's biggest band ever in dc Talk, Max has watched his former band mates continue to climb Christian charts either as solo artists (TobyMac) or frontmen for other bands (Michael Tait). All the while, Max has charted his own course, planting solo seeds for a blossoming catalog that shows off an impressive array of influences and command of material.
