I have two brand-new music CDs to tell you about along with a giveaway of each of them!

Kutless, "Believer"
After a successful 2009 release that spawned the mega-hit single “What Faith Can Do,” Kutless has released a new studio album titled "Believer" (BEC Recordings). The album is produced by Grammy-nominated Chris Stevens as well as David Garcia (TobyMac, Mandisa, Carrie Underwood) and Dave Lubben (worship leader, Kutless). With over two million albums sold, a RIAA Gold-selling album, AC Song of the Year in 2010, and 11 No. 1 radio singles, Kutless has transformed from that new rock band from Oregon to the one new bands look up to, the band whose music is all over the radio in multiple formats and on major tours. "Believer" finds Kutless using a decade of growth to deliver an expertly crafted set of songs with as much diversity in the music as there is consistency in the message. This album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart during street week as well as No. 1 on iTunes Christian Albums.

Although Kutless can sometimes be a bit more rowdy and energetic than I personally prefer, this album has some great songs with phenomenal lyrics. The very first song, If It Ends Today, grabbed my attention from the first lines - "Seems like the end is coming, Seems like the signs are lining up. . . ." But my absolute favorite song is simply titled "Even If" which includes lines such as
Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are
Even if the healing doesn't come
And life falls apart. . . .
(Written by S. Krippayne & Tony Wood)
A baker's dozen of solid songs such as these makes it easy to see why this album landed at the top of charts immediately upon its release!

Adam Cappa, "The Rescue"
BEC Recordings’ is thrilled to announce the release of the LP from freshman artist Adam Cappa. He released his this full-length label debut, "The Rescue." This budding artist can be seen touring with his label-mate, mentor and co-producer Jeremy Camp on the “We Cry Out” tour currently on the road. "The Rescue" is his label debut, but his third career album. Cappa enlisted producer Andy Dodd as well as the aftermentioned Camp, who has been involved in Cappa’s career from the beginning. A vocalist, guitarist, performer, young songwriter and communicator through and through, Adam Cappa is ready to share his heart. It all started when Adam got involved with Young Life after accepting Christ as a sophomore in high school. Fast-forward a few years and two independent records later, Cappa is focused on his passion for ministry.

This is a great CD, and I'll be listening for them to play it on the radio. A variety of songs comprise this album, ranging from worship songs directed to the Lord to songs of personal conviction and commitment to songs of instruction/edification. The style is similar to that of his mentor, Jeremy Camp, which is a definite plus for me! I predict we will be hearing more from Adam Cappa in the months and years to come.

The publicist has authorized me to give away 1 of these CDs to two of you. One will receive the Kutless CD and one will receive Adam Cappa's CD. To enter, leave a oomment on this post by 8 PM CDT this Sunday (5/20/12) and I will draw two winners. US Residents only, please.

If we get to pick, I would LOVE to be entered for Adam CAppa's CD. LOVE finding new artists. I always write to music and some artists just have that "something" that enables me to write a little better. He sounds like an artists in that category for me.
