Cafinated Reads is hosting another CD review! I am so happy to talk about this today on the blog. Here’s more about the CD I’m reviewing.
Since signing to BEC Recordings in 2001, Kutless has transformed from a new rock band to a
staple artist in the industry that has multi-format, top-charting hits, sold millions of records and
more than eight million streams. Launched by original members Jon Micah Sumrall (lead vocals)
and guitarist James Mead, the band formed first as a modern rock/worship band at Warner
Pacific College in Portland in 2000. Kutless has two RIAA Gold-selling albums for
Live from Portland .
The band has had 12 No. 1 radio singles across all formats including
their major hits “Strong Tower,” “What Faith Can Do” and “Carry Me To The Cross.”
After more than 15 years together and reaching fans around the world, Kutless continues to be
focused on sharing the Gospel with a younger generation that is searching for answers.
“We really believe that music can make a difference in people’s lives,” shares Jon Micah Sumrall.
“Music is an incredibly powerful tool that can break down walls and allow us to communicate a
message of hope to people who may not listen otherwise. We are still recording and performing
because we really do believe it makes a difference. We hear stories all the time from people
who share with us how a concert or a song has radically impacted their life, and it’s these types
of testimonies that keep us going year after year.”
In 2012, Kutless formed EOTA Ministries (End of The Age) to expand their evangelistic outreach
around the globe. EOTA is the non-profit arm that aids Kutless in hosting large, free outreach
concerts and events. In 2015, they partnered with other organizations to bring concerts to Kiev,
Ukraine and other cities for six events – the largest of their kind in that country. The next year,
Kutless returned to 11 cities in Ukraine as well as in Belarus, a communist country, where more
than 100,000 heard the Gospel and over 40,000 commitments to Christ.
With their upcoming album
ALPHA / OMEGA , Kutless has created a collection of rock and
worship songs of both original and cover tracks that are true to who the band has been for the
last 17 years. They wanted to create a project that would engage the Christian community and
have the greatest impact. The songs are true to who the band is at their core – rock and worship.
ALPHA / OMEGA
features a new version of “Strong Tower” as well as the debut radio single
“King of My Heart.”
Another CD review, so it will be short, simple and to the point. Go get this CD. Right now. Do not wait. Why? Because I am new to this group, but this CD had me raising my hands in praise with the songs, had my heart opening up and letting the love of God pour straight in. I have had a rough two months with my husband in the hospital, then having surgery and then my grandmother passing away right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Needless to say, I was needing a soul revival, so to speak, and Kutless’ CD did just that. I feel renewed and thankful for all the Lord does for me. If you want a 5 star CD that will move you, lift you up, and remind that you are worthy, then look no further than Alpha/Omega. Bravo, Kutless! I can’t wait to get another CD by these talented singers!
