JCTV, a Christian youth network designed for the 13-30 age group, is part of Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). “1 Music Village,” a JCTV exclusive weekly show, highlights the best in contemporary Christian music. Each week’s program is a mini-concert, featuring a band or artist who hosts the program and showcases a handful of tunes from their latest project. To watch a live stream, go to jctv.org or tune into your local television station (jctv.org/updates).

About Brandon Bee:
Well known as a producer and a sought-after worship leader at churches and conferences across the country, Brandon Bee’s unique brand of pop/rock worship music has earned him a growing legion of fans. His Surrendered EP debuted on iTunes’ “New & Noteworthy” section and landed in the Top 20 on the iTunes Christian Albums chart. His debut full-length project, This Is The Revolution, has garnered critical acclaim from media outlets such as iTunes, Christian Musician Magazine, CCMMagazine.com and Christianitytoday.com.

iTunes states, “Best known as a Christian music producer, Brandon Bee steps out as a singer/songwriter on 2009’s thoroughly likable This Is The Revolution…Bee is vivid and convincing.”

“One of the more striking debut efforts in recent memory, Bee firmly establishes the artistic reputation that his previous production work only hinted at with This Is The Revolution,” says Christian Musician Magazine.

Bee’s behind-the-scenes credits include development work for many of the music industry’s top companies, including Geffen Records, Sony BMG Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group. He first came to the attention of the production world under the mentorship of producer Lou Carto (Randy Travis, B.B. King) and Dove Award-nominated Christian artist/producer Morgan Cryar. After moving back to the Northwest from Nashville, Bee began producing bands in Seattle’s growing Christian music scene and traveling throughout the U.S. and Canada to produce artists including Amber Pacific, Jaime Jamgochian, Benjiman, Juno Award nominee/Island Award winner Matthew James, Grammy Award nominee/Dove Award winner Stacie Orrico, 2009 Immerse winner Jake Brothers and indie folk-pop rising star Beth Whitney. Bee most recently produced Circleslide’s exciting new CD, Echoes of the Light.

Brandon Bee’s Inside These Walls will be available April 5, 2011 on Save the City Records, a division of Rain On Me Productions, LLC, and will be distributed through Provident-Integrity Distribution.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
