On January 26, Carlos Whittaker, the blogger, officially becomes Carlos Whittaker, recording artist, when he makes his Integrity Music debut with the release of a digital EP.  (A full CD will release to both retail and digital channels on April 27.)
Whittaker’s blog Ragamuffin Soul (http://www.ragamuffinsoul.com/) has gained a worldwide following and earned Whittaker a reputation as a thoughtful, creative and provocative voice in the Christian community.  Ragamuffinsoul.com has become a must-stop online destination for believers around the world where Whittaker bares his soul while creating a dynamic two-way environment where thousands of people share their thoughts, ideas, and insights.
And while music has always been in the picture, the EP and forthcoming CD now provide a soundtrack for the Ragamuffin community.  Whittaker, who has been a songwriter and worship leader for more than a decade, has served at Sandals Church in Riverside, California and Buckhead Church in Atlanta and uses his talents with high-profile churches and conferences such as Catalyst, Story, North Point Ministries and Saddleback Church to name a few.
Whittaker’s music will be an extension of both parts of his story.  Whittaker’s skills as a communicator are reflected in authentic lyrics that chronicle his own spiritual journey while his work as a worship leader enables Whittaker to create music that will help move his generation to find and experience God.
The Carlos Whittaker digital EP features three new songs co-written by Whittaker and Dove Award-winning songwriter and the recording’s producer Jason Ingram, including “We Will Worship.”
Hillsong’s Mia Fieldes helped pen “Jesus Saves,” “Rain It Down” is co-written by Phillip Larue and has been serviced as Whittaker’s first radio single.  The EP will also feature chord charts for each song.
Whittaker’s EP will be available at major DSPs including iTunes, Amazon.com, Napster, Rhapsody and many more as well as at www.integritymusic.com.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then.
