New Christian rock recording artist Ron Lewerke has just released his new single ‘Free Man’- and it’s animated entirely in the medium of Flash.

The song is an infectious, upbeat Christian pop song with a killer hook and just a touch of gospel, Queen-style… one of those choruses you can’t get out of your head.

“I’m also a trained Flash and multimedia developer, so I decided to have a bit of fun with this one”, said Ron. “I did all of the instrumental and vocal parts in the song, so I decided to play all the parts in the video- as sunglass-wearing bobbleheads. The video has a goofy, almost Monty Python-ish feel to it. And it was a ton of fun to do!”

Believe me, you’ll enjoy this tune- and the video!

Some of Ron’s past musical creds:

* Showcased at the Whisky in LA for producer Tom Werman (Cheap Trick, Motley Crue)
* Showcased SXSW in Austin TX
* Opened for Foreigner to 20,000 at Sandstone Ampitheater- KC
* Written and recorded on 7 independently-produced albums ranging from metal to new age

And of course, Free Man (and the rest of Ron’s catalog) is available on iTunes, Rhapsody, Emusic, and many other eStores. For all information, go to the Ron Lewerke website:

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
