Free Christmas Song
“Angles We Have Heard (Love Forever Reigns)”
Available Now!

Award-winning Canadian worship artist and songwriter Jon Bauer will be releasing his fourth worship album, Forevermore, in the U.S. January 3rd. The project, which originally released in Canada this past May, will be Bauer’s U.S. debut. Produced by 2010’s Dove-Award winning producer Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Meredith Andrews), Forevermore is comprised of ten tracks, eight written or co-written by Bauer.
“My heart is to encourage people that worship is more than music,” Bauer shares. “It’s a lifestyle, and it’s a choice. We need to look for ways to serve God and serve others, representing Him to this hurting world.”

Forevermore is already seeing success around the world as Bauer has recently shared his new songs on tour around Europe, Canada and the States. His single, “Chasing After Me,” hit No. 1 on the Canadian Christian Charts, and Forevermore released to iTunes on Oct. 11. The album, already available on iTunes, made its debut on iTunes’ New and Noteworthy section of the Christian homepage. Check out the album here. Be sure to also visit his site to download his free Christmas song, “Angels We Have Heard (Love Forever Reigns),” available during this the holiday season.

Bauer, a five-time nominee for 2011’s GMA Canada’s Covenant Awards, continues his versatility as an artist by recently releasing his second children’s album. Titled Come And Save Us Kids Worship: Volume 2, the project just released November 15th. For more information about Jon Bauer, please contact Stacie Vining at Stacie@Mergepr.com.

HM Magazine Turns 35

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. 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.

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.
