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.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
