Yahweh Collective Encourages You to “Speak Loud” at GoBU
Same night, same theme, different set. Yahweh Collective took to the same stage as with fellow label mate Chans Thomas to provide song responding to social justice for GoBU’s thematic Creative Liturgy event.
Personally I couldn’t believe Keeso was in the front on his feet after being shot at work just 4 weeks ago! Read that story here.
YC want you to know that this song is an answer to pain and frustration often found at the epicenter of the subject. True hope can be found even at the eye of any storm, the gospel provides sufficient answers that unifies. They believe that you will find true harmony in community if we speak up for peace instead of being silent with indifference.
In the video below YC perform an acoustic version of an original song called “Speak Loud”. I’m certain that you would love to hear a studio sometime in the future...and neither can I.
Yahweh Collective have their EP released planned for March. To get in on the news, events and exclusive content feel free to subscribe to their mailing list below. For those who comment, share like and more, thank you in advance.
I just came back from a much needed short family break, its great to pour yourself into your others and give them you! This experience really got us thinking. With the 2019 lent season upon us we would like to do something truly unique during the same period. The ToneCrafters label believe that we are called by the Creator to create for the community, that responsibility is a big deal for us, so in today’s blog we are giving away free music. These songs are currently available on all platforms, so they are still of value, however, we are freely giving away the songs below to inspire you to give away a piece of yourself to whomever you want with no strings attached! Sound like a good idea?
Episode #10 and this one is special. We interview UK Christian rapper ICIE in a special in depth interview about his brand new album Moment of Clarity. We discuss each song and what was his thoughts behind it. We’ve dug into the finer details to understand the man behind the music. To be a father, husband, and rapper, how does one balance?
If you are new to these blogs, my name is Calvin FOOD Venus, Im a producer, engineer, studio manager and CEO of ToneCrafters and everything you see is literally a dream to me. Welcome all.
Consider this a little pit stop from the content we’ve been putting out recently. Rest is good right?! Well thats what I keep telling myself…a self-confessed workaholic, who endeavors work heartedly, to be more efficient so I can love my wife and kids well. I find it very easy to wear multiple hats and I’m happiest serving quietly in the background. I love to network, love to wax lyrical about the amazing artists, musicians, producers and staff on the label, however, I hate talking about myself.
We are very very blessed here at ToneCrafters, dope artists, songwriters, producers, the engineer is ok lol (ahem that’s me) and the musicians. Today the spotlight is on Live Out Loud Band. A six piece band, working pros who have working with notable artists such as Tobe Nwigwe, Oshun, Kurk Whalum, Marvin Sapp, Kyle Turner, Solange Knowles, Mario, Willie D, Jim Gilstrap, Shawn Macklemore, Scarface and now our very own Chans Thomas.
Check out Episode #2 of The Re:Fill Podcast with the host Anthony B Mitchell who connects with singer Darris Sneed about his album Lost & Found, our soul star Chans Thomas and more! Plus they invited music tastemaker Derrick Tchie from Gospel Hydration to share 2 songs you need to hear! All that and more on the Re:Fill Podcast. Your Christian music journey starts here.
Messa Montana, Chans Thomas and now Speez has just released EPs from ToneCrafters. Twenty three songs, an hour and a half of music, three incredibly thought provoking and inspiring artists.
So we created a playlist of our Neo Soul and Hip Hop that we believe is a sound track to music fans who appreciate diversity in style yet maintaining a vibe of edifying music you can enjoy…so you can probably guess what i’m gonna say next…
We are a creative collective of artists, producers, musicians with a very simple aim, to honor God through our calling by any means necessary. As much as we love the feedback for our current works, we have a hunger and desire to give you our very best reflecting the undeserved grace that God has drenched us in. We encourage you to join us in this journey as we provide the soundtrack to our lives. So it may appear crazy that we about to release yet another EP, but allow me to explain why.
Since the release of Chans’ debut single “Inductive Reasoning” the response has been beyond all our expectations, we are incredibly grateful. How we managed to acquire fans as far out as in Australia is both exciting and intriguing? All this success makes me very excited to tell you what i’m about to announce in this blog. If you are a first time viewer of our blogs, hello, welcome, join us as we hope to document our journey into creator inspired creativity to the community.
We now at episode 9 and we dig into comments made by Christian Hip Hop artist Canon about the state of CHH in regards to the level of maturity and explicit in its music.
