Instrumental CEDM track. It's the story of the artist that is key here...

Artist Bio:

While perusing through a music store with a couple of his Jamaican DJ friends, SMOOTHY spied out this little audio unit called a Roland MC303. Both his buddies knew what it was , but this was new to him. After being just flabbergasted by what it could do, and seeing that it was on clearance SMOOTHY bought it.

“I took it home and couldn’t stop messin’ with it. I would end up playing some small venues/gatherings and not much more. I would eventually outgrow the little unit and sell it to some young buck who wanted to play house parties”.

At about the same time, SMOOTHY became increasingly disturbed by the lack of morals in the music industry and even more disturbed that Christ Followers were listening to music that he considered filthy and vain.

“That’s when I got the bug and went totally digital. I started buying loop-packs and VSTs, ASTs (anything I could get my hands on. I had a DJ background when an unbeliever, so it just kind of fit when I started pumping out songs.”

A bit of a closet metal head, I produced a whole Industrial/electronica metal album, vocals and all, only to lose three years work in a computer crash (and no back up!). Lesson learned.”

“An identity is what I’ve fumbled with as I made music. I went totally electronic (non-metal) under the name DJgSmoothy.”

“Then I changed the name to The New Amalgamation of Sound. Then I went back to DJgSmoothy. After fifteen songs on and off Spotify, I went back to my roots and reclaimed the name the Jamaicans used to call me: SMOOTHY.”

“I make music now to move you, and as I do there may be more than one genre per song. I’ve got a ton of officially unreleased stuff on SoundCloud at the moment. I like that my music doesn’t really fit just one style. I’d hate to become a sellout and make something that sounds like everything else out there.”

(SMOOTHY is a Pastor who is originally from Western Canada; raised by a Canadian father and an Australian mother. He now lives in Southern Texas with his wife and three crazy teenage kids.)

You Stayed - Natalie Grace

Title: You Stayed Artist: Natalie Grace Genre: CCM Release date: March 15, 2024 Type of release: Single Source: Artist Story: There would be no resurrection if Jesus hadn’t finished the work on the cross. He could have called a legion of angels to rescue him but he was committed to the sacrifice that would bring us salvation. This song is an anthem celebrating His love and mercy! This song was actually inspired by my daughter. When she was real young, I read the story about Jesus dying on the cross from one of her storybook Bibles, It talked about how he could have rescued himself— he didn’t have to endure the suffering but he chose to stay bc he loved us and knew it was the only way for us to be saved, Her sweet little voice just kept asking me, “He stayed???” I thought it was so powerful since we spend a lot of time singing about how he didn’t stay in the grave. Yet there could be no resurrection without him staying and finishing the work on the cross. So it’s a reflection on hi

Deep: The Journey - Yemi Alafifuni

Title: Deep: The Journey Artist: Yemi Alafifuni Genre: CCM Release date: March 1st, 2024 Source:  Artist Story: Writing ‘Deep’ was a journey of thoughts, questions and ecstatic discovery of God’s love. About two years ago, I was in deep thoughts and had many questions for my Father. Asking these questions loudly or in company of believers could be construed as being ungrateful or doubtful. But they were questions about my call and I secretly demanded answers. Round about this time, I reluctantly attended our mid-week bible study session on a Wednesday and my pastor’s wife (Pastor Gloria) was teaching on Love. In this session, she taught on Ephesians 3:17-19 especially on vs 18 where she began to explain what the dimensions of God’s love looked like. My love language is love in its purest form so I was super attentive and captivated at the same time. It was as though it was my first time hearing about love, true and pure. This captivated my heart and suddenly I felt a flood of light
