For pop worship band I AM THEY, believing in God’s faithfulness is an active exercise in trust. After years of member transition and internal uncertainty with how or even why to move forward, they are leaning on Hebrews 10:23 – “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who is promised is faithful.” The band – made up of Matt Hein (vocals, guitar), Abbie Parker, (vocals), Brandon Chase (vocals, guitar), Justin Shinn (keys) and Nicole Hickman (drums) – poured the challenges of the past, hope for the future and a newfound joy for the present into their third album, Faithful God. More than a collection of new songs, Faithful God is a look back and a look forward, a declaration of promises kept and promises yet to come .The album’s first single, aptly titled “Faithful God,” speaks to those familiar times of confusion, times when you aren’t sure what next step to take, but just as quickly confirms that beyond all hope, God hasn’t let go. The story isn’t over.
From Bristol, VA, Aaron Cole was selected as a part of the Rapzilla's 2016 Freshman Class. Cole knew early on that music was his passion and calling.

Earning him the title “The World’s 1st 4 year old Gospel Rapper. The release of Jesus is the Rock opened up numerous opportunities for Aaron. Aaron's father, Kelly Cole was a "gospel rapper" himself which sort of accelerated Aaron's draw to music.
Most are unaware, but Cole has put out a total of six indpendent projects since those preschool days. However, Cole is known for his EP release from 2016 titled If I Can Be Honest as sort of his introduction to Christian hip-hop (CHH). His dad serves as his current manager to date.

Pop recording artist and singer-songwriter Branan Murphy is no stranger to the stage. While in high school, Henry “Hank” Branan Murphy began writing songs and singing in his church. By age 18, he devoted himself to a career in music and spent the next several years performing at events all over the U.S., even releasing two independent projects. In 2011, the Louisville, GA native relocated to Raleigh-Durham, NC and began writing his own brand of “conscious pop” songs. He soon released SMPLFY, a mixtape showing off his skills as a vocalist, rapper, songwriter and producer. Piquing the interest of several record labels, he ultimately signed with Sony’s Provident Label Group.
Upon first listen, it’s easy to see that singer-songwriter-guitarist Coby James possesses the instincts and song craft of a seasoned veteran. It’s when you learn that at the ripe old age of 18 years old, he also produces, writes and performs on all of his recordings that you truly grasp the vast potential in front of him. Indeed, the precocious gun-slinger has already performed on a national tour with Grammy nominated and Dove Award winner Danny Gokey (of American Idol fame), signed with indie label Centricity (Lauren Daigle, Jordan Feliz) and released two self produced EPs. The self-described workaholic even graduated high school early to focus on a career in music.
The Dove nominated pioneer has served in various capacities from producer, to syndicated radio host, to compilation curator. Maj is also an original member of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band. His Dj solos have become a staple in Toby’s sets to an average 300,000 concert goers annually across 18 years. Maj states, "The emergence of the DJ in pop culture is an on-time fit for me. The DJ IS THE BAND now! The content we create overflows to the live environment and is multi-generational. These past years working closer with Toby has given me a space to fine-tune my gifts while gaining a greater understanding of the responsibility of having a global platform. It’s humbling when someone of his stature gives you direct interaction with his fans. It's a loyal fan base who expects nothing less than your best! I've also learned that creativity doesn't have to be this or that. I can use all of my skillsets. This generation’s music fans are ok with you having more than one talent. So, there's no [box].
