S3:E29 Catholic Playlist Show #140

Every so often we like to have a little fun with our playlists. This week we lead off with a fun song simply titled “Sing Along” by David Casper. Aptly subtitled “Catholic Love Song”, if you’re a single person be prepared to sing along with the refrain as this song is for you. Lee Roessler just released a new album titled Coming Home and we debut the first single released from it titled “How Sweet the Sound”. Finally, we found a song from Sarah Hart’s new album Till the Song is Sung that we’re digging now titled “Source and Yield”. We hope you’ll like it too.

Others joining these great artists in the playlist include Chris Bray, Dave Moore, Emily Wilson, Ike Ndolo, Matt Faley and others.

S3:E28 Catholic Playlist Show #139

Featuring Alanna Boudreau, E.P.I.C. the Band, and Mike Mangione

We found new music for you in this week’s Catholic Playlist Show. Episode #139 brings you music from Alanna Boudreau’s new album Champion and a new group, E.P.I.C. the Band, suggested we give their music a spin, and after sampling it, we’re happy to oblige. We haven’t heard from Mike Mangione & The Union in quite a while, so we you’ll hear “Are We Going To Rise?” to fix that problem. And we picked songs we haven’t played before from the FOCUS Worship team (“Sing My Love/Like An Avalanche”), Taylor Tripodi (“Forgiven”) and Mathias Michael (“How Great Thou Art”).

Next week you can look forward to new music from Aly Aleigha’s new album “The Labyrinth” and Lee Roessler’s new album “How Sweet The Sound.”
