S5:E5 Catholic Playlist Show – #189

St Patrick's Day Wins the Playlist

Catholic Playlist Show #189

This weekend features the feast of St Patrick on Saturday, March 17, 2018, so we thought some Irish music would be appropriate for the playlist this week. This is the only time you’ll hear this music! Scythian leads off the playlist with “Fields of St James”, followed by “Jigsaw” later on. Seasons gives us “King of the Faeries” and “Dalriada/Song of Saint Patrick”, Joe Zambon offers an “Irish Jig”, and of course playlist regular Ceili Rain is in the mix with “The King & I”.

While the Irish music dominates the first half of the playlist, you’ll enjoy selections from artists like The Mosleys, Audrey Assad, Ricky Vazquez and The Vigil Project.

Featuring New Artist Corrie Marie

Catholic Playlist #188

We’re back this week with another new show to share the joy of the Gospel through the power of music. And for the first time in quite some time, we have a new featured artist! We found out about Corrie Marie recently as her PledgeMusic campaign was winding down for her debut album. After making a pledge towards her project we were able to sample one of her songs, “Humble Host”, and we knew we had to share this talented artist with you. Look for her debut in the second segment of the show.

The rest of the playlist features selections from Mathias Michael, Teresa Peterson, Rita West, Out of Darkness and others. We picked “Falling Down” from Lee Roessler to include, and we had to play “Were You There” by Dante Schmitz, one of our favorite songs for Lent.

New Featured Artist: Corrie Marie

Debut Album Coming in 2018

Corrie Marie

In Catholic Playlist Show #188 we’re pleased to introduce you to Corrie Marie, our new featured artist. We found out about Corrie Marie recently as her PledgeMusic campaign was winding down for her debut album. After making a pledge towards the project we were able to sample one of her songs, “Humble Host”, and we knew we had to share this talented artist with you.

The bio from her website www.corriemariemusic.com says Corrie “is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, where she grew up singing whenever the mood struck and began writing her own songs at 12 years old. She actively started pursuing her music career at 23 when she set aside her day job to lead worship and a couple of years later she wears a few hats as a singer/songwriter, worship leader, and personal trainer. In all these things she finds that the Lord is always teaching her about her own humanity and how to see herself in other people. When writing, elements of the human experience are broken open and it’s in the music that she is able to learn more about God and more about herself.”

“Corrie has lead worship for her parish, Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Ellicott City, Md for the past 3 years and she travels to retreats and conferences to speak and lead worship and has sung for the National ChristLife Conference for the past two years. After winning the David Initiative, a contest by Catholic Creatives, Corrie was the opening act for AbbeyFest in 2017.”

And now, she’s set to release her debut album soon, and we were lucky to get a early peek at one of those songs and it’s perfect for our playlist. Be sure to check out “Humble Host” in the second segment of Catholic Playlist Show #188!

Catholic Playlist Worship #109

Welcome to the last Catholic Playlist Worship show of 2017! We’ve reached the fourth Sunday in Advent, which means that Christmas and birth of Christ is very near. In fact, the 4th week of Advent this year is only 1 day – Christmas Eve. Certainly unusual, but that doesn’t stop us from putting together another playlist of great music, music you’ve been hearing over the last several weeks. So I invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the music.

We’ll be back again in 2018 with more great music and brand new shows. God bless you and Merry Christmas!
