Lots of great new music coming in 2018, but until then let’s enjoy some Advent and Christmas music, including songs from Matt Maher, Josh Blakesley, Jaime Thietten, The Vigil Project, and leading off is a soon to be released single from Aly Aleigha – “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent”

We go back a few years to Marie Miller’s song 6’2″, which has a strong Theology of Body theme to it, and right up to the present with a new track from Rita West’s debut EP Chosen. Other artists appearing in the playlist include Dante Schmitz, Michael James Mette, Alverlis, Danielle Noonan, Josh Blakesley Band and more.

New music from Alob and Cody Roth

Catholic Playlist Show #178

Last week’s show was a bonanza of just released or never played before music on the show. We would’ve had almost all new music last week if we hadn’t forgot a couple tracks in the selection process. Therefore my oversight leads to 3 new selections in this week’s episode, including a beautiful ballad by Rebecca Roubion from back in 2014.

Alob No Match For LoveThe brand new music comes from Cody Roth with a single called Jesus I Trust in You, and Alob releases a full length album titled No Match for Love and you’ll hear the title track lead off the last segment of the show. This music is surrounded by many of your favorite performers including Connor Flanagan, Ricky Vazquez, Greg&Lizzy, Chris Bray, Mathias Michael and more.

Song List
Alob – “No Match for Love” Amazon iTunes
Rebecca Roubion – “Here Lies My Pulse” Amazon iTunes

Teresa Peterson – “He Makes All Things New” Amazon iTunes

S4:E26 Catholic Playlist – #177

Hear the latest from Matt Maher, Pontifex

Catholic Playlist Show #177

I took a few weeks off from producing shows to do something a little more important, like being ordained a permanent deacon in the diocese of Toledo:

It was truly a blessed day and one I will never forget.

The good news about not producing a new show for a few weeks is that this show is stuffed full of new music released during this time. As I mentioned last week, Matt Maher’s new album Echoes is out and it’s crazy good as you might expect. Mikey Needleman and John Finch also have new albums, and Shaun Garrison released a new single too.

Pontifex Letters from the WastelandBut my favorite new release comes from Pontifex, who’s album Letters from the Wasteland, Vol 1 is a tour de force of Catholic hip hop. Fans of this genre of music need to get this music in their ears, and if you have young people in your life give them this music. It may reach them in a way that no other kind of music can. I picked “New Day” to share in the playlist because it has the best sound for Catholic radio, a place where hip hop/rap is never heard. Enjoy!

Song List
Shaun Garrison – “All Shall Be Well” Amazon iTunes
Pontifex – “New Day (feat Jessica Ashley Karpov)” Amazon iTunes
Matt Maher – “Faithfulness (feat Steffany Gretzinger)” Amazon iTunes
Pasquale Talarico – “All Things New” Amazon iTunes

Debut of The Mosleys

We’re going a little bit folk with episode #175 of the Catholic Playlist this week, headlined by The Mosleys, our new featured artist.

We followed that up with “Help Me Mary” from Daniel Rolf and “Good Shepherd” from Brother Isaiah for a distinctly folk music vibe.
