S4:E24 Catholic Playlist – #175

Debut of The Mosleys

Catholic Playlist #175

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 chose “Brighter Days” from their first full length album Ordinary Time for their debut, which can be heard leading off the second segment of the show. We followed that up with “Help Me Mary” from Daniel Rolf and “Good Shepherd” from Brother Isaiah for a distinctly folk music vibe.

That music is sandwiched between performances from Out of Darkness, Marie Miller, Greg Walton, NOVUM and many others. Enjoy!

New Music from John Finch, Pasquale Talarico and E.P.I.C the Band

Catholic Playlist #174

As regular listeners of the show you know we’re always looking for new music to showcase in each Catholic Playlist. This week we’re thrilled to have 4 new songs in the playlist! John Finch just released a new full length album titled “Wildfire”, and we picked the title track to debut in the playlist. E.P.I.C. the Band (“Proclaim”) and Pasquale Talarico (“All Things New”) each debut new singles, and we just discovered “Surrounded by Your Love”, a single by Greg&Lizzy released last year for Catholic Heart Workcamp. Other performers you’ll hear include those that didn’t make our guys and girls only playlists, but only because we lacked the time — Dave Moore, Audrey Assad, Jackie Bissin, Joe Zambon, Teresa Peterson and others.

S4:E22 Catholic Playlist – #173

It's Guy's Only!

Catholic Playlist Show #173

It’s only fitting to follow up last week’s ladies only playlist with a guys only playlist this week. That’s exactly what we’ve done as we selected 13 of the most popular male contemporary Christian music artists of the last year. And like the ladies, we had to keep a few guys on the sidelines, notably Matt Faley, Adam Bitter, Brother Isaiah, Cody Roth, Dave Moore, Fr Rob Galea, Joe Zambon and more. Now if you listen to the entire playlist, you might notice that Josh Blakesley isn’t heard. Why? It’s because they are a band, a group, and in fact they are referred to as the Josh Blakesley Band. It’s a technicality probably, but it does give us more options to choose when doing a ‘Bands’ only playlist! That playlist may be coming your way soon. Getting back to Playlist #173, you’ll hear from Connor Flanagan, Dante Schmitz, John Finch, Ike Ndolo, Kyle Sinkule and more.

S4:E21 Catholic Playlist – #172

It's Ladies Only!

Catholic Playlist Show#172

Sharing the joy of the Gospel through the power of music – that’s what we do here on the Catholic Playlist show – a showcase of the best and very newest contemporary Christian music from Catholic artists only.

This week the music you’ll be hearing is from female artists only — it’s our first ever ‘Ladies Only’ playlist! This ought to be a lot of fun don’t you think? You know, a few years ago we might have had a bit of difficulty coming up with enough female only artists to fill the show without playing someone twice, but that’s not the case any more. In fact, we had to leave many female artists off the list, like Stefania Elsmore, Rebecca Roubion, Teresa Peterson, Sarah Kroger Quaglia, Jackie Francois Angel, Jackie Bissin, and others. I’ll have to make it up to them in a future playlist! But you will hear from Alanna Bourdreau, Sarah Hart, Marie Miller, Dana Catherine, Alverlis and so many more.

Check it out and share!

A mix of new and old music can be found in our playlist for episode 20 of season 4 of the Catholic Playlist Show.

New music includes Rita West’s “Chosen”, Brother Isaiah’s “Jacob’s Song” and “Arrow” from LEVV.

And finally, Teresa Peterson reminds us that old or new, when we’re in Christ, “He Makes All Things New.”

Discovering great new music and artists has been part of our mission here the Catholic Playlist for nearly 4 years. The list of discoveries keeps growing this week as we have two performers in our playlist – His Own and Brother Isaiah.

His Own Separate Us SingleThe trio of Kara Klein, Maria Spears and Christine Simpson make up the new group called His Own. These three ladies have come together to “combine their love for Jesus, passion for music and desire to proclaim the joy of the feminine heart.” Learn more about them and what they’re doing in their ministry at their website – www.behisown.com. Their first album was just released and we play a single they put out earlier this year – “Nothing Can Separate Us”.

Brother Isaiah BroomstickBrother Isaiah is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal who released an EP titled “Broomstick” last year. We just came across his music and we’re pleased to share “Jacob’s Song” from that EP. A portion of all the proceeds from the sale of his music go to help mothers in need of assistance – so us these links to Amazon and iTunes to buy his music to ensure they get full credit.
