Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Great Awakening will release their sophomore full-length album, Songs in Secret, on Tuesday, April 26th. The record will be available as a free download on the Come&Live! Web site (
The four brothers in Christ continue to operate with the same humility, honesty and depth that brought them together. Their latest endeavor is this sophomore album, a record housing 10 tracks. Songs in Secret exists to cultivate face-to-face conversations with the Lord in a secluded and highly intimate environment. Great Awakening wrote each lyric from their hearts as they put to music the words they speak in secret.

“We’re figuring out who we are as worshippers made uniquely in the image of God,” says Cole Johnson. “We’re just singing love songs to Jesus in the way that we actually talk to Him. We hope this leads people into a deeper love with Him.”

The intensely poignant lyrics on Songs in Secret create the picture of a child baring his soul to his father. It’s worship music that dares to go beyond the surface. In fact, it ventures deep to a place where time flies by and tears flow freely. Everything is stripped away. Passion and sincerity emanate from each and every carefully placed word and note. Great Awakening writes in hopes to inspire others to delve into their own secret place.

Great Awakening is a four-piece band from Burlington, NC. The band formed when the friends started leading worship together for their church’s youth group. From there, they started writing their own songs, a string of unexpected string of events led them to sign with Come&Live! and they released Cities in 2009. Great Awakening is Zach Janicello (guitar/vocals), Cole Johnson (guitar/vocals), Ben Woods (bass) and Tanner Johnson (drums).
