If we have to mention one artist that has had a major influence in worship services all around the world, it’s – without a doubt – Chris Tomlin. His Contemporary Christian Music career has been building a solid amount of followers for 25 years already. Within those years, he has definitely put his mark on the entire industry. His newest album ‘Chris Tomlin & Friends’ proves exactly why he was and still is the most influential Christian vocalist around!
Chris Tomlin’s calling to write worship came at the early age of 14. He grew up in Grand Saline in Texas and led worship in his youth group in his teenage years. Chris was heading to study medicine, but God had entirely different plans with him in college. He grew active in a campus Christian group, called Breakaway, as a worship leader. This led to many volunteering positions as a worship leader at various camps in Texas. While at Breakaway, he came in touch with the founders of Choice Ministries, Louie and Shelley Giglio. This led all to his role as a worship leader in the now-famous Passion Conferences.
From that moment on the Passion Conferences only grew, as did the reach of the songs written by Chris Tomlin. It became inevitable for Chris to get signed to a noticeable record label. ‘Sixstepsrecords’, which came forth from the Passion Conferences, aligned itself with major distributor EMI. Out of this construction came many of Chris Tomlin’s successes like the iconic albums ‘Burning Lights’ and ‘Love Ran Red.’
Chris Tomlin has now released his newest big project ‘Chris Tomlin & Friends.’ This album is all about surprising collaborations with some of the biggest names in the world of country music, like Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Thomas Rhett, and many more. The result is a highly unique blend of masterfully crafted worship with the sound of some of the best Christian-based country music that you’ll hear in a long time. Listen to ‘Chris Tomlin & Friends’ at Maasbach Radio, Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music.← BackNext →
