allnightclubsthemagazine: Interview with DJ Andy Hunter by Emily Tan: "Interview with DJ Andy Hunter by Emily Tan
EMILY TAN: How did you cross-over from the very focused audience of Christian music to become signed by a major dance label like Nettwerk?
ANDY HUNTER: I was signed to a label in Nashville [Tennessee], Sparrow Records, which is part of EMI [Records]. We recorded an album with Sparrow, and it was through the EMI system...they felt the album was good, so they got the demo through to Roy Lott at EMI. He liked the demo, and so he handed it around to lots of different labels...and, Nettwerk got one. [Nettwerk] approached us to license it, which we arranged, and before long, they were on board. Soon after, I signed to new management [at Nettwerk America].
ET: What first inspired you to become a DJ?"

Steve Taylor Press Conference - a Feature of The Phantom Tollbooth:

"Steve Taylor Press Conference
Friday, July 4, 2003
Cornerstone Festival
Moderated by Chris MacIntosh
Photographs by Linda LaFianza & Steve White
MacIntosh: A number of years ago, the Resurrection Band was out on tour, and they brought this tall, skinny ex-youth pastor with them to open up the shows for them. His name was Steve Taylor. What have you been doing lately, man?
Taylor: [laughs] I haven't been doing any interviews, that's one thing. I'm a little nervous about this! I actually haven't taken much in the way of questions or anything since the Squint days, so I hope you guys will go really easy on me, and just a lot of powder puff questions, and make it easy.
MacIntosh: I would ask if anybody wants to ask questions, come up here, use the microphone, because we are recording these for future posterity. Does anybody have any questions for Steve? "
pc3 interview -

"On the afternoon of the last show with Third Day on the extended Come Together Tour, we sat down with the all three members that make up the Paul Colman Trio to discuss a little bit about, connection, their music, some insights from living in Australia, the simplicity of Jesus, and where they plan to go from here. cMusicWeb's motto is 'A different approach to music.' How does pc3 fit into this?

Grant: I think for a lot of bands, being in a band is about the music, or it's about making money, or it's about a whole lot of other things. I know that a lot of bands do performances where they are very arty about it and it's about them expressing their music as an art form and hopefully people will appreciate it. And if people"

KJ-52 Hits TRL

Viewers of MTV's TRL may have noticed a clip of Christian rapper KJ-52's video "Dear Slim." Though the show apparently tagged the song as an Eminem dis (KJ says they're wrong), the video's appearance has generated a strong response. According to KJ's label, Uprok Records, one viewer named Trevor e-mailed the rapper, saying: "After the show I went over to my computer and downloaded your song. After I listened to it, I realized that your message was different. You weren't rapping about sex, drugs, and killing. You weren’t dissin' Em. I also realized that the music I listen to just desensitizes me to all of these things. I never thought religious music could be just as good as the music that I listen to on the radio. I think it was really brave of you to stand up to the big bad wolf, what a better way to promote your teachings. The song was a reality check. If slim fights back with a dis song he is making a big mistake. I admire your dedication. You could be making millions but you'd rather be teaching millions. That is what touched me. Thanks."

Says KJ himself, "I really wish they would've played the whole song and not just the first verse and chorus. It really gave it a one sided representation of the song and of myself as an artist and the intentions behind the track. My original intentions were to simply address some of the issues of me being compared with him and to share what God has done in my life. It was definitely not a dis song and was not to make a name for myself."

Essential Records


Record Features Acoustic-Pop Style; Production by Josh Moore of Caedmon’s Call

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) June 20, 2003- South Carolina’s Silers Bald releases its first Essential Records project, Real Life, Sept. 30. An indie favorite throughout the Southeast, Silers Bald extends its acoustic-pop sound and bona fide lyrics to a national audience with Real Life, produced by Josh Moore of Caedmon’s Call.

Claiming independent sales of more than 40,000 albums as well as a following that keeps the band on tour 200 days annually, Silers Bald blends eclectic instrumentation with buoyant melodies and southern charm on its upcoming record.

Producer Josh Moore comments, “One of the newer pop-rock approaches incorporates a diverse palette of songs, ranging from cuts that are pretty intense and heavy to those that are softer, relaying a melody. Because the guys play and sing with such confidence, I encouraged them to go in any direction they wanted, and they really pulled it off.”

Another Windup Records (creed,12 stones) serving of Against the Flow music: - The HOTTEST in Christian music at great prices!: "The newest signing on Wind-up Records, which is also home to 12 Stones, Creed, and Evanescence, is the powerhouse rock quartet from Florida known as Big Dismal. While lead singer Eric Durrance's throaty vocals will no doubt conjur up comparisons to Scott Stapp (Creed) or Jason Wade (Lifehouse), Big Dismal offers plenty of truly original material. All 10 songs on this debut are incredibly strong - there is not a bummer in the bunch. And whereas labelmates Creed and Evanescence have distanced themselves from the Christian market by specifically requesting to not be referred to as a 'Christian' band, Big Dismal unashamedly claims the title. Their music is unmistakably faith-based, and the band makes no compromises. "
