July 21 Micah Peacock

Texas-based singer-songwriter Micah Peacock can attest to music's potent play in our spiritual lives. As worship leader for The Well at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, a 2000-member congregation located in the sprawling Dallas suburb of Plano, every week Micah witnesses the impact music can have in the day-to-day life of a Christ follower. "To see people embrace fresh ways of worshiping the Lord," Micah relates, "and what that kind of encounter with Jesus can mean for our lives, is amazing."

July 28 Kate Miner

Kate Miner Moebel is an artist who "can't separate her performance from the song. The song, singer, and performance are one and the same, inseparable," said Chuck Plotkin, who has produced a host of artists, including Bruce Springsteen. Kate also refuses to compartmentalize her life – thus, her art, spirituality, humanity, and her calling from God are inextricably intertwined. Her listeners experience this raw transparency in her music, which crosses all demographic boundaries and cuts swiftly to the listener’s heart; she can “move you and soothe you in equal measure," wrote Chris Willman of the L.A. Times.

July 28 Parker Twomey

Born and raised in the musically-fertile city of Dallas, TX, Parker has had the opportunity to see a multitude of shows by talented local artists as well as his favorite national groups - he quickly cites his parents taking him to see the Drive-By Truckers, and Centro-Matic when he was 10-years-old as a seminal moment in pursuing music as a career. With influences like Elliott Smith, Brian Wilson, Ryan Adams and Ben Kweller, it would make sense that Twomey’s music is introspective and sensitive much of the time - an earnest voice alone with an acoustic guitar or piano - but he is equally comfortable creating carefully constructed arrangements with other musicians. | FB: Parker Twomey Music | TW: @ParkerTwomey | IG: @ParkerTwomeyMusic

July 28: Shayne Green

Songwriter, producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Shayne Green spent his formative years as a professional, highly versatile session and working musician. After years of recording/touring and performing locally and abroad, he began to focus on his own artist work as a songwriter and composer. Shayne Green continues to release vibrant, engaging music as a recording artist while composing music for film/tv. | FB: Shayne Green Music | IG: @ShayneWGreen | TW: @ShayneWGreen
