Rockin 4 The ROCK!

Balls To The Wall was a HUGE hit for the German Metal Band, ACCEPT.  I totally loved this song!  With Udo Dirkschneider on vocals, Wolf Hoffmann on guitar, Peter Baltes on bass and Michael Cartellone on drums this band rocked hard!  I know I had a blast honoring these musicians and redeeming the message of this classic metal song with a Christ-honoring message.  Fans of Christian Rock and Christian metal will enjoy this one!  I hope it totally Rocks You Up!

The Story Behind TELECASTER

THE STORY behind the song and the album called, "TELECASTER."  It was a crazy, intense, maybe even a little bit unwisely busy season of life----but one of the great things that came out of it was this collection of 12 80s Style Christian Metal songs.  I hope this story and the song totally ROCK YOU UP!

Without Warning - A Cover of George Lynch/Dokken's Epic Intro

Do you remember setting the needle down on Dokken's "Tooth & Nail" for the first time---and hearing WITHOUT WARNING swell into full volume with all of it's emotion, drama and technical prowess?  It was just a classic 80s guitar monster rock track.

Well, this is my cover of this amazing piece of rock music history... enjoy!
BTW: Full credit to Jeff Garner who handles lead guitar duties on this one!

Everlating God by Lincoln Brewster - A Hard Rock Cover by Pastor Brad

If you love Jesus, enjoy great modern worship and also hard rock / metal music, you’ll totally dig this hard rock version of EVERLASTING GOD! NOTE: “Everlasting God” is my performance of a song written/composed by Tom Fettke and Ken Bible. The version that inspired me was performed by Lincoln Brewster. I had a blast recording and producing it—I hope ti totally Rocks You Up for Jesus!
