SKY SONGS tracks back to the Jesus music of the late 1960's. There was a change sweeping over the land with a revival of Christian faith spreading out. Perhaps it happend first through-out the Hippie scene creating what we called "Jesus Freaks". Youth everywhere seemed to "turn on" to faith. Music for the movement originated on the West Coast. The original folk sounding chorus songs evolved into Contemporary Christian Music. This format includes all the elements that started Christian Hit Music and expands through the 80's, 90's & newer CCM hits.
You'll hear some of the early songs from artists already popular in the secular music world, as these stars experience Christianity. Artists like Barry McGuire, Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Noel Paul Stookey, Keith Green, Randy Matthews, Phil Keaggy and Chuck Girard. Groups like Second Chapter of Acts, Sweet Comfort Band, Daniel Amos, Gentle Faith, Petra, Resurrection Band, All Saved Freak Band and Servant.
Sky Songs doesn't stop with the founders of Christian Rock, we're playing a lot of the newer artists as well. It's a perfect format blending: "What Was" with "What Is" in Christian Music.
