It’s the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation.

To “reform” is to improve or amend something that is wrong, corrupt, or unsatisfactory. With that definition in mind we thought it would be a great idea to record a conversation about whether or not there is a need for reformation in Christian music.

If there is anyone qualified to have this discussion it is Dave Trout of UTR Media.

Dave has been in Christian radio in some form or fashion for over 23 years. He has worked for WETN-FM in Wheaton IL,  WCFL-FM in Morris IL, Moody Radio, and ReFrame Media. He started the “Under The Radar” radio show in 2008 while working at ReFrame, and in 2014 that show became its own independent non-profit ministry, under Dave’s oversight. In 2017, the organization underwent a creative relaunch, and now produces a wider variety of media projects under the new name, UTR Media. Besides well-crafted music, Dave loves pizza, watching Netflix/Hulu, Apple products, fishing, the Cubs, and driving 5 mph over the speed limit. He lives in Oak Lawn, IL with his wife and 5 children.

Listen in as Dave Trout and Rick Lee James have a great discussion on Christian music and what UTR Media is doing to bring about reformation in the industry through great podcasts, innovative videos, and even producing album.

My guest today on Voices In My Head is R&B Singer BRIAN OWENS. With his music being compared to legendary artists like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and the Reverend Al Green, Brian has been featured on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Entertainment Tonight and Fox and Friends among others.   

Aside from making incredible music with Grammy award winning artists like Michael McDonald, Brian is also an Air Force veteran, a husband, a father, and a man of faith who provides leadership development for urban youth in his hometown of Ferguson, Missouri through Life Arts Incorporated.

Brian’s original music is full of messages that are encouraging, thought-provoking, and touching with subjects that range from social awareness to family life.

His latest album, Soul of Cash, is a cover album of songs made famous by Johnny Cash. But unlike most cover albums, Soul of Cash reimagines the Man In Black’s hit song giving an R & B feel that makes them feel fresh and original.  

 

Filled with guest appearance by artists like ROBERT RANDOLPH, THE DEACONS OF SOUL, RISSI PALMER, and DYLAN MCDONALD just to name a few, Soul of Cash breathes new life and emotion into the songs of Johnny Cash for a new generation.

 

Brian Owens, it is my great pleasure to welcome you today as my featured guest on Voices In My Head.

 

NOTE: Stay tuned until the end of the podcast for special surprise, a speech delivered by Johnny Cash himself. The speech was recorded at the Academy of Achievement Summit at the Glacier Park Lodge at majestic Glacier Park in Montana.

Shane_Claiborne.jpeg

Shane Claiborne is a follower of Jesus and following Jesus has led him on many adventures. Following Jesus has taken him from the streets of Calcutta where he worked with Mother Teresa to the wealthy suburbs of Chicago where he served at the influential mega-church Willow Creek. Following Jesus has taken him From Rwanda to the West Bank, from Afghanistan to Iraq, and from Tennessee to Philly where he leads “The Simple Way”, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.
 

What many people don’t know about Shane is that he was also friends with the late Rich Mullins. On this episode I talk with Shane about Rich, following the peaceful path of JEsus, gun violence, the death penalty and more.

Make sure you listen to the very end of the podcast so you can find out how to get one of Shane Claiborne’s audiobooks for free.
