About A Mile released their highly-anticipated, self-titled debut album today on Word Entertainment. About A Mile, whose name originates from the belief that Jesus carried his cross “about a mile,” may be new on the charts, but brothers Adam, Luke and Levi Klutinoty, have a chemistry and accomplished artistry that is garnering wide critical acclaim as the trio’s music and lyrics speak to members of all faiths about the suffering then triumph of a crucified and risen Christ.
After sending a message to Ian Eskelin offering what little money they had to record a song, they were shocked when he wrote back, “Save your money. I’m coming to your next show!” Shortly after that, Ian brought the band to WORD Entertainment. Tangible success has never been the group’s goal, but rather, to impact listeners and simply find contentment in their faith. That goal is aptly summarized in the band’s lead single and video “Satisfied,” which Adam wrote after nearly dying during a sickness where food reacted like poison in his system.
“It actually came after I hadn’t eaten in seven days,” Adam explains of the song that is currently a Billboard Top 25 Christian AC/CHR hit and climbing. “I was fasting from food and just drinking water during my illness, slowly realizing that as long as we have Jesus, we will always be satisfied.”
Here is what the critics are already saying about the band’s debut:
“There are no filler tracks and this is the most solid debut I’ve heard since Over and Underneath by Tenth Avenue North. If you want to experience an uplifting, soul-stirring and worshipful album, look no further than About A Mile…If you like the rock bands The Fray, Lifehouse, Rhett Walker Band and Tenth Avenue North, you need to check out About A Mile.” – NewReleaseTuesday.com
“About A Mile might be a band making their full-length debut, but their self-titled LP sounds as seasoned as any veteran release this year.” – CCM
“It takes a unique style of musicianship and a rare attitude of worship to pull listeners in long enough to stay for 12 tracks. This self-titled debut from Adam, Levi, and Luke Klutinoty makes their case with a set that twinges nostalgic for the Goo-Goo Dolls, grunge and dc Talk’s Jesus Freak.“ – CBA Retailers+Resources
“The band is ‘musical chemistry perfected’…Front man Adam Klutinoty is not only an exceptional vocalist, but he’s also the most talented guitarist to hit the Christian music scene since Lincoln Brewster — but Adam takes it to a whole new level. His style is the perfect blend of new and old. A Christian band of this caliber is long overdue.” – RockingGodsHouse.com
“The vocals sound strong and the melodies are very catchy…the music sounds top notch with brilliant musicianship throughout the album.” – Louder Than The Music
“The subject of the album is clear: it’s Jesus, pure and simple. The tracks both proclaim who Jesus is and worship and praise Him for what He has done in the brothers’ lives, without restraint or reservation. With skilled instrumentals and strong, smooth vocals, they play and sing their awe of and love for God.” – Leading Hearts Magazine
“…once in a while, a band comes out of nowhere to deliver a great debut project, which is exactly what About a Mile’s debut project is…Never have I been more excited for a debut project from a band since for KING & COUNTRY…it is almost a sure thing that their album will be well received…” – 365 Days of Inspiring Media
“About A Mile’s debut… consistently portrays attitudes and messages that stem from a deep faith if it is not addressed directly, with a balance of quiet thankfulness and desperate need, earnest prayer and firm resolve.” – Christian Music Review

Chris and Emilee Show
Married for 25 years, Chris and Emilee are not your “average” husband and wife. Raising and homeschooling four children to adulthood while at the same time managing careers and ministry has lead to a pretty interesting take on life, family, and Christian radio.
Chris started his career in media at an early age doing TV commercials at the age of 14 and a radio gig at the age of 16. Over the years he rose to the ranks of General Manager but his passion for radio was truly rooted in sports. Chris hosted his own call in sports talk show and has done play by play for hundreds of football, basketball, and hockey games.
So what does he do for fun? Well, he has fun. Hang around Chris for a short time and his inner stand up comedian comes out. You don’t have to ask him twice to step up on stage for some comedy or improv. But, what Chris does best is tie all of his abilities together for the benefit of others, and the kingdom. Chris attended seminary and has found that all talents that God gives have a place in ministry. Including the gift of family.
Emilee draws from her experience as a wife and mother as well as the workplace to become an established and dynamic conference speaker. She worked for many years in customer service as well as for the State of MN and a law firm, but has never forgot the valuable life lessons she learned as a child growing up on the farm. She has the unique ability to connect with people of all ages and from all walks of life.
As Chris and Emilee grew in their walk together with Christ, they eventually were called to the mission field. Once again they saw how God has specifically prepared them for as they headed to rural Western Alaska to manage a Christian radio station on the Bristol Bay, sharing the Gospel of Christ to the Native Americans and vistors from around the globe.
From Minnesota, to Germany, Alaska, Arizona, and finally, Lord willing the last stop, West Michigan. The Danielson’s have covered a lot of territory and they want you to be with them on the journey by tuning in each morning to the Chris & Emilee Show.
Bible Idiots - Trailer 2015
Although this is her debut album, Destini Rose brings a sense of spiritual maturity and depth not often seen from a 20 year old worship leader. As the oldest daughter of ten children, Destini Rose has had a front row seat to ministry while her parents were pastoring and planting a church in rural Michigan. In addition, she has watched her dad (owner of Radar Talent Agency) discover, develop, and sign some of today’s best up and coming artists (We Are Messengers, The Neverclaim, A&LA), and has sought to bring a level of excellence not often found on a self-funded, debut project.
Destini Rose shares, “God has taken me on a journey! This journey was one that I couldn't have prepared for, and one that I am not even close to completing. You see, he called me away to a place of stillness. A place where I was able to retreat away and hear His still, small voice, through the beauty of His first gift… the gift of Creation. I had the chance to experience God in ways I had never before seen.”
This album seems to be a family affair with her brother and singer/songwriter/producer Doran Robin handling the bulk of the production work at Strong Oak Studios. Like God’s creation, this project gives us a variety of spiritual experiences that does not fit the typical worship album mold. If you are looking for something fresh and new, take a trip with this promising new worship leader through The Creation Album.

Doran and Angel Eichenberg
Doran and Angel Eichenberg bring an inspiring message of hope and encouragement to marriages of any stage. Drawing on their 25 years of marriage, raising 10 of their own children, fighting cancer, pastoring a church, and starting a business, they bring practical lessons through a dynamic delivery that is sure to engage.
They are currently working on their first book, Marathon Marriage: You CAN finish stronger, and share insights regarding the parallels they have discovered while training to run a marathon together. Doran shares, "In life you have sprints, but marriage is a marathon! You can't just go out and run one and survive. You have to prepare, train, refuel, and persevere if you want a hope to finish, let alone stronger than you started. But you CAN finish stronger!"
Book them for your next marriage or family conference!
Doran Robin's testimony starts in June of 2004 when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 10. If growing up the oldest of later to be 10 Children wasn't enough to bring a sense of reality, fighting cancer at an early age definitely was. Doran not only learned that life is a gift, but that there are millions of people suffering everyday. This perspective helped him realize the importance of laying all of our trust at the feet of Jesus. Since that time, Doran has been pursuing God and learning how to glorify Him through his music. During his high school years, Doran started a worship ministry named "Unchained Valor." God opened many doors through Unchained Valor which allowed Doran to learn an unusual amount about music. Not only the buisness aspect, but how it effects peoples lives emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
In the spring of 2013 Doran felt a huge pull by God to shift his focus to a new project that displayed a more clear message of hope. This allowed Doran to interact and engage with his listeners at a more genuine and personal level. Through his experience with cancer, Doran had the chance to hear and meet so many families in the hospital that were hurting physically, financially and emotionally. It was then that Doran realized that it is in these times when our world falls apart, that he has been given a passion to stand along side those who feel themselves being dragged down by the weight of constant struggle. The heart of Doran Robin's ministry is to show God's people, through music, that their Heavenly Father speaks to them and tells them, "my child, you will always and forever be "Safe with Me."

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John-16:33
Yes, life might be falling apart. The temptation to succumb to despair, depression and panic can be real.
Even for Christ-followers, we still face troubles. Someday, we know—or at least want to believe—that things will change, and we’ll find joy.But why not choose to make that day…today?
Jeremiah Carlson’s entire life changed when he stopped waiting for something or someone to help him fight his emotional and spiritual turmoil and accepted that those battles going on in his head and heart had been won already. “I was laying in bed with pneumonia one night with my world caving in on me from all directions,” recalls Carlson, frontman of the Portland, Oregon band, The Neverclaim. “In the midst of some heavy anxiety, I could hear God tell me to stop being a victim. Rise up, victorious. He invited me to a new state of mind, which didn’t mean an instant, easy change, but it was, no doubt, a vital turning point.”
Thus, as Carlson and his band mates Chuck Hill (bass), Mitchell Maldonado (guitar/keys) and Beji George (drums) set to work on The Neverclaim’s second studio album The Joy with two-time Dove Award Producer of the Year Ian Eskelin, the overarching theme woven between the songs was a no-brainer.
“Almost every song on this new project is centered around the joy of the Lord as our strength—our identity in Christ and the victory that’s won in Christ,” Carlson says. “Not that we shy away from the reality that living in a broken world affects all of us, but despite our hardships, we have access to a greater reality that fills our hearts with joy. We will face battles in life, but Jesus has won the war. We believe people are hungry for authentic joy, a joy that is not based on circumstances but on the fact that God is for us, so nothing can be against us.
The flagship band on Eskelin’s new imprint, Radiate, The Neverclaim took full advantage of their producer’s penchant for crafting fresh, accessible, radio-friendly pop-rock tunes mixed in with the creative sound they have been known for during the creation of The Joy. Having established notability as a high-impact, passionate, energetic and fun live worship act for years, the four-piece went into the studio, poised to keep the tempo up and their signature anthem-feel consistent and in place. The new batch of songs favor an electronic-infused, indie-pop rock sound that is both familiar and fresh.
Some of the album’s particularly great moments include the free-spirited, rock ‘n’ roll-riffing, gang-vocal’d title track and lead single “The Joy,” and the infectious, worshipful choruses of "Rules And Reigns," “Everything” and “Our God Wins.” “The theme of ‘Our God Wins” has been on my heart for years,” Carlson says. “It’s taken from John 16:33. ‘In the tension, that’s where hope begins.’ It’s only in the fires that we’re refined. The tension makes us stronger. It’s an ultimate reality we stand on, that, because we belong to God, progress will always result from our trouble.” Carlson continues, “All of these songs are crafted specifically to either minister healing into people’s hearts through worship and celebration, or to call something greater into their lives. To be the people God’s called them to be. To accept what God can do for and through them. Today. We don’t have to wait around for some miracle to happen in our hearts. The miracle can happen now.”
The Neverclaim continues building momentum having come off a year of solid touring with Sanctus Real, the Road Show tour as well as having played Disney’s Night Of Joy.
