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."

With a fresh sound and energetic LIVE performance MASS ANTHEM seeks to connect with the youth of our culture in an unscripted musical approach that breaks the mold of expectations for a CCM band!
Lead singer and front man Chad Sowards states, "Jesus calls us to go and make disciples of all nations. It is our goal as a band to take our Anthem, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to the masses. The name Mass Anthem challenges us to be bold in our faith and take the Gospel of Jesus to the world."
This is a message that MASS ANTHEM has taken action on by booking multiple summer camps that pay little, require much, but offers an opportunity to spend time with kids and young adults in an environment that cultivates conversations that often lead to life altering decisions! And seeing lives changed is what MASS ANTHEM is all about.

In 2015 it was announced that the band "OceanSpeak" would continue on in Nashville. What followed were a number of events that resulted in "OceanSpeak" being laid to rest. Vocalist Jeremy Claudio was determined to continue, and eventually he reunited with drummer Ricky Smith alongside new bandmate Cory Pierce.
Enter Tiger Drive. Tiger Drive, it’s important to note, is not a continuation of OceanSpeak. This is something entirely new. Their sound is not easy to define, yet it fits into the greater paradigm of the emerging alternative pop movement.
What does Tiger Drive mean? I’m not really sure either. I think that’s up to you to decide for yourself. What does matter is that Tiger Drive is poised to leap into greatness. A series of very specific events have led the group to this point, and Jeremy would likely tell you that none of this was an accident.
