If you haven’t yet listened to The New Respects, we’re here to remedy that. To put it simply, they play like they love each other. Their songs overflow with life and energy, well-crafted yet well-worn, like your favorite pair of shoes. And as you listen, you get the sense that they’re laying it all on the line with every lyric and melody. There’s no hiding here; only heartfelt, transparent truth-telling. What’s not to love?
A very special show is coming to Brentwood, Tennessee on April 11th, called Living Letters. Featuring Broadway actors Juliette and Stephen Trafton, Living Letters presents dynamic, interactive performances that enable audiences to enter imaginatively into the drama of Scripture. This particular show will center around Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
Tomorrow night’s Local Show will be a special one indeed. Instead of the usual songwriters-in-the-round, we will have a Storyteller Night comprised of some of the best storytellers we know. There are still a few tickets left here at the store!
If you’re unfamiliar with Tenebrae, it’s a traditional Holy Week service that uses the gradual extinguishing of light to draw attention to the sufferings of Christ and the resident darkness of the world. It’s an occasion to meditate on and lament the brokenness of the human heart and the groaning of creation. The following liturgy is taken from Douglas McKelvey’s Every Moment Holy. We hope it serves you well this week in the darkness before the dawn. (If you’d like to use this liturgy in a group or church setting, you can download it here.) Read More ›
Would you like to simultaneously support International Justice Mission and hear a night of phenomenal collaborative music? If you answered “yes,” tonight’s “Make Something Right” concert is the night for you. Tonight at our favorite coffee shop on Granny White Pike, Local Show favorites Jess Ray and Taylor Leonhardt will be joined by forBrothers, a band comprised of two sets of brothers and self-described as “folk on steroids.”
Does your Tuesday night need some extra love? Look no further: the inimitable Jason Gray, Andrew Osenga, Nick Flora, and The Orchardist will be sharing some tunes at The Well Coffeehouse on Granny White Pike this very evening.

You may or may not know that The Orchardist has been releasing their new album, People, People, in three parts throughout the past year, telling its story a few songs at a time. Well, the day has finally come that you can listen to their entire album from start to finish: Acts I, II, and III.
It is with great excitement that we announce Hutchmoot 2018, taking place October 4th—7th at Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee.
[Editor’s note: Throughout Lent, Sandra McCracken will be sharing weekly writings, each of which is tied to a song from her new EP, Songs from the Valley, available at her website. Below you will find the first of these writings, which was originally posted on Ash Wednesday. It is to be read alongside her song, “Fool’s Gold,” which you can listen to here.]
