Bono Asks For More Authenticity in Christian Music

A 22-minute mini film featuring a conversation between Bono and Eugene Peterson on the topic of The Psalms was just released (and available to view below).  Part of the conversation focused on the state of Christian music, and Bono criticized modern worship music for it's lack of authenticty (transcription below).   It is important to note that Under The Radar exists for this very purpose -- our entire mission is to promote well-crafted faith-based music with the intent that it fosters spiritual growth in people's lives.  We are dedicated to discovering and applauding the honest and creative songwriters that are connecting with people on a human level.  And if you're …

Online Concert with Christopher Williams (APR 26)

We have begun the new tradition of regularly hosting online benefit concerts -- allowing you to have a live concert and hear from the hearts of UTR artists without even putting your shoes on.  Our next concert that will be beamed straight to your couch will feature the music of 22-yr music veteran Christopher Williams, a guy who we really only "discovered" in 2014 and was quickly won over by his brilliant songwriting and seasoned performance.  If you have not yet discovered C-Dub, he's in the same conversation as a singer-songwriter as Andrew Peterson, Cindy Morgan, Andy Gullahorn, and other A-lister songwriters (yes, he's really that good!). In less than 2 years, …

Concert Review: Judah & The Lion in Philly

Our guest correspondent Joel Mendez covered the Philly stop on the “Folk Hop N’ Roll Tour” with Judah & The Lion and shared this review as well as photos of the night. Thanks Joel!

Dave’s Favorite Easter Song of 2016

Dave’s Favorite Easter Song of 2016

One of my favorite traditions this time each year is to share my personal favorite song for this year's Easter weekend celebration.  It doesn't have to be a song released this year -- it's the one that is resonating with my heart the most.  My selection for 2016 is most likely a song you have never heard before.  It was written for the artist's home church and quietly posted to his website.  Thankfully, I found it last spring and now can share it with you.  Officially, my favorite song for Easter 2016 is: "Lord Remember Me" by Ben Shive Ben Shive is one of Nashville's premier producers, having worked with the likes …

His newly-released album Hymns, Prayers and Invitations is now available. So go ahead and get comfy, put on his album and get to know him through this in-depth interview.   Q: What were some of the ways that the new album Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations came together?
