NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Few recording artists have had the impact and influence on the contemporary Christian music genre as Grammy and Dove Award-winning GMA Hall of Famer John Schlitt. The legendary vocalist has never shied away from living his faith out loud. Now...
Yes, the title is provocative, but we swear that it is not intended to be click bait – it really is a major theme in our featured conversation with Rich Kirkpatrick and Emilie Joelle, the father-daughter duo A Beautiful Liturgy. The make-up of the group is unique but their perspective on music and worship is universal.
Though we spend a lot of time connecting with artists, we also believe it is important to connect with behind the scenes in those essential but often unheralded roles. Our conversation with Jonathan Mason is one of those occasions. Jonathan heads up the worship arm of Word Entertainment. An artist himself and graduate of Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Biblical Studies, he followed God’s somewhat circuitous route from worship leader to his current position as Director of Word Worship. Listen to learn more about Jonathan’s journey, his heart for worship leaders and worship music, and the exciting events on the horizon at Word Worship.
Happy New Year and welcome back to the podcast. For our first episode of 2016, we wanted to share something special and uniquely appropriate. Katie Gustafson is a name familiar to many folks as an accomplished singer-songwriter and worship leader. But she wears another hat – she’s a licensed professional counselor who has been in practice since 2009. It was her work as a therapist that brought her to our attention.
Our introduction to worship leader Andrew Ehrenzeller was a wonderful little accident. The Jesus Culture artist was standing near our booth, so we just struck up a conversation without actually recognizing him. After twenty minutes of chatting about the joys of family and common interests, we finally decided that we should commit it to a recording.
If you’ve been keeping up with our series of interviews from CMS NW 2015, the name Andrew Marcus is likely a familiar one. This gregarious Canadian songwriter and worship leader jumped in and facilitated several of the resulting artist conversations. Andrew is based out of Vancouver, BC, which is quick couple of hours from Seattle where CMS NW took place. Andrew has written and worked with some big names including Paul Baloche, Leeland Mooring, and producer Ed Cash. They describe him with words such as “sincere”, “anointed”, and “refreshing”. And we tend to agree.
We're always a sucker for Canadian...
We’re back with another Amp’d interview! This episode features one of the original band members from the band Kutless, James Mead. Ironically, although Joe is a throwing distance from James in Oregon, Dan was actually the one who connected with James due to scheduling…soon to be rectified of course with a coffee at a local shop!
Songwriter Benji Cowart has long been on our potential interview list. Not only is he extremely talented, he is funny, humble, and ridiculously kind. Our guest host, Andrew Marcus sat down with the Word Worship artist to pick his brain about leading worship, his songwriting approach, and the new EP, Surrender.
We start strong right out of the gate with the legendary Don Moen chatting about his experience with CMS NW and his latest endeavor – a musical project that focuses on his longing for a nation that is healed and whole.

TUNE IN NOW
When I sat down (via the magic of the internet) with Joe Brookhouse of Frequency, I expected to answer some questions about my book, my faith, and my art. What I didn’t expect was the conversation that followed. Joe is thoughtful, prepared, and engaging and that interview remains one of my most memorable and enjoyable during the flurry of the book launch. I’m a huge fan of Frequency FM and it’s an honor to support the great work they doEmily P. Freeman
I look forward to every new podcast that comes out from the great guys at frequency.fm! I love the variety of people that they feature, the questions they ask, the song clips they showcase, and the fun that Joe & Dan have together! This is a podcast that feeds my artist-heart and I am SO incredibly thankful to have it available to me through iTunes!Hannah Starn
When my baby girl Eden was in NICU in St. Paul Minnesota, I had a scheduled interview with Dan Thomson and Joe Brookhouse over at the Frequency Podcast. This Podcast is top notch for artists and authors and because I didn’t want to miss it, the guys graciously allowed me to call in over Google Voice and risk their studio quality sound.
In the end, I’m glad they did because it turned out to be the best interview I’ve done. Joe knocked the ball outta the park with his insightful questions. I’m sharing it with you because we went places Church Zero didn’t go, and I want to take you with us.Peyton Jones
