Brooke Fraser Appears In Most Added Section For Christian CHR and AC Formats

Brooke Fraser's single "Shadowfeet" is listed in the "Most Added" section for this week's Christian AC and Christian CHR charts. Only songs registering six or more plays at the most stations for the first time make this list. Typically, there are between five and ten singles per week which make this list for each format, so this is big news for Brooke's label (Wood and Bone).

Wednesday, June 25, 2008 Grants Prominent Placement To Holy Mountain Music & Barbara Haynes has granted prominent placement on their site for the new albums from Holy Mountain Music (Songs From Sunday Morning Vol. 1) and Barbara Haynes (How Can I Thank You). "Songs From Sunday Morning" is featured in the New Release section for the week of 6/24/08, and "How Can I Thank You" is listed in the Featured Releases section.

Holy Mountain Music's "Songs From Sunday Morning" has been called a "breath of fresh air for Christian music," not only for the clever arrangement by arranger/producer Bobby Bush, but for the joy and vitality of the music on this largely instrumental album filled with contemporary versions of well-loved hymns and spiritual songs. The recording features performance and solo work by a stellar group of world-class musicians including Gramm Award-winning trumpeter Fletch Wiley, saxophonist Jaared, Dove Award-winning vocalist Marty McCall (of the vocal trio First Call) and vocalist/songwriter Carmen Calhoun. Songs From Sunday Morning is a powerful musical journey, recalling and reviving timeless songs of the Christian faith and the heart of God for His people.

Hailing from the great state of Louisiana (but now residing in Southern California), Barbara Haynes is a well-seasoned artist. Her sophomore project entitled "How Can I Thank You" is contemporary gospel with a sense of knowledge and experience from the soul. Her music truly amplifies victory, praise and thanksgiving, and is purposed to make a life-changing difference to those who might be bound, depressed or just in need of an uplifting of the spirit.
