The Reliques

The Reliques

Sarah Monteen and Sarah Dossey, Christian singers out of Austin, are the duo that make up The Reliques. The Reliques are a unique group in that two young girls from the South are expressing their faith through folk music. These two have yet to reach national attention, almost exclusively playing small shows in their home state, but with the amount of determination these two have showed raising funds on kickstarter for their first full length album and working to promote their music on youtube where they've filmed themselves performing covers and original material. Keep your eyes on these guys, they've got amazing potential.

Natalie Grant

Natalie Grant's musical career began in the late 90s. Despite that she was already close to thirty years old and just entering the industry Grant knew what God was leading her to. Very little success or recognition came her first few years due to her label misrepresenting her and using her looks as a selling point rather than the material she produced; nevertheless, Grant proved herself three albums later with hits such as, "Held" and "In Better Hands".

Grant has released eight albums since her emergence in Christian music and in 2005 published a book entitled; "The Real Me: Being the Girl God Sees" where she delves into her past suffering from bulimia and her journey to healing with the help of God. Between 2006 and 2012, Grant won five Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012) and was nominated for a Grammy in 2012.

She lives in Nashville with her husband Bernie Herms and their three daughters.

Kerrie Roberts

For being such a tiny person Kerrie Roberts has a beautifully powerful voice. Kerrie explains in her bio how church had been a huge part of her musical beginnings and how watching her pastor father reach out to hurting people in their times of despair taught her to give hop and encouragement to those who needed it.

Roberts began her music career after college but it wasn't until several years later that her first album was release. Roberts made it a priority to not jump at the first offer but to wait for the right situation to present itself. Roberts self-title album, Kerrie Roberts was released August 2010 the three singles from the album all hitting the billboard charts with the most successful being No Matter What charting at number nine.

Her second album, Time for the Show was release April 2013 doing equally well as the first. The album received four and five star rating from critics.

      Not all "Christian" songs but sung by a good person. Albertine is a haunting song about a child she met in Africa while on a mission.
