Music Monday with Building 429
The Sheepdog's gonna mix it up again with this week's Music Monday. I started the year with hard rock and metal. Then, last week, I toned it down just a bit with The Rolling Stones. Now, I change it up again, and do so with another "newbie" - a Christian band that has not appeared on my Music Mondays before.
Today's featured artist is Building 429. They've became one of Christian music's most popular bands in only about five short years. These guys began playing together in the late '90s, but their big shot came about around 2003 when they signed on with Word Records. The Word deal led to almost instant success when Building 429 released the album Glory Defined in 2004, and their single of the same name went straight to #1 on the Christian charts. Next thing you know, they've won the Gospel Music Association's (GMA) 2005 Dove Award for New Artist of the Year, and the rest is history.
The featured song and video today is of the band's single "Listen to the Sound" from their 2011 album of the same name. The video is embedded in this blog post or can be watched by clicking here. I hope everyone enjoys it. We'll do this again next Monday, but by then, it might be time to crank the volume back up (wink, wink).
