Special guest Tanya Godsey - Episode #358

posted: September 30th, 2016

I can remember the first time I heard a song by Tanya Godsey.  It sticks with you.  It was 2013, shortly after her music was requested by a UTR listener.  The powerful piano melodies, compelling lyrics, and strong alto voice took me by surprise.  We've been playing her music on UTR ever since.  Tanya was a part of the Artist On The Rise Showcase at Escape To The Lake 2014... and of course we were a …Read More »

Episode #335 - Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 (Revisited)

posted: April 29th, 2016

If there's one episode that deserves a 2nd spin each year, it's our annual audio countdown of the Top 11 Gourmet Albums of the Year.  Last year's list of critics' picks is an outstanding collection of gourmet music, and might make for a good entry point for someone just discovering the world of well-crafted indie music.  We feature songs from the latest work by The Lone Bellow, Josh Garrels, and Jon Foreman.  Who else released …Read More »

Guest Co-Host Chris & Jenna - Episode #340

posted: March 11th, 2016

UTR artists have been a great source for helping me discover new artists.  Such is the case with Chris & Jenna who was introduced to UTR by Nick Flora.  We started communicating through email right before the plug was pulled on the initial version of UTR in October of 2014.  They really leaned in to my personal situation with this ministry, which was a great source of encouragement.  In May of last year, we finally …Read More »

The Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 - Episode #335

posted: January 15th, 2016

I look forward to this episode each and every year... it's one of our longest-standing traditions.  This is the 6th consecutive year we have presented the Top 11 Gourmet Albums countdown.  This year was an exceptional year for "gourmet music" releases -- and maybe the first time ever that Sara Groves, Andrew Peterson, and Josh Garrels all released new studio albums in the same year.  It's really fun to do a show in a "countdown" …Read More »

Some of 2015’s Song Gems - Episode #332

posted: January 8th, 2016

As I thought about what show to plug into this week, which is the final week of our holiday haitus, I had to look no further than the show that released on 12/4/15, which very appropriately was an episode all about appreciating some of the amazing gourmet music that came our way in the year 2015.  That will lead us perfectly into next week, when we return with an all-new episode, and we countdown the …Read More »

Christmas Carol Remakes - Episode #334

posted: December 18th, 2015

To be honest, this episode was not supposed to happen.  We plan out our episode themes and recording schedule weeks (sometimes months) in advance, and we had scheduled to air a Christmas rerun from our archives.  But I was swept up into the holiday spirit as I dug into some of UTR's fan-favorite artists renditions of Christmas classics.  So we put in a bit of extra work, but really excited to have a brand new …Read More »

Gems From 2015 - Episode #332

posted: December 4th, 2015

This year has been an incredible one for the world of gourmet music.  It's not every year that you get a new studio project by Andrew Peterson, Josh Garrels, Sara Groves, Jenny & Tyler, JJ Heller, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and The Vespers - all in the same year.  And that only scratches the surface.  We will still be compiling votes from our UTR Panel of Critics to countdown the Top 11 Gourmet Albums …Read More »
