Winter Jam 2015
He must become greater and greater; I must become less and less. John 3:30 NLT
It’s a history making tour.
Winter Jam has toured each year since 1995 and is the United States’ largest annual Christian Music Tour. Each year it cultivates its own distinct flavor by bringing along the best from a variety Christian music genres. There’s something for everyone. Here’s a few notes on the artists…
Pre-Jam Party newcomers VERIDIA and About A Mile kicked off the evening and were followed by former Group 1 Crew member turned solo artist, Blanca.
For King & Country, fresh off their 2x Grammy win last month, added their signature rhythm and theatrics along with Winter Jam founders and CCM veterans Newsong.
Go BZRK. A Family Force 5 live show never disappoints. They are one of the hardest working bands in the Christian music industry. (A few of my images of FF5 were featured on Gig Photographer).
Jason Roy and the boys of Building 429 along with Jeremy Camp and Francesca Battistelli each brough their own unique style of pop, rock and worship.
Although not part of the regular Winter Jam lineup, our local national recording artists Kari Jobe and husband Cody Carnes made a special appearance at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
Skillet clearly pulled out all the stops for Winter Jam 2015. Who even knew they had any more stops to pull? I haven’t seen pyro at a Skillet show since the first time I shot them. Skillet’s set also saw a great effort to move Jen Ledger from the constraints of her drum kit and to allow for more crowd interaction. As always, John Cooper had bold and encouraging words for the Christ follower.
Speaker Tony Nolan did a fantastic job of reminding us of God’s love and protection.
I’m not sure how they will top this tour but I’ll be excited to watch them do it again next year!
