Recent Work: Love & The Outcome Interview & Bio

I sat down with Jodi King and her husband, Chris Rademaker, in their home in Nashville over the summer and talked about their new album, These Are The Days. I got to meet their adorable baby, Milo, and taste Jodi’s famous 5-ingredient chocolate chip cookies. Known as Love & The Outcome, this Canadian couple’s debut self-titled album released in 2013 and won multiple awards, reached top 15 on the Christian Gospel Overall Albums chart, and sold over 75,000 units as well as received over 7.5 million streams. The duo became a mainstay at Christian radio and shared the stage with Newsboys, Switchfoot, Lecrae, TobyMac, Jeremy Camp, Francesca Battistelli, and more. The folks from their management and label team recorded the interview, from which I wrote their new bio. Here’s a snippet from the interview! In this segment, she references the Ryman. I had just asked her about her experience playing…

Recent Work: Jeremy Camp Bio

I had the privilege of interviewing and writing a bio for Jeremy Camp’s wife, Adie, years ago. So it was extra cool that several months ago I talked to Jeremy to write a bio for his new album, I Will Follow. Jeremy is a Grammy-nominated artist who has the most No. 1s among solo artists on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. Here’s an excerpt: While he feels like he’s “just beginning,” Jeremy Camp has 12 years of accolades and accomplishments as a songwriter and recording artist, including four million albums sold, four RIAA Gold albums, a multi-platinum DVD, three American Music Award nominations and a GRAMMY nomination. He’s been a part of more than 25 tours (headlining 18 of those) in the U.S. and has performed in more than 32 countries. Jeremy describes himself as “a minister who happens to play music as a way to minister.”  Over the last year and a…

Recent Work: The Purpose Hotel

In one of the biggest projects I’ve been involved in to date, I had the privilege of overseeing the editorial and marketing copy for The Purpose Hotel Kickstarter campaign. This hotel, a dream of photographer Jeremy Cowart (Huffington Post’s most influential photographer on the web), this hotel reimagines the hospitality industry as a vehicle to drive social change. The goal with the marketing copy (from the video scripts, to the campaign text and emails) is to allow backers to feel like co-founders in a movement – not backers of a product.

Dr. Wood has an amazing heart and a cutting-edge vision for the future of the movement and I’m honored that I get to help shape that with editorial support and strategy. Here I am pictured with Dr. Wood and Josh Babyar of The Grist Group, for whom I’m working.
