This post is the first in a series discussing the role of God’s Faith-Driven Artists in the Church and the world. These are just rough ideas that, over time, are maturing and becoming clearer to me. While these ideas are rough and only loosely formulated, I thought I would share them and ask for your views. What do you see as the role, in the world and in the Church, of Faith-Driven Artists?

As Believers, we are God’s living invitations to the foot of the Cross (1Peter 3:15). We are not His Holy Warriors here to change the world. Ridding the world of evil and sin is God’s job through Christ Jesus. We Believers are God’s hand-written, gold embossed invitation to the world to come to the foot of His Son’s cross of redemption. The responsibility is upon all who believe (Matthew 28:19), to so strongly reflect the grace and love of Jesus that some may ask, “ Why are your so steady through the tough times? Why are you always so up? Why doesn’t life seem to bug the hell out of you?”

Our art therefore needs to be a truthful expression of the grit and grace of the human enterprise. It also must be, in some way, a loving invitation from Christ to a hurting world. The phrase, “in some way” is used very broadly here.

In music , harmony considers the process by which the composition of individual sounds, or superpositions of sounds, is analysed by hearing. Usually, this means simultaneously occurring frequencies , pitches ( tones , notes ), or chords . [1]

The study of harmony involves chords and their construction and chord progressions and the principles of connection that govern them. [2]

Harmony is often said to refer to the "vertical" aspect of music, as distinguished from melodic line , or the "horizontal" aspect. [3]

The Brothers are back in Bellingen riding on the success of their sold out show in December at No 5 Cafe, supported by south coast Aboriginal artists Gabadoo and Deejizzle, The Brothers are back on the 3rd of February for another night of music and dancing.


The Brothers were born out of a Grow the Music program run by STARTTS in 2014. Four years
down the road and The Brothers are taking the mid north coast by storm. Three of the members met while in the Malawi refugee camp in Africa and through their songs they share with their audiences their bonds of brotherhood. Their music is inspired by the collection of their rich experiences coming to Australia as refugees. They write songs that celebrate their journey, through telling stories of gratitude and a new life in Australia.


The Brothers and Gabadoo have been unearthed and supported through the Grow the Music
Program. Both artists share a rich love for music and the stories they tell, and since their
performance in December they have decided to co-write and record together in the coming year.
The impact of their collaboration will certainly have a positive effect on their cultural communities
and Grow the Music will continue to support their individual and collective endeavours as emerging
artists in Australia.
