About The Artist
Son of Laughter “His music has a unique ability to enchant and transform. Like the best of the metaphysical poets, Chris crashes unexpected elements together—perhaps a transcendent, ethereal sound with grounded imagery—perhaps a simple children’s story told powerfully enough to revive a road-weary adult. Meanwhile, Chris confesses his longings and his weaknesses so honestly, it’s impossible to hear his music and remain disengaged." - Rebecca K. Reynolds, author of Courage Dear Heart, Letters to a Weary World
"Armed with a (Paul) Simonesque voice, an acoustic guitar, and a penchant for storytelling, singer-songwriter Chris Slaten (aka “Son of Laughter”) delivers a thoughtful, bright, and theologically robust exploration of redemption and brokenness." - World Magazine
Caroline Cobb In 2011, Caroline gave herself a goal to write a song for every book of the Bible in a year. That year of writing set in motion a new passion to tell the stories of scripture through music, faithfully and creatively. Caroline’s latest album, a Home & a Hunger: Songs of Kingdom Hope, traces the biblical themes of Eden and exile, restlessness and rest, and God's "upside-down" kingdom. Produced by Gabe Scott (Andrew Peterson, David Crowder) and featuring Shane Barnard and Jill Phillips, the album rose to #3 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts. Her last album, the Blood + the Breath: Songs that Tell the Story of Redemption takes the listener on a journey through redemptive history, with each song parachuting into a different biblical scene. Caroline has been compared to Ellie Holcomb, John Mark McMillan, Sandra McCracken and Rich Mullins. She and her husband Nick live in Dallas, TX with their three young kids (Ellie, Harrison and Libby).
Paul Demer Dallas singer-songwriter Paul Demer blends introspection, empathy, and wonder to craft melodically memorable and lyrically rich folk music. Drawing frequent comparisons to both James Taylor and Jon Foreman, Demer invites audiences of various ages to locate their own stories in the ebb and flow of joy and heartache.
Demer ’s latest release celebrates gratitude in the midst of mortality. Inspired by friends, family, and years of experience singing in hospitals and nursing homes, I’m Glad You’re Still Around is Demer’s most personal and profound offering yet.
