Every once in awhile a band becomes close enough to say "We're like family". And then there's 10 Talents who "are" family. Call it an atypical journey, but after years of chasing popularity and success in their own respective musical outfits, the three Waglers came together to renounce fame and potential riches by forming this Non-Profit band.
Coming together in the fall of 2015 with no real goal other than to make music and give it away, they've since performed extensively throughout the midwest. Shows have ranged from back yard acoustic appearances to direct support for Grammy nominated artists. However, constants remain. Each song download is free. Each dollar received is used to support the ministry or donated directly to a partner charity. Each life touched is for a higher purpose.
"The first time the idea came up it was forever obvious. Music is a gift and a vehicle to help those in need", bassist and vocalist Eric says. The first merchandise pressed didn't even feature the band name. Instead, a simple quote from Pablo Picasso: "The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away"
After teaming up w/ Drummer Logan Witte, and Keyboardist Jason Aeshliman, and with the help of producers/friends Pete Bishop and Jake Rye (Newsboys, Sanctus Real, Steven Malcolm), the band wrote and recorded 10 Talents EP focusing on molding together a mixture of Indie, Pop, Honesty, Hope and Love. With the release in Spring 2017, they immediately concentrated ambitions on reaching the world.
Most days, home may be a makeshift basement recording studio on a quiet county road in Northern Ohio. But to 10 Talents, home is ultimately where you arrive once the journey is through. This journey is only beginning. Join us.

This track is off of my latest album CHANGED (available at www.jphiphop.com), and this was the first track I wrote after truly and fully surrendering my life to Christ. I knew in my heart 3 years ago that he was calling me into ministry with my music... to use my passions and gifts to share the gospel, glorify Him and point people to Him. But it took me almost two years after I was first convicted before I actually got to the point of surrendering. I had done my own thing my own way for so long... and I was worried about what surrendering would cost me... all that I would have to give up, what it would look like, what people would think, fans I might lose, what all would happen and change because of it. Well, the truth is following Jesus will cost you everything... we have to be totally sold out and all in and deny ourselves daily to seek first His Kingdom and His will above our own... but it is SO worth it! Once He allowed me to understand that and He settled it and gave me peace in my heart to know and trust that HIS way and HIS will for my life was far better than my own... I was able to surrender my heart, my mind, my music... my life! In an instant He set me free from so many of the things that had been holding me back and experiencing his true Spirit and power at work in my life! This is the song I wrote the day my surrender and going all in for Jesus happened! #CHANGED #ThankYouJesus
I pray this song blesses and encourages you! You may feel similar to how I felt and know in your heart that you need to surrender all to Jesus, but there are things that are keeping you from doing so... I pray the peace and love of God would flood and fill your heart and give you the strength and ability to throw off everything that is holding you back, holding you down, and keeping you from experiencing the fullness of who our Great God is and wants to be for you! For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11

"Poetic Descent is an Alternative Metal band from Dayton, Ohio featuring former members of Mayfly (Voluminous Records). Jared Lacey (vocals, guitar, bass) and Adam Thompson (drums) entered the Darkroom Recording Studio (Piqua, OH) to record six songs with Justin Moore shortly after Mayfly announced its end in March of 2017. Their music has been compared to bands like Finch, Story of the Year, Further Seems Forever, Chevelle, Incubus, Dead Poetic, Project 86, Every Time I Die, Blindside, Beartooth and Norma Jean. All songs were composed by Jared Lacey, who after discovering that the biblical Hebrew meaning of his first name was "to descend", created the name Poetic Descent. Lyrically, his songs touch on topics such as the existence of God, addiction, his mother's death, domestic abuse, martyrdom and homosexuality. These songs were released as singles online on all major streaming and download sites starting in March of 2018 with the final song being released in June of 2018. Since then, their debut single, Close Encounter, has had much success on the radio staying in the top ten on the Christian Rock National Airplay Billboard chart six weeks in a row from May through June. In November of 2018, the duo re-entered the studio with Jake Bryant (former guitarist for Dangerkids) and Shaun O'Shaughnessy (Encore Recording Studios in Dayton, OH) to record a new single titled Pariah which was released on March 29th, 2019."

"The word Halcyon means calm or peaceful. We believe there is a sense of peace or calmness to be found wherever you might end up, whether you intended on being there or not. We write music to inspire. We have all found ourselves in dark places, feeling hopeless and alone. We have given up too soon. We have let go of hope. Thankfully we found that hope again. We dusted ourselves off and made a decision to fight back against the things that put us there. These songs are our stories."

Now is the time to turn to Jesus, repent of your sin and get about truly living! The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, Jesus came so we may have life! (John 10:10). Jesus states that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that no one comes to the Father but through Him. Jesus is not a way, not a truth, not a life but The. If you don't know Jesus you don't know the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Rep was the winner of our 2018 hip hop song contest, his entry, "I Am Groot". Rep has a style that is all his own and he is versatile, we believe that there isn't a style of beat that he couldn't lay a dope verse on. When we heard "I Am Groot" we immediately knew it was a contender and sure enough the song took first place. Rep brought "I Am Groot" back to the studio and did some fine tuning and it the result sounds amazing! There are some big things ahead as we learned from one of Rep's recent social media posts "I AM GROOT is out on all digital music platforms. Thankful for TinoHitz.net and Tentmaker Music for helping birth this song which will be on a new EP coming out this summer. More details on that in the future. Till then...stay rooted. Also thanks to Trackstarz for letting it on their music leaks website." If "I Am Groot" is the sign of what is to come musically for Rep, than we are for sure excited to hear his upcoming EP!

Here are a couple of quotes from people concerning his new album "Heartland"
"Unabashed Midwesterner John Tibbs has released more authentic, epic and quality tunes in his short run as a professional songwriter than many artists will produce in a lifetime. Heartland brims with the kind of honest rock and roll that the late, great Tom Petty trafficked in, with the 'heart-on-his-sleeve' craftsmanship that creates an immediate bond with the listener on the first pass." — Jesus Freak Hideout
"With the Heartland EP, John Tibbs combines thought-provoking lyrics with his rock roots style. The captivating sonic landscape will keep listeners entertained song after song, indicating good things to come from Tibbs in the future.” — New Release Today

BRM has just released a new single featuring Xay Hill & it is straight fire, no pun intended as the song is called "Let the Fire Out". The message behind this track is powerful as BRM states "If we could all work together, all our gifts, and let the flame out that God put inside of us, WE and CHH would be unstoppable!!! God lit the match in us, now its up to us to spread the fire and reach people! Let the FIRE OUT!!!!" Xay Hill does a fantastic job on the chorus, it is smooth and fits the beat perfectly. BRM isn't playing on his verses, he is bringing a message that we need to hear as Christian artists, and it is one of unity centered around the truth of Jesus Christ. "Let the Fire Out" is worth your time, give the song a listen and leave a comment letting us know what you think! Enjoy!
