Belmont alumni and acclaimed pop band MIKESCHAIR recently released its third studio project, All or Nothing (Curb Records), on April 1. The album is available at Family Christian Stores, as well as iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers.
Produced by Matt Bronlewee (Plumb, Jars of Clay), All or Nothing cautious against lukewarm faith. The anthemic title track was the ﬁrst song lead singer Mike Grayson wrote for the album, and it immediately became a creative foundation for the record.
“Throughout the span of the whole project, the goal is to inspire people to be sold out, to be on ﬁre for God, to choose the ‘all’ side of the phrase ‘all or nothing,’” Grayson said. “It’s the ﬁrst time where I actually wrote a song and then followed a theme throughout the whole process of writing the record… I feel like this is a season of challenging our fans to really take that step with us and say, ‘Hey! This is it! I’ve made a choice, and I want to see it through.’”
MIKESCHAIR made its major-label debut in 2009 and has garnered ﬁve Top 5 and three Top 10 radio singles and 12 GMA Dove Award nominations. All of its founding members met at Belmont University, and the band scored a coveted performance slot for Belmont’s Christian Music Showcase, which led to a record deal with Curb Records. The ﬁve-piece has toured with MercyMe, Newsboys, Lecrae, Matthew West, Brandon Heath and Big Daddy Weave, among others, and is now partnering with Aaron Shust for “The Morning Rises Tour.” MIKESCHAIR continues to maintain a heart for missions working alongside organizations and international relief agencies who provide for those in need.
