A couple weeks ago, I got a very generous email from Rachel at INO Records offering to give me some CDs to giveaway on my blog. Get this…I even got to choose between three artists – two I knew and enjoyed (Fee and Phil Wickham) and one that was not on my radar (Jonny Diaz). And what did I do? I asked for her to send me the Diaz CD to check out. I got her to send me the Diaz CD because I much prefer introducing people to new things than giving them more of what they already know they like so….
Today, I am giving away Free Stuff. Today, I am giving away 5 copies of Jonny Diaz’s CD “More Beautiful You.”
It is the first time I’ve ever tried giving away anything so this post is called “Free Stuff, Take 1.” We’ll see how this works. And if it works well than there will be a “Free Stuff, Take 2” and so on and so forth. (Can you tell I am a kind of random mood and not sure how to do blog giveaways?)
Anywho…back to Jonny Diaz. Jonny Diaz is a former collegiate ball player who is making a name for himself in the music business. In fact, he was recently nominated for the Dove Awards’ Best New Artist of the Year.
Jonny Diaz’s music is good. Really good. His sound is fresh. His melodies are catchy. His lyrics share his heart, his heart for reaching his contemporaries with the message of God’s love, forgiveness, and grace. But don’t take my word for it….
CCM MAGAZINE says…
“With Catchy hooks, toe-tapping melodies, and undeniable artistry, the Jonny Diaz Band grabs you at first listen. A former college baseball player, Diaz does smart, guitar-driven pop flawlessly.”
BART MILLARD (lead singer of Mercy Me) says…
“The bottom line is Jonny Diaz is the real deal. To stand in front of 7000 people with just your guitar and your voice, and keep the crowd captivated is a gift. Jonny has that gift and then some.”
Sounds pretty good, huh?
So…would you like to win a copy? If so, leave a comment below sharing a musician or band you’ve discovered lately and a few comment about what makes them stand out. I will randomly choose 5 commenters on Friday and will notify them via email that they will be getting a copy of “More Beautiful You.”
PS – Once you become a Jonny Diaz fan, you should go here and vote for him to win Dove Awards’ coveted New Artist of the Year award. (Note: Fan voting closes April 20.)
