Jesus Culture

California’s Jesus Culture is an international Christian revivalist youth outreach ministry that utilizes the power of music to spread its message. Led by youth worship leader and pastor Kim Walker-Smith, the Jesus Culture Band, which initially released albums through the ministry’s own record label, “Jesus Culture Music”, started issuing nearly annual live praise and worship albums beginning with 2006’s Everything. Showcasing individual artists like Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Chris McClarney, and Derek Johnson, as well as the whole collective, Jesus Culture became one of the most prominent and influential CCM acts, selling over a million albums worldwide. In 2015, they issued their first compilation album, This Is Jesus Culture, a collection drawn from the group’s previous albums that was their first release under a new recording contract with Sparrow Records, a spiritual imprint of EMI Records. The collective’s follow-up, Let It Echo (2016), debuted at number one on the Christian/Gospel charts. Their 2017 release, Love Has a Name, was recorded at their home church in Sacramento. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
