Love it

Excellent show and wonderful host!

ProfessorAlan ,

Excellent idea, excellent execution

This is a great show that teaches people what it means to be a "good patron" of the arts, as well as finding excellent crowdfunding campaigns by Christian musicians, to potentially become a patron of.

VeeRonna ,

Garrett knows his stuff!

When it comes to understanding the Christian music scene, I can think of no one more versed and capable than Garrett Godfrey. Garrett is an excellent communicator, and his long time passion has been to unearth the gems of this genre. Garrett introduced me to artists early on some 18 years ago that I still enjoy today. In fact, I recently brought out an old cd of Waterdeep's Enter the Worship Circle--a band Garrett placed in front of me. You're awesome, Garrett!
