|Jon Bauer’s Forevermore Album|
Canadian Worship Artist Jon Bauer’s album FOREVERMORE has been nominated for a 2012 Juno Award in the category “Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.” The Juno Awards are the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy.
While many American’s don’t pay attention to award shows occurring outside the country, Canada’s best and brightest artists have certainly made a major impact on the American Christian music scene. While it is no secret that Canada has produced a bumper crop of uniquely talented artists in many genres over the years, the country’s batting average in Christian music has been especially noteworthy. And now, Jon Bauer is stepping up to the plate. Jon’s fourth worship-focused recording, FOREVERMORE, is also his US debut, with songwriting that has been likened to familiars in the industry like Chris Tomlin or Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall. Produced by one of the industry’s most sought-after producers, 2010 Dove Award-winning producer Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Meredith Andrews), FOREVERMORE features 10 selections with 8 written or co-penned by Jon. “My heart is to encourage people that worship is more than music. It’s a lifestyle, and it’s a choice. We need to look for ways to serve God and serve others, representing Him to this hurting world.”
