Koiné is excited to announce they will be playing Lifest Friday, July 12, 2013 at 05:00pm on the Cafe Stage, and we hope you will be there with us! But you're probably saying to yourself, I've seen Koiné before, they've come to my church or school and led worship or given a concert. So why should I come to see them at Lifest?
At Lifest, Koiné will be flexing their musical muscles, so to speak. We are working to put together a handful of extra musicians and vocalists to present some familiar songs (and maybe even some new ones) in a fashion we rarely get to. In the recording studio, we have the opportunity to bring in some of our musical friends, adding extra instruments like strings, or layers of vocal harmonies. While it's not feasable for us to travel like this all the time, there are a few rare cirumstances each year, where we are able to bring these friends along. This is one such opportunity, not to be missed!
Many of you have followed Koiné’s music for years, but you have never seen Koiné like this before! For the first time ever, Koiné will be doing 2 live concerts on the internet from the friendly confines of their practice space! This will be an intimate musical experience you will not want to miss. These concerts will not be recorded or rebroadcast. You've got to watch them live! But hey, you can interact with the band in real time!
Thank You from Koiné
Koiné wins Christian Artist of the Year
We just won a WAMI for Christian Artist of the Year! What’s a WAMI, you ask? It’s like the Grammy’s only for artists from the state of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Area Music Industry is the official name behind the acronym, if you were wondering. But I guess the real question is, what does this all mean?
Well, it’s exciting for all of us, and for our ministry. From traveling around the country, to television appearances, and now an award, we are granted so many opportunities to share God’s message, each and every day with an ever-growing number of people.
We would like to thank you all, our family of supporters, who have shared and helped grow our ministry through the years. Thank you for helping us share the message of Jesus Christ, our Savior, through music.
If you haven’t already, please listen to the free music player, or watch some of our videos on out YouTube Channel. And most importantly, please share our music and message with your friends, family, and anyone who will listen. Thanks!
You know how sometimes you hear a word one day, and then you hear it again the next day, and then two days later it pops up again? I just had that happen to me with the word “influence.” Each time I heard that word, influence, it was in the context of a conversation about leadership, and what it means to be a good leader. I think people define a good leader in many different ways, and I think many leaders think they are good according to their own definitions, but that might bea topic for a different blog . . .
Dictionary.com defines influence as: the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others. Have you ever had someone influence you? Did they compel you to change you actions, behaviors, or opinions? Was it for better or for worse? Did it make you stronger or weaker? Do you want to thank that person for the effect they had on you, or do you never want to be effected by them again? If you are like me, I’m sure you have had people in your life who have done both.
