Comprising of vocalist Jodi King and her bass player husband Chris Rademake, Love and Outome have received an astonishing 13 Covenant Awards nominations from GMA Canada. 2014 proved a banner year for the duo, as they were nominated for New Artist of the Year at the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards and most recently scored nominations for 6 Covenant Awards, including Group of the Year, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year ("King of My Heart"), Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year ("King of My Heart") and Seasonal Song of the Year ("Emmanuel"). The couple's energetic and dynamic live show was a highlight of the Dove Awards and will once again be on display at the Covenant Awards which take place November 13 in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Their debut album "Love and Outcome" features 11 brand new songs co-written in its entirety by King and Rademaker together with notable scribes such as Seth Mosley, Ben Glover, Jason Ingram, Dave Barnes and Sanctus Real's Matt Hammitt. The sound of Love and the Outcome combines Rademaker's rock sensibility (where he has had an admiration for Brit-rock bands such as Delirious(?)) with King's more soulful contemporary pop sounds. As a result, this duo has crafted a sound that is fresh, engaging and youthful yet not bypassing the integrant melodic fair that so much an infrastructure of Contemporary Christian music . Most striking is their lead single "He is With Us." Easily one of the best singles released this year, this propulsive pop sizzler is a theological snapshot of how the duo made it in their own scabrous pilgrimage over the last couple of years.
Their most recent single, "King of My Heart," peaked at #13 on NCA and follows closely on the heels of the stunning success of their Top-5 hit and Christian ASCAP Award-winning debut, "He is With Us," which was the highest selling debut single of 2013. Their radio success has been largely supported by the strength of their live shows and relentless touring schedule. As part of the WinterJam Spectacular tour, they played to more than 600,000 paid attendees and have crisscrossed the USA supporting artists including Matthew West, for KING & COUNTRY and Francesca Battistelli, among others. This fall they have provided direct support to Building 429 on the Fall 2014 leg of their "We Won't Be Shaken" Tour.
