Love and Outcome's Chris and Jodi Rademaker announced that they welcomed their first child this Valentine's Day. Named Milo Wolf Rademaker,the couple shared a picture of their son on their facebook page, with the caption: "Meet Mr. Milo Wolf Rademaker, the best Valentines Day gift ever. We are so in love with you."
Love & The Outcome's hit single "He is with Us" is also found on WORD Records Risen, the soundtrack to the new movie of the same name. Earlier last year, Love and Outcome released their latest EP, Ocean Way Sessions: Live. The 6-song EP (full-track listing below), was recorded at Ocean Way Studio in Nashville, TN, and features previously unreleased live versions of chart-topping hits from their debut album, such as "King of My Heart," which peaked at #13 on NCA, and "He Is With Us," their Top-5 hit and Christian ASCAP Award-winning debut, which was the highest selling debut single of 2013.
Also included on the EP is a live version of their most recent single, "Heart Like You," which saw standout support on impact date, and about which New Release Tuesday notes that, "Jodi's vocals soar to belt difficult high notes almost flawlessly, adding emotion as the song crescendos to a powerful ending." The review went on to say that the EP, "leaves L&TO fans ready for what's next in their journey."
Accompanying the EP release is a track-by-track commentary of their full-length debut album exclusively on Spotify, and available here. The EP and commentary are a fitting start to 2015, given their strong showing at the end of 2014. In November, the couple took home three Covenant Awards, awarded by the Canadian Gospel Music Association, including Group of the Year, Album of the Year (Love & The Outcome) and Seasonal Song of the Year ("Emmanuel"). They were also nominated for New Artist of the Year and performed at the 2014 Dove Awards.
The duo concluded 2014 with a headlining tour, spanning into Western Canada, and were also part of the K-LOVE Christmas Tour, which sold out 13 shows around the country. They will be joining Brandon Heath and Nichole Nordeman for select dates in February and March on The Table Tour (see dates below).
