Since signing to BEC Recordings in 2001, Kutless has transformed from a new rock band to a staple artist in the industry that has multi-format, top-charting hits, sold millions of records and more than eight million streams. Launched by original members Jon Micah Sumrall (lead vocals) and guitarist James Mead, the band formed first as a modern rock/worship band at Warner Pacific College in Portland in 2000. Kutless has two RIAA Gold-selling albums for Strong Tower and Live from Portland. The band has had 12 No. 1 radio singles across all formats including their major hits "Strong Tower,” "What Faith Can Do" and "Carry Me To The Cross.”

After more than 15 years together and reaching fans around the world, Kutless continues to be focused on sharing the Gospel with a younger generation that is searching for answers.
“We really believe that music can make a difference in people’s lives,” shares Jon Micah Sumrall. “Music is an incredibly powerful tool that can break down walls and allow us to communicate a message of hope to people who may not listen otherwise. We are still recording and performing because we really do believe it makes a difference. We hear stories all the time from people who share with us how a concert or a song has radically impacted their life, and it’s these types of testimonies that keep us going year after year.”
In 2012, Kutless formed EOTA Ministries (End of The Age) to expand their evangelistic outreach around the globe. EOTA is the non-profit arm that aids Kutless in hosting large, free outreach concerts and events. In 2015, they partnered with other organizations to bring concerts to Kiev, Ukraine and other cities for six events - the largest of their kind in that country. The next year, Kutless returned to 11 cities in Ukraine as well as in Belarus, a communist country, where more than 100,000 heard the Gospel and over 40,000 commitments to Christ.
With their upcoming album ALPHA / OMEGA, Kutless has created a collection of rock and worship songs of both original and cover tracks that are true to who the band has been for the last 17 years. They wanted to create a project that would engage the Christian community and have the greatest impact. The songs are true to who the band is at their core - rock and worship. ALPHA / OMEGA features a new version of “Strong Tower” as well as the debut radio single “King of My Heart.” 

  1. Your Great Name
  2. Strong Tower (Reprise)
  3. King of My Heart
  4. Cornerstone
  5. You are Love
  6. Great are You Lord
  7. Your Love Awakens Me
  8. Shepherd of My Soul
  9. Gave It All (I Surrender All)
  10. No Wonder (Roar of the Rugged Cross)

I don't know about you, but I've always been a fan of great worship music. It evokes a certain emotion and when a good worship song is sung, be it alone or as a group, you feel what it is mean to do - worship. Kutless is one rock band that I've always love to sing their songs. Granted, I am pretty tone death, but when I listen or sing their songs, I think the world have subsided, and it's just me and our Lord.  In their latest album, Alpha / Omega, it's true to what they believe in worship. It's for the King of their and our hearts. Though only one is a new track, the rest are classics or cover tracks that spoke loud. Some of my favorites are Cornerstone, Your Great Name, Strong Tower, No Wonder. Add in King of My Heart, Alpha / Omega is one album that should be one of your home, mp3 and church staple.

"You are my strong tower, a shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty, everlasting King
You are my strong tower, fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy, and Your face is all I see

  1. I love Strong Tower. A favorite of my children’s too

  2. I've already been singing King of Heart and Your Love Awakens me as I hear them every day while I drive. I love the sound of this band and the lead singer's voice is amazing.

    1. LOL> I love to sing praise songs, but only in private. Trust me when I say, no one wants to hear me sing!!

  3. I really loved this song. There are many friends of mine who need to hear this message. Great blog! I also like the fact they are from my town. I didn't know they started at Warner, my youngest daughter graduated from there a few years ago.

  4. It’s a beautiful song. I love the words and the music!

  5. Praise and worship music is my favorite. I can listen all day. Thank you for the review and chance.

  6. I've heard King of My Heart somewhere before... not sure if at church or on the radio. I would like to hear Gave It All.

    1. I first heard it on the radio, and praise teams all over had started picking it up in their praise lineup!
