“So now I’ll walk in the “good works” that have been prepared for me/ God’ll work ‘em out, I just trust in faith that He’s there for me” On his debut album, Kingdom People, Tedashii a.k.a Tdot, communicates his heart with boldness and authenticity wanting listeners to understand that we are people with a purpose bigger than ourselves.
Many have heard him on Lecrae’s debut album “Real Talk”, and on the 116 Clique Compilation album with tracks like Represent, In Ya Hood, and Impressed, but now with 19 tracks dedicated to unleashing what’s been on this brother’s heart you can expect a serious album.
“Kingdom People to me is a look into the practical side of walking out our Christian faith. From a testimonial and very introspective view, I desire to encourage and challenge us, through my own experiences and struggles which alot of believers also struggle with, to stand firm in our faith. I pray this album becomes more than another disc in your hip hop collection, but a tool that will be utilized fully by the Lord!”
With roots down in Houston, TX, Tedashii brings a distinct flavor you won’t find anywhere else. Southern bangers like “Houston We Have a Problem”, and introspective tracks like “This Song’s For You”, Kingdom People is an album that hits from all angles. Featuring production by Lecrae, Tony Stone, J.R., Mac, and others, plus guest spots by Flame, Lecrae, Trip Lee, J.R., Cam, and others, you want to make sure that you have copy in rotation.

Caves, the project led by Josh McCabe, was birthed out of a painful season in Josh’s life. Once leading a young adults ministry that reached thousands across Canada and the world, Josh reached a point in which God began to uproot several areas of Josh’s life and marriage, something that was an earnest prayer.
At 25 years old, Josh and his wife Kyla stepped away from ministry for a season, leaving behind everything that was built over the years. During this season, Josh recalls feeling much like David did when he fled from Saul to the caves. Feeling the uncertainty of what was ahead, he began to pour out his heart to God, and allow God to birth something fresh in him.
Since then, Caves has spent time on the road sharing the stage with artists such as Kari Jobe, For King & Country, Love & The Outcome, Newsboys, and more!
The songs from the debut album, Caves, reflect the journey from brokenness to restoration, and God’s presence even in the midst of doubt and confusion. Currently in the middle of finishing their second full-length album, Caves is ready to share songs from another season; a HIDDEN SEASON.

Ben Counsell is the student Ministries Pastor at Calvary Church in Woodstock. Big on personality and specializing in the over the top and ridiculous, at the end of the day Ben loves using his seemingly endless energy to see young people encounter God in real and impactful ways. Possibly his greatest achievement is somehow convincing his wife Kristy to continually put up with him for so long. In his spare time Ben enjoys spending too much time and money on guitar stuff, and still wants to be a super hero when (if) he grows up.
