All.Above.North Featured In #LOV3RZ Magazine August Edition!

My name is JT and I am a Christian. I love music, and I love serving God through music.  That is why I started ‘all.above.north’.  ‘all.above.north’ is a Christian music project committed to sharing personal testimony about God through music.  The extract below is a little bit of the story of how I got here... Going into Christmas 2014, I was a ‘luke-warm’ Christian, I was in a job that I didn’t enjoy and I was struggling with the sudden onset of what I believed to be career related anxiety and stress – then God made his move. Now in the background to all this I was composing - so much in fact that in early 2015 I began to dream about doing music full time. I imagined getting a record deal and then going into my boss’ office with my resignation, safe in the knowledge that I was getting paid for my music.  But still all this composing was just dabbling in the process of recording music and the idea of making a Christian album never entered my mind. However I found the composing began to get much more traction when I finally resolved to commit to writing music for God's cause and glory. So I would work in my day-job Monday to Friday and write and compose on the weekend.  Then one day I was in my car sitting at traffic lights chatting to God about how all this music recording thing was going to work, with money and jobs and time etc.  




You know, really allowing the worldly things to crowd my thoughts, when suddenly I received a thought so vividly, profound and loud that I stopped my rantings in mid thought.  There and then God simply told me, "Build your ark."  I was like, “What does that mean?  God I am trying to sort out serious things like money and jobs and you tell me to “build my ark”?  I knew the Noah story, but when I got home that night I went back to my scriptures and read over it again.  It was then that I realized that God had told Noah to do something crazy and in the eyes of the world – stupid even. Build a massive boat in the middle of the land, and oh, then get two of every kind of living animal and put them on the boat, and then get in the boat with the animals and your family and wait.  Why?  Because I, God, will take care of bringing the water, and I will bring it in floods!  I realized then that God was telling me to shut up, trust Him - just write and record the album.  He will take care of the rest!

Young C Featured In #LOV3RZ Magazine August Edition!


Born and raised in Southern California, Young C bounced around from Riverside, Las Vegas, and Anaheim before finally settling in Beaumont, Ca. Chris has been rapping since 06’ and has been having minor success in the secular genres. Performing at regional venues and occasionally featured with local established artists, it was expected that Young C would be the next big name out of SoCal. 



In 2009, an unorganized mixed cd landed in the hands of a major label signed group. With their guidance and direction, Young C released his first major project entitled Phor Groath (“for growth”) in fall of 2011. The goal was to capture the personal growth of Chris as an artist, father, and a man. The reaction to this mixtape was bigger than expected as it sparked acknowledgement by the likes of 99.1 KGGI’s radio personality ODM. It was clear that Chris had just barely scratched the surface.

As years passed, Chris’ versatility began to grow. With a foundation of hip-hop, his rugged sound began to take on the characteristics of rock, rhythm and blues, and funk. Allowing him to incorporate real lyrics into music that appeals to all ages. Bottom line, he is the old sound in a new voice.

After recording Feather In The Sky, Michael Heinzelmann, Jack Scannell and I decided to follow it up with another song! I heard another track Mike and Jack done, and asked them immediately if I could put vocals and lyrics to it. They said sure, go for it, and I came up with Make It Fast, a song about doing wrong and dancing with the devil, Make It Fast means you better RUN TO GOD for forgiveness! 


When I hear the music they have, lyrics always come quickly (I feel it instantly!!!) So, once again Mixed and Mastered by Cedrick D. Mack, and a cool video done by Kellie Leigh (Yeah Yeah!!!) 
We all were quite pleased!!! International collaborations are a beautiful thing, so many people worldwide have great music, Michael and Jack's happens to be Hip Hop Jazz!!! Being from New Jersey and growing up listening to the finest R&B groups and vocalists, and some of the most creative bass lines ever heard, Michael Heinzelmann definitely knew what he was doing, and along with his keyboard work, and Jack's soulful sax and flute made it a match from Heaven! 

Our name we go by is GROOVE, INC. and my lyrics come out to be, what I call, Spiritual Jazz!!! 

We're currently working on song #3, so watch out!!!! I will be going to Berlin soon to meet these talented men, shake there hands and take a bunch of photos for future projects!
