Embark on a journey with Christian rock pioneers Kemper Crabb (Arkangel) and Frank Hart (Atomic Opera) as they journey through the landscapes of faith and sound that define Contemporary Christian Music. Our conversation uncovers the genesis of this genre, with Kemper during the Jesus Music era to Frank during the '90's, while also peering into the personal faith paths that carved their storied careers. From the vibrant energy of creating some of their best albums to the intimate reflections on how faith has interwoven with their artistry, these legends offer a compelling narrative of conviction and creativity that has left an indelible mark on the world of music.

Witness the alchemy of medieval melodies and the poetic depth of songwriting as Kemper delves into the creation of Arkangel's " Warrior," an album that embodies the resonance of historical influences within modern Christian rock. Frank, on the other hand, brings us into his artistic metamorphosis, detailing the path that fueled his transformation into a songwriter with a mission and that lead to the formation of his band, Atomic Opera, and thier four hard rocking albums.
