Brandon Ebel- Zoom In/Zoom Out

Brandon Ebel- Zoom In/Zoom Out

The mind of Brandon Ebel is quite a unique thing. He has an ability to rapidly shift his perspectives to analyze things at multiple levels, and has a strong bias toward action and a incredible eye for talent of all kinds. He seems to be all over the place but a better description might be that he has a laser focus and intensity that is consistent on a different horizon that perhaps only he understands. His special abilities to adapt and find consistency in extremely dynamic environments like the music industry have had a profound influence on many people over many years and seems very likely to continue.

Zach Riner - Sent By Ravens

Sent By Ravens lived together in a trailer in South Carolina and built a reputation for a killer live show. They got signed to Tooth & Nail and headed straight to Seattle to record their debut album with Aaron Sprinkle. That record released in 2010 with a swan song follow-up album in 2012. Although their time in the scene was short, they left a real mark with genuine music that still connects with many people today

Josh Porter - The Fear Of God

Josh Porter - The Fear Of God

Josh Porter is one of the most interesting frontmen from our scene and is of a particular type whose spirit of rebellion resonates across many mediums, one of which being Showbread’s music. Their legendary set at Furnace Fest last year seemed to be a testament to how deeply connected their fans were.

This podcast spends a lot of time analyzing the musical, relational and professional choices that bands make. We are often asked why we don’t get into people’s faith more on the podcast, given that it’s such a central theme. Certain people just have a more inherent energy toward the spiritual things, and Josh Porter is one of those people. In this case, he has a new book called Death To Deconstruction, and it seemed like an ideal opportunity to give more perspective into how Josh’s mind works.

Ryan Kirby/Fit For A King - Times Like This

Ryan Kirby/Fit For A King - Times Like This

Fit For a King is one of the most successful bands in the modern era of Solid State Records since their signing in 2012. They have worked incredibly hard to build the band’s following in both the physical & digital realms. They come from a long history of shared values & sounds with other Solid State bands and have integrated well into the larger metalcore scene. They continue to build a presence in the even wider space of metal in the digital space. Ryan Kirby is the lead vocalist, lyric writer and co-manager of the band, and I think you will find this conversation to an illuminating perspective into his mindset and why it all works so well

Becoming The Archetype - Breaking The Silence

Jason Wisdom himself falls into a certain archetype. A Tooth & Nail kid with a uniquely-wired mind who was inspired by bands like MXPX and Zao - and the range of possibilities for mixing various styles, genres, and mediums of expression that is permitted in the underground scene. Becoming the Archetype began in 2005 and released records until 2012. They are now back in full force after a decade-long hiatus with a new concept record entitled Children of The Great Extinction.

Please join us as we discuss the entire history of the band from its humble origins to the recently-released 6th full-length release on Solid State.

Wolves at The Gate: Eulogies and Building Longevity

Wolves at The Gate: Eulogies and Building Longevity

Steve and Ben from Wolves At The Gate have been at this game for a long time, and their band is continually gaining momentum, skill, fans, press coverage & relationships. With the release of their 5th album, Eulogies, they are seeing the compounding rewards of those efforts. The band has been able to maintain a clear vision and knows exactly who they are. Their sound and approach to ministry have been unwavering, yet their music progresses. They remain DIY and hands-on in their organization. They seem to have made the transition from a new & upcoming Solid State band to what you would call a veteran, influential Solid State act. In this episode, we discuss some of the changes they have seen in the the business & technology and also the evolution of their process

HTD Part II Stephen Keech- Walking into Dream Come True

This episode is a continuation of the previous Haste The Day chapter with Jimmy Ryan, who was not a Tooth & Nail kid but found his way into the scene. Jimmy helped build a legendary Solid State band and then walked away from his dream. This left a giant hole which provided the opportunity for a Tooth & Nail kid if there ever was one, the multi-talented Stephen Keech, to walk into to a fairytale dream-come-true scenario and knock it out of the park - taking Haste The Day to an even higher level of success.

HTD Part I- Jimmy Ryan Building and Moving On

HTD Part I- Jimmy Ryan Building and Moving On

Jimmy Ryan, the original lead singer of Haste The Day, is in a rare category. His band was a breakout hit in the pinnacle of the Tooth & Nail/Solid State golden age, but Jimmy was NOT a Tooth & Nail kid. The rest of his band certainly were as they were youth group kids from a nice Indianapolis suburb when they joined forces with Jimmy. He was considerably older than them and, for better or worse, became the "tour dad.” Jimmy may not have grown up as a Tooth & Nail kid, but he was a perfect fit to continue the tradition of Solid State bands who would bring the intensity to the mission of mosh and ministry; he even ended up working at the label for a season!

FSF: The Moon is Down 20 YEAR! w Chad, Steve, and Nick

The Moon is Down is one of the most influential albums in the entire Tooth & Nail catalog. Of course it is a fan favorite, but this one also checks the box in a big way as a named influence by countless artists, drummers, guitarists, song arrangers, and vocalists. Many of whom cite this album as helping them expand their minds to new possibilities and causing them to have creative breakthroughs. This conversation covers primarily the lead up to, capture, and impact of this classic album but also some great stories and interaction between the members and Matt. We loved making this episode and are honored to have had the opportunity.

Ivoryline, Swept Away

Ivoryline, Swept Away

Ivoryline is one of those bands that accomplished a lot in a short time but due to the circumstances of reality did not have a career that was able to reach its full maturity. Their fairly short run gives us all that feeling of slight tragedy but also leaves us with a nostalgic feeling of what might have been or still could be. Ivoryline did 2 amazing records with Aaron Sprinkle, had rock radio hits, got on some great tours around the world, and just as quickly lost momentum as the scene, economy, and people's tastes began to change. At the request of many fans, Vocalist Jeremy Gray and Matt take some time to discuss this iconic band from inception to the end.

Doug Van Pelt: Enthusiast and founder of HM Magazine

Doug Van Pelt: Enthusiast and founder of HM Magazine

Doug Van Pelt has been focused on our music scene well before it ever existed. He was drawn to heavy music and then Christian music since he was a kid in the 70's. It’s safe to say that he has witnessed the entire phenomenon. What’s more, he literally made it his business to pay attention and share it with others. Doug is very entrepreneurial and began his own publication, HM, in the 80's. Doug is a phenomenal writer and journalist, but not a music “critic” so much as an enthusiast. He is 

deeply analytical and a passionate fan. He sees special moments, people, groups, & stories and has spent his life trying to share the special experiences, meaning & beauty he finds in the heavy music & spiritual communities. Doug has observed and covered this movement expertly for the last 40 years.

The Fire Itself: Sean of Phinehas & the Gamer Generation

The Fire Itself: Sean of Phinehas & the Gamer Generation

It used to be that you could tell the reaction to an album by things like first week sales or reviews in major publications, but in 2021 it's a lot different. You can still feel the energy around an important release like this one, but the buzz comes from places like “reaction videos” from prominent YouTubers and other new media. It's a little bit of a different landscape, but there is still just an air about some records that indicates something special, some type of credibility, and The Fire Itself definitely seems to be one of those records.

Sean from Phinehas has a sharp and unique mind that comes from what could be called the gamer generation or a millennial, but he shares qualities with emerging and younger generations in a way that is relevant to his approach to art, creativity, and engineering. Sean & I talk about his background and how he was and still is a gamer and how that has helped him with networking & forming relationships. We also talk about how music has evolved and how people consume it evolved, especially around the time of MySpace and digital music. Of course, we extensively discuss The Fire Itself album that is getting a tremendous amount of attention, the song-writing process and how Sean’s list-writing becomes songs.

Aaron Sprinkle - The Creative Alpha in the Room

Aaron Sprinkle - The Creative Alpha in the Room

Aaron Sprinkle and his brother Jesse began playing in the band Poor Old Lu 30 years ago in 1991. Poor Old Lu broke up in 1996, but Aaron was already well on his way to building an absolutely legendary career of influence on our scene. He’s been a guest on this pod before where we covered the early days of Tooth & Nail, but today we will cover his entire career as a producer. Aaron is also a top-tier songwriter and artist who has never spent any significant time touring and building his individual career. As such, he has been able to engage hands-on with many extremely talented artists over & over again for more than 20 years in a way that would never be possible by pursuing a single band full-time.  It’s common for bands to report that he is really was an additional member creatively in that he composed, produced, recorded, sang on, played on, and in a variety of other ways shaped some of the most important music in our scene.  After all this time, Aaron is now focusing more on his individual career and interacting with fans, something he has never really done until now.

JB Brubaker of ABR, The Scene’s Biggest Export

JB Brubaker of ABR, The Scene’s Biggest Export

August Burns Red is a creation born of our scene, and by all accounts one of the most successful outputs of the whole culture. ABR has sold over a million records in North America alone, has 2 Grammy nominations, and has played over 2000 in shows in 45 countries while having no member changes in the last 18 years. It's astonishing to see what can come out of a very small group of people with shared interests that begin by goofing off together but made steady progress over many years refining their machine and discovering their purpose.The groundwork laid by first and second generation bands was dirty and often dangerous to navigate personally and professionally. ABR was just the right group of individuals that came at just the right time to avoid the common traps, failure modes and gatekeepers by always focusing on the task at hand and by taking our culture's values & aesthetics much farther & wider than any of us or them could have imagined. Huge props to Brent and the whole band, but on this episode I wanted to focus on JB. I’ve learned a lot from him and plan to continue to do so as ABR continues to innovate and deliver at an incredibly high level.

Josh Kemble - The Dogwood Way

Josh Kemble - The Dogwood Way

Josh Kemble is someone who instantly strikes me as having two of my favorite qualities, mindfulness and authenticity. Combined, they give the experience of being present in a conversation while able to tie in multiple layers of meaning. It's almost as if Josh is aware of the experience he is creating in others, and that's key in crafting music or art that is going to connect with people.

From the stories I've heard over the year and the way they are discussed, and from a few conversations I've had with Josh, it's obvious that Dogwood was a very self- aware and principled band whose micro-culture navigated the emergence of the San Diego pop punk scene of the late 90’s, and then was able to become part of the canon of important artists in our scene.

Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids: Pioneer in a Parallel Universe

Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids: Pioneer in a Parallel Universe

In 1995, The Get Up Kids began exploring their surroundings and expanding their horizons in much the way that early Tooth & Nail and Solid State artists did. In the midwest emo scene, they were sharing the stages with bands of seemingly all genres, while making friends in many other states. They didn’t ask permission for what they did, and no one stopped them from blazing new pathways that would connect the regional underground scenes together and really open up the all-ages movement. 

Matt Pryor, TGUK frontman, currently hosts a Vagrant Records podcast series celebrating 25 years of Vagrant releases. This conversation with Matt gives us a great opportunity to look at the Christian piece of the all-ages scene through the eyes of a personality similar to many on this show, but also with an outsider’s perspective.

Uncle Mark

Uncle Mark

Mark Salomon is a legend and forefather of the Tooth & Nail scene. He was pioneering new artistic and cultural territory while being iconic, professional and a showman 

all at the same time. 

He has been massively influential from The Crucified and Stavesacre to Neon Horse and his podcast, Never Was, and his reputation for having solid personal relationships across decades with so many other legends.

What a rock singer, a podcaster, and great relationships all have in common is the ability to connect & communicate ideas from your mind though your voice.  Everyone loves Mark's voice regardless of what he is doing. If it is his voice expressing his mind, it just works.

Steve Kleisath- Bizzaro

Steve Kleisath- Bizzaro

Welcome back to labeled, the stories rumors and legends of tooth and nail records, I’m your host Matt carter and today’s episode features the not only legendary but iconic drummer Steve Kleisath from Strong arm, Shai Halud, further seeems forever, and the darling fire.  

He is a legend because he had tremendous  influence on records that were tremendously influential and his style inspired many. 


He is iconic because he comes in a package that’s different than you might expect.  He  plays left handed on a reverse setup drum kit and plays quirky parts that seem to come from another dimension.  This on top of the fact that Steve has become an a expert at many things including poker and holding world record video game scores.  He clearly has a special mind that accesses information and makes decisions in a uniqe way that has had a big impact. 


I’ve never spoken to Steve and was very happy to have the opportunity to explore his mind a bit and I think you will enjoy that too. 


Strong-arm - council of perfection, 

slick shoes - rusty, 

stretch arm strong - all we’ve lost, 

Velour 100 - Your Sky

Terminal: A False Start

Terminal: A False Start

Terminal can be described in many ways. One and Done, One Hit Wonder, Casualty of the industry, a career that seemed over before it began. Similar to Beloved in many ways, with a single album destined for an explosive followup the bands had seemingly failed before their future fanbase could materialize. The bands were able to achieve great things quickly, but weren’t equipped to handle being a touring band. Had they made it just a little further, big things were likely to happen. But instead the band stopped, the members grew up, grew as people, and learned how to be friends. A tragedy and celebration brought the band back and they've become an active again. So its very cool to be experiencing new beginning for Terminal.


Travis Bryant is an exceptional vocalist and front man who brings real vulnerability to his music and to this conversation, I hope you will get as much from it as I did.

Hopesfall: A Should've been Solid State Band

Hopesfall: A Should've been Solid State Band

Hopesfall is a very influential post hardcore/spirit filled hardcore band. They emerged in the North Carolina scene and the greater Southeast with bands like Beloved, Stretch Armstrong, he is legend, Underoath and Luti-Kriss around 2000. they were a Furnacefest band and a Cornerstone band.

  They were signed to Takehold Records who was acquired by Tooth and Nail in 2003 but due to some changes in the bands lineup and other factors, Hopesfall rejected the opportunity to be on Solidstate at that time and was allowed to instead sign to Trustkill records.    This conversation begins with me and Brandon Ebel talking about how he wanted Hopesfall, but it wasn't meant to be.     LABELED FEST:

Joe Musten of Beloved and Advent: The Purist

Joe Musten is the heartbeat of Beloved. He is known for doing all the lead screaming while being an absolutely brutal drummer. I think of Joe as an uncompromising and incorruptible purist and someone who sees the whole picture. He is driven to authentically express his passion in every situation, from live performance, to the studio recordings, to fan interaction, to band member, friend or podcast guest.

Straight Edge South Carolina Hardcore: Chris McLaine of Stretch Armstrong

One the first releases ever on Solid State, Stretch Armstrong were pioneers of the scene that was emerging in the southeast in the late 90’s. Known for being straight edge and positive, Chris McLaine was one of the most engaging front men of the era. His message was always to include and to encourage and to make a positive impact. From the beginning Chris truly understood the what a scene was and that its life-force was found at the community level.

Big Shoes To Fill: Scott Mellinger of Zao

Big Shoes To Fill: Scott Mellinger of Zao

Scott Mellinger joined the legendary band Zao to replace Brett Detar as a musician between the albums, When Blood and Fire Bring Rest and Liberate Te Ex Inferis. He immediately brought a new sonic element helping them arrive at their signature sound, but his influence didn't stop there. Despite being in a band with big personalities, Scott emerged as a leader and became the band's stabilizing point guard. Zao's streak of longevity was truly unexpected given their early years and the amount of environmental change that has occurred since the late ’90s, making them about as legendary as it gets in our world. Scott's a great thinker and I always feel it's a privilege to speak with him.

"Git Snake Bit" with The Showdown

"Git Snake Bit" with The Showdown

The Showdown is a very special band who was able to break a lot of new ground and turn a lot of heads by taking what was going on in heavy music and amplifying it to extreme levels by adding new layers of performance that mixed art and crowd interaction with humor to create a symphony of chaos that played the audience like an instrument. Their front man David Bunton is a legend in the scene when it comes to stage persona. The Showdown blended metal with classic rock, and were a big part of the dirty southern heavy scene along with He Is Legend and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.

It's their first new music in 17 years.  This seemed like a good occasion to hang out with the whole band and look all the way back to the mid 90's as this group of best friends in high school, who never had a lineup change and were first generation Tooth & Nail kids just trying to play cover songs until they got their first big opportunity at Cornerstone '98.

Chapter 24: Underoath - Kids From Florida

Chapter 24: Underoath - Kids From Florida

Chapter 24

There is no question that Underoath is the biggest Christian heavy band of our scene. They completely broke the ceiling of what was assumed was possible beyond our scene, but what are all the factors that go into a landmark success story like that of Underoath? In a sense, this podcast so far is a list and account of many of those factors, or maybe it's just "They’re Only Chasing Safety" was directly born out of the Tooth & Nail culture. It was a perfect wave that had been built by thousands of people collaborating and supporting one another and as they grew and gained momentum, the wave was ready to break, and Underaoth was the perfect band to harness its energy and break our scene wide open into the mainstream and become Tooth & Nail's biggest rock band to date.

My favorite viewpoint for this story is that of Tim McTague's, who at that time was something like Underoath's quarterback. Not only is he a giant of an artist and musician, but at age 21, he took the responsibility to handle their business. As we have seen in this series, the biggest pitfalls are often managing the managers, agents, labels, lawyers, promoters, pressure from other bands, and fans, all of whom desperately want something from the band, and in Underoath's case, turn the intensity of all that up about 10x, starting with the release of "They're Only Chasing Safety."

Not only was Josh Moore focused on his goal of becoming a musician from a very early age, but he was also recognizably good as an early teenager who eventually was noticed by older kids at his school who picked him up and made him their lead singer. Finishing high school by an alternative program, Josh is touring as Beloved's frontman at 18 years old, and by 21 that journey would be over and Josh would move in a different direction musically and personally.

Chapter 23: Beloved: One and Done

Chapter 23: Beloved: One and Done

Chapter 23.1

Beloved’s 2003 debut, "Failure On," is a legendary album in the Solid State Records catalog. They had so much in their favor: made a flawless debut record, had an incredibly promising trajectory, had all been friends since childhood, and described themselves as family, were respected in the scene that was exploding and supportive, and were a priority to the best record label in the Christian heavy music space in the middle of its most powerful moment.

Dusty Redmond gives his point of view as to how after just a few tours, and amid the anticipation of the entire scene for their follow up record, the Beloved train was derailed. Since then, Beloved has existed in conversations in greenrooms, tour busses, and record industry people as a “what if” band. There were occasionally feint rumors of possible reunions, but alas, after nearly 15 years, most people have given up hope.

You would think that it would take something extraordinary to stop the incredible momentum that Beloved had in 2004, but some things can be both powerful and fragile at the same time.

The guys in Emery grew up as far from punk and underground culture as you could get. Not until their twenties did they even find out about this whole scene. But they made up for lost time, and thanks to the foundations laid by the earlier bands, the explosion of this new scene, and the peak of the Tooth & Nail merger with EMI, Emery rode a wave of success and got used to it a little too quickly.

Chapter 18: Cory Brandan - Band Dude for Life

Chapter 18

This isn't a Norma Jean episode per se, because of Norma Jean’s legend and significance in the heavy music scene. SolidState and Tooth & Nail history is much too large to begin to cover in an episode, so we will cover it from a variety of angles over time. But as far as Norma Jean goes, Cory Brandan is certainly a very central figure, and his career in this scene intersects multiple important bands and he is one of the very few individuals that has been able to find a way to thrive (although sometimes merely survive) and contribute for 20 years.  Cory has been able to find or create  paths when it seemed that none existed. What's even more hard to imagine is that Cory stayed focused on creating music and found his way despite the fact that by 1994 at the age of 18 he had already had his first child.  I talked to Cory about his journey and mindset beginning with his first band Eso Charis, his connection to Living Sacrifice, and how he eventually became the leader of the almighty Norma Jean.

There was a very special time when the market was not overcrowded with touring musical acts, but the scene was established enough that there was a great hunger for independent and expressive music. If you had a message, some talent, and were really willing to sacrifice, you could be a touring band. Even without a label or fans, you could get shows and win fans. And if you did that, perhaps a label would notice.

It was a very open-minded and supportive time. If you were a Christian kid looking to have some artistic boundaries broken from your conformist upbringing and you like raw music, Showbread might just kill you.

Chapter 16: KJ-52 and BEC Recordings

Chapter 16: KJ-52 and BEC Recordings

Chapter 16

KJ-52 is a Christian rapper who struggled to get his career off the ground in the 90’s after being rejected by his dream label and dropped early on by a major label and then found his home among the rest of us punk, DIY and hardcore folks.  KJ embodies many of the same values that we often discuss here but his music fit much better in the BEC and CCM worlds so he is a terrific individual to help us understand the similarities and differences in that world and the one we spend most of our time in.

BEC recordings is the CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) leaning imprint of Tooth & Nail Records and plays a very important role in expanding the company, generating revenue, and enabling Tooth & Nail/Solid State to have a larger and more competent staff.  Admittedly CCM music has a reputation for being cheesy or unoriginal, but like most things, if you look closer you will find that there is much more nuance than you’d expect.

Chapter 15: Anneka Winters' Front Row Seat

Chapter 15: Anneka Winters' Front Row Seat

Chapter 15

Today's episode is intended to give you an inside and personal perspective on Tooth & Nail, Brandon Ebel, and the music scene as the label grew into its 2000’s dominance. Anneka Winters was an accountant at Tooth & Nail Records from 1998 to 2004, but she was much more than just an accountant. She assisted and worked with Jim Worthen and also became Brandon's Personal Assistant, she lived in a communal house with other Tooth & Nail employees, and she was around through the biggest staff and culture change in the company, driven in part by the merger with EMI, the shift in genres, and the success of BEC Records.

Chapter 14: Anberlin

Chapter 14: Anberlin

Chapter 14

Today we continue on our early 2000’s journey with the very important and pivotal Anberlin (Stephen Christian).  I refer to Anberlin as pivotal, because they began as a pop punk band in the vein of late 90's Tooth & Nail, but made an image and musical pivot at just exactly the right time, along with a crop other emerging bands from the southeast, which in turn helped Tooth & Nail pivot and transition to a new era.  Tooth & Nail has just acquired Takehold Records and its founder, Chad Johnson, to be head of A&R, and his connections began to pay off.

Chapter 13: The Early 2000's Through the Eyes of Watashi Wa

Chapter 13

We now continue to move into the 2000’s era of Tooth & Nail Records. Brandon has sold half of the company to EMI and has purchased and absorbed Takehold Records, which brought its founder Chad Johnson on staff. Heavy music was continuing to explode, but also, in keeping with the Tooth and Nail style, Brandon and the staff continued to try to break and include a very wide variety of artists, including a very happy and poppy rock outfit from San Luis Obispo, CA, called Watashi Wa.

Fronted by yet another young man who grew up as a Tooth & Nail kid, Seth Roberts joins Labeled to help paint the picture of that time and the unique challenges they faced. The story is of one dream fulfilled, and of another only partially fulfilled.

Chapter 12

Demon Hunter’s origin story is shrouded in mystery and there are no shortage or rumors. Some that we will confirm today. Now that we have a good background knowledge or Ryan Clark Jon Dunn, Brandon, and the Tooth and Nail Culture at the time, the stage is set for this fun story. We continue where we left off 2 weeks ago, and also cover the continuation of the EMI merger, and the rewards that would come from taking some serious risks.

Chapter 11: Tooth and Nail Kids

Chapter 11

Tooth and Nail had been sowing seeds and developing a culture of the better part of a decade when EMI acquired half of the company. Now, not only were they financially empowered, but their own culture was beginning to pay dividends. Kids that had been fans and following the label closely, now began to feed back into the system. This episode is a look at what it means to have been a first generation Tooth and Nail Kid, aspiring to participate in the culture you loved.

Chapter 10: A Time of Transition and the Rise of Solid State Records

Chapter 10

By the year 2000, EMI Records had been pursuing Tooth and Nail to buy half of the company and was already doing its distribution. New genres were emerging, Tooth and Nail was moving offices and the staff was beginning to undergo major changes as well. Solid State Records was gaining momentum with acts like Living Sacrifice and Zao as heavy music was becoming more widely accepted. Roy Culver, who worked for EMI was hired and moved to Seattle to be the first Solid State employee and its A&R.  Roy explains what the time of transition was like from his view and recounts stories of Solid State's successes and difficulties.

With the departure of MxPx, the now commercially successful label was in need of another breakout success to sustain and continue to thrive. They found it in The O.C. Supertones, a true underdog story of a highly motivated, positive, and zealous group of guys that just happened to stumble into a genre and culture combination that seemed as if it was meant to be.

Chapter 5

Cornerstone Festival grew to a massive level by the mid 2000’s with Tooth and Nail day being one of its main features. The cultures of Tooth and Nail and Cornerstone were a perfect fit. The environment that they created was both the incubator and launching pad for countless careers and also a wonderful place of development for its attendees, staff, and volunteers. The festival did in fact come to an end, but it by no means did it fail.

Chapter 4: The Rise of Cornerstone

Chapter 4: The Rise of Cornerstone

Chapter 4

As it turns out, Cornerstone Festival had a lot more than a good lineup of bands; it has its own rich history and undergirding philosophy born out of The Jesus People USA and John Herrin, the festival’s director. Much of this philosophy and the festival’s audience was a direct inspiration to Tooth and Nail Records. Brandon Ebel traveled there in 1990 with a backpack and left with the clear notion that there needed to be more of what was going on at Cornerstone.
