They may have a Grammy nomination and Stellar Award on their resume, but it took four albums for 21:O3 to be fully confident in the music they are releasing to the world.
What started as a trio of teenagers singing about the Lord for their generation has evolved into a duo of young men cementing their place in the gospel music industry. Evin Martin, 30, and Torrence Greene, 27, are pushing boundaries with unique sounds on their latest album, Outsiders, that feels different than anything they have released in the past.
"Before there was always a little trepidation because we were looking for the saints to accept us. Like, 'please like us and what we have,'" Evin admitted to The Christian Post. "Now we're just comfortable being outsiders. This is our sound, we don't sound like anybody else, and we're ok with that." more >>

"Sound of Music" the film with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and Diane Sawyers hosted an affecting ABC remembrance of it last evening, interviewing both lead actors. The story of a pious but spiritually restless nun/nanny who falls in love and marries the war hero widower father of her young charges amid the Nazi takeover of Austria has been universalized in global popular culture. Even children in nightmarish North Korea sing songs from the musical, Sawyer incredulously reported.
Critics, as the Sawyer program noted, have dismissed the tale as a "sugar coated fantasy," an escapist and feel-good love story set amid the glories of the Austrian Alps, in charming Salzburg, full of songs children can sing, with a dash of slapstick Nazi danger and nun comedy lathered in. Certainly it's not a serious drama, supposedly.
But "Sound of Music," based loosely on the real-life von Trapp family, who did indeed escape their native Austria after its merger with the Third Reich, contains several quite serious themes that together make it a Christian allegory about vocation, family, marriage, citizenship, patriotism and the moral response to evil. more >>
