4081

We’re back with another episode of The KingdomCore Podcast and we sat down with Tommy Green to talk about the new, self-titled HolyName debut! This was a very deep and vulnerable conversation with Tommy and we’re so grateful that he felt comfortable enough to share about his spiritual journey and personal pain over the past few years. We talked about the history of the new project, the song writing process, and his newfound love for the Eastern Orthodox Church.

5559

We are so excited to have Trevor Tyson on the podcast this week to laugh, kick back and get totally savage with each other over our Spotify Wraps and Apple Music Replays. Trevor is the host of The Trevor Talks Podcast where he interviews real people, about real topics, and real stories. He also is the main man behind the digital marketing agency, Transparent Media Company. Prepare for us to get deep and silly in an hour and a half.
