Is it just me, or does it feel like school just keeps getting more expensive!?

Audio Adrenaline

Audio Adrenaline has been disbanded for years now, but their musical legacy lives on in their 15 years of hits, that helped craft a generation of other Christian artists.

Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss met at Kentucky Christian College (now Kentucky Christian University). Stuart and his brother David were putting together a rock band and McGinniss struck up a friendship with the pair. Along with David and Barry Blair they launched the band, originally called A-180. The band recorded two independent albums before signing a record contract with ForeFront Records. It was then that they officially launched Audio Adrenaline.

Christian music would never be the same - or youth camp.  Hits like Big House and We're A Band propelled the band to the forefront of a thriving Christian rock scene in the mid-90s.  They were headliners for every Christian festival on the planet - and toured ceaselessly.  Ultimately, that took a toll on their families and relationships.  Ultimately it was exhaustion and family strain that led to the end of Audio Adrenaline.

In 2004, AA created the Hands & Feet Project, building an orphanage and ministry in Haiti. They still work closely with this project that has met many needs, especially since the tragic earthquake.

Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss more recently found the Know Hope Collective. Know Hope is a community of song writers that work to dig deeper into the question "What is worship?"
