Mixing Pop Media with the Catholic Message

We’re excited to offer you the following categories as opportunities to delve into pop culture from the perspective of being Catholic while also exploring what it means to be faith-filled in our choices and everyday lives.

We’ll also provide updates on events and issues relating to youth and young adults in the Catholic Church, particularly the upcoming phenomenon of World Youth Day 2016, an event gathering young adults from across the globe to Krakow, Poland, for a week of discovery, liturgy, friendship and fun!

The GR Blog is an online resource created by the staff of Goodness Reigns, and seeks to use media to inform and form youth and young adults on the Catholic faith.

Check out the Goodness Reigns: Share the Story Contest to learn how you may become a digital witness through media and art! For details, visit www.GoodnessReigns.com. Stay tuned!

    Michael James Mette will release his 4th studio album, Between the Lines on May 17,
    2017. The new album embraces an indie-pop sound with worship sensibilities.
    You are invited to preview the album. We have the tracks available at the following link:
    https://soundcloud.com/michaeljamesmette/sets/between-the-lines/s-dQXbs The first single for the album, Higher is currently available in iTunes and can be found
    here:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/higher-ep/id1219505064
    The music stands at the intersection of the Church and culture, drawing from pop influences like Michael Jackson and U2 to worship influences like Hillsong and Matt Maher. Vocal harmonies from Mette’s daughters combine with retro synths, ambient guitars and bombastic drums to create music that is passionate like a Friday Night and reverent like a Sunday Morning. The sound is both playfully innocent and deceptively deep.
    Michael’s unique style is most clear in the live events. The immersive concert experience combines technology, testimony, lights, and video to provide a backdrop for an encounter with the divine. With his family in tow, he has played over 300 events over the past 4 years, traveling to 44 of the 50 states.
    In the four years that the Mette family has been on the road, many things have changed. They have upgraded from a vintage Airstream trailer to a tour bus. They have added two new members to their family. The music has changed as well, growing from a solo acoustic show into a full family band.
    “I used to get annoyed by the whole ‘Von Trapp’ or ‘Partridge Family’ joke thing, but now I just kind of embrace it,” says Michael, who is artist, father, and bandleader. “I realized that my family size is definitely a blessing, not a curse.” Now, the family joins him on stage, each member sharing joy and vibrancy in a unique way.
    Michael can be reached at michael@michaeljamesmette.com
    or by calling 314-852-0003.
