Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

EMI and Youth Content Provider, STEELROOTS, Partner to Create

Video Reality Series Featuring FOREFRONT RECORDS’

Newest Chart-Topping Band, PHILMONT


New “Philmont Rising” Webisodes Added Monthly


Nashville, TN – Forefront Records and Philmont joined forces with Steelroots this spring for a new original online series. The reality webisodes give viewers a rare and often humorous glimpse into the life of an international touring band.

“We only ‘work’ 20 minutes out of the day so there is a whole lot of downtime,” laughs singer/guitarist Scott Taube. “Probably about 85 percent of our entire day is waiting for the show to begin. So you’ll get to see all of our shenanigans and how we amuse ourselves.”

Launched in April, “Philmont *Rising” offers a new webisode on the 13th of each month during this year-long campaign. Episode 1 (“Who the Heck Is Philmont?”) and Episode 2 (“Our First Taste of Tour”) are currently available at  Future episodes will include video from Philmont’s upcoming shows in the Netherlands with Michael W. Smith and David Crowder Band in June, as well as Flevo Fest in August. 

“We couldn’t be happier about working with Forefront Records and Philmont to bring this new content to the Steelroots community,” says Bryan Smerdon, director of programming for Steelroots. “They produce relevant music that appeals to today’s generation and are the perfect partner for the Steelroots brand. It’s clear that both Forefront and Philmont have set a high standard of excellence in their work, and we’re excited to be collaborating with them on this project.”

The “Philmont *Rising” webisodes can be found at

About Philmont

Philmont began when singer Scott Taube and guitarist Josiah Prince connected following the breakup of their former local outfits. After many self-booked tours and one-off dates to support an ambitious independent release, the group landed a performance at Christian music’s ultimate event, the Cornerstone Festival. It was at Cornerstone that Philmont caught the attention of EMI/Forefront Records, inking a record deal in early 2008. That summer the band debuted a digital EP, Oh Snap, and then released its first full-fledged label project, of the same title, April 21, 2009. Produced by Rob Hawkins (Fireflight, Jackson Waters), the album was met with applause from critics who cited, “This stuff is solid” ( and “What a first impression . . . Philmont is a perfect addition to the record collections of All-American Rejects and Relient K fans” (The Phantom Tollbooth). This summer the band will make appearances at select festivals including Ichthus, Cornerstone, Sonshine Fest and Soul Fest. For more information, visit
