The Cashmans Release Highly Anticipated Sophomore Album, BURN

"Last year's We Love Christian Music Award's recipient for The Next Big Thing Award, The Cashmans, have released their much-anticipated sophomore full-length album, Burn! 

Produced by Grammy-nominated and two time Dove award-winning producer, Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Ellie Holcomb, TobyMac, MUTEMATH, Kristian Stanfill), this 12-track follow-up project to The Cashmans' debut album City of God (2018) is a breath of fresh air in the contemporary Christian music scene with its innovative pop, worship, and indie acoustic collaborations..."



An Album That Reflects on Jesus

"What You Need To Know
Jonathan and Britney Cashman married in 2006. Since then, the two have been making music. Together, they make up the new husband and wife duo worship duo The Cashmans. In 2014, they followed God's calling to reach churches and communities with music. Earlier this year, The Cashmans won The Next Big Thing award at NewReleaseToday's 8th Annual We Love Awards. Now, the duo has just dropped Burn, their second full-length album (12 tracks total). The new album features songs like "Only God Knows," "Your Word Is Alive," and title track "Burn."

What it Sounds Like
The Cashmans have their own unique sound, which is so nice to hear in today's music landscape..."



City of God Now Available on All Digital Platforms!

About City of God:  

The City of God project was produced by Grammy nominated, Dove Award winning Producer of the Year Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets, Chris August, Hawk Nelson), Grammy, Dove nominated producer/mixer Barry Weeks (Kelly Clarkson, Backstreet Boys, Francesca Battistelli), and Austin Cannon (Vertical Worship, Lincoln Brewster, Christy Nockels), who produced the "City of God" and "All Things New" remixes. City of God features songwriting collaborations with Eskelin, Grammy nominee Sarah Hart (Amy Grant, Celtic Woman, Matt Maher, Laura Story, Audrey Assad), and Dove Award winner, SESAC Country Song of the Year award winner, and CMA & ACM nominee Brian White (Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Rodney Atkins, Rascal Flatts), among others. 

City of God runs the stylistic gamut from CCM pop and Americana to heartfelt worship. The Cashmans imbue each song on the album with an intimate spiritual vitality that comes from spending time in the Word. But more than that, the project as a whole lays a firm foundation of worship and discipleship.        

For the Cashmans, who met in 2004 when they were both playing their songs in the Boston music scene, and who dated while ministering, discipleship is far from being just a tagline or byword--it has become a long-term commitment and a way of life. 

"Britney and I are both products of personal discipleship, which is why we have such a heart for it," Jonathan Cashman explains. "That is the focus of "City of God," and a number of the other songs on this album. As followers of Jesus, this is our response to the gospel--going into the harvest and engaging in the Great Commission."  

The compelling, cello-embellished contemporary pop-folk ballad, "City of God," co-written with Hart (co-writer of Amy Grant's "Better Than a Hallelujah"), is an intense call to action. We will go, to the world He so loves / Oh, we will go, building the city of God, Jonathan and Britney declare as they encourage listeners to come along on this journey of faith. Fans will also enjoy a thumping, drum-and-bass embellished EDM (Electric Dance Mix) bonus track version of the song, and they can look forward to a music video version, which is slated to release in conjunction with the CD.  

The Cashmans collaborated with Hart on several other songs on City of God, including the gentle acoustic anthem, "Harvest," the contemporary hymn, "The Glory and the Grace," and the up-tempo praise song, "Let Everything Praise." 

Jonathan and Britney Cashman co-wrote the bouncy, can't-get-it-out-of-your-head pop tune, "All Things New," with Grammy nominated songwriter Ian Eskelin (Jeremy Camp's "I Will Follow" and Francesca Battistelli's "My Paper Heart"). "It is another picture of the Gospel," Britney Cashman explains. "Jesus makes all things new. It sounds like a simple concept, but when you think about what it really means, being made new is a pretty incredible thing." City of God also features a spunky dance remix of "All Things New" that will compel listeners to get up on their feet.   

Britney takes over lead vocals on the driving rock anthem, "Your Love," co-written by Britney, Jonathan and Brian White, and on the heartfelt piano ballad, "Surrender." 

"Britney wrote 'Surrender' quite a while ago, and it has touched more people than I can count," says Jonathan. "It has become somewhat of an 'ender' song for us. We frequently end concerts with this song because it is so powerful in reaching people's hearts." 

"The whole concept of identity is hugely important," Jonathan says of the acoustic guitar-driven "Children of God." "When you know who you are in Christ, when you know you are not just some mistake but that you are actually a child of God, it changes everything. Not only do you know who you are, you know what you are to do. You were created for a purpose. That's really the story behind 'Children of God.' It's a gospel-centric tune based around the first chapter of the Gospel of John." 

"Reaching" is an upbeat, stompy-pop tune that encourages listeners to use one hand to reach out to God and the other to reach out to hurting hearts.   

Britney wrote "Home" unexpectedly and late in the game, when the recording process was nearly complete. Consequently, the song almost didn't make it onto the album. "Home" was birthed during a time of major changes for The Cashmans when they felt called to sell their home and move back to Nashville to further their ministry. Growing up with the challenges of a broken home, Britney says moving often represented a sense of insecurity and a lack of stability in her life. "I was reminded by our heavenly Father that in the shelter of His presence we are home," Britney says. "It was a special moment for me personally as I wrote the song, and it has been really sweet to see how it has impacted and resonated with listeners. I'm really glad the song made the final cut on the CD." 

Sweet strings and acoustic guitars undergird the prayerful, meandering "Carried to the Table," the only cover tune on the album. Written by Leeland Mooring, Marc Byrd, and Steve Hindalong, the song draws on the story of Mephibosheth, the crippled grandson of King Saul, whom King David had carried to his table. "The table of the king covered Mephibosheth's brokenness," Jonathan explains. "It is such a beautiful picture of the Gospel, and how Christ's blood covers our brokenness, that we wanted to include it on this album.   

"I love sharing my story when we do this song live," Jonathan continues. "I can relate a lot with Mephibosheth in the sense that I felt completely unworthy of the King's acceptance when, like him, I was picked up and carried out of my place of brokenness and shame. I came to Christ in my early twenties when Dave, the guitarist in my band at the time, became a Christian and started witnessing to me and our other bandmates. I thought he'd lost it, or gotten himself into a cult or something, because in my home state of Rhode Island, if you're religious but not Catholic, you're probably in a cult," Jonathan jokingly explained. "I was steeped in a heavy party lifestyle at the time, living out the whole sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll thing. I noticed a genuine change for the good in Dave which intrigued me... he was your average Dave one day, then this guy, this compassionate, loving, somewhat annoying guy who kept telling us about the love of Jesus and the gospel. This started us talking and I finally agreed to go to church with him. I reluctantly showed up at his small New England Assemblies of God church one morning, hung over from a long night of partying. During the worship, even though musically I thought it was horrible and my head was pounding, I encountered the presence of God. I felt like Mephibosheth did, like a dead dog in the presence of the King, so I really relate with this message." 

The peace-inflected, piano-driven prayer, "Speak to Me," written by Britney Cashman and Rebekah White, closes the project. "Sometimes we feel like God is silent," Britney says. "Sometimes we feel distant from God, even though He is always speaking through His Word and through His people. When we are in those situations, sometimes we just have to press through in prayer. "Speak to Me" is a song I wrote during a time I personally really needed to hear from God. My hope is that through this song, others are inspired to express their hearts through prayer and to spend time in the presence of God through worship and the reading of His Word. He speaks, but often we just need to do a better job of listening." 

"Our hope for City of God is that people will be introduced or reminded of the power of the gospel and will be encouraged to get engaged, and to take the Great Commission seriously," Jonathan says of the project. "The two pillars of our ministry are discipleship and worship. Britney's heart beats worship, and my strength lies in the discipleship arena, speaking and encouraging the church to get involved in the Great Commission. Worship allows people to experience the presence of God, but then there needs to be a purpose and plan to do something about it. That's where discipleship comes in." 

The couple recalls their encounter with Kevin, a young man who had given his life to Christ just a few days before he reached out to their church's prayer line, where Jonathan was the Worship and Life Groups Pastor. Kevin had felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to confess his infidelities to his wife, and was distraught when she threatened to leave him. 

"I knew this man needed prayer, but he also needed a lot more," Jonathan explains. "I invited him to a small group I had just started, and week by week, month by month, we prayed for him, listened to him, mentored him, discipled him, and became friends with him. It was rough going for a while. As you can imagine, Kevin's wife was skeptical. But I began to see a change in Kevin as he grew in his relationship with Christ, and eventually his wife saw a change in him, too. After about a year, she believed that the Lord had done a genuine work in Kevin, recommitted to the relationship, and committed her life to Christ, as well. That's just one example of what we've seen the Lord do through discipleship." 


In addition to The Cashmans' music ministry, they are also published authors. Jonathan wrote the devotional book, 40 Days with the SAVIOR with co-author, theologian Andrew Sargent, PhD. Both Jonathan and Britney collaborated with Sargent on their latest book, GO!: Making 21st Century Disciple Makers. 

While The Cashmans have toured approximately 150 days per year for a number of years, City of God represents their debut national release and gives long-time fans, as well as those who are just now discovering their music, a reason to rejoice.   

"This is somewhat of a debut for us on the national stage," says Jonathan. "We are excited to get the music and message out there, and we hope people who hear us will experience Christ through the music."

Cashman Ministries Newsletter: 2016 Year in Review  

Hello Friends & Ministry Partners, 

Hard to believe that it’s been another year, making 3 years now we’ve been in full time road ministry – what an adventure it’s been! We're incredibly thankful for the Lord's blessing on our ministry and the lives touched through the message that He's placed on our hearts and His awesome presence during times of worship and prayer - to God be the glory! He is faithful to complete the work that He’s started. 

Specifically, here are some of the victories we're thankful for and would love to celebrate with you from 2016: 

· We wrote and recorded a brand new 12 song CD project entitled “City of God” which we had the honor of working with producers Ian Eskelin & Barry Weeks and a team of very talented musicians and co-writers in Nashville. It was “soft-released” in October for our 3 month music and ministry tour in New England (where we sold out!) but will be officially released world-wide this year in 2017. Please keep this project and the partnerships we’re considering to help distribute and market it in prayer. 

· After a year of careful study, hard work, and prayerful insight, we wrote (with the help of our good friend Dr. Andrew Sargent) our second book: “GO! Making 21st Century Disciple Makers”. We’re excited to announce we’ll be partnering with the Assemblies of God who will be publishing the book and releasing it this year through their “My Healthy Church” distribution channels in churches worldwide! We’ve already been encouraged by the good reports of how it’s helped inspire and better equip people to make “disciple-making disciples” of Christ within communities along our travels, and we pray that the Lord will continue to use this book to build up the Body of Christ and challenge us all to better fulfill the Great Commission within our own lives. 

· We had the joy and privilege of sharing the gospel and our personal testimonies in the Bahamas with thousands of students in 3 different public schools (ages ranging from 6 – 15 yrs old) on the islands of Grand Bahamas (Freeport) and Nassau. We also led the students, teachers, and faculty in worship and prayer, and were blown away by the overwhelming reception of the gospel by both the kids and the government school authorities. Our visits to the schools made the Bahamas local news where we were then interviewed by reporters and given a platform to share about Jesus on prime time Bahamas news channels! You can see some of this interview and some clips of the school assemblies on our FB page and YouTube channel “The Cashmans”. 

· We began developing our next musical and devotional series on the birth of Christ “EMMANUEL”. This will be a follow up to “SAVIOR” and (like “SAVIOR”) will also include a CD, devotional book, small group curriculum, and a musical component that will allow for live touring and church worship team use. We were thrilled to minister through it, along with a wonderfully talented string trio (cello, violin, viola) and band, during a small concert series we booked in New England this past Christmas season. We’re looking forward to future touring with “EMMANUEL” and completing the music and devotional project in the near future! 

· In 2016, we had approximately 150 dates and shared our music and ministry across 9 U.S. states, 7 islands, 5 schools, and 2 countries where we've had the joy of seeing God's hand at work as prodigal sons and daughters return home, and Christians are challenged in their personal faith to make disciples! We've also had the blessing and honor of meeting and making relationships with amazing pastors and ministry leaders in varying cultures and denominations along our travels. 

· We (including Roadie :-) have been protected and kept safe through various challenges including, at times, unexpected RV/ car issues and severe weather. We've also been financially stable and growing despite expenses occurred to keep our ministry supported and going forward. 

***** BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!! ***** 

Please keep us in prayer as we are getting ready to embark upon a new adventure this year. We’re preparing now for a big move back to Nashville, TN in April (next month)! We’ve loved the past 6 years in Florida, and all of the friendships made along the way. We’ll miss it here, but after over a year of deep consideration, prayer, and counsel, we’ve come to the realization that a move back to Nashville is the right thing for us and our ministry at this time. Exciting opportunities are being extended to us there as well as partnerships that will be a great benefit to the work we’re doing. Please stay connected with us through social media, and we’ll promise to do our best to keep you updated! 

THANK YOU to all of you who have encouraged, supported, and prayed for us and our ministry. THANK YOU to all of the churches, venues, pastors, and ministry leaders that have invited us this past year and many of which have also re-invited us for next - we've been so blessed to have met you and shared our music and ministry with you and your communities. Most importantly, THANK YOU LORD for Your amazing grace, love and faithfulness. We are imperfect people who serve a perfect & holy God who is able to use our brokenness and surrendered lives for beautiful purposes. 

We leave you with this passage from Ephesians 3:20-21: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” God bless you and your family in this new year ahead! 

With Love & Gratitude, 

Jonathan & Britney Cashman

Year in Review: THANKFUL! 

Cashmans Ministry Update: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

As we reflect on this past year, we are nothing short of amazed by God's faithfulness, provision and guidance. When we stepped out into full time travel ministry just over a year ago, we'd be lying if we said that even amidst our hard work and preparation, we weren't nervous and even a little scared at times. Would our ministry be well received and effective? Would we be able to stay booked enough to support ourselves on the road? On and on and on. We humbly admit all of that because we want to give God the glory that despite our fears and doubts at times, He was and continues to show Himself faithful to us that "He who began a good work is faithful to complete it". 

This past year has been quite the adventure, and it's stretched and built our faith more so than we could've ever imagined. We're so incredibly thankful for the Lord's blessing on our ministry this past year and the lives touched through the word that He's placed heavy on our hearts (specifically about discipleship and the great commission) and His glorious presence to touch, heal, and save week after week during times of worship and prayer - to God be the glory! 

Specifically, here are just some of the victories we're THANKFUL for and celebrating from this past year: 

- Our musical SAVIOR was translated into Spanish, performed for over 7,000 people at Iglesia El Calvario​ in Orlando, FL on Easter Sunday, and we all were completely blown away as we witnessed over 400 people flood the alters to receive Christ! SAVIOR the Musical CD was also translated and recorded in Spanish, again with the gracious help of Iglesia El Calvario!

- Jonathan​, along with the help of Dr. Andrew Sargent​, after 3 years of vigilant writing, editing and field testing, completed the 40 chapter devotional book that accompanies SAVIOR the Musical, entitled "40 Days with the SAVIOR". This book was also translated into Spanish this year. To date, we've personally sold over 1000 of these books directly and have seen them utilized within churches as small group curriculum and for personal study and spiritual growth.

- We recorded a new EP featuring some original songs of ours with the help of some incredibly talented musicians and producers including Brendan Harkin​ from Wildwood Studios in Franklin, TN and we're looking forward to further developing this project into a full length CD with the extremely accomplished writer and producer Barry Weeks​ this coming year!

- Our ministry was featured on TV and radio broadcasts throughout Latin America sharing the gospel and talking about SAVIOR the Musical and devotional book.

- Jonathan and Dr. Sargent started writing a new book on the Great Commission to be released in 2016.

- In 13 months of full time road ministry, we've had over 100 dates and shared our music and ministry in 16 different states. We've had the blessing and honor of meeting countless people who've impacted our lives for the better and we've made some amazing friendships along the way. We've also seen every week God's hand at work as prodigals return home and people are challenged to make disciples.

- We (along with our dog Roadie) have been protected and kept safe through RV failures on the road, hail storms, intense heat waves, and tornadoes. We've also been financially stable and growing despite expenses occurred to keep our ministry supported and going forward.

It's been challenging and hard at times, but over all, incredibly fulfilling. Ever since we got married over 9 years ago, this has been something we've always wanted and felt called to do together. It's hard to believe sometimes that we're actually doing it and living it now! We hope that all of this is encouragement for someone out there that if the Lord has truly called you to something, no matter how crazy and impossible it may seem at times, that partnered with your hard work and determination He is faithful to bring it to pass.

The map below is a glance at the places we've ministered at this past year (RED PINS), including a few upcoming soon, and also including some national parks and poignant places visited along the way (places we've always dreamed of going to that we were able to finally see this year!) 

THANK YOU to all of you who have encouraged, supported, and prayed for us and our ministry this past year. THANK YOU to all of the churches, venues, pastors, and ministry leaders that have invited us this past year and many of which have also re-invited us for next - we've been so blessed to have met you and shared our music and ministry with you and your communities. Most importantly, THANK YOU LORD for Your amazing grace, love and faithfulness. We are imperfect people who serve a perfect and holy God who is able to use our brokenness and willingness to serve for beautiful purposes. 

We leave you with this timely passage from Colossians 3:15-17: 

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."

Ministry Tour Update & New EP Recorded! 

Greetings from Blizzard Juno! Being from New England, we were hoping for a little scenic snow while we were up here. Well, we're currently 3 feet deep (and counting) in New England's Great Blizzard of 2015 - be careful what you wish for! Since we're snowed in, what better to do than to catch up with you on this blog! It's been a while since our last blog update and so much has happened, which will make it difficult to recap but I'll certainly try my best! In December, we finished out our nearly 3 month ministry tour in New England successfully and witnessed God's faithfulness time and time again! We travelled to various churches and venues across Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut leading worship, sharing original music and teaching/ preaching from the "40 Days with the SAVIOR" devotional, primarily about Christ's commission to make disciples. We were able to share the gospel, pray with many people, and encourage and better equip congregations across New England to make disciple-making disciples within their communities. All in all, it was a truly amazing and faith-building trip. 

On the way down south, we stopped in Pennsylvania and Tennessee where we continued our ministry at other churches and also recorded a new EP in Nashville, TN at Wildwood Studios! We were privileged to work with producer Brendan Harkin as well as top notch studios musicians who also recorded on Britney's worship CD as well as SAVIOR. We were also honored to work with violinist and master string arranger David Davidson who's worked with artists such as Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, The Civil Wars, Carrie Underwood, Kari Jobe, Casting Crowns and many more. By the end of the week, we completed our debut acoustic/ folk inspired EP with songs "Dead Man Walking", "Away", "In the Light", "Lesson to be Learned", and "Take Me Back". We plan on completing the full length CD in 2015, but this gave us a head start in making some of these songs available. The new 5 song EP was soft released just a few weeks ago and is now available for purchase on our website! 

After Tennessee, we made our way back down to Florida where we touched base at home and have since been traveling out and ministering primarily on the weekends. Also when we got home, we took care of some RV maintenance and repair from the bumps and bruises it weathered during our trip up north. (Who builds low bridges in front of campground entrances anyway??!! Oh the stories we have to tell... :)) On a rather sad note, we had a great personal loss on New Year's Eve. After a 5 year battle with cancer, Jonathan's mom went home to be with the Lord. We were there with her through the holidays as well as the night she passed away. She was a truly wonderful woman and an inspiration to all who knew her. We love and miss her greatly, and we're thankful for all the time we've been able to have with her these past five years. This brings us to New England now, where we flew up a week ago for her memorial service in Rhode Island. 

Well everyone, that's a brief recap of all of the major news within the last few months of our ministry. For more information and to see where we'll be ministering in the weeks and months coming, please see our "TOUR" page. Thank you again for all of your prayers and support. There's been no doubt that the Lord has been with us and we are so thankful for all the doors He's been opening! Be encouraged to "go into all the world and make disciples..." - we love you!

3 Weeks In - Going Strong! 

Hello everyone! We're about 3 weeks into our New England tour and we've been seeing God do some great things in our midst. We've been traveling around to various churches of different denominations and other venues sharing our music and testimonies, leading in worship and also often times giving a message about the Great Commission and the importance of discipleship. We've met some incredible people so far and have had the opportunity to pray with many and get a feel for the current spiritual climate of New England. Already, we've seen God do a great work!

We spent a few "off" days visiting some absolutely beautiful locations in Cape Cod and Maine! The scenery up here (especially this time of year) is just gorgeous. The RV is running strong (although we have had our adventures to say the least... ask us later about "the Cranberry Bog" story.. :)) and Roadie has been adjusting to life on the road! He's quite the little adventurer ;) On another note, we do have a pressing prayer request for our car we towed up here to travel locally with - the car overheated and blew a head gasket... we've been calling on some mechanics the last couple days and making arrangements, and praying it's fixed quickly and as inexpensively as possible. 

Otherwise, all is well and we're looking forward to this week ahead! We'll be at Hope Community Church in Putnam, CT and Pembroke Coffee House in Pembroke, MA this weekend and Crossover in Providence, RI and Sacred Exchange in Warwick, RI the following week. We will also be doing a benefit concert at The Upper Room Coffee House next Sunday night (Nov. 2nd) in West Warwick, RI. Tickets are $15 and all proceeds go to providing Thanksgiving dinner for underprivileged families in Rhode Island. 2 tickets feed a family of 4. If you're in the area, we hope to see you there!

Lastly, even now as I write this, Jonathan and his writing partner Dr. Andrew Sargent are working vigorously on completing the revised and 2nd edition to "40 Days with the SAVIOR" devotional and hope to be sending it out for final editing and publishing this week! Please keep them in prayer and be looking for updates on the new book!

Well, I think that's about all for now. It's been a busy last few weeks and I'll try to be better about updating this blog! Also, check out our Facebook pages for pictures and updates - (I'm much better about updating those :)). Thank you all for your prayers and support - we love you!

- Britney Cashman

Moving Forward! 

Hello everyone, welcome to our site! We are excited to be launching out on a New England tour, starting in Mystic, Connecticut, October 5th, 2014! We will be ministering at churches and other venues throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island all of October and November. We will be leading worship, sharing our original songs and speaking at services, concerts and nights of worship. Come out and join us if you can!
