Origins {plus a big giveaway}

Hey YOU!  Yes, you!  I have an exciting announcement to make and a giveaway you do not want to miss…

The long-awaited album ORIGINS is finally here!!!

Congrats to John Tibbs and band on the release of their very first full-length album!!!  It is now available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, or through  I may have got ahold of an early copy (maybe because my boyfriend is the drummer?) and may have been playing it non-stop in my car for the last month.  Okay, yes, I have the whole thing memorized.  But I’ll have you know that I bought it on iTunes too because I support the band for all their hard work that they put into this album.  They did an amazing job (biased or not)!

Last week they ended one day at #40 on the top selling Christian albums on iTunes; right up with the “big name” artists like Chris Tomlin and Hillsong United.  How awesome is that?

God has some big plans in store for these guys, I just know it!  And the plans are big because it is all for HIM! God is using John Tibbs and his talents as a means of drawing others closer to Him.  The whole band agrees that this music is to make Jesus famous, and not themselves!  It is just so exciting and I’m not even in the band.  I can’t wait for more people to hear it so I can only imagine how they feel!

If you want one of the songs for FREE (and why wouldn’t you?), check out this blog post to see how easily it’s done.  Fair warning though, after you get that song you’ll want the whole CD.  I’m not just saying that either, and nope, I do not get paid for this.  I simply just want to share this with you because it’s music you want to hear.  Also, if you want to listen to all of the songs and not just a short preview before buying them, just go to John’s blog where you can hear the full versions.

Meet the band…(from top to bottom) John Tibbs, Todd Liles, Myles Heck, and Ryan Ray. Do they not have the coolest names or what?

And now for the big giveaway….

Because I personally think everyone and their brother should hear this CD, I am asking you to share it with your friends, family, internet friends, etc… and in return, I will offer some pretty cool incentives.

I have three $10 iTunes gift cards, a John Tibbs Music t-shirt, a physical copy of the John Tibbs album, and get this…. a brand new IPOD SHUFFLE to give away!!! Add that up and it means there will be six winners in all, chosen at random.

There will be several ways to enter since there are various ways you can get the word out.  Choose one or choose all.  Don’t let it overwhelm you, any small way you can help is awesome!  And gives you a chance to win, too.

  1. Mindy! Thanks so much for the comments on my blog. It is really encouraging to know that other people understand and that we can go through tough times together. I am excited about this music. I love the cover art and listened to the acustic version on John Tibbs website, it was really good. I hope they have lots of success. I am thankful that we are able to connect through our blogs and I am looking forward to getting to know you better.

  2. You go, Mindy girl!!! Right on sister! How fabulous of you… I will be posting soon, all of this too. I've been lagging since I was gone to Valparaiso/Chicago/Great time!!!!!

    Mindy, if this band becomes super popular and tours the world, will you become a groupie? Or a roadie?

  5. I add John Tibbs as my Facebook friend (awaiting his approval)! Can you believe I've made it to 2010 and I don't have an ipod? I think it would be quite swell to catch up with this crazy 'new' technology :)

  12. I don't twitter, so I couldn't get the free download…but I have now listened to the song on John's page at least 3 times. It's great!

  13. I called our local Christian radio station WLJN and I requested some John Tibbs! They were happy to play it!

  15. I added John Tibbs as a friend on facebook.
    You should really tell him to make a fan page for the band rather than just a personal page. In the long run they will be able to get more fans. There's a friend limit on a normal facebook page but on a fan/like page there's no limit.

  16. I'm really sorry that I missed this giveaway! But I love your blog and will definitely be back!
