Friday, June 3, 2022
RiseFest 2022 just got better with the addition of Cade Thompson and Adam Weber!
Red Street Records artist, Cade Thompson, is an energetic and soulful Contemporary Christian music artist with a sound that appeals to believers and mainstream pop audiences alike. Cade’s effortless style promotes his personal musical influences, which draws heavily from the church. Cade has an admirable ability to transform his thoughts and faith into a powerful collection of melodies and lyrics that inspire people of all ages to step into all that God has for them.
Cade has had an affinity with music since his toddler days when even a preschool teacher noticed him frequently harmonizing early on, and eventually progressed through piano, guitar and drum lessons. After joining the youth worship team in 6th grade, a music mentor came into his life who emphasized the importance of seeking God through the Bible outside of a worship setting. This understanding placed Cade on a deeper course of encountering the love of the Father and seeking His presence more intently. In these early teen years, Cade knew God was calling him into music ministry and giving him opportunities to grow in that calling.
God has continued to reveal Cade’s heart, the outpouring has resulted in a strong connection to his generation sonically and lyrically. Shortly after finishing high school, Cade moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Following his move, Cade signed a record deal with Red Street Records, an independent Christian label founded by Rascal Flatts member, Jay DeMarcus. In February of 2020, Cade made waves across the Christian music community with the release of his debut single, “Provider”. In August of 2020, Cade earned his first Top 20 Billboard charting single, with the release of his second radio single, “Every Step of the Way”. He has also seen huge success online, where his music has earned over thirty million streams to date. Cade hit the ground running in 2021, with a lineup of shows across the nation opening for some of CCM’s biggest names: Crowder, Big Daddy Weave, We The Kingdom, and Micah Tyler. Cade’s debut album, Bigger Story, was released on September 10th , 2021.
Adam Weber is the lead pastor and founder of Embrace. He likes typewriters, drives a Rambler, cheers for the Cincinnati Bengals, and has seven chickens (Yep, seven). He once made worldwide news when a turkey vulture fell out of the sky and landed on his back porch during an ice storm. Google it.
Adam started Embrace in 2006 when he was 24 years old. He wasn't planning on becoming a pastor, but God had a different plan. Adam has been recognized as one of the youngest pastors on the list of fastest-growing churches in the country, speaks at national conferences, has a blog, hosts his own podcast, and wrote the books Talking With God and Love Has a Name.
Adam's married to his beautiful wife, Becky, and has four kids: Hudson, Wilson, Grayson, and Anderson. And yeah, we did mention his chickens before his children.
