A Christian pop husband-and-wife duo out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Love & The Outcome is comprised of singer/songwriter Jodi King and bassist Chris Rademaker. Jodi was a solo artist at the start of her career, having released a debut album, Little Smile, in 2010, when Chris began sitting in on guitar at some of her gigs, although his main focus remained his own band, the Attics.
When the Attics folded, Jodi and Chris came together (both personally and creatively), and the duo of Love & The Outcome officially came into being in 2012. Signing to Word Records in 2013, the duo released their debut self-titled album that same year. The album launched Love & The Outcome as a mainstay act at Christian radio and on the touring circuit.
Their long-awaited sophomore album on Word Records, These Are The Days, followed in September 2016. While their first project was created out of personal hardships, These Are The Days takes the duo into a more restful, yet celebratory, season.
“The first record was created out of…a lot of pain,” Jodi shares. “You didn’t feel the joy as much, you felt the struggle -- and that’s okay. This [new] record is a celebration season, and we have to really let the music sound like that. These are moments to celebrate and let the smile show a little more.”
Beginning the album in California and wrapping in Nashville, These Are The Days was produced by Colin Munroe and Grammy Award winner Seth Mosley. The powerhouse producers easily blend the new songs with a variety of influences that inspire both Chris and Jodi, from 80’s U2 and The Police to Coldplay, Bleachers, and Tame Impala, while lyrically taking the songs to a unique mix of worship, praise celebration, and declaration.
A wonderful duo with enormous potential – with a not hidden message| Posted December 21, 2013
I've just listened for a short while, but I really like the sound and the creativity they have put down to the songs.
Even though the songs sound good to me it's not what I like the most, it's the lyrics and the message inspired from their own journey. This makes the songs so inspiring and outstanding.
I'm excited for the future!
