Healing

May 29, 2018

Update: Jesus heals! I’m so excited to share that over the last month I have gone to physio numerous times and have been in the swimming pool exercising my arm every other day. Last night I picked up my guitar for the first time since the accident and shared a concert at North Pointe Community Church. God is so good! No pain whatsoever and I have full range of motion of my arm again. Thank you Jesus! Now I am praying that the blood clot does not return after 3 months of blood thinner use. Thank you for joining with me in prayer for this as well.

Thank you for your prayers- Jesus heard and answered! Thank you for continued prayers as the blood thinners run their course and that I don’t get another Blood Clot. #healing #jesus #prayers #thankful


INJURY UPDATE

April 20, 2018

I am very sad to say that I will be off the road for the next 1–2 months. The #Mountain&ValleyTour which was to take me to beautiful #Deutschland this coming week is now rescheduled to 2019 due to an injury.

Last week while body boarding in Hawaii I ended up separating the AC Joint in my right arm. This was not going to stop me – I was still planning to head to head to Germany less a guitar strumming arm and sing. :-) However, earlier this week I had a complication – a 30cm long DVT (deep vein blood clot) from approx. my wrist to armpit (hopefully caused by the accident). Because of this complication I was advised by my doctors it would be best to stay home and heal properly.

Thank you to my amazing friends and the churches in Germany for your understanding during this time. I was so pumped to worship

JON BAUER MOST-NOMINATED ARTIST OF GMA CANADA’S COVENANT AWARDS FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING

September 19, 2013

Nods Include Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Roots/Folk Album of the Year
Singer-Songwriter Wraps Fifth Tour to Germany

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Sept. 30, 2013—Renowned singer-songwriter/worship leader Jon Bauer is once again the most-nominated artist of this year’s Gospel Music Association Canada Covenant Awards, recently announced during a press conference at CTS Television Studios in Burlington, Ontario. Among Bauer’s 2013 nominations are Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and a nod in the category of Roots/Folk Album of the Year for his newest project, Roots of Worship (7/16/13), which he debuted live on a two-week tour to Germany earlier this month.

“I am honoured to have my music recognized by GMA Canada alongside many other gifted artists,” says Bauer. “I am continually humbled to be able to do what I do on an international level—much less be recognized for it—all the while remembering that this life and our purpose is not found in the country we live in, the language we speak, or music we sing….it is when our hearts are connected to Jesus that matters, and in that our roots grow deep.”

A favorite in his native Canada and with audiences across the globe, Bauer led the pack with seven nominations for The 35th Annual Covenant Awards. Besides those previously mentioned, Bauer received recognition for Modern Worship Song of the Year (“Our God”), Children’s Song of the Year (“Come and Save Us”), Recorded Song of the Year (“Fall Over Me”), and Country/Bluegrass Song of the Year (“Blessed Be the Name/Power in the Blood” feat. High Valley).

“Jon Bauer is one of the most talented artists I’ve ever had the privilege to work with,” says Mark Giles, Christian editor at All Access, who has played an instrumental role in Bauer’s career. “His gifting is obvious, but what impresses me the most is his commitment to ministry. For Jon, it’s not about promotion of self, it’s about service to others. He causes others to want to know more about the God that’s chasing after him.”

Leroy Harder, Compassion Canada artist and events manager, agrees, “We are thrilled to see GMA Canada recognize Jon Bauer, one of our most effective, passionate artists with a heart for his music and the ministry of Compassion. His passion for the kingdom is contagious, and it’s exciting to be a part of what Jon is doing!”

In addition to Roots/Folk Album of the Year, nominated songs “Our God” and “Blessed Be the Name/Power in the Blood” are both from Roots of Worship, which released only two months ago and is already being touted as “...imminently honest and approachable…” (soul-audio.com) and “...one of my favorite folk/acoustic-inspired worship albums of the year so far” (indievisionmusic.com).
Produced by GMA Dove Award-winning Producer of the Year Rusty Varenkamp (Building 429, Sanctus Real, Tenth Avenue North), Roots of Worship comprises 10 familiar worship songs, six which currently grace Christian Copyright Licensing International’s (CCLI) Top 25, but with original arrangements sonically reminiscent of artists like Mumford & Sons, Lumineers, and The Civil Wars.
Fans throughout Germany received the album enthusiastically, as Bauer debuted music from Roots of Worship on his fifth German tour, which wrapped Sept. 15. The tour comprised 12 concerts in 10 cities, including Berlin, Dresden, Frankfurt, Munster, and Mainz.

Roots of Worship is available via iTunes, Amazon.com and at www.jonbauermusic.com. Sample a stream of the CD online at http://snd.sc/11IJSle. Also, visit www.jonbauermusic.com for an updated tour itinerary.

Ten16 Entertainment congratulates Jon Bauer on both of these great milestones in his career.

Born, raised, and still based out of the Edmonton Canada, Jon Bauer tours internationally full time. GMA Canada’s 2008 Male Vocalist of the Year, Jon was also the 2007 SHAI Award (Canada’s People’s Choice) recipient for New Artist of the Year. Fuelled by the success of his critically acclaimed releases Life of Worship (2005) and Surround (2008), which have yielded numerous hit singles in Canada, Jon has received a total of 11 GMA Canada Covenant Award nominations in the past five years. Additionally, his 2008 Giver of Grace—Kids Worship Vol.1, was 2009 Covenant Award-winning Children’s Album of the Year.

Bauer’s fifth worship-focused recording, FOREVERMORE,(released May 2011 in Canada and January 2012 in the US) is also his US debut, and he’s excited to share his new music—and his heart—with an ever-growing audience. Produced by one of the industry’s most sought-after producers, this year’s Dove Award-winning producer Rusty Varenkamp (Tenth Avenue North, Meredith Andrews), FOREVERMORE features 10 selections with 8 written or co-penned by Bauer. Bauer’s songwriting has been likened to familiars in the industry like Chris Tomlin or Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall, with great care to craft corporately focused worship moments that encourage the Church. His warm, emotive vocals and memorable melodies put the finishing touches on a collection that’s as equally accessible on a Sunday morning as it is on Monday’s commute. “My heart is to encourage people that worship is more than music. It’s a lifestyle, and it’s a choice,” Bauer explains. “We need to look for ways to serve God and serve others, representing Him to this hurting world.”

TEN16 officially hit the Canadian Christian music scene in 2009 as an independent entertainment promotions company committed to the education and promotion of emerging talent and the creation of tools to help stimulate industry growth. These areas have expanded into three separate branches to meet the needs of the industry and to be able to adapt with the ever-changing music industry.

NEW KIDS CD COMING THIS SEPTEMBER

July 25, 2011

On the heels of Jon’s first Kids Worship CD that was awarded “Children’s Album of the Year” by the Gospel Music Association Canada, Jon is releasing a second Kids Worship CD this coming September. Entitled “Come and Save Us” the new album features 13 tracks with Jon leading in worship with a Kids Choir and Child Soloists joining in throughout the project.

The songs on this new project are to help kids in both horizontal and vertical worship. There are several songs on the CD that are corporate in nature, allowing children of all ages to sing together about who our God is and what He has done for us. However, as Jon prayed through this project it became very clear that some of the songs were also to help children in their personal relationship with God. Jon shares “I know that there are many children in the churches and in the schools that I join with as I go out on tour that don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. They may sing about God but they may not truly Know God.” This newest project is filled with songs, prayers and scriptures that will encourage a child to enter into their own relationship with Jesus – even a prayer to ask Jesus into their hearts to be their Forever Friend. “This is what excites me most about this album. My prayer is that through this album – thousands upon thousands of children give their life to Jesus and make the choice to walk with Jesus each day as their friend.”

Watch for the CD to be available in stores and online in Fall 2011.
