The CCM community is humungous, and while I like my fair share of artists like MercyMe, Casting Crowns, TobyMac, Building 429 and the like, sometimes I like to put on an album of an artist that doesn’t come from America. Not that Americans don’t produce great CCM, quite the opposite. But rather I’ve realised that artists from Canada, Australia and even the U.K. seem to employ a broader sense of style, and music that is somewhat more ingenious and interesting to listen to compared to the endless sea of American CCM that floods the K-Love and Air 1 airwaves. Hopefully these 10 artists I’ve listed below will encourage you all to broaden the musical landscape of whatever Christian music you listen to. So what are my favourite 10 artists within the last few years that are not from America? Read on to find out.

Welcome to our newest blog series Top Tens, which will be posted every Sunday (Australian time, which may be Saturday in other parts of the world…), where I will be sharing my ‘top ten ____’- whether it be favourite songs, artists for a certain time period (which is obviously a personal opinion and isn’t meant to drag artists down), movie trilogies, Australian food, past times in the summer, activities to undertake at the beach, superheroes, the list goes on. I will also give completely subjective reasons (which are not in concrete and could change this time next year) and then I’ll open the forum and discussion to all of you! This series we’ll be delving into a variety of topics and issues (like what I have already listed), so stay tuned for the upcoming weeks.
