Maverick City Music is both a record label and a diverse, contemporary worship music collective. Looking to bridge the gap between CCM and contemporary gospel, the group released a pair of EPs in 2019, followed by their two-part full-length debut, Maverick City, Vol. 3, in 2020. A Spanish-language album, Como en el Cielo, arrived in 2021 followed by a chart-topping collaboration with Elevation Worship, 2021′s Old Church Basement. They have also collaborated on projects with Tribl, Upperroom, and Kirk Franklin.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, and co-founded in 2018 by Tony Brown and Jonathan Jay, Maverick City Music earned a pair of Dove Award nominations for Maverick City, Vol. 3, which featured the hit singles “Promises” and “Man of Your Word.” Move Your Heart, a collaborative EP with Upperoom, arrived later that year. In 2021, the group released their first Spanish-language LP, Como en el Cielo, followed by another collaboration, Old Church Basement, this time with popular North Carolina collective Elevation Worship. The latter album hit number one on the Top Christian Albums chart. Two live albums arrived in 2021 with Jubilee: Juneteenth Edition and Tribl I, a collaboration with fellow Georgia worship collective Tribl. The group’s first holiday-themed record, A Very Maverick Christmas, appeared in November 2021 and reached number nine on the Top Christian Albums chart. 2022 saw the group team up with gospel superstar Kirk Franklin on the collaborative live effort Kingdom: Book One. ~ James Christopher Monger
