Amplified Church Pow’s in-your-face rap-syncopated rhymes, catchy autotune hooks, and power-hitting screams smash together to create an explosive crunkcore party-induced sound!
Andrik Powell began writing, recording, and was soon distributing demo CDs as early as 2009. But in 2014, he released his debut full-length album "SunShyn" as the artist Amplified Church Pow. Much of his popularity derived from digital distribution like iTunes, ReverbNation, and SoundCloud. But Amplified Church Pow also added live appearances to the mix including local music store performances, city-sponsored variety shows, and school-sponsored concerts.
Founding Swaggatronikk Records in 2016, the label's roster would increase to include electronic chillwave artist Ancillary Moonlight and the duo Blame the Caffeine! With Swaggatronikk Records, Amplified Church Pow announced two upcoming releases. These include a free-download mixtape "Blackk Diamondz" and then a remix album "SunShyn Reloaded." Both are slated for an early to mid 2016 release. And delving deeper into a hard crunkcore sound, Amplified Church Pow is currently at work on his full-length sophomore album "Reel Rap Freakk Attakk."
Amplified Church Pow identifies himself as an artist who is Christian, rather than a Christian Artist. "I love electronic, hip hop, screamo, metal, and rock. Just because I'm Christian doesn't mean I need to have the same generic 'sound' as mainstream Christian music." Amplified Church Pow wants to encourage people to enjoy life to the fullest. He says, "Everyone goes through hard times and good. I just want to remind people that they are not alone. And that life, like heaven itself, can be a giant bombtastic party of awesomeness!"
