Karl Kohlhase was born and raised in a small town in Northern Minnesota called Virginia, which is about 200 miles north of Minneapolis (and, yes, it gets cold up here). His family and he now live in a neighboring town called Mountain Iron. The region is known as the Iron Range because its primary industry is iron ore mining.
His music was heavily influenced by James Taylor, Michael Card, John Michael Talbot, Edvard Greig, Eddie Van Halen, Michael W. Smith, J.S. Bach, Jim Croce.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this webpage! Thanks for stopping here, and we hope you find something to read and listen to that will encourage you in your Christian walk while you're here. And may God's glory be seen in everything that is done.
Karl Kohlhase first contemporary Christian music CD was released on this website in 2000, and it is still available. It's not that this had a record contract or anything like that, but Karl did have these songs, and he knew that if the Lord had given them to me, He would want me to yield the greatest amount of fruit I possibly could with them.
As a result, he decided to post them on the internet, completely free of charge, to see if He could utilize them in people's lives. Fortunately, the feedback was positive enough to motivate me to continue my journey. Several years have passed, and here he is.
Free CDs are accessible on this website, and the songs are being downloaded in nations all over the world. These include countries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Singapore, Lithuania, and Africa! He is astounded at the kindness of our God, that He would allow a broken little guy like him to be a part of the dissemination of His salvation message. He can't express how glad I am for Christ's healing wounds.
Salutations from the Lord!
A message from Karl Kohlhase
Keep in mind that while "contemporary Christian music" is the closest descriptor he can come up with for his music, it is most likely not the same as what most people think of when they hear the phrase "contemporary Christian musicians."
It's a little like John Michael Talbot getting together with James Taylor, or Michael Card getting together with Jim Croce. There are traces of folk music, acoustic alternative pop-rock music, and classical music throughout the piece. While he supposes it's simply Karl music, he'll stay with the term "modern Christian music" for the time being because no one knows what that sounds like. Enjoy!
