There is something beautiful about two souls connected through music. For Richie Fike (Fike - as dubbed by his friends) & Dana, it was like a hand in a glove - a match made in heaven. The Fikes moved to Colorado Springs, after marrying, to join the ministry of Vanguard Church. It was there that they were inspired to write worship songs for their church, resulting in their first two independent worship CDs, “In & Out of Season” and “The Morning is Come.” Fike & Dana attained national recognition with their 3rd album, Make A Sound, as they were honored to receive “Song of the Year” at GMA in the Rockies 2008 as well as a first round Dove Award Nomination for the Easter Choral program Lillenas Publishing created around their song “Ascend To Heaven.”
Since the release of Make A Sound in early 2009, Fike signed as a writer to Integrity Music Publishing, Fike & Dana were featured in Worship Leader Magazine, WLM’s SongDiscovery Disc, and selected as the top new worship band for 2009. In July of 2010, they released their first CCM AC single produced by Brent Mulligan, “My Savior Lord” with an “out of the box” add at major market AC station WCSG in Grand Rapids, MI and featured on Dallas’ mega-station KLTY, “New Music Café” specialty program. The single came in the first week of its release at #79 on the MediaBase CCM AC Charts! The single was released to digital and mobile stores through Universal Music Christian Group. The full album, produced by Brent Mulligan, is slated for a May 17, 2011 release into Christian bookstores across the USA..
