Few artists have been more influential in defining contemporary Christian rock ‘n’ roll than DeGarmo & Key, and few musicians helped define the classic, live DeGarmo & Key sound like guitarist/singer/songwriter, Mark Pogue. Mark’s phenomenal prowess on the guitar kept him in high demand with such classic Christian rock artists as Rick Cua, Morgan Cryar, and Margaret Becker, he was equally comfortable as frontman for Mark Pogue & Fortress, landing 5 Top Ten radio hits with the band’s debut project, Restoration.
Mark dropped out of the limelight after that project, feeling the Lord calling him to press into his home life, and concentrate on his family. He has remained faithful to the call of being a husband, father and diligent worker, but while he walked away from the media spotlight, Mark never abandoned music or the ministry, serving on the worship team with his local church, writing songs, and singing and playing guitar as well as providing vocal arrangements for some top Christian hits and performing live with artists like Paul Q-Pek, Neal Morse, Dony McGuire & Reba Rambo, and Israel Houghton. It’s been a quarter-century since the release of Restoration, so fans will likely jump out of their skins when they hear that Mark Pogue has felt the release from the Lord to go back into the studio to record a brand new album, appropriately titled, Through the Fire.
This album goes to "11" with hard hitting jams such as Love Will Find You, Feel Alright, New Dates & Heartaches, & Man After God's Heart. It even includes a bonus track of the "Original" version of Money Can't Buy, a song from the first album. This version captured the attention of major labels as well as program directors nationwide! However, the album also offers more introspective moments such as Through The Fire, Rescued Me, Heaven's Eyes & Love Like You Mean It, giving listeners a glimpse of the soul's reaction to the fiery trials of life. Finally, the album winds down with a worship song; (Baptize Me), and a invitation; (Come Go With Me), that calls the listener to trust the ways of God as He brings them into the purpose and fulfillment of their lives. Experience the musical journey of faith, hope & love as you go- Through the Fire.
