APX Alumnus' Daughter Writes for CCM
Fri., Mar. 2. 2007 7:36pm EST
ApologetiX alumnus drummer Keith Harrold is one proud papa. His daughter, Rachel, started working at CCM Magazine last year, and this month she had her first music review printed. What's more, CCM plans to publish another of Rachel's reviews in next month's issue. We've known Rachel since she was in grade school, so we're proud, too.
For three decades now, CCM Magazine has been recognized as the premier publication dealing with contemporary Christian music. Keith has been a reader of CCM since the early days and owns copies of every issue but the first two. And now his daughter is one CCM's writers. Things have come full circle.
A field sales rep serving 12 states for Word Records, Keith has worked for the company for 23 years and has won the company's National Salesman of the Year six times. He and his wife, Linda, also have two grown sons.
Though his schedule never allowed him to be our full-time drummer, Keith filled in the gaps for us many times from 1993-2000, when our regular drummers couldn't make it to a particular concert or when we were between drummers. He also played drums on our "Isn't Wasn't Ain't" project in 1993 and drummed on three tracks on our "Keep the Change" CD in 2001, "Daniel," "Cheap Birds" and "The Ballad of Jesus & Yahweh."
Congratulations, Rachel and Keith!
