Preacher and the Bluesman
With a sound that is distinctly their own and lyrics that are bold and brave, Bible Belt Blues has dared to tread where many other Christian songwriters have dared not tread: to address sin, repentance, and salvation in their songs. Paula and Harold Vega Vondenstein view themselves as Evangelist Songwriters-ready to evangelize the world one song at a time.
Runs Like a River
After witnessing her husband Harold Vega Vondenstein’s guitar playing skills blossom, his wife, Paula knew that she needed to create a new platform where Harold could explore his full range of creativity as a guitarist. She gave him a new name, Harold “Grit” Vondenstein, and Grit’s Guitar was officially birthed in May of 2021.
my god, my god
Destined to become a game changer in the field of Christian music, Bible Belt Blues’ second album, “My God, My God,” is attempting to do the near impossible: to craft an album that could literally change the direction of Christian music as we know it today: to shift the focus of Christian music as entertainment to Christian music as an evangelical tool to win lost souls for Christ.
i'm not ashamed to be a christian
Bible Belt Blues’ debut album, “I’m Not Ashamed to Be a Christian” is both fresh and original with its musical roots distinctly early Mississippi Bentonia blues and lyrics that are bold and biblically sound. Their gritty guitar-picking, hauntingly beautiful D & E minor chords, and “weeping harmonica” are the perfect backdrop for their full-fledged repentance and church revival songs for which they have become known.
