Some of the best Christian artists aren’t as popular as they should be. The artists on this list are definitely on par with mainstream Christian artists and in my opinion, better. For me, it’s pretty difficult to find good “Christian Music” and my short list below reflects that. Each of the artists I’ve chosen are incredibly talented; you’re bound to love them. So here are the best lesser-known Christian bands.

1. Citizens and Saints

This band originated from Mars Hill Church but has since branched off and is now working with another music label. There sound is hard to describe, but they certainly sound great.
Here’s a new song from Citizens and Saints, but I encourage you to listen to some of their older songs because they’re great as well:

2. Kings Kaleidoscope

Kings Kaleidoscope is another excellent Christian band. My favorite songs of theirs are the hymns that they remake and breathe a beautiful new life into.

3. Gungor

This band comes really close to not being on this list because they are more popular than the others on this list. Still, there not overly popular.

4. All Sons & Daughters

This is another semi-popular band and may not really belong in this list, but they are definitely less popular than Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, and Phil Wickham.

5. John Mark McMillan

McMillan has a very unique sound and you’ll probably either love or hate his sound. I happen to love it.


There are many more great artists that could go on this list, and that’s why I decided to publish a sequel article titled The Best Lesser Known Christian Bands (revisited). If this list made you want more bands to listen to, check out my second article.
