Chris and Conrad are an American contemporary Christian music duo from Lakeland, Florida, consisting of Chris Kuti and Conrad Johnson. In early 2009 the duo was named the “#2 Artist You Oughta Know” by CCM Magazine. “Lead Me to the Cross”, a radio version of the worship song written by Brooke Fraser, was released in early 2009 as the their first single. In August 2009, it reached #3 on Billboard magazine’s top Christian Songs chart. “Lead Me to the Cross” was also their first #1 song on the Christian Radio Weekly Inspirational Chart on May 18, 2009 as well as the #1 song on the Billboard Soft AC/Inspirational Chart from July 20 to August 10, 2009.
The duo’s self-titled debut album, Chris and Conrad, was released May 5, 2009 and was co-produced by Kuti, Johnson, and David Garcia. It features a 30-minute documentary on the making of the project including video of the songwriting sessions for the album. The second single from the debut project, “You’re the One” is scheduled for release in late 2009 and will be preceded by a short-form video directed by Jon Ward (tobyMac, Third Day, Newsboys) of Jonny Grand Films and Media.
