Surface Deep is a band consisting of dedicated Christian musicians whom all enjoy Music Ministry. Mark David Goins, front man, and Alumni of Greenville College 07ï¿½ decided to assemble the band this year. The band is not only passionate about music, but all are committed to reaching people with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ by ministering and performing songs that relate to the various struggles that often surface within the Body of Christ. To say the least, Mark David, indeed displays a true heart for worship and enjoys leading the praise team at his Fatherï¿½s church in Alton, IL.
The Surface Deep Band members represent various church denominations including Baptist, Non-Denomination, Apostolic, and Pentecostal faiths. Nevertheless, all members grew up in predominantly African American churches having experienced a variety of soulful gospel music. With this said, Surface Deep has stepped ï¿½out of the boxï¿½ and branched out into different styles of music that include Acoustic, CCM, Reggae, Rock, and Jazz. Mark David quoted, ï¿½Our music is designed to reach people of all different races and backgrounds.ï¿½ In addition, Surface Deepï¿½s mission is to sing Godï¿½s praises, while allowing their contemporary sound to bridge the gap between the traditions of soulful gospel music and Contemporary Christian Music.
The band consists of six members. Mark David: vocals, guitar; Mike: bass guitar; Victor: lead guitar; Jimmy: drums;Elton & Jordan: Keyboards.
