"We want to bring the world something real with a servanthood mentality.
If you approach the world with the apron of a servant, you are allowed to go places that you can't go with the crown of a king. Authors is that apron for us. It's the bridge that gets us to possitions and opportunities to serve and make a differnce in as many lives as possible in a unique and radical way."
Authors is a touring indie/rock/pop band from Dallas, Texas. Recently taking first place in the 2009 National Fine Arts Competition, held in Orlando Florida, with over 15,000 participants. When you hear Authors, you will listen to mathematical phrases, clever riffs, and structure that will impress the likes of anyone, in addition to the tastefully mastered vocal arrangements, and skillful drum forward songs; which in turn produce a sound all can move their body to. Not only does this business minded collection of musicians have emotion provoking lyrics and sound, they possess a marketable image, suitable for the "up-and-coming". Authors has recently recorded 5 beautiful tracks on an E.P. entitled "&" in hopes to capture the creative tunes and intense energy of their live performance.

reputable, raw talent musical entity that is ready to share their passion with the masses.
Rather than exploit the art of music, Authors are strong believers in the idea of sharing
their music with anyone who will listen. Within the first year of their existence, Authors has
already gained national attention and recognition in a multi-market demographic. In August of
2009 Authors competed in the National Fine Arts competition, held in Orlando Florida, with
over 15,000 participants Authors took first place. Immediately after this brief success,
Authors found favor among nationwide managers and management firms. The group, as a whole,
understands the concept of selling a product and their product is selling. The group has been
offered tours with artist such as Poema (tooth and nail records), Bradley Hathaway, and John
Rueben, although this is a great start, Authors will soon embark on a tour that will be a
career making opportunity. Understanding that its business first, music second has propelled
the band to grasp the importance of being successful. Their definition of success is not
measure monetarily but rather by their stability. Their primary focus is to ensure the
security of all parties; sponsors, promoters, fellow musicians and club owners. Ultimately
Authors is eagerly seeking new opportunities, both professionally and independently, their
hopes are to move their listeners and make an impression in an oversaturated market.
