A Road Less Traveled

A Road Less Traveled


Our music is encompassed by a fresh alternative rock sound that promotes hope, change, and love in a world that can feel stagnant. Connecting with our audience takes more than a powerful stage performance, but rather is dependant on meeting each person face-to-face before and after each show.


Recently awarded the “Best Independent Band of 2007” in CCM Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards, A Road Less Traveled has created an attention-demanding buzz amongst live music circles across the country. Dubbed a “Famecast Fenom” through a worldwide online video competition called Famecast, they were awarded a notable cash prize through the support of their wide-spread fan base, affectionately referred to as ‘Roadies’.

During the fall of 2007, two tracks off of their debut album “Rescue” achieved national air play without the funding of a record label. This project contains 12 hard-hitting songs that will leave you humming the melody to tunes like the lyrically inquisitive and hope-infusing “Maybe”.

Amongst other highlights such as sitting on the Top 30 spots on ChristianRock.net, and playing on radios everywhere, ARLT has emerged on the scene with an obvious fervor to make their presence and their purpose known in the Christian music industry.

“We just really want to present a message of hope to anyone who will give us an honest listen,” says Shawn Anglin, electric guitarist for the band. “We play for a generation that is just tired and discouraged, and they need to know that they are needed and they can have something positive to contribute to our world”.

Sharing the stage with acts like Family Force 5, Pillar, Tait, Seventh Day Slumber, Superchick, Kutless, Building 429 and Barlow Girl, this band presents a willingness to play anywhere they can. The November 2006 issue of CCM magazine noted, "A steady diet of touring, from churches to festivals to camps and bowling alleys, has solidified these five into one of the best independent outfits on present rock scene." After playing more than 100 shows in 2007 it’s easy to see that 2008 is definitely a year of promise for A Road Less Traveled.



Written By: A Road Less Traveled

You wait for someone just to hold you
Someone just to love you
And tell you that you're somethin
Well, all they ever do is hurt you
So tell me does it hurt you
When you tell yourself you're nothin

Maybe I'll scream, and maybe I'll fight for nothin
What's it to you if I make a fuss
Cause Love didn't come, and Love He didn't die for nothin
So tell me would you just turn your back on Love

You scream, hopin someone will hear you
Well, don't scream, no don't scream, because love is
Right behind you
