"Awakening" EP
Awakening "No Other Name" LP



Based out of Rhode Island, Awakening has been serving together in the worship of their local church since 2007. After all realizing a common interest and calling to worship, the band began writing together in 2009. Although originally all from different backgrounds and places, God has brought Awakening together under one purpose and calling: to bring a fresh and alive worship to New England as well as the world. The band starting the recording process in 2010 and after years of writing, recording, and polishing, they recently released their first full-length album "No Other Name" on April 24, 2012. The CD was self-funded by the band and their church New Life Worship Center.

Awakening loves serving the local church and leading worship every week in both adult and student services. The band is heavily involved in New Life Worship Center's annual "Awakening Conference", at which they have played in front of over 2,00 people and were streamed on GodTV and live to over 4,000 people over the internet. They all have a heart for bringing people into the presence of God and expressing themselves in worship. Their sound is unique and new, but instantly identifiable and easy to catch on to. With musical influences like U2, Mumford and Sons, Coldplay, Mutemath, and The Killers; but worship influences like Elevation Worship, Israel Houghton, Hillsong United and Ascend the Hill, their worship is completely unique and expressive while also engaging and interactive. An important aspect of worship for all of them is to have fun and actually enjoy and love the presence of God. While they all enjoy playing music, they are sure to keep God at the center of everything they produce. They are not focused on being the main focal point of any song set, but rather they want to turn peoples eyes towards Jesus and His presence during worship.
