Take a Euro pop basis, add in an element of the 80’s electronic synthesizer movement plus the ambient sounds of sweeping analog delays, controlled feedback and other “experimental” sounds completed by reflective and positive lyrics, you get beforesunday.

Biography

This musical endeavor, created from the chance reunion of two high-schoolmates, Kourtney Roop (lead vocals) and Rich Gable (keyboards). With the addition of an even more chance reunion of three college schoolmates, Brian Russell (guitars), Chris Kizzia (bass) and Kevin Blankenship (drums). Beforesunday has been together for two short years, though the musical backgrounds of each of the members span over ten years.
The Tulsa, Oklahoma based five piece has a list of influences that could span across several pages, but some of the most influential and obvious include U2, Radiohead, Muse, Mute Math, The Cars, The Killers, Coldplay, The Bravery and Keane. The fusion of these influences along with the combined country, jazz and drum corps training of the beforesunday members create a musical force to reckon with. They pride themselves on both the ability to put together a great-recorded product (with the new release of the four song “Excavation [EP]”) and the ability to create a live experience that will leave people speechless and uplifted. The focus and content of beforesunday’s lyrics are created from intimate conversations between the writers and their Savior, Jesus Christ. However, just because all the members of beforesunday are Christians, does not mean that their music is full of heavy-handed and legalistic religious views.

Find beforesunday in one of the many places they will be this year as their fan-base increases and the word about this groundbreaking band spreads.
