Feeling a bit camera shy


Birmingham, Alabama based Floodgate, which began in 1998, has been ministering to people around the southeast for many years. The music is a mature brand of Rock which rides solidly upon the guitar wizardry of veteran lead guitarist, Taz Turner. Their songs use Biblically based lyrics that inspire and challenge Christians, and share the good news of Jesus Christ to non-Christians, as well. Their songs include driving rock, moving ballads, as well as acoustic praise and worship songs. Floodgate provides quality Christian entertainment that reaches the hearts of all who will hear. Floodgate uses two lead vocalists, Scott Smith and Jason Flebotte, which gives each song a unique sound. Being from the South, the music inherits a slight southern flavor that is evident from the vocals to the guitars.

Floodgate released their first CD, entitled "Are You Ready?" in May of 2002. With the release of "Are You Ready", Floodgate garnered the attention from Alabama's largest Christian radio station, WDJC 93.7FM, who named the band their local artist of the month for May of 2002. Their power worship ballad, "More Love", received significant airplay and still resides in their "Worship at One" rotation.

Floodgate's sophmore CD, "Hero", was released in June of 2004 and has already garnered airplay on Alabama's largest Christian Radio Station in Birmingham.

Floodgate has shared the stage with many top Christian acts such as Salvador, Jeff Deyo, Big Daddy Weave, Todd Agnew, Matthew West, Seven Places, Skillet, the David Crowder Band and others. Floodgate spends most of their weekends around the southeastern United States, performing at churches, youth retreats, christian concerts, and outdoor music festivals.

In 2005, Floodgate was selected as the only independent artist to perform onstage at SOULSTOK 05, Alabama's largest Christian music festival.
