Biography

Gate 29 is an exciting and new Christian rock band from Birmingham, Al. that came together in December of 2007 as a three-piece cover band. The band was originally formed to provide entertainment at bars and fraternity parties, but the members quickly realized that they were called to glorify God with their musical talents. The first three members of the band were Micah McDaniel, Brandon Watson, and Drew Moore. Shortly after the trio converted to a Christian band Aaron McDaniel was added as the bassist. He was the fourth and final member of the band.

In 2008 the four members of Gate 29 began writing original music and performing live. The band started out their career with a February performance in Huntsville, Al. The band followed up that gig with nineteen more performances across Alabama. The performances ranged from Sheffield to Dothan and Tuscaloosa to Collinsville with an average of 150 in attendance at each location. The band ended their 2008 season back in Birmingham in October.

In November the band went into the studio and recorded their three song demo, Save Me from Myself, which is now available on iTunes. The band has written ten songs, and they have gained quite a unique voice. Gate 29 has often been described as southern, hard rock because of their scorching guitar riffs and Velvet Revolver-like lead. When their hard-hitting drum licks, tight performance, and excellent showmanship are added to the equation you can be sure of an exciting and head-banging performance that will leave the audience screaming for an encore. The lead vocalist for the band sounds similar to Sully Erna of Godsmack, and he possesses a great ability to captivate the crowd and draw them into the music.

Above all, the members of Gate 29 conduct themselves in a professional manner and display great respect for the property of all venues and events that book them. They have been growing rapidly since the release of their demo, and they are expecting to go far in the music industry. They are their own critics, and they use this to make every performance better than the previous. They accept only the highest quality work from themselves, and they will settle for nothing but their best. They use all of the above to further the Kingdom of God and provide clean, fulfilling entertainment to a broad audience.

Lyrics

Save Me From Myself

Written By: Gate 29

Life has been so meaningless.
I will be the death of me.
Locked up in this prison.
Need someone to set me free.
Soul so poor and helpless.
Can't see what's in front of me.
My actions tarnished and unseen.
Just can't find what I need.

Will someone save me from myself?
Cause I need you and no one else.

I've lived my life in unbelief,
Drowning in a raging sea,
Addiction has consumed my life,
Heart as blackened as the night,
Dug so deep I can't get out,
Don't know where to turn to now,
So I put an end to me,
And I fall on my knees.

Will someone save me from myself?
Cause I need you and no one else.

One Last Time

Written By: Gate 29

In this life,
There's not much time.
Are you satisfied
With your soul?
Or do you live a lie,
And tell yourself
You can make it on your own,
All alone?

If you died right now
What would happen to your soul?
If you were laid to rest,
Would you die, or would you live forever?
If this was your last chance,
Would you turn and run away,
Or would your fire burn
Just one last time?

Are you prepared?
Is your soul,
Saved by grace,
Or are you lost in your own ways?
And still you think,
You can make it on your own,
All alone.

If you died right now
What would happen to your soul?
If you were laid to rest,
Would you die, or would you live forever?
If this was your last chance,
Would you turn and run away,
Or would your fire burn
Just one last time?

Speak Your Name

Written By: Gate 29

My well's running out,
Like life's a rain and I'm in a drought,
Covered in all my sin and shame.
And I just simply speak your name.

Cause every time I speak your name,
Your spirit takes away my pain,
And all my losses turn into gain,
Every time i speak your name.

Lord please take me as I am.
Mold me and make me in your hands.
I give my life to do your will,
And at your feet I will kneel.

Cause every time I speak your name,
Your spirit takes away my pain,
And all my losses turn into gain,
Every time i speak your name.
