Bio

During the formation of the band in March of 2005 it was decided that the influence would be a combination of many music backgrounds mixed into one unique sound. This blend has led to creating songs with a feel of rock, pop, country, blues and of course contemporary Christian. Leading the way is the talent of songwriter Jeff LaFollette. Jeff’s background and style have shaped a sound that can be compared to leading contemporary and rock Christian artists, but are certainly not identical.

The makeup of the band’s members ranges in ages of 20 to 40, which bring a generational mixture of influence. Originally a four piece, the band added another guitar and a female vocalist to bring broader dynamics to both the music and the lyrics. The songs tell stories of personal life histories both before and after giving their lives to God. The hope of this music ministry is to relate those stories to similar life events of the listeners to either edify their faith, or reach the hearts of those that have not yet built a relationship with the Savior.

For six months the band honed its lyrics and sounds before embarking on the first attempt to take it to the public’s ears. The response was everything that was hoped for a new band. Inspired by this, the band recorded 4 demo tracks and met with Journey Records president Zane King. Although Mr. King’s label is best recognized for Southern Gospel artists, he accepted the demo and offered to help with connections in the Christian music industry. Six months later the band received a call from producer Steve Allen of Square One Studios in Nashville, TN curious to hear more.

Steve Allen is best recognized for producing the hit from Bob Carlisle, “Butterfly Kisses”, a multi-million copy seller and has worked with Gospel notables Legacy Five, Bill Gaither Family and Russ Lee. After hearing the rough demos he contacted the band again with interest of bringing us into the studio to make a Rock/Pop Christian album. We obliged the offer, raised the needed funds and headed to Nashville to begin work on our dream after being together just more than a year. Leaning on the professionalism and guidance of the studio the bands sound was honed even more staying very close to its originality.
