The best kept secret in music


"Rockin' St. Louis"

"Someday, things will get better, and someday, the sun will shine brighter."
That someday is now for the artists of these lyrics. Hillsboro christian/emo/indie rock band, Longing For Providence, just keeps getting better and is starting to hit it big on the local music scene.
LFP opened with "Someday" at Mississippi Nights and closed with the first public performance of their new song, which has yet to be named. The music seemed to flow from one song to the next without noticeable pause between pieces. The addition of transitions between songs made the performance more of a show than a concert.
One thing is for sure, though, Saturday's show was a definite success. Longing For Providence can hold their heads high, facing what could be a light at the end of a tunnel. - The Journal-News/Nick Pretnar

Feeling a bit camera shy


Longing For Providence started as a guitar project in the basement of Devin Moroney's house. Originally, it was vocalist/guitarist, Kale Booher, and guitar/vocalist, Devin Moroney, who started the project. Realizing that this was no way to play or listen to music, the duo began to find people that would add some bass and drums. After finding the right people to fill these positions(Devin Greenwood-bass, Quinn Buerkett-drums), the new band decided on the name Eight Percent Complete. For 2 years, due to busy schedules, the band played a small show rarely. After a dissappointing lineup change, eight percent complete lost their bass man. Not ready to give up, the band searched for someone that could fill his shoes. Devin met Cary at a local show and discovered his musical ability with a song that he had recorded. Devin quickly asked Cary to learn the band's songs, and he did just that. One night after practicing the songs, it clicked. Everyone knew that Cary was the new, well-deserved bass player. Cary was very gracious for the spot in the lineup. The foursome that night decided to change their name to Longing For Providence. Since then, the band has been trying to play as many shows as they can, and has done each and every one with much passion. After hard work, the new band earned a spot to play for battle of the bands at the 2005 Agape Music Festival in Greenville,Il., as well as venues such as Mississippi Nights in St. Louis, Mo. Each member has a love for music and display it each and every show.
