Biography

My life before me in one choice-
I’m being led here by your voice,
So let me tell you with this sigh;
I’m taking the road less traveled by…

"Long Road Home"


My Book Your Sandwich is an experience through life, love, and faith- and the music they make. Songwriter Spencer Sweeting fronts the band with soulful vocals that leaves his words convincing and real. New bassist Jon Smock rock-solid rhythms accentuate Nate Reed’s electrifying drums to provide a foundation on which to build each song into an anthem. Karl Fisher and Chris Jones form a fresh tandem in rock music, marinating songs with Fisher’s effect-laden mandolin and Jones’ piercingly smooth, melodic tones. This maturing band has finally discovered their sound, and when the pieces come together, a truly new breed of rock music is formed.

With influences ranging from U2 to Nickel Creek, and contemporary gospel to traditional folk, t’s easy to see why this band has an effect on listeners young and old. It’s hard not to feel as if Sweeting pulled the songs from your own mind. He is able to write relevant lyrics that will end up in your quote box. The band clearly believes in his words, and each instrument strives to help tell the story. Unsatisfied with being common, they prove a fervent desire to break free from the ordinary with songs like "The Great Escape" and "Long Road Home". They wax poetically about true love on the aptly titled "To Whom it May Concern". Unashamed of their beliefs, they pull no punches on the matters of faith. On the anthemic "I Will", they look through the eyes of Jesus Christ as he struggles with the cross and ultimately shows what sacrifice is all about.

This is what My Book Your Sandwich is passionate about: creating music that serves as a vehicle to a message that all five hold dear to their hearts. They desire to reach the world through rock and roll, always looking forward to the day they finally get to the end of their journey and “wipe their feet on the welcome mat of grace” ("Painting Heaven"). My Book Your Sandwich invites you to join them in this journey, and they promise to give you a little Something for the Ride Home.

As I’m looking towards tomorrow
I won’t have to second guess
Because I know that I’ll be running home to you…
