Novice Nation - "Self Titled" 2008
Novice Nation - "This Time I'm Yours" 2010 spring



Novice Nations biggest bond (other than the fact that Ben married Jason's sister) is that they are all active members in a new church in Thief River Falls MN. They started playing together for this purpose and have since stepped out to record original music, and play an assortment of venues. Novice Nation started with the notion that for some of their listeners, it's just good music. For others, it is spiritually encouraging. We look up to bands like Switchfoot, and the Foo Fighters.
Ben and Grant both have wives and daughters and work full time locally. Jason is engaged to be married and is working on a masters degree in chemistry. Michael is a full time student. We all come from pretty different backgrounds but have been able to find common ground in music for almost 4 years now with 3/4 of the members still active. Our hope is to simply be the best band we can be, have a positive effect locally, and if possible have a bigger effect as far as the music can take them.
We are about to release our 2nd full album, and are super excited for the gigs we have lined up this summer.
With Novice Nation, you get great music, and a solid positive message. For some, the show will just be a good time, for others, it may be a deeper experience. One last thing. Novice Nation never cancels a gig. ;-)
