Biography

Because there is a wide range of ages amoung the musicians in Press On, influences are also wide spread. Steve and Joey are old rockers straight out of the 70's with influences from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, & Grand Funk Railroad. Tonia was influenced by the 80's with the big hair bands like Bon Jovi as well as The Pretenders & Blondie. All of this secular stuff was refined by the hand of God into a productive ministry for the advancing of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, following the wake of ministries like Casting Crowns, Newsboys, & Third Day.
We believe it's evident who our influences are when you hear what we sound like. We just hope to sound more like something that would reach the ear and heart of those who are lost as well as pleasing to the saints.

Lyrics

One In A Million

Written By: Joey Shedd

One In A Million

TIMES ARE CHANGING, REARRANGING
WHAT GOD HAS LAID OUT
SATANS LEGIONS, THROUGHOUT THE REGIONS
GROW WITHOUT A SOUND

RESOLUTION - REVOLUTION
IS AT OUR FINGER TIPS
REVELATION CELEBRATION
CRIES OUT FROM OUR LIPS

HE'S NOT JUST ONE IN A MILLION
ONE IN A BILLION
HE'S NOT JUST ONE IN A TRILLION
HE'S JUST THE ONE
YES THE ONE

HOW CAN GOD SAVE US FROM THIS MESS
HOW CAN GOD RATE US AS HIS BEST
HOW CAN GOD PASS US AFTER THIS TEST
HOW CAN WE ASK FOR MORE
WHEN WE DESERVE LESS

Boogie For The Lord

Written By: Joey Shedd

Boogie For The Lord

Some people boogie to country
Some people boogie to rock
But I'm gonna boogie to Jesus
Although it may come as a shock

cus I'm boogieing for the Lord
And I'll boogie for the devil no more
Boogieing for the Lord
And I'll boogie for the devil no more

To some it's a sin to boogie
To some it's a sin to dance
But I'm gonna boogie with Jesus
If you gimme just half the chance

Boogie for the Lord
Boogie for the devil no more
Boogie for the Lord
Boogie for the devil no more

Some people worship in silence
Some jump, scream, & shout
But I'm gonna boogie with Jesus
Cus thats what it's all about

Boogie for the Lord
Boogie for the devil no more
Boogie for the Lord
Boogie for the devil no more

What About You

Written By: Joey Shedd

What About You

What day the rapture comes, nobody knows
But when Jesus finally comes, and the trumpet blows

(chorus)

Some will live up above, some will die below
Some will share Gods wonderful love, but some will never know

(chorus)

So you ask what can you do, to escape the pain and strife
Believe that Christ, he died for you, for us he gave his life

Chorus:

First the dead in Christ will rise, and the living too
I'll be one of those to rise, what about you

A Few Degrees Cooler

Written By: joey shedd

I went to church every sunday
At least I kept my pew warm
Ask me to work maybe someday
We'll talk of it next sunday morn

Just a few degrees cooler
Are the cries from below
Just a few degrees cooler
Is all they want to know

My mother sang in the choir
My daddy taught sunday school
My sister hung out with the youth group
I though that that wasnt cool

Just a few degrees cooler
Are the cries from below
Just a few degrees cooler
Is all they want to know

But now I live my life for Jesus
At church we work preach and pray
Maybe someday you'll come and join us
Hoping someday you'll never say

Just a few degrees cooler
Are the cries from below
Just a few degrees cooler
Is all they want to know
