Rags Blue

Rags Blue


If a band were a vending machine, it would be called Rags Blue. We write and perform about the things that we care about most: faith, family, and 'caffenating' each day with a little optimism. We enjoy it all, and we hope you will, too.


Rags Blue
It's a strange name that popped into the imaginative mind of Matt Duren one day while mowing his yard. It's unusal, yet catchy. If inspiration hits you at odd times, run with it.
Our sound is a mix of all of our influences: jazz, blues, pop, rock, gospel, and maybe even a little funk. If a song comes out rockin...so be it. If it's jazzy...cool. We play to inspire and are inspired to play. Our appeal is to both young and old. Our lyrics come from life, music, love, and faith. No matter what the size and mood of an event, whether performing a concert at a church, community event, a coffee house, or a wedding reception, we enjoy it all. Thanks for taking the time to check us out. We hope to see you on the road soon. RB


Meant To Be

Written By: Matt Duren

All I was meant to be in this life
You make me to be
All I was meant to be in this life
You save me, You save me to be

You're my inspiration
My every move's supply
You're my invitation
To the perfect life

You are high above me
But You know my name
Ever since I met You
I have never been the same
Again, and I never will be

I need Your life in me
I feel Your life in me
I see Your life in others
Can others see Your life in me


In Light of You (12 song debut album)
