Biography

Right Lane Vacant is an acoustic rock duo that was started by solo artists, Jason Phelps and Maegan deGrood, in early 2004. It began with Jason playing concerts as a solo artist (2001 - 2004) and Maegan joining with him to sing amazing harmony. This added such a unique flavor to Jason's music that the two were ignited with the idea to do this together. As the two were growing in a relationship with each other (now engaged), it seemed natural to pursue the future duo of RLV.

The two started off their adventure at the LCMS National Youth Gathering in Orlando, FL summer of 2004. They played 9 concerts, which included opening for Bob Lenz, Bill Yonker, Gianna Jessen, Lost and Found, and more! Concert attendance ranged from 30 to 5,000.

RLV has been encouraged by a number of successful artists, including: Summerville (The Pool Boys), Lost and Found, and Mike Lewis (The Jesus Painter) to name a few. They have been an inspiration and a big help in the future of RLV.

RLV soon started touring nationally from California to Florida, from Illinois all the way down to Texas. They have played in approximately 10 states and continue to reach out. Both Jason and Maegan are also full time students at Concordia University, NE, and still manage to play many shows throughout the year. RLV exists to reach out to today's generations with the love of Jesus through music and relationships.

Lyrics

Hebrews 12

Written By: Jason Phelps, Maegan de Grood

Let us throw off everything that hinders
Rip up this net that keeps us still
Please let us run this race marked out for us
Just fix our eyes, our eyes on Jesus Christ

Now faith is sure of what we hope for
And certain of what we do not see
By faith we live for the unseen
of the promise that's been given

Let us throw off everything that hinders
Rip up this net that keeps us still
Please let us run this race marked out for us
Just fix our eyes, our eyes on Jesus Christ

Love is my base and my foundation
Of this life that I have chosen
Peace follows the words that come from my lips
Which completes the puzzle of my life

Let us throw off everything that hinders
Rip up this net that keeps us still
Please let us run this race marked out for us
Just fix our eyes, our eyes on Jesus Christ

Life of hate, life of tears,
Answer the calling that's been calling for years
Hear the voice, make the choice
And live a life, a life of joy

Let us throw off everything that hinders
Rip up this net that keeps us still
Please let us run this race marked out for us
Just fix our eyes, our eyes on Jesus Christ
