Biography

Saved On Sunday is like a modern day clash of good old fashioned rock ‘n roll and blues. Fans of all ages have drawn a variety of comparisons of the band’s music to everything from Elvis Presley to the Rolling Stones and from Creed to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s second album with GarPax Records which marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense promise. Little wonder that SOS has chosen to title it, directly and emphatically, “Revolution!”

“This album is a pretty well rounded compilation of ‘us’ and our stylistic diversity,” says Daniel Brown with obvious excitement. “Being our second recording project, everybody was totally comfortable with the process, which made it so easy to really just express ourselves through the music. With God’s help and intervention, it all just poured out of us so fluidly and effortlessly.”

Produced by Gary S. Paxton (8 time grammy award winning songwriter/artist/producer), the Iowa based band introduces its new three piece configuration in which rhythm guitarist/lead vocalist Daniel Brown and lead guitarist phenomenon/backup vocalist Clinton Marker are joined with and drummer Nathaniel Thatcher. Each member has their own unique history of musical experience and diversity that leads to an incredibly intriguing sound for Saved On Sunday.

“We had a stylistic epiphany,” Brown says of the band’s exponential leap. “We realized we’re not the kind of band that’s ever going to fit neatly into one genre, and this time we just let the songs be the songs. We just naturally wound up playing them in a certain way — they all have that beat to them, an attitude and a mood that’s hard to find in Christian music. You have to either want to dance to it or cry to it. But there’s also a feistiness to these songs that’s completely unapologetic.”

The musical genre of SOS is all over the place and unconventional. Once you think you’ve got them figured out with their hard hitting rock ‘n roll energetic “fastballs,” they completely switch it up and throw you an absolute “curveball” and try to melt your heart with an emotionally driven ballad or worship oriented song. “There’s nothing worse for me than listening to an entire album and feeling like I just listened to the same song for 45 minutes,” said Marker regarding the band’s musical diversions. “We try to really mix it up and give you a lot of different looks and moods to keep it fresh. Whether we’re straight up charging you with tempo and energy, laying down the funky fresh, ripping the blues or slowing it down for a more deep and serious emotion, we try to do it with its own individual sound.”

Saved On Sunday has made a name for themselves regionally as a refreshingly unorthodox and energetic Christian rock ‘n roll band that all ages can enjoy. Drawing from a variety of musical influences from the “good ole’ days of rock ‘n roll” while presenting it with a modern edge and tone, SOS has seemingly bridged the generational gap for fans across the Midwest. All geared up and ready to rock ‘n roll stages around the world, Saved On Sunday is ready to stake its claim in today’s Christian music scene.

“After years of trying to figure it out our own way, we were failing to keep it together. But after one humbling experience after another, we realized we were trying to keep it all for ourselves,” says Brown about the band’s recent success. “Once we truly gave it all to God and let Him be the center of our focus and music, things truly began to break for us. So we want to always be humble and direct the glory and honor where it’s due, and that is NOT in ourselves or in Saved On Sunday. It is in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For through Him, ALL things are possible.
