The dream of Simply Him started with guitarist Cole Duncan and cousin, drummer David Duncan experimenting with their instruments in 2002. They found that they had a talent and immediately they wanted to use it for the glory of the Father. As time progressed they gained a new love for the stage: rotating names, such as Summit 17, Hangar 3, and S.O.S. with singers and other musicians. In 2005 they found bassist Michael Wiggins and singer Alex King to form Grains of Sand, the alternative Christian worship band. After a few shows, tension grew between the band. They split up, but not for long. In 2006, with a new bassist Daniel Duncan, Simply Him was formed along with Cole, David, and Alex. The band now decided to take their dedication level up a notch. They started booking shows at a few area churches where they knew the ministers, and it became common for them to have a show every once in a while. In 2007, the band picked up quite a valuable roadie. Ryan Davis, the new tech, could also play guitar better than the guys knew. It was only until they seen his serious dedication and surprising guitar playing that they drafted him into Simply Him. With the new addition of an extra guitar, and filling back-up vocals, Simply Him was ready to hit the ground running. The band traveled all over playing shows and eventually found themselves in a competition in Chattanooga, TN in the summer of 2007. This being their first competition, they took home the first prize. As the spirits of the band were uplifted, Alex had something different planned for his life. He decided to take a job as a praise and worship leader at a nearby church. From there Ryan and Cole had to take up the vocal position. The band debated on whether or not to hold auditions for another singer. They liked the new Simply Him, but decided to give a couple of singers a shot. After hearing the auditions the band decided to keep the blend of pop/punk vocals of Ryan, and the alternative/rock vocals of Cole. With the projection into the semi-finals of the Shoutfest07 Battle of the Bands, Simply Him has gained a bit of insight and a bit more experience playing in front of a large crowd. The band recorded their first demo in December 2007, and will soon be recording a full album. "More than anything, we want our lyrics to be heard, but without exciting music the crowd is bored." Simply Him not only brings praise to God through their lyrics, but they also implement positive suggestion to struggle and daily problems in the lives of teenagers. Simply Him looks forward to expanding their ministry to the nation, and even the world.

Simply Him is influenced by bands such as Relient K, Jeremy Camp, Switchfoot, Hawk Nelson, Audio Adrenaline and Freshmen 15.
