"Battle of the Bands Enid"

Skyline Circle wins people's choice at enid battle of bands - Enid News and Eagle


"Circling with Christ’s message"

Three young Enid musicians are pursuing a mission of spreading Christ’s message — and they’re picking up quite a few fans in the region along the way.

Skyline Circle is a Christian band with a positive alternative message to what most young people are hearing on the radio today. Their alternative rock sound includes keyboards, guitar and drums.

The band has played locally, and in August 2008, opened for Skillet at Tulsa Mabee Center, where they performed before an audience of more than 4,000. With that exposure, they started getting calls from youth pastors around the state to play at their churches.

Justin Blasier is the drummer. He graduated from the recording program at Full Sail University in Orlando with an associate degree of science. He moved back to Enid and realized he wanted to use his abilities in playing the drums and recording to serve the kingdom of God.

Blasier found Nathan Lauderdale and the two started talking about creating a Christian rock band. Lauderdale is a self-taught pianist and lyricist. He is the lead vocalist and keyboardist and writes all the lyrics for Skyline Circle.

Raquel Carlson joined the group as guitarist after one of the original members of Skyline Circle left the band last summer. She has been singing “since I can remember,” she said.

The band now has picked up a manager in Gary Stripling, who owns The Management Agency, an artist development and management company based in Jacksonville, Fla.

Skyline Circle will be playing several concerts in the area, including Emmanuel Baptist Church in the main sanctuary at 7 p.m. March 28. They also will play in Central National Bank’s Battle of the Bands April 4. Another concert is slated for 7 p.m. April 24 at Knights of Columbus. They recently played two concerts in Garland, Texas.

“We will continue pursuing anything God will lead us to do,” according to a band statement. “As long as God provides we will be here. We do not do this for ourselves. We do this for our Lord and Creator. We feel God has given us these gifts to use as a tool to give back to Him.”

Bio

Skyline Circle has preformed with bands such as: Paul Wright, Everyday Sunday and Skillet

Mission Statement: “To spread Christ to all those who don’t know Him, and to encourage those who know Him to use their gifts, talents, and passions to spread the love and Word of God.”

Skyline Circle began in December of 2007. Their first release was a six song EP titled “A for Affort” which was self produced and recorded. This very basic music brought forth opportunities to perform in the surrounding cities and towns of Enid, OK. This spread started in April of 2008 and continued until the group became restless. They wanted to branch out further, and began making calls to gain contacts.

After coming into contact with Nick Coetzee, owner of Rain Music, the band had an opportunity to release a full album of professional quality. The songs were written, the money was raised, and the practices ensued to prepare for Skyline Circle’s debut album to be named “Lights In Perfect Rows,” recorded in Nashville at CGR (Cryptic Globe Recording) studios owned by Grammy Award winner Steve Lamm.
The release date for the album is September 25, 2009. The band is gaining radio play through Christian Radio Weekly out of Colorado Springs, CO on various stations across the lower 48 states. With a steady growth of their fan base spreading across state lines, Skyline Circle isn’t sure what is next on the “to do” list, but they’re going to continue moving forward until God lands the wave of opportunities.

Thanks for taking the time to visit. God Bless - Skyline Circle
