Biography

Established in the spring of 2006, Sorrow Underfoot is a girl led Christian rock band based out of Southern California. Founded by two sisters, the band consists of Shannon Taylor (singer/song writer/keyboardist), Brittany Taylor (guitarist), Justin Taylor (drummer), Chris Wright (Guitarist), Joshua Campbell (bassist).

The mission of Sorrow Underfoot is to reach out to teens and challenge them about the pop culture and lifestyle that surrounds them. Committed to their purpose, their collective style and sound has begun to emerge - but more importantly, their mission.

With countless hours in the garage, the band has worked diligently writing songs and learning their craft. 2006 and 2007 brought the band many shows in the Southern California area. They played at many churches, coffee shops, festivals, concert halls, and among these they performed at the 2006 Indie Showcase at Spirit West Coast in Del Mar, CA. The band's music has evolved through the years and Sorrow Underfoot recently released The Epicentric EP in July 2008, which was recorded with Red Crosby Studios.

In the winter of 2006 the band was asked by Calvary Chapel Church Planting Missions to headline outreach concert series in different Russian cities. Now the band has traveled to Russia four times and will be leaving again in December for their fifth Russia tour.

Lyrics

Close Your Eyes

Written By: Sorrow Underfoot

Walking around with the street lights out trying to make sense of everything, I've paid my dues and done my time, but these questions still intrigue my mind, Trying to see life in the black and white yet I'm stuck here in the gray, there's nothing one can do or say so I turned and walked away, and you said

Close your eyes and open your heart, cuz you'll never ever see the unseen, if you find it by your own means, so close your eyes and open your heart, cuz you'll never truly know what love is if you keep these misconceptions oh

People say this and people say that they follow just like sheep, with symbols of their love and peace but do they know just what they mean, children are starving people are dying they dance right to the song, in bliss they live in ignorance they've embraced for oh so long and you said

Close your eyes and open your heart yea open your heart, close your eyes and open your heart yea open your heart

Cuz we'll all be blind if we don't just close our eyes, oh I want the world to see what you've make me to believe, cuz we'll all be blind if we don't just close our eyes, oh I want the world to see what you've make me to believe, to be free

Close your eyes, close your eyes and open your heart

Close Your Eyes
