BandRockAlternative

The Emmaus Project is an high energy alternative rock band from Gillette, Wy. We have two goals in our music: sharing the love and grace of God with those who do not know Him and encouraging those who do. Our musical styles extend over a broad range including punk, rock, alternative, and worship.

Biography

What makes The Emmaus Project unique is that the members are all so different, and that diversity is evident in our music.
Each member of the band has an amazing story of how God has, and is still preparing each of us to serve Him. Most of us have a story of how God has let us go through some unbearably tough and hurtful situations; just to show us that He cares for us and loves us. That is one of the main messages that we bring in our music. We are influenced by many bands, but these are some of our biggest:
Paramore
Switchfoot
Newsboys
Audio Adrenaline
Flyleaf
Fireflight
The Afters
The Emmaus Project is from Gillette, Wyoming in the Northeast corner of the state. It actually started with just Ty and Caleb. They quickly added Dani, as Caleb soon recognized his inability to sing. That trio played several shows over the next six to nine months but realized the need for depth. It was about that time that Justin and Caleb met and became good friends. A few months later, Jared was running sound for a show and fell in love with us. The current collection seems to complete the puzzle for now. We are always looking to God for the direction we should take.
