Biography

"Things Not Seen" has formed over the past seven years out of the group's local church worship band. They have written countless songs, and have led countless lives into the presence of God. With every song that they write they make every effort to openly and honestly express heartfelt love and adoration for God. They feel that this can be accomplished with music that delivers a timeless message with a modern sound. Their heartbeat and purpose is to bring people closer to the heart of God through worship as well as provide new and innovative music that will equip the church body, as a whole, to do the same.

The band's founders Tobey Barker and Crystal Burks-Barker have had a passion for music ministry most of their lives. Tobey began playing drums and singing at an early age, but learning piano soon followed. Working closely with the pastoral leadership of his church he began to gain an understanding of the important role of worship. In 2001 he caught the attention of producer, and former lead singer for Newsong, Drew Cline who was, at the time, managing a small contemporary vocal group called The Sound. Tobey accepted an offer from the group and spent the next three or so years on the road.

Crystal's first experience singing on stage happened at age 3. It wasn’t, however, until she accepted Christ at 12 years old that she realized that music was her calling. She began to write original songs and train as a vocalist and musician (piano). In her early teens, she began leading worship, playing piano, and singing at every available opportunity. She started to see, first hand, the power of the presence of God touching lives through worship. With a heart to see the body of Christ fully equipped in the area of worship, Crystal worked with area churches to help raise up musicians and worship leaders, as well as assist in helping them transition from traditional music to modern worship.

Tobey and Crystal are currently the Music Pastors of The Woodlands Christian Center, where Things Not Seen also resides. The band is currently in the studio recording it's debut project set to release in February 2011.
