Extraordinary talents by extraordinary people

Together these individuals, who’s backgrounds and talents season the groups overall dynamics, have developed the signature sound of a contemporary/Christian rock group which has been a work in progress for the past 5 years. Listen to the lyrics -the messages are clear, uplifting, inspirational and heartwarming.

Their new lead single, “Lay It All Down”, which is off of their new self-titled CD, is a prime example of the perfect blend of voice vs. machine.
The vocals are crisp, yet raw and full of emotion.
The guitar solo in this song signifies a secondary voice which cries out to be heard.
“The theme of this song is for encouragement or motivation to lay these things down -to get rid of your addictions and so on.
We pray it reaches and helps millions of people.”.
