“Co-produced by Ty Tabor (King's X), this project is definitely a labor of love and has been a long time coming for these guys. Brought together by friendships, a love of God, and a desire to share life experiences, this band brings a fresh approach to music and ministry. The band says, 'until you are willing to sacrifice out of love for someone you have no business preaching.' 'We hope that through our music and ministry we are able to live out these ideas and share the joy and healing that only comes from knowing Jesus.'”
