About the Reaching:

In early 2007 four friends began writing songs together. They quickly learned that they shared a great ability to blend their personalities, abilities and influences into something… something good. The group, featuring Jake McVay (vocals/guitar/piano), Kyle McGuire (guitar), Mark Blaney (bass), and Ericka Wallace (drums), came together in Tacoma, WA.

They soon adopted the name 'The Reaching'. Inspired to write music that connected both sonically but also with a 'message'. The Message that there was more out there. That life with its highs and lows joins humanity in 'like' experiences. Justus, Mercy, Grace… Redemption… Drawing on their strong faith in Jesus, and at the same time realizing that not everyone shares that faith. The desire to share a message of hope. Music conveys a both the message and the emotion and hopefully meets people where they are.

In 2008 we recorded our first project, "The Fairytale Has Left Us Bleeding". Over the years we have been building a faithful fan base in and around the Seattle/Tacoma area. Playing many of the popular venues including The Showbox, The Central, Jazzbones, Studio 7, The Highdive, The Skylark, The Mars Bar, Anthem and many more...

The past three years have brought a lot of changes and a lot of challenges. All of those things have lead us to the word "Seasons". It's the best way to describe where we have been as a band. 

It's our hope that anyone listening will be able to connect to the joys and pain experienced through the songs. And walk away filled with hope.
