About

The Story

5 years ago we launched a Kickstarter for our 2nd EP. We had just finished touring our 1st EP all over the nation. Having the time of our lives and leading worship for some amazing people. We had hit a point in our lives where we couldn't continue the strenuous schedule we had been so used to (3 weeks at a time in vans and hotels and sleeping on strangers couches). All of us in the band had major life changes coming (marriage, kids on the way, moving all over the country). We knew we wouldn't be able to finish and share the rest of our songs with everyone if we all went separate ways. So we chose to cancel the campaign. We were torn, bummed, and even confused. This amazing journey somehow came to an abrupt halt. But God kept us all very close over the last 5 years. And recently brought us all together to do an album release for our lead singer's self titled album. We knew something had changed in all of us. And we felt God lead us to discuss making that other EP we had cancelled 5 years ago.

So here we are. Would you consider partnering with us to bring these songs to life? Give them some skin so they could encourage and inspire other people who are walking through devastation and confusion. We believe songs can be like medicine: and we believe one moment in His presence can change our lives.

So grateful,
Derek, Britt, Justin, and Dustin

Where 'The Waiting Kind' came from

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” -Isaiah 40:31

Risks and challenges
