Hey all! New band to check out! From Northern California (Hey! Northern Cali girl here! Woo!) they are called Five A.M.
I have been listening to their newest album, Raise The Sun. That is some seriously good stuff! My favorite tracks are "Be Still" and "Fall Apart", although I enjoy the whole album overall. The lyrics are insightful and some songs seem to have a bit of a spiritual tone without being religiously overzealous. Which, I dig completely. I love songs that connect with me that way. This album has plenty of that.
I love the raspiness (is that a word?) of Trent Yaconelli's voice. The message he delivers is conveyed with raw passion. The music is edgy and fervent, yet with soulful moments. A definite must listen to album!
Band members are:
- Trent Yaconelli : Lead Vocals and Guitar
- Zach Hammer : Lead Guitar and Vocals
- Jason McGrath : Bass
- Jed Friesen : Drums
- Benjie Kushins : Piano, Keys and Percussion
