As most of you probably have no idea, I'm in a music group called EDIFY. It's a Christian music group consisting of myself and a friend of mine. It's classified as hip-hop but we're always experimenting with other genres and blending things together. We're not typical (I wouldn't have it any other way!). So far we've been working with contemporary, metal, acoustic, pop, electronic, and other styles. Maybe we'll even do something with neo-classical and orchestral sometime. We've finally got our first single out the door called Superstar. It's already playing on a few radio stations in Canada and the US (and possibly the UK, I'm not sure). We've got a few shows lined up in Winnipeg in the next coming months if you're near. In January sometime we may be possibly opening for a group called FM Static which is made up of the same musicians and artists as the internationally known Christian rock band Thousand Foot Krutch so that's a pretty decent break. And in November we're touring with a band called That Place in Ontario.

It's been a very long road getting this all together and moving forward. Originally we had a 7-piece band called The Free Agency which went nowhere for the longest time. Slowly everyone departed and it was just my friend and I left which is fine because we were already working closely together anyway. I'm the composer and guitarist for the group and my friend Alex is the lyricist and vocalist. We had a guest female vocalist on this particular song named Dee Liandra who did a simply phenomenal job. Our first album is coming out soon once we get the rest of the tracks done, but as of now enjoy Superstar!
