Smash debut featuring "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and "How To Save A Life." This Denver-based quartet used a grassroots campaign of their local radio station and newspaper to land a major label recording contract. Their demo of "Over My Head (Cable Car)" ended up being one of the most-played songs of 2004 and set the band in motion. The group's piano-based pop rock easily slots in next to adult-contemporary favorites like Five For Fighting and David Gray without missing a beat. Singer Isaac Slade and guitarist Joe King write catchy songs that are earnest and upbeat in their general veneer, recalling both the heartland Americana of Counting Crows and the heart-on-sleeve emotional overload of Dashboard Confessional - iTunes

"As Christians, we set out to make really honest art that is relatable and understandable for people, regardless of their religious orientation or faith background," band member Ben Wysocki says. "Isaac grew up writing Christian songs in a Christian language about Christian themes and Bible verses, and then he started making friends who weren't Christians, and they couldn't understand what he was singing about. They couldn't relate to it. We wanted to steer clear of those labels and a lot of baggage and make art in a way that we can relate to Christians and non-Christians." - Relevant Magazine
