In the summer of 2009, the Lord gifted a unified vision to the hearts of six friends from Orlando Florida. That vision quickly developed into the atmospheric worship band now known as Bellarive. Their heart is to craft artistic worship music for the creation to sing straight to the Father above. Bellarive believes that God is calling them to lead these songs not just inside the four walls of a church, but to whoever will lend an ear.
Band member Sean Curran says it this way, "The Creator is continuously stirring the souls of all His children toward Himself. We believe that God creates His children with specific design to reveal and bring glory to Himself in unique ways. For the six of us, that gift is creating music." The band believes there to be a beautiful relationship between Spirit and sound, and expresses that connection through their worship individually and corporately. Melissa Mage states, "We pray that we would be the conduit between the Creator and His creation and that His glory would always be the focal point."
Bellarive travels throughout the year leading for churches, colleges, missions groups, conferences, camps and concerts. They've just begun work on their first full-length album. You can preview and purchase their current EP "The Being Human Project…Start Listening" by clicking on the Music tab.
Worth Road was founded in August 2012 in Jacksonville, Florida by James Tansey and Adam Cotton trying to revive a past project that the two were a part of in high school. Over the course of the next six months they were introduced to, and eventually brought on as full members, Christian Mills, Stephen Handley, and Ben Sheffield to help accomplish their vision for Worth Road as the now almost completely new band. With Adam and James leading worship for Switzerland Community Church and Stephen, Ben, and Christian leading worship for Fruit Cove Baptist the guys have gathered a loyal following in the surrounding areas and quickly started writing and making plans to record an EP, titled "Redirection" to release to their quickly growing fanbase with a full length album titled "Ghosts We Knew" scheduled for later this year.
Worth Road's music speaks to the Christian and non-Christian alike with messages of imperfection and dependence on The Father along with messages of growing up and changing for the better. Although their original music differs from their worship leading alternatives, they never shadow the focus of bringing glory to God and speaking the Gospel to whoever will listen, be it through music or just simply conversation. Though not a worship album, "Ghosts We Knew" yields itself heavily to underlying messages of Christianity having been inspired by C.S. Lewis' book "The Great Divorce". "The whole story is this group of ghosts who, from Hell, get to go visit Heaven and the whole book is their conversation with the angels, and it's all about these angels trying to convince the ghosts to let go of the things that they desperately want to hold on to from Hell and to embrace Heaven... That book made me think about my own life and these songs are what came out," says Adam Cotton about the inspiration for the album.
Worth Road is working hard to create veracious music that relates to everyone through experience and openness, and to finish the albums they've started while playing shows to promote their ideals on life and not giving up so that everyone might hear the Good News and be encouraged to take off the limitations that we've all grown accustomed to. Come talk to us at our shows and tell us your story, we promise to continue telling ours.
