Treating ears and honoring faith, the post-modern indie music of Derek McCloud Band is distinctive. Through cozy melodies, thoughtful instrumentation, and articulate harmonies, it is clear that the heart of the band is to inspire audiences to draw closer to God. The deeply intimate lyrics are a product of the sincere journal scribblings of Derek McCloud, who formed the Atlanta-based band in 2011. Perhaps their most refreshing quality is the musicians' desire to throw focus off themselves and onto raising support for missions providing clean water for those in need. The band’s album “Our Great Lifeboat” is set to be released summer of 2012.
The bands members are:
Derek McCloud (guitar, lead vocs)
Andrea Johnson (cello, piano, vocs)
Ian Kennel (drums, vocs)
Taylor Huse (bass, auxiliary percussion, vocs)
April Johnson (violin, vocs)
