The Corners

Indie / Folk Rock / Post Rock

Voting has ended for the 2012 New Band Showcase

Native to Hannibal, MO, The Corners synthesizes the musical influences of band members Andy Rhea, Foday Mashburn, and Jayson Lindley into a truly unique indie rock outfit that incorporates musical elements ranging from many diverse genres with a message that is explicitly Christ-centered. 

Rhea, the group's guitarist, vocalist, and wordsmith, describes the band's sound as "rowdy folk...heavy-handed beats with sincere lyrics that will demand your attention" and says their intention is “to magnify the glory of God in the most creative ways we can.” The Corners have been critiqued as a "live experience" with a “dynamic, powerful sound and a refreshingly humble, audience-focused magnetism on stage.”

Launched in 2007, the band began to refine their sound and toured part-time throughout the next few years. The Corners began touring nationwide in the spring of 2010, and their travels have spanned from the Midwest to Texas, Florida, Washington D.C. and everywhere in between.

Jay Sauser of Kansas City, Mo., says that the band’s musical style will “draw you in while their lyrics challenge you to think and ponder. I enjoy what The Corners have to offer as much as I do the likes of Mumford and Sons, Needtobreathe and The New Frontiers.”
