Listen up! – Deep Valleys: closer to you

In just a few short hours Deep Valleys will drop the first single off their new album “Goldhaven”.  I got early access to the track “Closer to You” and I definitely think the wait has been worth it.  It’s different from what they guys have put out in the past with “The Call of the Void” but the new sound is welcomed and done very well. The song starts out with a catchy synth hook and made me wonder who I was listening to but as soon as Brian Naus came in on vocals it gave it the classic and distinct Deep Valleys feel. The song brings a pop punk style and has the dynamics that I love in songs.

When asked about the meaning behind this new track, guitarist John DeJac says “The song is about about the experience of going through the motions of life, feeling small, unheard, undervalued and unable to make a difference. Feeling frankly like “What do you want from me, God?” As the song progresses into the chorus the eyes are turned back to God and resolving at the truth that simply drawing closer to God getting to know Him and His truth makes all the difference. Be close to Him is what really matters to get your life back on track.”

Be sure to listen to this song as soon as it is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other music steaming platforms. If you’re just hearing about Deep Valleys check out their social media and this video of their most recent worship cover of “Reckless Love”

January Spotlight: As We Are

Dale Vaughn of As We Are

Coming out of Mt. Vernon IL, As We Are, has been tearing up venues all across the country and encompassing the heart of a DIY band for the past 6 years. I had the opportunity to experience them live for the first time this past summer at the Kingdom Bound festival in NY as part of their Summer Tour. Their sound and live set took me back to 2007 when I was into bands such as Stellar Kart, MxPx, and Hawk Nelson. Fronted by Dale Vaughn, they are high energy and really know how to connect with the audience. The band recently signed to Raven Faith Records and re-released their self titled “As We Are” EP which includes songs such as “Promise Land” and “Wave Goodbye”. This EP and all their other music can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, and any other music streaming sites.

As We Are is starting 2019 off with a 2 month tour, the no name tour, and will be back in the Buffalo area on January 26th at Stamps the Bar. This headlining show also features the bands Tetelestai, Among the Wolves, Element 36, and Signs of a Slumbering Beast. Make sure to check out their website and social media sites below and check back for photos and video off their upcoming tour!
