Bayless has quickly become an up and coming band, sharing the stage with the likes of Thousand Foot Krutch, Disciple, Building 429, Mikeschair, Chasen, to name a few. The combination of powerful melody lines, heavy guitar riffs blended with piano and toe tapping rhythms, Bayless has caught the attention of many listeners abroad.
Most recently, Bayless teamed up with Justin Forshaw (formerly of We As Human & currently of As We Ascend) to have him mix their single “My Declaration”, which was written based upon the book “My Declaration” by Jared & Vanessa’s Lead Pastor, Jeff Maness (available on Amazon).
Their song, “To War” reached #10 on national radio station, The Effect, and was voted #5 most popular song, right next to RED and Skillet. Their song, “Alive” also climbed into the top 30 on The Effect, joining “To War” from their album Sabotage.
Bayless has been blessed to have been produced by Jon Steingard, front man for Hawk Nelson and to have had their album mixed by Grammy-nominated, Pete Stewart. Sabotage has gained several slots on radio stations around the country, along with their Within My Reach album, where songs such as “Venom”, “30 Silver Coins” and “Lay Me Down” also gained radio play at various stations.
They have been blessed to have shared the stage with names such as Thousand Foot Kruthc, Building 429, Mikeschair, Aaron Shust, Cloverton, LyBecker, FireFlight, and more.
Bayless was one of the previous winners of the Air 1 Battle of the Bands competition in Kansas City, and privileged to play at such venues as Arrowhead Stadium and the Rock The Light Festival with several other big name artists. They are also featured in the October issue of HM magazine as the “Pick Of The Litter”.
Bayless wants to continue to reach people with the message of the music and continue to help people in all walks of life, while challenging their faith and worldview.
Why we do what we do…
First off, this is a ministry. We love and serve our savior, Jesus Christ with all our hearts. And it’s our desire to share that love with others around the world. We believe one of the most effective ways to reach others is by simply listening to their stories.
Our music is inspired by these stories. Stories of addiction, loneliness, hope, loss, love, perseverance, deception… light and darkness…
We write & play our music in the hopes of others hearing, relating, and realizing they are not alone in this world. We write & play in the hopes of meeting these people and learning why they are who they are.
If even one person’s life is impacted by something we’ve written, then we’re already a successful band.
Give us 45 minutes to tell you our story, then come talk to us after and tell us yours. Who knows? We might even write a song about it…
