♫ MUSIC MONDAY ♫ ANTHEM LIGHTS

Hi All

I came across this amazing band one day by accident while listening to covers of various popular songs and heard their 2012 Mash up which is still my favourite of mine.

Have you heard of them ???

ANTHEM LIGHTS

Anthem Lights began as a solo project for vocalist Chad Graham in the fall of 2007. Both he and singer-songwriter Alan Powell were living in Los Angeles, writing music for Graham’s solo project. As the final vocal work was being installed, Powell and Graham came to a realization that the songs being written would be more appropriate performed as a group. It was then that Powell and Graham decided to alert their contacts atLiberty University in an effort to recruit members for what was now a singing group. Powell and Graham’s contacts came to a consensus that Kyle Kupecky and Caleb Grimm would be the best candidates for the project. After receiving notifications by e-mail, Graham flew from Los Angeles to meet with Kupecky and Grimm, who gladly accepted membership. Powell joined the group at the last minute.

The original name of the group was Yellow Cavalier. The group recorded one self-titled EP under this name in 2009. The EP was released independently on May 26, 2009. The group changed their name to Anthem Lights before any other projects were released.The group’s name changed to Anthem Lights sometime after their independent release as Yellow Cavalier. Months later, the group signed to Reunion Records. Vocalist Kyle Kupecky comments about the meaning behind the name

These songs [and] this record is our anthem to the world saying, “Listen, we know there’s a lot of darkness in this life, but in the end, light is gonna WIN.” And we wanna be the light to people and just show them who the light of the world is

Following the May 6, 2012 show in Williamsburg, VA, Kyle Kupecky announced his departure from the group. He is planning to pursue a career as a solo Christian artist. A week later, Joseph Stamper was announced as the new member of the group
