The Access, a 5 piece band, born and bred in Baytown, TX, was formed in July 2006. However, The Access final lineup was not in place until January 2008, just days before heading to the studio to record their debut album, The Time Has Come. The Access mission is to affect and inspire a generation called by God, through their music. Industry persons have described The Access as the best thing to happen in decades. The Access music can be felt as well as heard. Their lyrics minister and change lives. This band from Baytown, TX, surpasses your expectations when seen live! It is rare when a band comes along that can produce great music in the studio and to a greater degree reproduce it on stage! The Access music is progressive, passionate, fresh, and worshipful, with a rock twist! Front man Justin Michaels says, "Our goals are to help people, churched and un-churched, to minister life and move a generation into action. We want our music to have meaning. The last thing we want to do as a band, when we get up on stage, is just put on a good show. Yes, we want people to come to our concerts and have a good time but more importantly to experience a move of God. Band guitarist Nick Daniel says, We want to deliver great music with a positive message. A message that does not stray from the values instilled in us by family and church.
There is a generation hungry for something real. We believe The Access is just one of many ministries being raised up in this hour, being used as a conduit, to deliver such a message, to speak hope into a valley of dry bones. The Access debut album, The Time Has Come was officially released on September 6th, 2008. The Access first two of many singles, Pressing On and I Remember When, were officially released to radio on August 8th, 2008! Check them out and see if you agree. You will not be disappointed!
