There are a myriad of options before us as we approach life, and there are simply so many ways each one of us could spend our time. The great joy is that each one of us has a destiny to fulfill – indeed, each of us has been woven together for a specific purpose in this time, this place, and these lives we have been given. It's a powerfully beautiful thing when a person realizes this. The four members of Come Wind have been allowed to look deep into this beauty, and have walked away with a mission.
Driven by the conviction that life is in fact meant to be lived fully, Come Wind seeks to craft music that helps people become who they are meant to be. More than anything, the band hopes their music encourages and emboldens those who hear it, inspiring them to do great things.
During the winter of 2009, Come Wind recorded their debut EP at Red Red Studios in Nashville, TN. Engineered and produced by Joshua Silverberg (formerly of Edison Glass), this handful of songs is slated to be released in the early summer of 2010. Come Wind are pretty jazzed about the EP, and are determined to promote it from every mountaintop they can climb to and in every valley they can crawl through.
Even in the midst of their 'fledgling' status, Come Wind have ample experience with the incredible joy and goodness that music can bring. Truly, there is within music something both vitally human and vitally Other, an experiencing through string and rhthym and voice and song of Presence and holiness. It is this intimate, dynamic experience of both music and the Presence of I AM that Come Wind hopes to share with its listeners. All four members know themselves to have been so blessed; as a result, they desire nothing more intensely than to share this blessing with others.
Understandably, the band is excited and anxiously anticipatory about their future. Come Wind has successfully saddled the ol' music-beast, and it is with true vigor that they must now hold on for their dear lives. No matter which path their adventure takes them on, the members of Come Wind remain confident that the Spirit of God will guide them to exactly where they should be.
Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
