Silent Bold & True
Praise and worship is an important part of our walk with God. Formed in 2001, His Word set out to bring praise and worship songs to people with their rock-based style. They feature a combination of popular Christian music with their own original Christian-based songs. His Word strives to make everyone in the audience a part of their music, something that sets them apart from other bands. Their combination of worship and rock has been influenced by worship driven artists including Jeff Deyo and Michael W. Smith. His Word's goal is to make every event they play a worship experience, not just a concert. Former band leader Bill Overton and several other original members of His Word helped start the GTY Praise Band in 1998. They led music for youth activities and began leading worship for the contemporary service at St. Anne of Grace Episcopal Church. In 2001 Bill and several members of the praise band formed His Word and began touring with St. Anne's youth group, Grace to Youth. They started becoming more of a rock band, and in late 2002 the transition was complete with the addition of drummer Mike Tunnell. Early 2006 brought many changes for His Word. After graduating college, Bill left the band to start a career and a family in North Carolina. Brian Overton became the principal singer for His Word, and the band also saw the addition of percussionist/drummer Omar Renderos. The 'new' band had a different sound, but the same heart for worship that His Word has always had. His Word has been playing concerts, conferences, and retreats in southwest Florida and other areas throughout the state since 2002. They hope to expand their reach throughout the southeastern US. They have recently partnered with the independent Rev Music Group label. In November 2007 His Word released their debut CD, Silent, Bold and True.
