Give Love a Name
Christian experimental worship band out of Dallas, TX. Their full-length debut, Give Love a Name, is a blend of strong instrumental melodies and articulate verse that formulates a new approach to the worship genera. Several opportunities have enabled Michael to travel throughout the United States, Mexico, Spain, and England, playing in both religious and secular venues alike. He completed the four-song EP, 'Not What Sounds Right' in September 2004 along side engineer/producer, Corbin Miles, of Ignition Productions. In November 2005, Michael released his first full-length album entitled 'Give Love a Name.' This self-produced album was recorded during Summer 2005 in both Medina, NY at Viking Studios and in Dallas, TX at The Hot Box. With musical influences such as Copeland, Death Cab for Cutie, Explosions in the Sky, and a host of other independent artists, this 3-piece attempts to restructure past and present approaches to worship music through exposing their foundations of faith in innovative form. Together with band-mate Jon Cook, Michael and drummer succeed in capturing the style at it's core, producing a sound that is fundamentally distinguished and effortlessly recognized.
