About Anthem Lights
Anthem Lights can trace its roots back to the fall of 2007, when singer/songwriter Alan Powell joined forces with then aspiring solo artist Chad Graham. Both were living in Los Angeles at the time, to pen songs for Chad’s solo effort. But providentially, the more they wrote, the more it became clear that these powerful, harmonic songs were meant for a group.  Within a matter of days, the pieces fell into place when two other Liberty University students — Caleb Grimm and Kyle Kupecky –came on board, “When God put the pieces together,” says Powell, “we just knew it was right.  Everything just fell into place… like it was meant to be.”
After months of writing, recording and prayer, Anthem Lights signed with Reunion Records and began fleshing out what would become its self-titled debut.  The album (May 10, 2011) debuted at No. 2 on iTunes Christian & Gospel Albums chart, while its first single, “Can’t Shut Up,” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian CHR chart.  Its latest single, “Can’t Get Over You,” is currently vying for adds at Christian Adult Contemporary.  Anthem Lights additionally wrapped a 27-city “Rock and Worship Roadshow” tour headlined by supergroup MercyMe this winter and recently stepped off Building 429’s spring 2011 “Listen to the Sound Tour.”  The group will perform at 15 festivals nationwide this summer.
