Lovelite, in partnership with Come&Live!, has announced the release of their latest offering. Nearness will be available as a free download on October 5th, 2010. The husband and wife fronted band once again bring beautiful harmonies and a blend of Euro-influenced indie, rock and pop sounds. But more than a genre, this is a work of art designed for the purpose of worship.
“Overall, this album reflects a journey that we’ve been on, and our fight against falling prey to spiritual dryness,” shares Andrew Polfer.  Lyrically, Lovelite has crafted eight songs that share their desire for renewal and a closer relationship with Christ. “They came from a real place of wanting God to renew our passion and drive for ministry.”
Musically, the rock worship sound easily fits into the indie scene with its creativity and uniqueness.  In addition, an 80’s synthesizer found its way into their hands before they went into the studio. It was love at first sound – and can be experienced on every track of the album.
Lovelite’s mission statement states that, “We are a band whose vision is to inspire praise in the hearts of His people and desire in the hearts of His lost.” Nearness is no exception. They are dedicated to bringing the church unique worship music that can still be used for congregational worship.

ABOUT Lovelite:
Lovelite formed in 2005, when Andrew and Jen Polfer had a handful of worship songs and a desire to use them for God’s glory. A local college worship team began playing their songs and became their first backup band. Since then, they have released All Color, and now Nearness. As a part of Come&Live!, Lovelite makes music with the desire to function as missionaries in the music industry and offer their music as a free gift. “We knew this was a sacrifice of praise that He was calling to make,” shares Andrew.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Between the White Noise
