Razzbarry Jacksonville FL is proud to announce the signing of TEMPLE VEIL, an Acoustic Guitar and Violin Duo based in Tampa Bay, FL. The duo is DeRock (Violin/Vocals) and Brysson (Acoustic Guitar), both former members of the Christian hard rock outfit Post Mortum.

The personalities of these two are as unique as their childhoods. DeRock would best be described as man of action. Thriving in-group settings, he can always be found where the action is. On the contrary Brysson, a laid-back individual, is much more likely to be found working in seclusion or engaged in a deep one-on-one conversation. Watching football and movies is a top source of entertainment for DeRock, while Brysson enjoys outdoor activities in the likes of hiking and fishing. Yet they have established a deep rapport.

In addition to their love of fried okra and their matching red briefcases, there is one thing that unites these two individuals above and beyond all differences, something that supersedes all else in their lives. That is their love for God, people, and music; and their passion, purpose, and calling to bring all these together. Though influences of their diverse backgrounds may be inescapable, DeRock and Brysson have deserted there past, leaving everything to unify the immeasurable passion of their hearts.

“We find Temple Veil’s music to be uplifting and encouraging, as well as a completely original sound for the Christian market and beyond! But what impresses us most is their heart for worship and vision for the church of today.“ – Razzbarry Founder, Barry Blaze

With non-stop touring the past two years across the USA and Canada, playing over 320 shows performing and leading worship, Temple Veil recently took time in Nashville to begin working on new music, writing with such notables as Aaron Rice (Toby Mac, Mandisa, Stephanie Smith), Brian White (Avalon, Karyn Williams, Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins), Chad Roland (Bryan White, Mackenzie Morgan, Crawford and James), and Krissy Nordhoff  (2012 Dove Award winner for the worship song YOUR GREAT NAME).
With all rock and roll persona’s aside, no glamour or flair, Temple Veil is stripped down, acoustic, raw, and real. Just as the temple veil was torn upon Christ’s death in the Bible, granting all men access into the Holy of Holies, DeRock and Brysson have unmasked their own lives, opening themselves to the world through Temple Veil


Temple Veil (Tampa Bay, FL) is an Acoustic Worship band. These former members of the Christian hard rock band Post Mortum, DeRock (Vocals, Violin) and Brysson (Guitar), tour continuously, performing and leading worship with over 320 shows the past two years. Their single “Party Song” was recently featured in the Christian Film The Message.

Razzbarry Records (Jacksonville, Florida) is an independent management company founded by Barry Blaze in 2007. Their current roster includes The Great Transparency, Temple Veil, Code of Ethics, and Blaze’s solo worship venture as Barry Blaze.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
