In December '05, the band brought singer Melody Burr into the mix.
We auditioned several singers and then Melody
came to us asking if I could record/produce a demo CD for her
I said yes & was therefore able to 'audition' her
voice & personality without her
even knowing it which, quite frankly, resulted in the purest audition possible.
After finishing her
demo CD, I then told her
that we were looking for a singer if she
was, so we went through the many additional phases of auditioning Melody
which culminated in her
singing with us live at Higher Grounds Coffee House in December '05.
was a good fit & we invited her
to join the band!
The Lord stepped up to the plate and went yard on this one, literally bringing Melody
to us as opposed to us finding her
Melody Burr grew up in Statesboro, Georgia and graduated from Georgia Southern University with a BBA in Marketing and moved to the Atlanta area shortly thereafter working as a graphic designer.
