Josh Millwood - Thursday, August 21, 2014
The Joy Ride

The weekend is almost here - so make some plans!


Music could always be heard coming out of Mike Grayson's dorm room, attracting other musicians to volunteer in his jam sessions. Before long, a band had formed! The band gets its name from, you guessed it, the chair frontman Mike Grayson sat in during band practice. It's kind of a lackluster story, actually...

Though they love music, each member of MIKESCHAIR admits it’s about so much more. “We all really have this desire to be involved in ministry,” Hale says. “We are obviously all really passionate about music, but we always want it to be about something more. We saw that we all had the same heart for this and then God just kept opening doors.”

Big Break: Just a few weeks into the band's creation, the guys won Belmont University's Music Showcase competition, signed to CURB Records and got themselves nominated at the Dove Awards for Song of The Year (for Let The Waters Rise).

Family Connections: Mike Grayson is married to Molly Reed who is one half of City Harbor - another awesome Christian act. Molly got her start writing pop hits for Amy Grant.

Album: All Or Nothing
