We the Kingdom is a dynamic multi-generational family band!  They released their debut EP in the fall of 2019 called, “Live at the Wheelhouse.” The band is signed to Capitol Christian Music Group and released two singles from the EP. Their first single, “Dancing on the Waves” was released August 16th, 2019.  The second single, “Holy Water” was actually my first impression of the group—I watched a live video performance of it on YouTube! From the very first downbeat, I was in. It had an apparent energy that you could feel right from the start. The crowd was swaying along to the groove as one of the lead singers and the audience sang the opening lyrics together: “God I’m on my knees again. God I’m begging please again I need you!” And once the song approaches the chorus, a female lead vocalist takes over and lifts the song sonically and emotionally with the words “your forgiveness.” If I had to describe the sound, I would say stadium rock worship! I really enjoy their sound! It’s really easy to get swept up in worship and experience the freedom of praise! The lyrics speak to brokenness we have all felt at some point in time but reminds us of the sweetness of God’s forgiveness!  

Riley Clemmons 

Riley’s newest single “Over and Over” is a beautiful reminder of how God is a God of second, third, 100 chances. This song has the feel of a worship song with pop production. Definitely one to check out when you feel like you may be losing sight of the endlessness to God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness. 

Micah Tyler  

“Amen” by Micah Tyler is a celebration of the goodness of God. I couldn’t listen to this song without smiling from ear to ear. As he sings about not being able to contain the joy he has inside, I find myself recalling all the joy He has given me! What a fun song of praise! Now let the church say. “Amen!”
