“Trying to create genuine, original music, while drawing from the music we grew up with, has always been the intention of I Anthem,” frontman, Tyler Edwards said.
Since 2009, the South Carolina based rock band has stayed true to pursuing that vision with the release of EPs “The Things Our Eye’s Can’t See,” (2010) and “Not Afraid Not Alone,” (2011). Edwards produces lyrics that wrestle with themes of hope, love, faith and unanswered questions, providing an enduring and humble framework for music that exudes empathy and thought provoking images. I Anthem’s sound is further rounded out with the collective help of drummer, Tyler Bodkins; and guitarist, Nick Webb.
Compelled by infectious melodies and potent instrumentation, the transparency and emotion of I Anthem’s songs will become ingrained in any listener, as seen in the release of their 2012 single, “Lonely Soul.”
“I have always tried to write lyrics that are completely honest, in hopes that they will transcend myself and my personal experiences,” Edwards said. “I have always seen music as a gift from God –– it is a way to break barriers and find hope in something greater than ourselves.”
Determined to create songs that build community, I Anthem divides their time between touring, writing and recording. The band plans to release their first full-length record “West of Homeland,” which features the hit single Fighting Gravity, in early 2014.
