Biography

The Messiah Prophet Band was the creation of bassist Dean Pellman. The foundation of the band was forming in the late seventies by Dean who was using Jesus music as a vehicle for his ministry around central Pennsylvania. Dean and a friend of his, Gil Tabor started the Messiah Prophet Band as an acoustic duo, performing songs by seventies Christian rock artists such as Randy Stonehill, Keith Green and Phil Keaggy at a Christian camp in the Pocanos. Dean was also ministering to kids in the local juvenile detention centers. Through those ministries Messiah Prophet Band was formed into a full band around 1983. The bands initial line up was singer Charlie Clark, guitarists Andy Strauss and Rob Clark, drummer Dave Daubert and Pellman handling the bass duties. The band rehearsed and played shows in and around the Lebanon, PA area. By 1984 the band secured a record deal with Morada Records. Morada was a tiny label based in Nashville that signed mainly gospel artists. Other artists on the Morada label included Rob Cassels and Austintown Ohio folk rockers Omega Sonship Band. Another band that signed to the label in 1984 was one of Christian rocks heaviest band up to that point, Saint. In the spring of 1984 Messiah Prophet Band began recording their debut album at Wintergreen Studios. Wintergreen was a small 16 track studio located in nearby Hershey. The studio was owned and operated by Cedric Winters, a high school friend of Pellmans. Cedric engineered the sessions while then band manager Jim Zimmerman produced.
