The band began as worship team members in a church undergoing changes in the mid-1990s. Their transition to a nationally touring act came in 2001 after the release of their first full-length album, entitled Big Star Logistics. In 2002, the band signed with Vertical Music, a subsidiary of Epic Records, and released "Welcome to the Rock 'n' Roll Worship Circus", a 60's flavored blend of congregational, humorous, and personal worship songs. The album was nominated for 4 GMA Dove Awards, and won the award for "Best Art Packaging". It peaked at #31 on Billboard's Top Contemporary Christian Albums chart. In 2003, the band's contract was given to INO Records, another subsidiary of Epic Records, and the band's second album titled A Beautiful Glow was released. The band was dropped after lack of radio play and album sales had failed label expectations. In 2004, the band released their last recorded work titled The Listening EP, toured internationally with Delirious?, and played major festivals worldwide.
