Biography

The band yFriday started out in 1994 leading a local worship event called whyfriday? in Newcastle with the Youth For Christ (YFC) movement. At this event many young people attended and eventually they had to move out of their original premises and move to the Newcastle City Hall. This event gave the band the opportunity to develop their own style and sound also helping them create a song writing style with a strong and dynamic ministry focused on salvation and healing through Jesus. Though out the period of 1994-99 yFriday were mainly in the Newcastle region involved in worship events and evangelistic events in the North-East.

In 1999 everything began to happen for the band; In June with the help of Neil Costello yFriday recorded and released the Rainmaker album containing all of their own material. Later on in August yFriday were approached by Kingsway to see if they would like to join with them on a 3 year recording contract. Just a month later the band agreed to the contract and signed up on their Survivor label. Kingsway distributed the Rainmaker album throughout the UK and the world where it received a good welcome and very good reviews from magazines such as the Worship Together magazine. In November of 1999 yFriday confirmed that they had been booked to play at Spring Harvest, Easter People, Cross Rhythms Festival, Celebration 2000 and Worship Together.

Throughout 2000 yFriday played their songs at many venues and even managed to do some TV interviews. The following year (2001) yFriday released their second album Open which included tracks such as Creator, Rain and Head over Heels which they released as an EP.

    All I've heard, and purchased is their live DVD. It's called yFriday: Live - The Universal Broadcast. It's very good; collection of probably their best tracks. I think it's available on their website now.
