Sons of Korah began in 1994 with three musicians who were at theological college together in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Since then Sons of Korah have recorded five Albums and have toured extensively around Australia and New Zealand, and more recently to America as well. Sons of Korah is a project-based band and though the line-up has changed over the years the basic concept remains the same. Sons of Korah have sought to revisit the age old tradition of sacred music, that is, music as a means of reflection on the word of God. But they have sought to do this in a contemporary way using a broad palette of acoustic sounds from latin and eastern to folk and acoustic rock. The Sons of Korah instrumental line-up presently includes percussion/drums, Guitars, mandolin, Resonator, Glisentar (a kind of contemporary eastern lute), acoustic bass, and piano accordian. The music is vocal driven and the compositions are always built around the biblical text.
Sons of Korah was founded by Matthew Jacoby and Matthew continues to co-ordinate the project. Matthew, who recently completed his doctorate in philosophy and theology at the University of Melbourne, teaches on the spirituality of the psalms and his concise commentary on the settings of the psalms is a feature that is woven through most concert events. In all things Sons of Korah seek to provide an impacting musical journey into the spirit and world of the psalms. The other regular touring members of the group are Jayden Lee, Rod Wilson and Mike Avery. In most cases Sons of Korah tour as a four piece band though they occasionally expand for bigger events.
Sons of Korah is also a partner of the Bible Societies in Australia and New Zealand and in most cases they tour in support of the work of the Bible Society.
