As a member of the vocal group Nu Groove, Josh Kiser spent the mid 90's signed with the Los Angeles based record label Blitzz Records. Although their debut project never reached the shelves, he learned great deal about the music industry and what it takes to write a great song. After years of appearing at local events and venues, the group parted ways. Shortly after the split, Josh released his independently distributed debut album 'Who I Am'. Despite some sales success and airtime, his focused quickly turned in a different direction. Not long after the release of the project, Josh gave his heart to the Lord. This caused a change in his focus and desires. Before the completion of 'Who I Am', Josh had been lending his writing and producing talents to an aspiring Christian singer. As a friend and Co-worker, Andy Dalrymple was interested in what the music world had to offer him. Josh had been talking with Andy about playing out with him to promote his up-coming CD. Andy's guitar and keyboard skills, along with his vocals, were a perfect fit for Josh and his vision. Rehearsals had begun, but things were about to change. While searching for a lead guitarist, Josh and Andy's paths crossed with a young writer and producer with an ear for music. Aaron Cunningham was a self-taught guitar player who understood what it meant to create a great song. Immediately, a connection, as well as a mutual respect, formed among them. Soon after their first meeting, plans were made to start doing acoustic sets to promote Josh's CD. But one night a phone call was placed and a decision was made. Aaron called Josh and told him that he only wanted to play music that was glorifiying to God. Rather than parting ways and searching for a replacement, Josh decided that it was change that he needed to make himself. And, so, it began. As the youth music director at his church, Josh had taken an interest to a college freshmen named Josh Greaves. Josh (G.) played a few instruments but wasn't really a master of any one of them. This added to the his surprise when one night, following a youth service, Josh (K.) approached him and told him that he wants him to be his drummer. Although Josh's (G.) father was a drummer and he liked to play, he wasn't sure if he was ready for the task. But after just a few practices, he was playing with the rest of the band in front of several hundred people. And the rest is history With a love for God and a passion for music, Silent Exchange offers a refreshing sound that is sure to be widely appreciated by many to come. They, as a new band and you, as a new audience, have collectively began a journey that may never come to an end.
