The Still Point Sound The sounds come from Still Point, but the roots branch out to tap rock and country, pop and bluegrass, jazz and folk genres. Members of the band span a wide array of musical backgrounds. One holds a post graduate music degree, while another is self taught. One is a former rock musician, and another played in the military band during his service in the U.S. armed forces. This unlikely combination of musicians and singers stews and cooks until it spins out eclectic concoctions, with each song taking on a life of it's own. The sounds range from a rocking, bluesy "Love We Need" to the haunting "Gloria" (both from the CD "Witnesses") to the bluegrass/gospel feel of "Church" (from the CD "Praise Him"). The performances have a very real quality that reaches out to the listener. The Still Point Story The band came together as a group of volunteers to serve as the musical component in a weekly contemporary worship service. After compiling a repertoire of standard contemporary Christian music, they began to look for ways to stretch. They brought in relevant secular material, as well as unique arrangements of lesser known Christian and gospel pieces. In 2005, they began to introduce original songs in the services. The congregation and the clergy were very supportive, and the connections between the band and this community of faith grew. The song "Let It Be Known" (from the CD "Witnesses") was composed for the baptism of a baby. That child was the first born to a couple who are vocalists in Still Point. The song was first performed at that baptismal service. It has since become a favorite of the congregation, and has been used as the baptismal response both in the contemporary and traditional services. The band has received requests ranging from a high school student wanting the sheet music for "My Brother's Keeper" (from the CD "Praise Him") for a talent show performance to a mother wanting "A Reply from Corinth" (from the CD "Praise Him") to be played at her daughter's wedding. The next step came when the band took to the studio to record the collection of songs for the CD "Praise Him". This was followed by the production of the CD "Witnesses".
