Praise was started by Andy Norton as a way of sharing his ideas, facing his struggles, and coping with the loss of a loved one. As the songs developed it was clear that something truly special was coming together, and what was initially intended as a project became a full band with the addition of Mike, Chris, Colby, and Dan who all helped bring the songs to life and in January 2010 the band entered the studio and recorded the band?s d?but EP "Growing. Changing. Healing.". Musically this incredible 4 song EP draws influence from Battery, Turning Point, Civ, Gorilla Biscuits, and 7 Seconds, yet maintains a character all of it's own. Lyrically Andy focuses on reflection and personal growth, as well as encouraging people to recognize their own ability to create change in our world. Art duties for this EP were handled by the one and only Kevin Seconds.
