Record Label: None
Tim: Flood the Stone is a play off of the home towns in which the band originated from. Springside, and Ebenezer Saskatchewan. Springside prompted the water theme and Ebenezer meaning stone of the help. Thus, Flood the Stone was born. Over time the name has taken on different meanings to different people. Honestly, we enjoy hearing all the interpretations that fans come up with.
Tim: Like any growing organization/ministry, change is normal. Bandmates have shifted over the last 4 years as the stages have grown. It launched as a 4-piece, as represented in our music video "Made For You," then toured as a 3-piece for a year and a half. Last year, as we prepped for a whole new record and sound, we went back to a 4-piece when we added our new frontman Steven Fazakerley.
Tim: Lucky enough, our bass player happens to be cousins with Phil. Phil used to rock him to sleep as a baby in the afternoon New Zealand sun while singing "Entertaining Angels" as a fresh oceanic wind whispered through his long blonde locks. But seriously, he is family but apart form that, he was the executive producer on When the World's On Fire.
Tim: The summer of 2015 looks very exciting for us as we are sharing venues with For King and Country, Switchfoot, Peter Furler, We As Human, and more.
Tim: The song was written in a way to display God's heart toward people finding their way. Each of us have had family, friends and even ourselves that deal with struggling through life's challenges. The four of us have personally found that Jesus was always for us in the midst of our questioning and struggles. (Romans 5:8) Just like the prodigal son, we trip over many things while in the dark, but no matter what, true love always leaves the light on for our moment of coming back home.
Tim: At this stage of the game being an independent band does pay more, but, honestly it's super exhausting doing everything ourselves. We are open to whatever option builds the Kingdom of God the most in His timing.
Tim: Each of us have our personal favorites that inspire us musically. It's a variety of U2, Our Lady Peace to Imagine Dragons and Royal Tailor. That's a hard question to answer cause we are inspired by many artists across stylistic boundaries. Outside of music, as a band, we've got to give ultimate credit to God. His hand has played a part in every good thing that has impacted our lives worth writing about or living for.
Tim: As a band, we are always learning the lesson of being teachable, trusting and patient. We will never "arrive" in music or in life, and always have room to grow. There's always someone better than you at what you do so there's never a reason to have a big head. Stepping out in faith with this band is always a daily discipline. It's one thing when you're touring as a single guy, but we are all married with kids that like to eat actual food. Thus the tension of chasing a God sized dream and being a provider demands the need for practicing patience. We are taking on the impossible. But lucky for us, if He has called us, He has also equipped us. Basically, now more than ever exemplifying the fruit of the spirit is a must in our endeavors. We can't afford not to live it out or Flood the Stone won't work nor be effective.
