Jade Hanson: Joel and I used to have a different band every weekend (Joel lived with me in '88 here in Nashville) and "bp" was one of the names we used, the original name for the band was brother sponge.
Jade: I toured with PFR for 2 years and after every show people would come up to and ask me if I had my own band. After about 2000th time I thought that maybe God was talking to me and that I should pursue it!
Jade: We like to think of ourselves as modern rock with a dash of Monty Python. We didn't pick our sound, persay, it just seemed to happen, kinda like a bad rash!
Jade: Jeff & I grew up in the "Big 80s" so a lot of that stuff plus all the cool classic stuff, Jason was more into Kansas, Rush and the other more artrock bands.
Jade: Absolutely, in order to fulfill the Great Commission we have to get to the unsaved, the mainstream market is almost the only way!
Jade: LIFE!!! Just existing gives us plenty of inspiration. We hope that everyone (through the songs) understands the joy we feel in having Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior through thick and thin.
Jade:Oooohhhh yeaaaaaaa! If our first picnic was in a public park, lets just say that the next one will be on a extreme sports expedition, but we won't forget the Gray Poupon.
Jade: It is a colorful description of Heaven.
Jade: It is the one nonsense song on our album, it is about our practice room at our friends house (the Lyons) and about all the people that would visit during practice!
Jade: Mr Good Intentions is about myself, I have an unfortunate gift for not accomplishing what I set out to do, in all areas of my life!! It is one of my biggest struggles (your prayers would be appreciated) and an ongoing battle. I wrote the song from the perspective of Mr. Good Intentions being my alter ego, which often times is how it feels.
Jade: VERY!!!!!!!! It is very difficult to support a ministry and if Christian bands are going to have a platform in which to reach the unsaved, the body of Christ needs to help support it!!!
Jade: Wow tough question, in my case, at this time, I would have to say Braveheart or anything with great special effects! Jeff likes comedies and Jason likes cerebral movies.
Jade: The parrot skit!!!!
Jade: Some. It is hard though, most CHR [Christian Hit Radio] stations have way too broad a format for us. Hearing Skillet then 4him is too much for me!!
Jade: Cling tenaciously to Christ, it's too easy to be sucked into today's world and leave your faith on the back burner!
