Getting 'Real' with Christian music

Fans of contemporary Christian music will be treated to an evening of just that Oct. 23 at the Simon J. Graber Complex in Odon when Sanctus Real, Citizen Way, The Neverclaim and Everfound take the stage at 7 p.m.

"Sanctus Real has a pretty wide appeal," said Chris Wagler, administrator of the Simon J. Graber Complex. "They are very popular in contemporary Christian music right now."

Sanctus Real started 16 years ago in the basement of guitarist Chris Rohman's parent's house and since then the group has never looked back or wavered with the type of music they produce.

Their newest release "Run" is the sixth studio album for the group whose popular songs include "Lead Me," "Beautiful Day" (cover of the U2 song), "Everything About You," "The Fight Song" and "Forgiven."

The group consists of Matt Hammitt (vocals), Rohman (guitar), Mark Graalman (drums), Pete Provost (guitar and keys), and Dan Gartley (bass).

Citizen Way consists of two groups of brothers; Josh and Ben Calhoun and David and Ben Blascoe. The foursome, which has a strong background in ministry and a passion for music, formed in 2004. Their debut album "Love is the Evidence" was released in April. The first single from Citizen Way "Should've Been Me" peaked at number 5 on the Christian AC radio.

The Neverclaim is made up of Jeremiah Carlson, Matthew Warren, Chuck Hill, Jared Key, Josh Anderson and Mitchell Maldonado. The band's album consists of 10 songs that are described by the group's website as being " fresh yet familiar and are performed with sincerity comparable to an artist like Bruce Springsteen."

Four brothers who are Russian immigrants make up Everfound. Nikita, Ruslan, Yan and Illarion Odnoralov came to the United States as young children when their parents left the communist-run country and now their music is heard all over the world. Prior to coming to the U.S. the brothers were exposed to Christian radio stations that were illegally transmitted into communist areas.
