Mike (Founder, Lead Guitar, Arranger, Composer)
Loyal To One was formed to give glory, honor and praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have combined various styles of Christian music to minister the message of salvation and hope. Our lyrics are based on personal experiences in which, God has intervened and has proven that regardless of our imperfections, He remains faithful and will continue to love us in spite of ourselves. This has inspired us to use our talent to compose songs to share the unconditional love of God to others that they may know that there is one true God who can give peace and joy to our hearts and pacify our souls. We are Loyal To One, Jesus Christ, and we exist only to serve Him. As musicians we are messengers of His love and wisdom through our music.
Kevin (Bass Guitar, Manager/Executive Producer)
I wanted to be part of a music ministry that was doing something different. To be part of something more universal, playing Christian music that can touch many ethnic groups. We (the church) are separated by denomination, race, class, and music. If we are to truly be the "Body of Christ" we must break down the barriers that divide us. The common denominator we all have is JESUS. Our desire, is to have a band that can connect to and minister cross-culturally. When we get to heaven, we won't be divided. We all will be singing Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God almighty together, so we might as well get together now! I am so excited about what God is doing through us!
Loyal To One has given me the opportunity to branch out and minister the gospel of Jesus Christ in a very different way from where I started. I love that we are writing and recording our own music and songs. I am awed at what God has done through us as we bring our individual gifts together for one purpose; spreading the message of Christ by giving hope, encouragement and the assurance of God’s love to all that hear us. Being with my group has allowed a freedom to minister what God as placed in my heart. It’s like God pours his message into us and says "tell this to my people". Witnessing the way our music is touching lives is humbling, but assures us that we have been called to this great work. I am truly blessed to work with such a very talented group of believers!
Kevin "KB" (Keyboard, Vocal Coordinator)
I consider Loyal To One to be a living example of Matthew 6:20 - "Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." It’s so easy to get caught up in being seen or sounding good, but here our talents are subject to ministry, not the other way around. I am grateful to be a part of a group where the members have a true heart to worship.
I believe that by no means is any one person is perfect, but we find our worth through Jesus Christ. I've always been passionate about music, but it wasn't until I gave God all the glory that I then realized it is not by my own strength, but by God's alone. I am blessed to a part of a band that puts God first throughout everything. I look forward to going out into the world and sharing God's love for everyone through praise and worship.
I am honored and feel blessed to be a part of music ministry. Music is an incredible gift having the ability to invoke emotions and memories upon hearing a few notes. A song can make you feel comforted, happy, and even at peace; while other times make you feel convicted to your core. With this close connection to our souls, surely this gift from God was designed to worship our Creator. I am truly humbled to share this gift with the world alongside a talented group of believers.
Arnett (Recording Engineer)
Loyal To One is a great band that stands on the right principles. I was originally into audio engineering and producing before I was saved and born again. After giving my life to Christ, my interest in worldly music vanished. With that, my audio engineering hobby started to fade drastically. Then I crossed paths with Kevin, the bass player and father of my fiancee (now my wife), who afterwards found out I was an audio engineer and asked if I would be interested in helping LTO record and mix their music. I soon found myself a part of this great blessing in the Body of Christ. Not only am I able to continue my passion, but also have been given the opportunity to participate in an excellent ministry. As an audio engineer, LTO isn’t just a great Christian band to record and mix, but also is a band with a great message that I stand by and am more than willing to invest time and energy into.
