The Shine Effect / Bio

The Shine Effect is an energetic 3-piece Christian rock band from Jacksboro, TN striving to answer the call God has placed on their lives to serve Him and minister to others through music. The band consists of Josh Roberts (vocals/guitar), wife Christa Roberts (drums), and brother Ben Roberts (bass/vocals). They released their first full length self-recorded album “The Life. The Hope. The Journey.” in May 2011 and since then they have played over 300 concerts with many great bands. In March of 2013, The Shine Effect released their new 6 song album "With Open Eyes" which was recorded at The Sound Lair in Knoxville, TN. Doors continue to open and The Shine Effect is now staying busier than ever serving God, playing shows, and writing new music!

The Shine Effect gets their name from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:14-16.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

The Shine Effect has taken this verse to heart and tries to truly be that shining light in a dark world. Their passion is to encourage the church and reach out to the lost through music and love, while making many new friends along the way!
