Walking the Horizon is a family of friends with a strong bond of powerful music and powerful beliefs. First formed in 2003, Walking the Horizon began as "Sound of Faith," a house band for a contemporary worship service in Concord, NC but since then has evolved as the members discovered together that their hearts are most open as they share their message through powerful vocal harmonies, rock guitars and a tight rhythm section.
In 2009, Sound of Faith released their first full-length musical project, Rescue Me, which is available through numerous outlets including Amazon.com, iTunes, Napster and CDBaby. It contains a spectrum of styles from heavy rock with soaring female vocals and harmonies to touching inspirational ballads. In late 2010, Sound of Faith began writing a lot of new material with the current lineup to be used in a future project projected for release in 2013, under the new name, "Walking the Horizon." The group decided to change the name, because after 10 years, the focus of the band is to continue to encourage followers of Christ, but also reach out beyond listeners that are already believers, to share the message and music with people who may not know hope or love yet, but need it.
When performing live, Walking the Horizon pulls from that extensive repertoire of original songs off Rescue Me and the forthcoming project and also mixes in covers from female-fronted bands such as BarlowGirl, SuperChic(k), Plumb and Flyleaf. Other rock or blues covers that may be heard at a Walking the Horizon show are from bands like Shinedown and Skillet. Rather than heavily push their message or beliefs during their performance, they prefer to encourage listeners to get the message from the music, and let the message reach people as it finds them. Their belief is that through the entertainment, the message will filter through to those who most need to hear it. Walking the Horizon is a band of strong Christian believers, and as such, they do welcome and even encourage those who have questions about the song lyrics, their beliefs, or Christianity in general.
