They grew up in the land of sweet tea and fried okra (yes, the South, with a capital “S”) and the members of Seeking Shelter each have the stories to prove it. They all have their own unique stories of triumph, loss, success, addiction and healing. But despite their different upbringings and life experiences, there’s one story they all share–redemption–and this story is the one that “over shadows” all the others.
While the band’s been sharing their stories with audiences since 2008, lead singer Jeremy Clements and guitarist Jody Clements have been sharing their stories since birth. The brothers, along with Brandon Breland (bass), and recently added member from south Florida, Mike Berchtold (drums), have molded their wide-ranging musical influences into an edgy pop-rock (CCM) style that quickly engages audiences.
Whether it’s playing high-energy youth events, intimate worship settings, or offering live street ministry, Seeking Shelter’s passion can be heard loud and clear.
Fronting for groups like “Shane & Shane” and “Me in Motion,” Seeking Shelter is finally coming into their own “front act” caliber and they’re on a mission, ready to go wherever the mission field calls. They know they’ll keep playing as long as there are people who are still “seeking.” These guys are a relevant connection between a generation seeking shelter and the God who longs to provide it.
“Saturate,” Seeking Shelter’s first full-length album, is set for release September 13th , 2011 and promises to deliver the same sincere musicianship their live audiences have loved for the last 3 years.
When they’re not on the road or playing locally, you can find them ministering in a passion they’ve all shared… “helping the homeless,” or gathered together in one of their backyards playing horseshoes, barbequing, or having the occasional craw-fish boil. Their interests include spending time with their families, fishing, motorcycles and hot rod cars. (Well, Jody anyway…)
“Acceptable” was Seeking Shelters first EP. The single was released to radio March 2010. It held 15 consecutive weeks at #1 on CHR and #3 on AC. “Acceptable” was chosen Indie song of the week by CRW magazine. It was picked up by over 600 radio stations across Australia and the USA. The band plans to tour Australia sometime in February 2012.
