““The Effort maximizes life! If you are on the down-low, pedaling just as hard as you can, and you think you might not make it... Pop on their music. Turn up their music. Get right with their music. Make the effort! It is inspired and inspiring."…”

Frank Jenks - ListenIn.org

“…..nostalgic, yet fresh….full of choruses, melodies and hooks…..winning formula, playing on the listener’s every emotion… ”

Lyndsay Patton-Carlson - Revue

“..not surprising that Grand Rapids' The effort has done shows with Creed, The Verve Pipe, Vertical Horizon and more. The band's positive, melodic, alt-rock-edged music is crisp, dynamic and worthy of a national stage!”
