Faith on the Line
Column 5 began in 1999 when founding member Blake Crawford was unable to find enough Christian music in the style he enjoyed (Electronic-Rock/Pop), so he decided to create his own. Being a Sci-Fi fan, and having always liked music that told stories, he began by developing the Column 5 futuristic background story to use as a base for the band's stories. After 18 months writing the lyrics, Blake was ready for the next phase. Early 2001, Blake spent 6 months building a recording studio in his home, then placed ads at all the local churches for a keyboardist. Micah Banes signed on in July 2001, and they spent the next year composing the songs for the first CD. Once the composing was completed, they were ready for the next phase. Early 2002 they began the search for a vocalist, adding Darrin Davis to the band in April 2002. After recording the vocal tracks they released their debut CD, 'Faith On the Line' in December, 2002. Column 5's debut CD 'Faith On The Line' tells the story of a Military Chaplain in the year 2079. Column 5's CD 'Share', contains 3 new songs + alt. Versions of the first 7 songs from the 'Faith On The Line' Project.
