About Sidewalk Prophets

SIDEWALKPROPHETS2015

Their background may have made it look easy—after all, Sidewalk Prophets toured with Jeremy Camp and Audio Adrenaline on the strength of independent albums, then rode the popularity of their first Word Records release, These Simple Truths, and to a Dove Award for Best New Artist. The reality, though, like that of the seemingly placid duck whose feet are pumping furiously underwater, is something else altogether. “It’s not easy for any of us to do what God has called us to do, to go make disciples of the world,” says lead singer Dave Frey. He is referring in part to the rigors of the road, which can be extraordinarily demanding for a band as hard working as Sidewalk Prophets, but also to the challenges all vocal believers face. But twelve years on, all that work has carried their music and their collective hearts for the Lord to the upper reaches of the charts and earned the affection and respect of a growing legion of fans. Sidewalk Prophets released their very first Christmas project, entitled “Merry Christmas To You” September 24, 2013.
