KAMB Artist Citizens is back with new music in 2022! The Seattle group, formerly known as Citizens and Saints, has been making music since 2011. They got their start as a church worship band. Their lineup has changed a few times over the years, but the musicians currently in the band are Zach Bolen, Brian Eichelberger, Connor Hedge, Adam Skatula, and Dan Folgado.
Citizens are known for their unique sound, influenced by indie and alternative rock. According to Zach Bolen, who sings and writes for the band, the group likes to experiment with sounds and styles not often found in “church music”: “If you really want to write songs for the church, then don’t write songs just for the church. Just write songs.” The group hopes their music is approachable and allows individuals to meet God wherever they are.
Their newest single, “Everything and More” (written by Zach Bolen, Brian Eichelberger, and Taylor Leonhardt from Mission House) is about experiencing God in new ways.
“Imaginations are crazy, but they give us something to aspire to, and in this case for me, it was expanding the walls that I’ve boxed God into. For me, this song is about my own deeper discovery of God, but I want the listener to hear it through their own perspective.”
The song is upbeat, with layered sounds, instruments, and lyrics encouraging listeners to think about God’s limitlessness. Watch the music video here:
