The Choir

With their origins in Orange County, California, and their current incarnation based out of Nashville, Tennessee, atmospheric alt-rock outfit the Choir have undergone their fair share of changes throughout their long career. Formed in 1984 under the moniker Youth Choir, and built around the distinctive playing of guitarist and vocalist Derri Daugherty, the evocative lyrics of drummer Steve Hindalong, and the inventive, ambient post-rock flourishes of guitar player Marc Byrd, rounded out by saxophone and Lyricon player Dan Michael and bass player Tim Chandler, the band spent its early days infusing its signature blend of shoegaze, soaring alt-rock, and melodic psych-pop with a spiritual core. Prolific and critically lauded, but unable to bridge the gap (financially) between CCM and the mainstream -- successful faith-based alt-rockers such as Jars of Clay, Switchfoot, and Sixpence None the Richer cite the Choir as a significant influence -- the band considered closing up shop in 1996, shortly after relocating to Nashville and releasing its ninth studio album, Free Flying Soul. Wisely, they chose to stick it out and landed a Grammy Award nomination for 2000s independently released Flap Your Wings, which led to successful subsequent recordings like O How the Mighty Have Fallen (2005), Burning Like the Midnight Sun (2010), The Loudest Sound Ever Heard (2012), and Shadow Weaver (2014), the latter of which saw the group moving in a more secular direction. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

One of my top 5 favorite bands. So many great songs, great live and on cassette/vin y l / C D / M P 3 . . . I bought all the albums once and need to do it again in a format I can utilize... Love this band.

Pandora, you are giving short shrift to one of the finest, most influential bands America has produced. When CCM was stuck rehashing the bland, artless offerings of the late 80's, The Choir, Daniel Amos, and a few others soldiered on creating an entirely new path for young artists to follow. How about a little more research, a little more truth in the bio.

Yes, in their early days they used to be called Youth Choir. The dropped the Youth, so you could find their records easier at the record shop. The Choir is the best - in my Top ten.

Is this the same band that was called youth choir at one time

Just saw the Choir live in Dallas a few weeks ago. They are STILL awesome. Lyrically and musically one of the most original and melodic bands in the history of Rock music!

Tonight my daughter and I had the pleasure of seeing The Choir live. We were up front and center and it was such a blessing to see with my lil' one.

Ah, Chase the Kangaroo and Circle Slide are now in the mix! Thanks, Pandora!

Circle Slide is one of my all-time fav albums. The Choir is one of my comfort bands... I can always handle one of their albums when I get annoyed or disturbed with others. I guess I'll have to go buy some more of their older albums.

Great band, wrong bio.

I've been a Choir fan since the 80s with Chase the Kangaroo as my all-time favorite CD. I can't believe they mixed up the bios like this!

Hey Pandora, The Choir isn't a 60's band!
Report as inappropriate
pretty weak blurb about them, too. What about the fact that they inspired most modern alternative Christian music? First band to play at Cornerstone? Etc.?

choir is awesome! This is pretty pathetic. Wide Eyed Wonder is my favorite album of theirs

Please, please , please MORE Choir. Much more that needs to be here.

Much More Choir Please! "Wide Eye Wonder," "Circle Slide," "Chase the Kangaroo," "Kissers and Killers," "Speckled Bird,"
Report as inappropriate
Pandora needs to do a better job distinguishi n g between different bands with the same name... case in point, the Choir. "Choir Practice" is an album by the Ohio-based 60's band. I have never heard of the other band.

Please include more music from The Choir. They were nominated for a grammy for "Flap Your Wings". Their best albums are "Circle Slide", "Chase the Kangaroo" and "Speckled Bird"...

Why don't you have more of their music??? The Choir's recent 'Burning Like the Midnight Sun' is missing among a dozen other great albums!!! Come on, Pandora . . . get with it!

More Chior music please! :)

Hi Ryan - this is Dan from The Choir. For some reason, Pandora didn't want to put up Burning Like The Midnight Sun, The Choir's newest release. It was submitted, but not accepted yet. Perhaps if a number of people email them and request songs from Burning Like The Midnight Sun by The Choir, they'd reconsider it. We'd love for Pandora listeners to have access to our newest. Thanks for checking us out here on Pandora. Best to you all.

Where are the other albums? Also, they were "Youth Choir" in the late 80s. I'd like to see all of that stuff up here. They have many, many albums.

My favorite Christian Band. I have most of their music. Seen them multiple times in concert. Wish I could see them at Cornerstone 2010. They have a new album coming out this year. Yeah!

What Kirk and Pony said.

As Kirk Jordan noted, you've mixed up two different bands. The Choir I am looking for is an alt-Christia n band, led by Steve Hindalong and Derry Dougherty. You can find their site at http://www.t h e c h o i r . n e t / p a g e s / h o m e . h t m l

I think you have mixed up two different groups, both with the name of the Choir. One of these is a an alt-Chrisita i n group, the other I'm not sure.
