Switchfoot

After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003's The Beautiful Letdown, a double-platinum album that straddled the line between sacred and secular rock music. Years before Switchfoot's commercial breakthrough, though, the group struggled to make a dent in the San Diego area, where singer/guitarist Jonathan Foreman, bassist Tim Foreman, and drummer Chad Butler began playing together in 1996. The lineup logged several shows under its original name, Chin Up, before adopting the Switchfoot moniker and attracting the attention of singer/songwriter Charlie Peacock. Although Peacock signed the band to his own label, Re:Think, Switchfoot were moved over to the roster of Sparrow Records following Sparrow's acquisition of the smaller label.

Now signed to one of the largest Christian labels in the country, Switchfoot temporarily tabled their plans to reach out to a broader audience. Their first two albums, The Legend of Chin and New Way to Be Human, were marketed almost exclusively toward Christian listeners, who took an immediate shine to the band's music. Keyboardist Jerome Fontamillas joined the band for 2000's Learning to Breathe, which found Switchfoot taking more steps toward a mainstream alt-rock sound. Breathe became a transitional record for the group, earning a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Gospel Album and selling over 500,000 copies, thus achieving gold status. Its success, coupled with the band's presence on the hit soundtrack to the 2002 film A Walk to Remember, set Switchfoot up for a healthy major-label run.

The Beautiful Letdown, Switchfoot's debut album for Columbia Records, was issued during the spring of 2003. It represented the quartet's full evolution from a Christian group to a mainstream rock act, eventually earning double platinum sales and producing two Top 20 hits: "Dare You to Move" and "Meant to Live." Switchfoot returned in September 2005 with their fifth album, Nothing Is Sound, which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. Nothing Is Sound went gold, sparked another radio hit in "Stars," and was the first Switchfoot recording to include the work of additional guitarist Andrew Shirley (formerly a member of the contemporary Christian group All Together Separate), who'd been a touring member of Switchfoot since 2003. Wasting little time, the band returned to the studio with veteran U.K. producer Tim Palmer to begin work on its sixth album, one that found the guys broadening their musical scope. The resulting Oh! Gravity. appeared at the tail end of 2006.

Oh! Gravity. turned out to be Switchfoot's last album for a major label. Less than a year after its release, Jon Foreman announced the band's decision to leave Columbia Records and form its own label, lowercase people records. Columbia pulled together some of the band's greatest hits for a last-minute compilation, The Best Yet, while the band set to work on another record. At the same time, Foreman began releasing a string of solo EPs, each of them named after a specific season. He also formed Fiction Family, a folk-pop side project, with Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins. Fiction Family's self-titled debut was released in January 2009, followed one month later by another Switchfoot album, Hello Hurricane, which won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album. Several months after the band's Grammy win, Switchfoot returned with Vice Verses, an album that highlighted the band's rhythm section. During 2013, while touring in support of Vice Verses, Switchfoot made a film documenting the band's lifelong love of surfing. Their next album, entitled Fading West, landed in January 2014. It saw the band freed from the typical constraints of the three-minute pop song, experimenting with unusual instruments and musical textures. ~ Jason Ankeny & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. The nearest Friday you will be kissed by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. If you don't post this on 5 of your songs within the next 143 minutes you will die in 2 days. When you are done your lover's name will appear on your screen

I may be a senior citizen, but I follow all genres looking for the well-crafted songs that truly express the emotions that I believe the Creator God brings. I am sitting & meditating over the tender lyrics spoken with such yearning in your song, "Always". The music & instruments hold you gently before the very thrown of God where our Lord intercedes constantly on our behalf. Blessings to you & yours; also to those who mix & produce your sound in the studio. Continue to share regarding the deeper
