Happy Monday friends and fam!
This Sunday I had the honor of witnessing the band practicing with long time friend and former bandmate Stan Chong. Along with "Voices", I got to see some older material such as "Be the Fire" and "We Divide" It made me quite excited to see the guys in high spirits and envious I haven't got to see more of what these four guys can accomplish together.
Stan and Darien both grew up in NOVA; former roommates and the first two original members of Taking Saturn. Darien Anthony began working on his solo music career which was then named Darien. While he collaborated with Stan he was working towards playing at The Cornerstone Festival among the likes of Anberlin. With drums and vocals/guitar they then found Danny Haddad and Bou Lithisack to join them. Taking Saturn was eventually born in 2008 and created a small fan base up the East Coast. This went on for a few years and then eventually fizzled when the guys parted ways for personal reasons.
Now that Darien, Danny and Bou are back as Taking Saturn they are happy to be working with Stan again to create their first track "Voices"; first of many tracks for their new album.
Here are some highlights from last night's practice!
Please continue to follow these guys on their amazing musical journey spreading a positive message for a fallen world. Until next week, stay warm and cozy NOVA.
