Monday, August 8, 2011

Mondays aren't inherently bad.
They are a fresh start! A new beginning!
We just have to decide what to begin...


"Switchfoot" is a surfing term. Lead singer/songwriter Jon Foreman says "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music."

I grew up listening to Switchfoot. The San Diego band debuted in the Mid-90s with Legend of Chin and their hit song Chem 6-A immediately became an anthem for my youth group. Mandy Moore performed the Switchfoot song Only Hope for the movie Walk To Remember, Which my wife and I used in our wedding.

Switchfoot has carefully walked the line of being Christians who found success in the secular market, but uncomfortable with the way big record labels work, the band decided to walk away from a multi-album deal - comfort and stability - to become one of the most successful independent bands in the music industry. They live with their families in San Diego, produce on their terms and organize their own world tours.
