This weekend, prepare yourself for a federal mandated loss of sleep.
Daylight Savings Time begins Saturday night.
You SPRING forward!
Which sounds so optimistic, but really means you get an hour LESS sleep...

Jeff Chandler

For Jeff Chandler, music is a legacy. From early childhood his parents exposed him to a wide variety of musical influences ranging from Bill Gaither to the Beatles. He came up in the shadow of his father, Scott Chandler, a drummer who played at church and in a touring band.

His musical debut, as humble as it was, came at 16 years old when one of his pastors cast him for the lead shepherd-boy role in the annual Christmas play. He still points to that experience as the defining moment that music became his life.

Over the last decade, he has played venues ranging from coffee shops to coliseums and has had the honor of sharing the stage with Michael English, Rascal Flatts, David Crowder, Steve Fee, Leeland and Grammy award winning artist, Casting Crowns.

Country, gospel, and epic rock'n'roll flavors bring a unique taste to those who sample his work. His songs are primarily born out of relationships: his family, friends and those he serves as a spiritual leader.

"I feel like the purpose for my music is to bring healing and direction to broken hearts. I honestly feel that's what my life is about." - Jeff Chandler

Fact: Casting Crowns recorded Chandler's song I Know You're There on their acclaimed The Altar and the Door album.

Album: I Know You're There
