Notable: The band brought in string instruments -- a violin and a cello -- while recording its first record, Orphan Found.

Quotable: Shane Lankford on faith: "All six of us are strong in our Christian beliefs, but we're not a Christian band. Music has lost the hope, and we want to bring that back. But we don't preach from the stage or anything. We're there to be the best musicians we can be."
