Cry For Salvation

From the hometown of neighboring Franklin County, Cry for Salvation was started in 2011 when it was decided their church needed a youth band to “liven things up” on Wednesdays.  Two of the band members, began leading worship and soon, they realized there was a bigger calling to spread the Word of God by taking things outside the church and to community needing the Truth… “Cry for Salvation” was born.   Their EP “Bright Light Shine” was released in March of 2016 produced by ‘Skip’ Brown from Final Track Studios in Roanoke, Virginia. They have performed…

Exonerated

2017 Artist: Exonerated

Replenish Festival welcomes Exonerated back to the Replenish Festival stage on Saturday, July 8th, 2017!  The band joined us at our inaugural festival in  2015 and we are excited to have them back again.  🙂 In a time when so many acts sound the same, the band Exonerated, from the backwoods of Southwest Virginia, is changing the way that people view Christian Music.  Coming on to the scene in 2009, they learned quickly that they needed to find a sound that was all their own but working on capturing a brand new sound would mean trying times, switching band members, and revisiting the band’s direction….

After April

After April is a rock band based out of Greenville, NC.  The members – Josh Branch, Tyler Williams, Thorne Wiggs and Jonathan Evans – each bring influences from various styles of music as each band member’s personality is completely different.  They take their varying styles and mesh them together to create their music as heard on the debut EP, Canvas, which was recorded and produced by Grammy nominated and Dove Award Winning producer, and friend, Rusty Varenkamp. After April was started roughly 3 years ago, believe it or not, through a Craigslist posting!  They love creating music in their own ways to…

Brightwork

2017 Artist: Brightwork

You may have heard of Brightwork before as they played the Replenish Festival stage our inaugural year in 2015.  The crowd enjoyed them and they must have had a good time also as they will be playing our stage again this summer! Did you know that Brightwork booked their first show before even having a band practice?  Yes, they did!  They committed themselves not only to that first show, but a marathon of practices to prepare.  After a long summer of writing and performing, they discovered their direction had evolved from a project into a calling.   Brightwork is local to the…

Replenish 2016: a successful event!

Replenish Festival 2016 was yet another awesome year as we had a huge attendance on Saturday evening and several individuals who answered the call of Christ on their hearts and confessed to follow Him. Building 429 and JJ Weeks Band were our headlining artists. Building 429 pulled out all the stops with their stage show of lights and pyrotechnics, but Building 429 isn’t all “show”. They are genuine guys who took time to share with festival goers. The JJ Weeks Band also shared their hearts again as they returned for their second appearance at Replenish. You couldn’t ask for a…
