One of the newest bands on Winter Jam 2015 Tour Spectacular is called About A Mile, comprised of three brothers – Levi, Adam and Luke. Check out a single from their self-titled debut:
About A Mile released their highly-anticipated, self-titled debut album in the summer of 2014 on Word Entertainment. About A Mile, whose name originates from the belief that Jesus carried his cross “about a mile,” may be new on the charts, but brothers Adam, Luke and Levi Klutinoty, have a chemistry and accomplished artistry that is garnering wide critical acclaim as the trio’s music and lyrics speak to members of all faiths about the suffering then triumph of a crucified and risen Christ.
After sending a message to Ian Eskelin offering what little money they had to record a song, they were shocked when he wrote back, “Save your money. I’m coming to your next show!” Shortly after that, Ian brought the band to WORD Entertainment. Tangible success has never been the group’s goal, but rather, to impact listeners and simply find contentment in their faith. That goal is aptly summarized in the band’s lead single and video “Satisfied,” which Adam wrote after nearly dying during a sickness where food reacted like poison in his system.
“It actually came after I hadn’t eaten in seven days,” Adam explains of the song that is currently a Billboard Top 25 Christian AC/CHR hit and climbing. “I was fasting from food and just drinking water during my illness, slowly realizing that as long as we have Jesus, we will always be satisfied.”
Here is what the critics are already saying about the band’s debut:
“There are no filler tracks and this is the most solid debut I’ve heard since Over and Underneath by Tenth Avenue North. If you want to experience an uplifting, soul-stirring and worshipful album, look no further than About A Mile…If you like the rock bands The Fray, Lifehouse, Rhett Walker Band and Tenth Avenue North, you need to check out About A Mile.” – NewReleaseTuesday.com
“About A Mile might be a band making their full-length debut, but their self-titled LP sounds as seasoned as any veteran release this year.” – CCM
