About the ArtistTim was playing in a garage band in East Hartford, Connecticut in 1999. Seeking a second guitarist, Tim was introduced to Dan through some friends. Since then, the two have ridden the rollercoaster of making music and developing their talents over the past 9 years. During this time, they overcame many obstacles that stood in the way of them pursuing their dream of making music; the biggest being in 2004 when, for his job, Tim was relocated to Virginia.
In 2005, Dan found Christ with the help of his girlfriend Beth (now wife), and her family. In the fall of 2007, the same job that separated the two brought them back together in Connecticut. Dan’s newly-found faith gave him a renewed drive to make music; music with a message. This meshed well with Tim's ever-present beliefs and gave them both the passion to set out on this new purpose-driven musical endeavor.
The two pondered a name for their new band and came up with torndown. It was inspired from a Bible verse found in Hosea 6:1 “Come, let us return to the Lord, for He has torn us, that He may heal us; He has struck us down, and He will bind us up.” This verse proved to be reality for the two, as it was evident that God was at work in both of their lives; tearing them down, only to rebuild them stronger and renewed.
Torndown's music has both rock and pop influences, from Bethany Dillon to Mainstay, to Kutless and 12 Stones. Their chord progressions blend well with the duo's catchy vocal melodies, adding the perfect amount of seasoning to the sounds of this acoustic duo.
What sets them apart is their unique way of delivering vocals, sharing pieces of each song between the two. Created in honor of their Maker, torndown's music features the likes of striking harmonies and driving guitar riffs.
While they have ambitions of someday shaping torndown into a full rock band, they are now happy writing and performing acoustically.
With the release on their acoustic ep, torndown is prepared to reach out to all who will listen. Spotlighting the mercy, grace, and glory of God, torndown hopes to help other Christians (as well as themselves) become closer to Him through their music; as well as bring His word to those who haven’t yet heard it.
