Faith Rising was established as a power-focused rock band to spread its inspirational message through a hard-charging and dynamic sound that drives a positive path. Based in Huntsville, Alabama, this band features the talents of compelling frontsman Jamie Cooper, the earth-shattering drums of Gregg Taylor, the crunching guitar of George Buffington and the thundering bass of Norman Duffell.

From power chords to powerful lyrics, Faith Rising rocks!
More than “another 3 chord praise band,” The Terry McNeal Band is composed of talented musicians whose musical gifts allow them to change lives with their fresh sound and thought-provoking message. Their unique sound and original Christian music is focused not only on youth, but also is directed to the “forgotten generation” who grew up listening to music from Pearl Jam, The Who and The Police. The musically-accomplished line-up of The Terry McNeal Band includes Terry McNeal (singer, songwriter, guitar), Bobby Hendricks (bass, vocals), Scott Owens (guitar, vocals) and Bryan Williams (drums, percussion and vocals.)
