Comprised of guitarists Justin Forshaw and Jake Jones (both former guitarists of We As Human), and Robert Venable on drums, As We Ascend has already released their first single, “Wash Away” to radio, where it is currently climbing the Billboard Christian Rock chart.
In a unique artist-to-fan engagement process, the band launched a highly successful crowd funding campaign that allowed anyone who pledged $50 or more to become “A Label Executive” with full access to the songwriting and production stages of the process via online tools and constant communication with members of the band.
Chad Green, Sr. Creative Director of Vital Records & DMP, says “Not only am I a fan of the music of As We Ascend, I am even more a fan of these guys. Jake, Justin, and Robert are incredible men who seek to make a real difference in their genre and, ultimately, in the hearts of all who hear.
