Cry For Salvation


Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Banjo, Mandolin, Accordion.


Starting in 2011 as a small local youth group band, Matt and Christian led worship once a week at their church in Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. They soon came to realize that there was a bigger calling to spread the word of God and the “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 live at many different locations, such as Walmart for Children’s Miracle Network, Sweet Frog for Vitalize Church, Auto Zone for We Care, and many churches. Cry for Salvation has also shared the stage with several acts, such as DENS, Exonerated, Joon D, The Return, Relinquish, and more. Their hope and prayer is that people listen to their music and not only enjoy it but see that Jesus can take broken and make us into something beautiful. Our calling is not to fill our selves full of Christ and then stop when we are full. Our calling is to overflow with Christ’s love and compassion, to be a disciple, to change the world one song at a time!
