About Fire From The Gods

Fire From The Gods, with a name inspired by the profound tales of Greek mythology, is a telling origin story for this equally intense band from Austin, Texas. The six-piece draws inspiration from the sounds and stories that exist outside of their own personal experiences, vocalist AJ Channer says, “We all come from very diverse backgrounds and have seen our own trials and tribulations. We draw inspiration from life’s experiences”. AJ himself, from Jamaican descent and calling both London and New York home, is a man inspired by the world. His broad musical influences (ranging from punk, ska, gospel and reggae) set this band apart from an otherwise saturated artistic scene of Austin.

AJ resides in New York while the rest of the band is in Texas, and it’s this distance that drives the band’s creativity. Since getting together happens less often, the times they are together are fully focused, “When we are in the studio, we create some very interesting music”. Their unique situation gives Fire From The Gods a work ethic which is all their own. When they are able to get together, all six members leave their individual mark on the outcome of the band’s sonic delivery. This ability to work together and utilize so many sources of creative expression leads to the band’s unique and powerful sound.
Fire From The God’s ability to draw inspiration from experiences and create a sound and message that unifies people on a global scale is successfully realized in their music. The sky is the limit for this diverse musical powerhouse, and they show all the signs that their music will reach audiences all over the world.

Fire From The Gods Is: vocalists- AJ Channer and Chris Mardis, guitarists Jameson Teat and Drew Walker, bassist Bonner Baker and drummer Richard Wicander.
