Known for honest songs that tell personal stories of freedom in Christ, Big Daddy Weave fans have long admired the band for their particular brand of real-life, real-person openness. With songs like “My Story,” “The Lion and the Lamb,” “Overwhelmed,” “I Know,” and “Redeemed,” Big Daddy Weave has cemented its status as one of the most beloved bands in Christian music. But while creating their latest album, When the Light Comes, the men of Big Daddy Weave, Mike Weaver (lead vocals, guitar), Jay Weaver (bass, vocals), Jeremy Redmon (guitar, vocals), Joe Shirk (saxophone, keys, vocals) and Brian Beihl (drums), found themselves working from a new and unfamiliar place. The inspirational themes and uplifting messages many find in the group’s music were desperately needed by the members themselves.
The band’s openness to go through whatever doors God opens for them has kept them going since their early days, and their spirit of dedication – to their calling and their craft – shows up in everything they do. It’s a testimony poured into When the Light Comes, an album about a deep and personal faith in Jesus, no matter the circumstances. It’s one thing to sing about trusting God in the midst of trials, but the members of Big Daddy Weave have learned what it means to truly live by faith and to trust in a God who makes all things new.
