All Things New is a Christian Americana quartet from Orlando, Florida looking to meld the new folk movement with Christian music as a new, fresh, and popular medium to connect with faith-based audiences who are perhaps more accustomed to soft rock and pop music. Much of the music from the American folk tradition is rooted in Christian themes, but All Things New is using the new folk style to sing about more contemporary Christian ideals.
Singer Garett Hornbuckle, drummer Luke Wycuff, bassist Joshua Schou, and guitarist Jeff Stein are all in their twenties, but they claim that rough childhoods and growing up in broken homes helps inform the difficulties they sing about in their music, as well as the healing power of their faith. Music was a key element of spreading that faith for the group, as the band blossomed out of a previous six-piece they had been involved in within church organizations.
The band’s self-titled debut album was released on BEC records last spring, and the foursome has been touring in support of it since then. In a continuation of those shows, right now, All Things New are set to play a variety of Christian camps and events through the beginning of August.
