Electric Bass Guitar
Based in the American heartland, far from New York or L.A., Leroy and Dewayne Williams have emerged as one of the most engaging and ingenious groups in popular music. Combining amazing musicianship with otherworldly vocal talent, they have single-handedly forever changed the playing field, and shattered all limitations previously placed on Christian artists. Leroy and Dewayne Williams employ a revolutionary and controversial musical philosophy, pioneering the concept of "Artist as Minister".
"The lord has gifted me to operate as a Pastor/teacher, as well as a singer and songwriter. While some ministers have a hard time seeing how songs can save or heal, reserving these expressions for traditional preaching, I see an inseparable bond between my ministry as a speaker, and my ministry as an artist. Both means of expression require me to allow God to channel his message through me, when I am preparing a message and when I am writing a song. It is he that is the true messenger, and it is he that saves and heals; he reserves the authority to do either through whichever medium he chooses." Pastor Leroy Williams
"Traditionally Gospel artists have viewed the music behind their songs as a vehicle on which their true message is carried, I've always viewed it as an integral part of the message, or as a means of communication within itself. For me, music is a language in the same since that English is a language, it allows me to express concepts and ideas that I may not be articulate enough to express with words" Dewayne Williams
