O-rig-i-nal (adj.) - Not derived from something else; fresh and unusual; Showing a marked departure from previous practice; new. What does it mean to be original? This meaning most certainly loses it's place in modern music. In a thick and murky swamp filled with cookie-cutter emo/punk and no-talent ballad bands, many believe that Rock itself died a horrible, merciless death. Leaving Shiloh begs to differ. With their brand of fresh, energetic, fun-induced rock, Leaving Shiloh breathes a breath of life into modern music and rises above it's muddy depths. Leaving Shiloh started with Matt Godfrey and Michael Johnson and a love for music. The group gigged around in it's early phases, but came alive with the addition of Kendrick Wallace on drums. Each individual comes from a different musical background, but all view rock the same way. Leaving Shiloh believes that rock itself is a tradition. Bands such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Queen got it right and played rock the way it should be played. Leaving Shiloh hopes to carry on that tradition. The power trio now plays with increasing frequency while their sound grows even bigger and more unbridled. Leaving Shiloh continues to reveal their "face-rocking" sets to the masses while surprising them with their mix of classic roots and untarnished originality. Do you remember when rock was powerful? When music was great and made you feel like dancing? Do you remember having fun at a concert that delivered in every single aspect and left you breathless? If so, you remember Leaving Shiloh.
