Mike (Bass, Backing Vocals)
Dave (Drums, Backing Vocals)
HARKEN began when Dave (drums), after many years of playing in secular bands, decided to finally answer the call that God placed in his heart and start a Christian Music Ministry. Dave met Mark (guitar) who also had a similar calling to play outside of the church walls. A friendship was formed and the band began to come together.
The name HARKEN was chosen as the band name and generally means:
To listen attentively; give heed, to listen to; to hear (to listen to God).
A few members transitioned in and out before Mike (bass) joined the band. Then they began an extensive search for the lead vocals until Bill joined up. Together as a band/ministry, they have written many original songs, currently have two Demo’s recorded and will be in the studio recording their first EP in January 2015.
HARKEN has led Worship at Celebrate Recovery meetings, Cancer benefits, Fall Harvest Festivals, local Christian music festivals and secular venues and continue to book shows at any event that is in need of music with a positive message.
