aaron greer band's latest release, Agents Of Change, is a collection of modern rock worship-based songs that lift up the name of God through Jesus Christ. It also places emphasis on the theme that we, as God's people, need to be agents in impacting and changing our society in the name, and love, of Jesus.

Tip of your tongue familiar, yet distinctive. That was my first though upon hearing Agents of Change, the national debut of Pittsburgh trio the Aaron Greer Band. Imagine if you were take the songwriting sensibilities of Mercy Me and Shawn McDonald, combine it with the sound of Dashboard Confessional flavored with the instrumental eclecticism of Mae and put Michael Sweet's soaring intonation, assuaged by Chris Tomlin's warm expressiveness, behind the mic and you'd have something of an idea of what this band offers.
Aaron Greer Band's musical milieu falls squarely within the genre defined by modern worship bands like the David Crowder Band, Delirious?, etc. Their music is paradoxical in that it is an arena-filling sound yet invites the listener to partake in intimate worship. The band successfully juxtaposes soulful lyrics that convey the heart of their Mission transparently with up-beat, inventive music that uplifts the listener without pandering to stale pop sensibilities.
Some stand out track, you ask? There's the toe-tapping beat of the disc's opener: "May Your Glory Move," the hypnotically rhythmic "Air," the energetic and declarative anthem "I Will Follow," and the simple and wistful "One Man."
The three guys, two with guitars and one with a drum kit, on a singular Mission create songs that leave an indelible imprint on the musical landscape. Fans of bands as diverse as Fallout Boy, Ruth, Fee, Robbie Seay Band, Casting Crowns, Re:Zound, and Foolish Things will find something to whet their musical palate with Aaron Greer Band's Agents of Change.

This band is awesome. They have great music. :)
I love to listen to them because they are different from anyone else. And I love bands that are different because after a while everybody starts to sound the same. :)
