To comfort those who mourn, the oil of joy for sadness, Consoling those in pain, and bringing beauty from the ashes
Formed in 2001 the Las Vegas natives, From the Ashes, came together because of a love of music. Something about what music can do, its ability to affect, that they knew words alone could not do. This rock quartet's music derives from their life experiences. Lead singer Cynthia Holland's lyrics are like an open diary. She draws from her life and those close to her to write songs of love, loss, rejection, and redemption. The hopeful, yet haunting quality of her voice and lyrics draws the listener into a place of silence within themselves, to let them examine their own lives, to find the light in the their darkness.
From the Ashes not only believes that their lyrics can affect the listener but they also believe that their actual heavy, chunked melodies can pierce their very soul, opening them up to every word that is being said. Each chord and riff has something to say. What? You decide.
