Thirty-Nine Thoughts consists of six young men that possess unique songwriting capabilities and an unusual ability and desire to connect through music that includes contemporary Christian rock, worship anthems, and worship rock genres. Their desire is ministry first, music second. The music is simply the tool.
The name Thirty-Nine Thoughts is derived from the beginning of the crucifixion scene as noted in Mark 15:15 where Jesus was flogged. The normal custom of the day was to flog the individual with forty lashes using instruments such as the cat-o-nine tails. The custom at that time was to stop one lash short of forty so as not to accidentally exceed the number forty. During each of these thirty-nine lashes, Jesus had a thought for you and for me in taking our sins upon Himself. Thirty-nine lashes… THIRTY-NINE THOUGHTS. The name was established to be a message and a ministry.
In May of 2010, the band released its initial CD “THIRTY-NINE THOUGHTS”. In January 2011, their second CD entitled “SIMPLE” was released. After the release of three new radio singles in December of 2011, their newest EP – “HEIRS”, produced in Nashville, TN was released in May of 2012. The first single “Oh Yeah” from the Heirs EP reached #16 on the Billboard Christian Rock Chart.
Formally organized in April of 2008, the band first performed live on the legendary stage of the Cactus Theater in Lubbock, Texas. The band has maintained a rigorous live concert schedule which has included the opportunity to play alongside artists such as Meredith Andrews, Josh Wilson, Jonny Diaz, Shane and Shane, Pocket Full of Rocks, Disciple, Leeland, and Family Force 5.
Along with various national Christian music festivals, the band appears regularly on over 500 radio stations worldwide and on Pandora Internet radio.
