Growing up outside of New Orleans where jazz and blues are much more than music, but rather lifestyles, this young band finds themselves inundated in a pool of eclectic musicianship. Fourteen years together would bring change, maturity, and more importantly, unity to this already well knit group of guys. Ross Hebert (guitarist/lead vocalist), originally formed the band. His father being a pastor/worship leader, Ross found himself immersed in worship from a young age. The band was initially Ross Hebert, Matt Cloutier (guitars), Jason Williams (drums), and Joseph Babin (Bass Guitar). The band made appearances all along the southwest coast and worshipped their way into many notable positions including, Winner of the Shoutfest compatition in Beaumont, Tx.
The band performed a few more gigs and then found themselves following different ideas musically. Some of the guys decided to go their separate ways. After a few months of seeking what the will of God is concerning the band, Ross, Jason, and Joseph decided to make a deeper move into the area of worship.
This time bringing a new style, fronting a new name (CRAVE), and a reignited passion, these three guys set their minds and hearts on following the heart of God and bringing their music to where it belongs, in "His Presence." With their new passion enflamed, the guys set out to truly bring the heart of God concerning worship, out in song. In passing, if one finds themself stopping to take a longer listen at the powerful ballads and rocking choruses that this band brings, their prayer is that it would make you "Crave His Presence."
