Common Children have been grabbing attention since their debut, earth shattering performance at the 1995 Cornerstone Festival. That performance led to a recording contract with Tattoo Records (Provident), where the band released two CD's, Skywire (1996) and Delicate Fade (1998). Both Skywire and Delicate Fade solidified the band as Christian and college radio favorites with # 1 songs such as "Eyes Of God", "So Dream," "Wishing well" and "Drought." Several tours across the U.S. had Common Children share the stage with The Choir, Bleach, Grammatrain and Tragedy Ann. A popular favorite on college radio, Common Children has also performed with Tonic and Cheap Trick and performed at events such as ESPN Extreme Sports. Marc Byrd (vocals/guitar) has co-produced the second studio recording for City On A Hill (Essential) and a live recording for worship artist Paul Baloche (Integrity). A co-producer for the first City On A Hill, Marc was the songwriter for the albums debut single "God Of Wonders," which was recently nomimated at the Dove Awards for Song Of The Year and earned him an additional nomination for Songwriter of the Year. An in demand songwriter and Producer, Marc Byrd has written songs for Third Day, Jennifer Knapp, Sonic Flood, Nichole Nordeman and True Vibe.
