If more bands were free of corporate-driven agendas, bands like Green River Ordinance would be the norm of the popular music landscape instead of the exception. This five-piece band from Texas more than ably express themselves through keen lyrics and tuneful alternative music seasoned with a touch of southwestern grit & character. Though not quite as musically eclectic as fellow Texans and peers, David Crowder Band, nor as strongly regionally influenced as fellow Southerners Needtobreathe, comparisons can be drawn.

GRO puts to superb use their God-bequeathed gifts and talents, producing acutely melodic songs that are unassuming yet, at the same time, reflective insights on life’s breadth and depth. Their lyrics contain a clever blend of the sanguine compunction of Sanctus Real balanced with a touch of the good-natured yearning in much of Jason Mraz's writing. Thematically, Under Fire serves to remind listeners that there is a place of reassuring solace and for dogged hope & unflinching faith in the midst of this battle (cf. Eph. 6) we call life.

Reminiscent of Rush of Fools, Tenth Avenue North, Train, and Unhindered; fans of By the Tree, Leeland and Lifehouse should give this group of dedicated and principled young men a listen. Check out their website TheHopeGros.com and ally yourself with GRO and their commendable mission.
