Jeremy King: The name Daylight was inspired by 1 Thessalonians 5:5-11 where it starts by saying You are all children of the light and children of the day. These verses sum up a lot of the message that we hope to proclaim through our songs. In the opening track from We are Weak//He Is Strong, we sing "Children of the light flee the things of darkness and follow Christ." That's our prayer.
Jeremy: We all like Leeland. we love their sound and really appreciate the heart that comes through in their lyrics. We also enjoy Phil Wickham, Matt Redman, Gungor, John Mark McMillan and Chris Tomlin. (to name a few)
Jeremy: Ephesians 5:8-11
Jeremy: One summer we were leading worship at a camp near Vancouver BC. I think we led 13-14 chapels in 1 week and so my voice was getting tired, but during the Thursday morning chapel the speaker said this phrase while speaking: "the curtain has been torn down" and something jumped in my spirit. I just knew I needed to immediately write a song declaring the victory of the cross. There were a ton of hurting and broken teens at camp that week and I remember knowing that God was just wanting to speak truths about His healing power over the campers through this song.
Jeremy: Between five of us, we go to four different churches and we are all really involved at our local churches, but we usually play at 2-3 events per month (depending on the month). Some seasons we do more than others as opportunities come up.
Jeremy: Yeah, they all came afterward
Jeremy: Personally, I think "Our Rock" is my favourite song from the album. It stands out to me because it was a song that I wrote out of a place of brokenness. I wrote it after a friend encouraged me with a few verses found in Hosea 6. The song has been the cry of my heart over this last year. "Let us press on to know the Lord"
Jeremy: Yeah, we would love to if it was the right record label and contract. We are all really involved with youth and young adults at our local churches and so it would be hard to be gone a lot of the time but if someone was excited to get behind our vision than we would love to have that support. It's our hope to continue encouraging the body of Christ through writing and playing music. The more people reached the better. (Since we've released our album on noise trade, I've been reminded again the reason why I'm doing this. 5,720 people own the album now and we've only played at like 4 events this summer. It's a cool thing knowing God is using our music to encourage a ton of people. Hearing feedback has also encouraged me to keep doing this...)
Jeremy: Most recently, God has been reminding me that His kingdom is an actual reality. It's becoming my prayer more and more that God's kingdom would come in our midst. God's kingdom is one of love, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. It's a kingdom where people can actually live free.
