Music is so much more than just sound, it’s a movement, it’s an art form, and it’s a culture. It says things that cannot be communicated by words alone. My name is Stephen Nettles and I’m the lead singer/frontman of a band I call The Voiceless. Why the name The Voiceless? Well let me tell you a story. When I was younger I heard a song by Blink 182 called Adam’s Song. It was a song about a kid who everyone thought was happy, who was actually miserable inside and contemplates suicide. The effect on me was powerful, I was never able to look at those around me quite the same again. My eyes were opened up to the reality that everyone needs love and hope even if they look like they have it all together. It was music that helped understand that, and music continues to be my language. I chose the name The Voiceless to stand for that. I want to reach out to those that need to know they are not alone, that they are not the only one that feels how they feel and that there is something better in this life, that there is hope, and that there is someone who loves them no matter what may be happening in their life, and that that love is fierce and persistent. Love is the message God has given me to share, and music is the language he has given me to share it with. I also want to be a voice for the voiceless, to share their stories and to bring light to it. Whether its the hurt and sorrow that are so often a part of life, or huge issues of injustice around the world. This is a multi part process, music is a part of this, but more than anything I want this mentality and vision to shine through what me and my band do off stage and after shows. Whether its meeting with fans and just listening to them and praying with them, or talking about issues that matter and raising awareness and giving calls to action. The alternative music scene is what I call home, and music is what connects us. Recording this EP is a huge step in walking into the calling I feel is on my life. I plan on bringing the band on our first tour this summer and this EP will give us music to tour on and promote ourselves with. I want to be completely honest with you, this is not about producing a “Christian” album or even an album full of messages. The main bulk of ministry I want to do happens off stage and in conversations or in the causes we talk about and promote. This EP will contain everything from love songs to songs about friends to songs that are just about life. Please consider helping me move this project forward. Help me get out there where I can make connections and make a difference. Help me be a voice for the voiceless!
