Sound Kitchen Interviews Consumed By Fire

Rock band, Consumed By Fire, recently spent two days in the Big Boy studio recording songs for their first full length album set to be released later this year. The band partnered up with producer Trent Rhodes from Severe Records and noted engineer George Tutko. We sat down with the band and asked them a few questions about their music.

What brought you together?

Three of us (Josh, Jordan, and Caleb Ward) are brothers. We grew up playing music together. We met Ervin at church several years ago and have been like brothers ever since.

In a nutshell describe your music.

Music that is created to meet the listener wherever they are, and put them in a position to receive something they need. All of this of course being put into straight up Rock & Roll, and touching ballads.

Who/ what has inspired your music?

Jesus Christ. Family. Life. Rock and Roll. That's what matters to us and what our lives and music reflect.

What makes your band different from others?

Everything we do is based on building relationships and integrity from song writing and performing, to contracts and recording. The most defining difference would have to be in the fact that we are not just doing this for ourselves.

What is the wildest ambition for your band?

That people will still listen to our songs 20+ years from now and get something out of it. When people talk about Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, artists like that, we'd love to be mentioned in that same breath. Someone once said: "Shoot for the stars, and you might just reach the clouds."

What’s playing on your ipod right now?

Oh boy, here goes... haha. Elton John, Hall & Oates, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Daughtry, John Denver, Taylor Swift, Pure Prairie League, Safetysuit, Nickelback, Kari Jobe, Hillsong United, Jason Upton, and John Mayer.... A pretty extensive & diverse list indeed. lol.

If you could have written any song, what would it be?

We have a big list, trust me, but here's each of ours.

CALEB- The Pretender by Foo Fighters

ERVIN- I know it's hard to believe, but... Love of the Road by Consumed by Fire

JORDAN- The Climb by Miley Cyrus

JOSH- Benny and the Jets by Elton John
