Live Music by is a Catholic band from the UK. Once a faraway dream, the band officially became a reality in the year 2022. The winter of 2011 brought along with it a weekend of music training called the Talent Gallery organised by the Jesus Youth movement in the UK which encouraged us to use our talents for the movement and nurture it. Supporting the movement with music for retreats, conferences and outreach events in the UK, we embarked on an exciting journey where we started learning new skills, composing and writing songs, ministering through music and growing together as a music ministry. It brought us great joy to use music with its ability to unite, heal and worship and help people experience the love of the Father.

Gradually the ministry began to evolve and along with it grew our dreams of becoming a band, committed to evangelise through music. We aspire to be people who are not afraid to glorify Christ and sing of his goodness. We want to be a city on a hill and trumpet his strength and mercy.

We know our stories are familiar stories, and they’ve become our songs – songs that we sing together of lives that have been redeemed and souls that have been saved by a God who faithfully looks for his lost sheep and doesn’t ever give up on it. And so, we became, a band of musicians who are grateful to be found by their saviour, daily.
