Pillar is comprised of Rob Beckley (vocals), Lester Estelle (drums), Noah Henson (guitar), and Kalel (bass). The band started in 1998 while attending Ft. Hays State University in northwestern Kansas. A deal with Flicker was inked in 2000 after the band’s self-released debut, Metamorphosis, impressed the label. Within months, Pillar followed things up with Above. Their first single, ”Open Your Eyes,” was popular on the college charts, earning Above nearly 60,000 in sales. Pillar also earned the Best Rock Band award at the annual Dove Awards in 2001. A year later, Pillar relocated to Tulsa, OK.
On October 27, 2012 Pillar announced that the four members from the ”peak years” (Rob Beckley, Noah Henson, Michael Kalel Wittig and Lester Estelle) would be reuniting with plans of releasing a new album, which was released on August 21st, 2015 – One Love Revolution.
