Sidewalk Prophets formed in 2003 when founding members Dave Frey and Ben McDonald were attending college at Anderson University. A roughly recorded demo was entered into an on-campus contest, which eventually led them to meetings with record executives and large-scale performances. The group completed a self-titled and independently released album in 2003, which they followed with 2007’s You Love Me Anyway EP, also independently released. They eventually signed to Word Records, which released 2009’s These Simple Truths.
”We love seeing what God is up to and continues to be up to,” says Dave. ”Through the good, the bad, and the ugly, He’s there and He’s always going to be taking care of us so we can continue to do what He’s called us to do. ”I have no idea what the next few years look like,” adds Ben, ”but I’ll be faithful and trust Him. It really is a wonderful journey.”
