Stephen Petree, Worship Pastor of NorthPark Community Church in Valencia, has a vision to bring high quality national bands to the community, welcoming people throughout Santa Clarita to join NorthPark for an evening of live music.
“Cloverton coming to NorthPark on their upcoming West Coast tour helps fulfill this vision,” said Petree. “Cloverton’s music appeals to all ages.”
“The songs are driven by Lance Stafford on vocals and piano, leading the other talented musicians, including Lance’s twin brother Layne,” Petree said “Cloverton, playing a myriad of instruments, has a rich pop sound reminiscent of Third Day or Coldplay. The lyrics to their original songs appeal to young people in today’s world.”
Recently, Cloverton’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” reached over 1 million Youtube views in just weeks while being featured on CNN and The Blaze.
Cloverton propelled onto the Christian music scene in 2011 as the first ever Rock The Camp contest winners hosted by TobyMac and Camp Electric.
Soon after receiving this prestigious honor, Cloverton scored the #1 most downloaded song in the history of KLOVE radio for their first single “Take Me into the Beautiful,” which also climbed onto the Christian Billboard top 25.
The concert will take place on Nov 20 at NorthPark Church located at, 28310 Kelly Johnson Parkway.
Tickets for the event will be $5 for students with ID and $10 for adults and can be purchased on the website, Cobblestone Cottage in Valencia, or at the door.
From Cloverton’s very first breath they were taught to conform and fall in line with the specific ways and patterns of the world. They were taught how to behave, interact, and even which paths to take. But for the Manhattan, Kansas-based band, Cloverton, parting from these patterns has been a trademark of their story from the start.
Without the help of a record label, Cloverton, consisting of Lance Stafford, Layne Stafford,bass, Conner Giles, guitars, and Rains Wall,drums, started with humble beginnings as a small church worship team, now reaching the recent release of their highly anticipated first full-length album Patterns.
Cloverton continues to pave a new way for independent Christian music.
“None of us are into compromising or settling for the status quo. It’s a daily choice. To what or who am I surrendering today?” front man Lance Stafford says. “We all have a choice to either conform to the worldly patterns set before us, or to pioneer a new way. Each of us is committed to our God given passion and we’re willing to choose a different path to be faithful to His calling. We hope others will be inspired to do the same.”
