EDITORS’ NOTES

The Knoxville, Tenn.–based Will Reagan & United Pursuit see themselves as more of a family than a band. They keep their music eclectic and play a plethora of genres, with a thread of Christian worship sewing it all together. Their artist bio says the band "defies today’s worship genre norms, always reaching for more.” This is evident right from the opening tune from their 2012 album Endless Years. “Give Me a Song” is a moody piano ballad trimmed with anthemic choruses and orchestral accompaniment, playing like something on par with early Coldplay recordings. “Commission” plays with the cool indie rock trimmings and rhythmic bombast, like a latter-day Manic Street Preachers song. And in “Take Back,” the triumphant melodies recall those from Keane’s 2006 album Under the Iron Sea, as Reagan’s doubled vocals soar over dramatic minor chords pounded on a piano as sleek electric guitar effects chime alongside a versatile rhythm section. Reagan and United Pursuit strip down the following “Now I’m Closer” to create a handsome folk-based gem.

About Will Reagan & United Pursuit

Will Reagan is a Christian singer/songwriter based in Knoxville, Tennessee. With his quiet acoustic guitar picking and plaintive voice, his worship songs are largely folk-driven. In 2006, he and several other like-minded songwriters and players formed a musical collective called United Pursuit. The group members perform each other's songs and release independent albums under the collective's umbrella. Reagan released his solo debut, Beginning to Love You, in 2006 followed by 2009's In the Night Season, which was credited to Will Reagan & United Pursuit. His next two albums, Live at the Banks House (2010) and Endless Years (2012), were also made with the collective. The group's second live album, 2015's Simple Gospel, earned a high spot on Billboard's Christian chart, and Tell All My Friends followed in early 2017. ~ Timothy Monger
