We’re delighted to bring you a conversation with Jason Roy, founding member of the popular christian band Building 429.
They are touring the country in support of their recent album titled We Won’t Be Shaken.
In fact, they’ll be in Willmar, Minnesota on Friday, July 19th performing at Sonshine Festival!
We caught up with Jason in Colorado Springs following a show there late last week. The reception on his cell phone was a little challenging but we managed to get in a good conversation.
About BUILDING 429
With the release of 2011’s Listen to the Sound, Building 429 solidified its place as one of Christian music’s best-loved and most influential bands. The hit single “Where I Belong” became an anthem for today’s believers and was Billboard Magazine’s No. 1 Christian song of 2012. The song set an impressive record as it became the first song to remain at No. 1 for 15 weeks, an unprecedented feat. Pushing forward with a renewed passion and sense of purpose, Building 429 now unleashes We Won’t Be Shaken.
Building 429 hopes the songs on We Won’t Be Shaken remind people they are more than conquerors in Christ. “We don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about who we were before Christ because the old is gone and new has come,” says Roy. ‘We wanted to talk about how David is no longer shepherd boy. Now he’s King. We didn’t want to talk about Moses the stutterer. We wanted to talk about Moses the leader of the nation. We really felt like we wanted to make a record that said, ‘Stand up! You have been called. We are God’s children. Who can stand against what God has begun?’ That’s really our perspective. If you listen to the record you find that there’s a little bit of bravado in it, but it’s bravado from a standpoint of we don’t have to always talk about how weak we are because His strength is made perfect in our weakness. That’s what this record is about. This record says, ‘Hey, let’s go! Let’s do this. God is going to use us and we’re not going to fail.”
