Citizens & Saints Biography
Citizens & Saints is an Alternative Gospel band from Seattle, WA. In 2011 the band formed at their home church of mostly college students just blocks from the University of Washington. Each week the walls of the 100 year old church building they gathered in seemed to disappear as the sounds of God’s people shouting praises echoed throughout the streets of the U-District. The hymn arrangements (In Tenderness, How Great Thou Art, Nothing But The Blood) and gospel-centered original songs (Made Alive, Oh God, You Brought Me Back To Life) that the band has gained global influence through, all find their origins back there in that little old church. What best defines the heart beat of the band is the Gospel. Citizens & Saints hope is that through singing the gospel, all who hear it would know how great the love of God is for them through Jesus.
