Song Title: All Creation Will Hear

Avory is comprised of a core group of three siblings out of Yakima, WA. For them, this band is meant for more than creating music or performing a show, It’s about helping people come into lasting God experiences. They do this through authentic worship, inspiring leadership and creative music. They believe that nothing is more convincing then a life that authentically worships God. Even more than that, Avory knows the importance of leadership, integrity, and honoring God even when no one is looking. They strive for creativity and excellence in all they do and their recent album, Much From Little, is a testament to that fact. 

This debut album by Avory captures a variety of soundscapes. The songwriters Kylon and Lachelle Gienger bring different colors to the album with their unique writing styles. With the help of a phenomenal team, and the inspiration of U2, Hillsong United, Paramore, Gungor, and others, the  music has taken shape. It is a creative blend of style and is sure to catch you smiling, crying, or bouncing at some point during your journey through the album.

Avory recently had the opportunity to open for Big Daddy Weave, they are part of the worship team at their church, Changing Pointe in Yakima, and they regularly lead at their Youth Church. They also helped start a school of music, where they teach beginning lessons, coach intermediate students, and raise up advanced players. They facilitate regular jam sessions wherein the participants can display their newly learned skills. The team also creates opportunities for the students to go into the community and share their budding talents and heart for God. Avory’s purpose in all of this is to raise up generations of worship leaders and God honoring artists. They take every opportunity to share the talents and message God has given them, leading worship in other churches and for various youth events around the country. They are currently preparing for a three-week mission trip to India and Sri Lanka this fall.

  • The Pumpkin Parable

    Every autumn I'm reminded of this parable when I see a pumpkin: "Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts Read More
