Band BIOgraphy


Mass Anthem is a Christian pop band originally from the Chicagoland area now located in Nashville, TN. The trio is comprised of brothers, Chad and Tyler Sowards, as well as Joey Atansio. Their debut album ‘ALIVE’ was released in June, 2014 followed by their Single ‘To Get To Me’ in April, 2016 and ‘The Real Me’ in January, 2017. Their second full length Independent album entitled “Through People Like Me” is set to release June 2, 2017. “We hope this new album will capture our creativity and energy that we want to bring to the stage,” says Tyler. “Our goal is to create a diverse album of fun, energetic music with lyrics that will encourage people to live a life for Someone greater than themselves.”


Ben Calhoun, lead singer of popular Christian band Citizen Way, has been a major catalyst of Mass Anthem since its’ founding, involved in much of the writing and producing of Mass Anthems latest singles. “Having Ben has been such a blessing to us. He’s taught us so much about the music industry and given us opportunities we wouldn't have otherwise had,” says Chad, lead singer of the group. 


Mass Anthem relocated to Nashville, TN in pursuit of signing with a major Record Label in 2016, and has high hopes that the coming album will launch them to the next level. “It’s been amazing making new connections with writers and promoters since moving to Nashville. We know we are taking steps in the right direction and are so excited for what the future holds,” says Chad. The band recently signed with Radar Talent Agency Management to take the band to the next level.  


The band cites Citizen Way, for KING and COUNTRY, Colton Dixon, Newsboys, Hawk Nelson, The Afters, and Hillsong Y&F as inspiration.
