The Reaching released their second album, 'Seasons' in July 2012.

All Reaching albums are available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and good old fashioned CD.

In early 2007 four friends began writing songs together. They quickly learned that they shared a great ability to blend their personalities, abilities and influences into something… something good. The group, featuring Jake McVay (vocals/guitar/piano), Mark Blaney (bass), Ericka Wallace (drums), and Kyle McGuire (guitar) came together in Tacoma, WA.

They soon adopted the name 'The Reaching'. Inspired to write music that connected both sonically but also with a 'message'. The Message that there was more out there. That life with its highs and lows joins humanity in 'like' experiences. Justus, Mercy, Grace… Redemption… Drawing on their strong faith in Jesus, and at the same time realizing that not everyone shares that faith. They desire to share a message of hope. Music that conveys both the message and the emotion and hopefully meets people where they are.
