"Constantly" is our first single picked up by radio in Washington state!! The song is on regular rotation on Bellingham's KPWZ 106.5 FM, otherwise known as Praise 106.5. If you are able to both listen to us and request us through the 106.5 website, we would greatly appreciate it!!

The Reaching has just been featured in the Winter 2009 edition of VAIN magazine. VAIN magazine (www.callmevain.com) is a Seattle-based independent publication that focuses on short stories, art, and music. It is available in libraries and bookstores across 19 states and 3 countries. The website will soon feature the upcoming edition including links and a free download of "Shining Like Stars."

Also, we will soon be featured on a compilation album called "Rock 4 Life Version 2" by Quickstar Productions. This compilation album has been released on iTunes but will soon be available through us in CD format.

Thanks for listening (and bumping).

biography
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. www.itunes.com/thereaching

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.

Just outstanding, guys. Totally satisfying pop sounds, and the guitar edge is beefy and rich.

You guys are amazing, I am in love with every song you have posted, and plan on buying your album soon as I have some spare cash. You have such a unique sound, quite unlike a lot of the cookie cutter bands out there today. Please keep making more great music, all the best of luck to you.

Welcome to t61. We are enjoying your music a great deal. You may want to hold off on uploading additional tracks while this first five gather fans and ultimately make there way to the home page. This may sound counter-intuitive, but, they can actually start competing with each other. If possible, please avoid deleting tracks as players will lose points. Thanks for sharing your songs with us.
