When vocalist Mac Powell and acoustic guitarist Mark Lee started Third Day back in 1991, they were fresh out of college and still holding down day jobs. (Drummer David Carr and bassist Tai Anderson joined in ’93.) Now the group is all grown up with marriages, babies, and mortgages to deal with. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the band’s mission: to convey the hope and salvation in the eternity of Christ through their music. A band of enormous depth and passion, Third Day’s current musical style ranges from pulsating rock to acoustic pop-rock, but they say “the classic Third Day sound everyone loves is still there” just refreshed and rejuvenated. These days their songs are about pressing on in difficult times, praying for change, and hope for better times…messages we can all relate to.
