Cloverton Christian Band Coming to BC
With a musical message of non-conformity and being faithful to God’s calling, award-winning contemporary Christian band Cloverton will perform live in concert on the campus of Bluefield College, Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m.
Contemporary Christian band Cloverton will perform live in concert at Bluefield College, April 24.



As part of the school’s daylong, year-end celebration of Mud Pig Day, the Cloverton show will take place inside BC’s Harman Chapel. Admission to the public will be $10 at the door. Bluefield College students, faculty and staff will be admitted for free. No advance tickets will be sold.


Consisting of Lance Stafford (piano/vocals), his twin brother, Layne Stafford (bass), Kirby LeMoine (drums) and Josh Svorinic (guitars), the band propelled onto the Christian music scene in 2011 as the first ever “Rock the Camp” contest winners, hosted by TobyMac and Camp Electric. Soon after receiving this prestigious honor, Cloverton scored the number one most downloaded song in the history of K-LOVE radio with its first single, “Take Me into the Beautiful,” which also climbed the Contemporary Hits Radio (CHR) chart to number 12, and the Christian Billboard Top 25 to number 17.


After a season of traveling countless miles all over the world, playing shows, festivals and even cruises, Cloverton ventured back into the studio with producer Joshua D. Niles to record its highly anticipated first full-length album, “Patterns.” Released in September 2013, “Patterns” features “personal, worshipful music that cuts through the business of our everyday rhythms and reaches into the hearts of the listener.”


“We believe there is something in this album for everyone, because we believe there areparts of our story that will resonate in some way with everyone’s story,” said Lance Stafford. “We are so intentional about each lyric and want every song to be a unique and connective experience.”


The band’s music is carefully crafted with songs that touch cords in each and every person. Marrying charming melodies and ambient sounds with scriptural truths, the group explores the vast range of emotions associated with faith, hope and love through songs like “White Knuckles,” “Father’s Love,” “You Never Leave,” “Someday,” and “Green Light.”


“We all have an opportunity to either conform to or transform the world,” said Lance Stafford. “The man we celebrate, Jesus, came to this world and didn’t follow the religious patterns of his day. We’re trying to follow His lead by not just going with the flow for the sake of being comfortable or safe.”
