Falling UP-date

Here's an update on the band Falling UP by our guest blogger, Air 1 afternoon guy, Ashton! (great pic, by the way!)


Hey, It's Ashton! So we've been talking about Falling Up calling it quits recently, but in all reality, musicians don't die, they just start other bands! Especially when you were once in Falling Up. The end means a new beginning!

Here's a not-so-quick recap of the band:

2002- Falling Up is born with Jessy Ribordy, Jeremy Miller, Josh Shroy (The final 3 remaining members of the band), Joseph Kisselburgh, Andrew Dub & Tom Cox.

2003- Andrew said good bye & the band welcomed Michael Humphrey as their DJ, who also replaced Andy on keyboards.

2004- was a good year, mainly because they all remained...

2005- Tom Cox & Michael Humphrey are out. (Cox goes on to his current band Becoming an Archer.) Falling Up then adds Micah Sannan & Adam Taylor.

Confused yet? Hang on, we're almost there!!

2006- arrives and after a few years touring, Joseph Kisselburgh is out. (He now has his band The Send.)

2007- Micah Sannan departs. He's now in the band Disciple (and he's the Disciple guitarist we've asked you to pray for due to a serious infection, 3 surgeries in 5 days.) Adam Taylor also waved goodbye that year, too.(He currently does merch for Hawk Nelson.)

From 2007 on, Daniel Hudleston joined the remaining trio of Falling Up's Jessy Ribordy, Jeremy Miller & Josh Shroy. Who knows where these 4 end up next? Word has it that Falling Up and ex-member Joseph Kisselburgh, now of The Send, are currently collaborating. Think of it like a Falling Up reunion ... kind of.

FREE Superchic[k] download!

You get 2 great things with this free Superchic[k] download --an awesome Superchic[k] song & an intimate look at Superchic[k] singer/guitarrist Melissa Brock.



Did you know she struggled with an eating disorder when she was 15? Melissa knows what it's like to "... not feel pretty, to feel fat, to feel like no one would ever want to be with you or even be friends with you because you feel so bad about yourself. BUT I also know how it feels to be free from those pressures and feel a love and acceptance that isn’t humanly possible." Read her story.


Superchic[k] wants u to have this free download, but it's this week only, February 21-27, in support of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. Check it out!

Yeah, I'm excited about all the awesome crazy amazing & new music we're adding to the Air 1 playlist this week. Check it out!!!


All Star United “Beautiful Way” from The Good Album

Ian Eskelin of All Star United says making an ASU record means "... a lot of guitars and a lot of satire and a whole lot of fun."

Oh yeah, it's gonna be FUN!


Britt Nicole “Walk on Water” from The Lost Get Found

The new Britt song reminds me of Jordin Sparks. What do YOU think? Listen to the song and tell me in the comments section!

(Pictured: Britt Nicole's guitarrist, Britt, and Sean from the Air 1 Morning Show!)


... and a brand new Air 1 artist!

Dorothy Savage “As Long As It Takes” from Glorious Mess.


(Doesn't she kinda look like a cross between Katherine McPhee and Kristin Chenoweth??)
