The rock band Falling Up first came together in Albany, Oregon in 2001 after the boys met in high school. Following a few years of making music, the group signed a record deal in 2004, and released its debut album Crashings, which was produced by Aaron Sprinkle of Kutless, and Jeremy Camp. The album featured the popular songs: “ Broken Heart,” “ Bittersweet” and “ Escalates.”

Known for its upbeat electronic rock sound, the band- consisting now of Jessy Ribordy, Jeremy Miller, Josh Shroy, and Nick Lambert, has released an array of albums and songs including: Dawn Escapes (2005), Exit Lights (2006), Captiva (2007) which included, “ Hotel Aquarium,” and Fangs (2009), which featured the single, “Lotus and Languorous.”

To the disappointment of many fans, lead vocalist Jessy Ribordy announced that the band was “taking a permanent break,” and would perform their final show together on January 29,  2010, at the Parachute Music Festival. 

However, on October 22, 2010, the band updated their MySpace page saying that they were working on new music. Jessy explained that the band members wanted to explore other musical endeavors and that their record label did not support the band's ideas for future releases, which lead to their breakup. Feeling uneasy about ending the band so abruptly, Falling Up decided to make music independently instead and have since released Your Sparkling Death Cometh (2011), Mnemos (2012), Midnight On Earthship, (2012), Hours (2012), Midnight on Earthship (2013), and Silver City (2013).

“Our mission is to tell everyone who listens to our music and goes to our shows about the love we have in Christ Jesus, to show people that Christians can be real and honest,” explains Jessy. "It is to glorify God in every aspect of our lives and this band, and to show people through our lyrics, music, love, and lifestyles that there is more to life than what the world has offered us.”

With all the changes through out the years, the band remains passionate about setting a positive example, and using their lives for ministry. “We want kids to feel like they are a part of what we are singing and playing about,” Jessy says. “We feel that if they can connect with the music, they will understand our hearts and our dreams. We think kids will be able to listen to our music and not just have a fleeting emotional experience, but a memory that will stick with them forever. We believe that our influence on the kids will not just happen with our music, but our lives that we live every day. We want to be 'Falling Up' on the stage and off because that is who we are, and we think that an example is the most important influence of all.”
