Meet the Band

october-wedding.jpg

October Wedding is an indie folk-rock worship collective based in Harrisburg, PA.  The group consists of Kyle Werts, David Layser, Ben Spencer, Eleanor Helai, Charisah Cleath, Asher Stanley, and a host of other friends who join us from time to time.  We are a family of creative expression with many voices and songs, unified by the love of the Creator. 

We’ve realized over time that we are not so much a traditional band with one front-man/woman and backups: we’re all leaders and writers and creators in various ways, so we’re finding that it’s working best to help each other steward our songs and place a spotlight on different work at different times.  We’re taking a cue from other collectives who inspire us such as United Pursuit, Cageless Birds, the Avengers, who highlight different voices within the overall family for different projects, all being part of one bigger party. 

May these songs serve as your invitation to the celebration where we’ll get to dance these rhythms and live these dreams and share these struggles together.  Even if it rains, it’s gonna be a great time.
