Sonic Flood

Sonicflood is a Contemporary Christian band, based in Nashville, Tennessee. The band started under the name Zilch, and produced one release under that name before becoming known as a praise and worship band. The name Sonicflood is a reference to a line in the Book of Revelation, chapter 19, verse 6.

Since its debut Sonicflood has sold almost 2 million records, and produced the top worship hits (often as covers) including “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever”, “Resonate”, “Cry Holy” and “Here I am to Worship”. Sonicflood’s line-up has changed significantly from its original band, the loss of Jeff Deyo as lead singer is pointed to as a major change in direction for the band. This has not affected the bands’ ability to prosper; they have earned multiple Dove Awards and Grammy nominations during each instance of existence.
