One of my favorite bands is Switchfoot and their lead singer…
…Jon Foreman is putting out a collection of 4 EPs!
I’ve been following Switchfoot since about 9th grade I’m sure and my basketball team loved their album…
That album was released in February 2003 and totally rocked everyone’s world. Standout songs like “Meant To Live” and “Dare You To Move” put Switchfoot on the map!
So as a fan of Switchfoot, I’ve always followed them and I’ve always followed the solo work of their lead singer Jon Foreman 🙂
With great ambition, Jon set out to create an EP project called “The Wonderlands”. The project includes 4 separate EPs (which are meant to depict a journey through one full 24 day) and are called: “Sunlight”, “Shadows”, “Darkness”, and “Dawn”.
About the EPs, Jon said: “It’s an alternative universe that looks at our own with a fresh perspective. I wanted to capture that idea where you can create a place where people could go and maybe find themselves there. Music has been my companion throughout the day, documenting my life, providing clarity. I thought, what if I can create a day with music, 24 songs for 24 hours that could travel with me. That’s where the concept came from.”
I think his inspiration for the EP collection is brilliant and it just goes to show what an unique artist he is! 😀
“Sunlight” was released in May, “Shadows” was released in July and you can expect “Darkness” to be released on September 4th followed by “Dawn” on October 23rd.
Jon is also planning on celebrating the EPs by performing 24 shows in 24 hours on October 24th!
Be on the lookout for Switchfoot on tour with Needtobreathe this fall as well!
Thanks Jon for always challenging the listener! We love you!
