As a popular saying goes: "Some friends of mine went to business school, I started a rock band (Guess who had more fun?)."
It has been quite a whirl wind learning experience putting a band together.
The things you learn about business, people and your craft is totally heightened. One thing I'm certain of is that working with a team takes you to a level that you could never reach on your own.
There are enormous highs and ridiculous lows when dealing with people in any setting. And when you link that to the passion and drive of musicians, you get some pretty interesting results. And I can't wait to share those with you.
But before we get there, we need your help. Yes! YOU.
We recently had our band logo designed by the exceptionally talented lead lady of SmallTalk Graphic Design, Celize Kriel. I was thrilled with the results and even though I had my favourite logo that I could easily see printed on T-shirts and banners, the reality is I don't intend to be the only person wearing the clothes. So I thought it would be best to ask what you thought would make a cool design?
The Story behind the name.
I first heard the phrase being used when GodFirst Church ran a sermon series on the story of King David, the biblical hero who had an amazing journey with God from a Shepard boy to young soldier and then eventually becoming King of Israel. The thing that stuck with me so prominently was the title. Soldier.Lover.Poet. Three strong characteristics that resonate with most men. I wanted to call my next EP that but the band members thought it would be a cool band name.
After trying it on, I must admit it kinda sticks (Like super glue). So we have narrowed our logo designs down to these four designs. I know which one is my favourite but ultimately you can help us decide on our final band logo. Help us decide and stand a chance to WIN a T-Shirt with our newly minted logo.
