Not By Sight talks about overcoming hardships in first lyric video

How do you go along with the hardships of life? Well, for me music has become a good way of clearing and sorting things out. In addition to that it has proven to be a motivating element in my life that pushes me forward.

It also were the lyrics which often grabbed my attention. More than only once they contained helpfull advice or I felt I wasn't alone with what I was going through at that moment. The text often brought up for thought was going through my head.

Americans have a different attempt on expressing such topics in their lyrics I've found out. They often use different words or phrases than others do. You can check that out for yourselves with the video of Not By Sight who have put out their first single and lyric video for the track "Stand". Maybe you can relate to some of the words in the music because "STAND is about overcoming adversity in life and using that adversity to strengthen and elevate you." as Jane Train, the vocalist of the band points out.

This project features some well known names on the instruments amongst them Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Eye Empire, Dark New Day, Saint Asonia), Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence, Seether, Dark New Day, doubleDrive), and Morgan Rose (Sevendust). This song was produced, and mixed by Corey Lowery.

In October of 2014, Corey, Jane, and Troy tracked new songs with drummer Morgan Rose of Sevendust. This project is currently in the works to complete an album.
Not By Sight also play shows here and there but the live line-up is a bit different compared to the one that makes the studio recordings. It features:

Jane Train (Vocals) (Liz Phair)
Virus (Guitar) (Device, Dope)
Troy MacLawhorn (Guest Guitarist) (Evanescence, Seether, Dark New Day, doubleDrive)
Rek Mohr (Bass) (Call Me No One)
Ryan Bennett (Drums) (Eye Empire)

The next show open to general audience has been set up for


Gin Mill and Grille, 1750 Main Street, Northampton, PA
The band will open up for Puddle Of Mudd. Tickets are available at location
