I never would have dreamed that many years later with my own group that it would come to fruition.  We are absolutely thrilled about our new CD and how it is going to define the ministry of Beyond The Ashes.”

For these guys, the songs were more than words on a page or tracks from awesome musicians.  While you get all of that, newest member of the trio Kellan Monroe says this project brings so much more.  In fact, it has made a direct impact on his life, “The beauty of this record is that it showcases all of what BTA embodies…good harmonies, heartfelt songs and our love for Christ! ”
