Maverick City started with a dream to make space for folk that would otherwise live in their own separate worlds; to break the unspoken rules that exist and to be a mega phone for a community of creatives that have been pushed to the margins of the industry of Church Music.
What brings them together; and that sound that is vivaciously smacking you in the face the first time you hit play on a Maverick track; isn’t the sound of a community that cantered around their deprivation, it’s the audacious sound of true belonging: the beautiful harmony of long-lost family.
Maybe now more than ever, not just the Church but the world, needs a plurality of strong, diverse voices carrying messages that can help reshape the world. However Maverick City didn’t start out to be a diverse community for the sake of diversity.
They simply became aware of the deep need for people, who were so absent from each other’s lives that their silence was deafening.
Their response was to create space for that which they had so profoundly became of aware of – our need for each other.
