The band’s latest release, Restoring the Light, displays a collectively-written and creatively cohesive record with a refined sound, encapsulating the tension between reality and faith under a canopy of hope. Lead vocalist Marrissa Parham sings with stirring conviction and disarming sincerity while flourishing instrumentation swirls in a backdrop of cinematic indie-rock.
Beginning in 2014, The Timbre of Cedar grew organically from a simply-planted seed: a gift of studio time from Sam Parham (bass) to then-girlfriend Marrissa LeClair (lead vocals), now a married couple and the driving force behind the band. The musical project blossomed into tangible reality with the release of a self-titled EP and the addition of Alex Rahill on guitar and twin brothers Eric Grzyb on drums and Andrew Grzyb on guitar. Five years later the band is deep-rooted in their craft, toiling at the hearts of listeners to cultivate a sense of belonging and spread a message of hope.
