Worship Band Fike: New Album, The Moment We’ve Been Waiting For, To Release In April

Posted on April 7, 2012


Colorado Springs, Colo. (February 22, 2012) - - Integrity Music recently
signed Colorado-based worship band Fike with their major label debut,
The Moment We’ve Been Waiting For, slated to release April 10, 2012.
Fronted by husband and wife Richie and Dana Fike, the band was
previously featured in Worship Leader magazine for their independently
released album Make A Sound. The magazine also featured four of
Fike’s songs (“Ascend to Heaven,” “Who is Like the Father,”
“My Savior Lord,” “Glorious You Are”) in its Song DISCovery series, which
introduces new worship songs to the Church.

Richie and Dana Fike have been writing for Integrity Music for the past
two years, penning songs cut by The Katinas, Amy Perry, Travis Ryan,
Dara Maclean and Phillips, Craig & Dean.

Their song “Ascend to Heaven” was chosen as “Song of the Year” at the
Gospel Music Association’s “Music in the Rockies” event in 2008 and
was included in the 2009 Dove Award-nominated choral collection by
the same title.

Fike’s Integrity label debut, The Moment We’ve Been Waiting For,
features 13 tracks and was produced by Brent Milligan (Steven Curtis
Chapman/Seventh Day Slumber/The Elms) and Paul Mabury
(Hillsong/Brandon Heath/One Sonic Society). The project includes the
radio single, “Wait,” which is available as a free download for a limited time through the band’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/FikeMusic.

Louisiana natives Richie and Dana Fike have been singing and
writing together since the late 90s. Following their marriage in ‘99, the
couple toured the country, often appearing with friends such as Shane &
Shane and Robbie Seay. But along the way, they “fell out of love with
the road, and in love with the Church.” With a desire for more
“rootedness,” the couple began interning and eventually serving on staff
at Grace Community Church in Tyler, Texas. Then, in 2002, they joined
the staff at Vanguard Church in Colorado Springs, Colo., where they
have served for the past 10 years. To follow Fike on Twitter,
