Cyrena-Lead Vocalist of SEED & Worship Leader I have been worship leading and performing for over 25 years, born and raised in Seattle, WA. My professional career started at the age of 11 in hip hop group Eric V. and the Posse. We toured the Northwest States, performing before crowds of up to 1500+ at youth conferences and several events. I then sang backup in alternative band Real, from 1994- 1998, also touring Northwest States and Canada. In 2001, I obtained my B.A. in vocal performance from Seattle Pacific University, training classically. My unique love for rock was confirmed when I performed U2's "In the Name of Love" for a church Easter service. I began the development of my solo career with producer Stevie Adamek in late 2006, but it was put on hold when my family and I moved to the Midwest in 2008. Meeting a producer team in 2010, my artist development continued. I then decided to not take the journey alone: thus Seed was birthed. Our dream is to cross cultural boundaries and spread the message of hope Brandon Scott Rhythm guitarist for Seed I am a Christ follower, husband, brother, and friend. I've been happily married to my bride Sarah Scott for almost three years and still more exciting times ahead! I grew to love music at a young age and started learning the drums at 8 and the guitar at 10. As you can see I prefer the guitar. :) Just a few weeks before my wife and I were married, a friend of mine texted me about an opportunity to play rhythm guitar for a local band called Seed....as you can see I turned it down........NOT! It's been a blast and a real blessing growing alongside these amazing people! I love doing what I do and I can't wait to continue this journey growing as a musician and growing with our Seed Army! I love you guys! -Brandon \m/ -- Philippians 2:1-11 Some of my favorite bands: Fit For A King, Korn, Kamelot, Rammstein, Lindemann, Nightwish, Red, Emigrate, In Flames, ChugChugWob, Lacuna Coil and Demon Hunter Donnie Hillestead Electric guitarist for SEED Born and raised in Stacy Minnesota, I liked listening to music like any other person, but never actually thought much about it. In school, I actually disliked music classes. It was boring and hard and I couldn't understand, so I wanted nothing to do with it, except listening. Then I heard an album called A Momentary Lapse of Reason by Pink Floyd and David Gilmour (Pink Floyd’s lead guitarist) and it was like a switch turned on inside me. I had never heard playing like that and didn't know so much emotion could come through a guitar. It was then I knew that I wanted to play. I got my first guitar and music became my passion. The unlimited amount of possibilities one could do to create atmosphere and emotion was mesmerizing to me. Then one day I decided I wanted to create my own music, and having grown up in the church I wanted to do it for God. Through a chain of events I now am lead guitarist for Seed, a band brought together by God and for God Alicia Marie Keyboardist for SEED I have been singing and playing piano for over 20 years. Music has always been a huge part of my life and is my passion. I am a worship leader and a piano teacher and I have been playing piano and singing backup vocals for the rock band SEED. I also like to upload some covers on youtube along with some original songs. Ben Roehrick Bassist for SEED Ben has been a musician for 16 years. He is best know for playing bass but also plays guitar, mandolin and the ukulele. Ben has been apart of three separate bands and has recorded 3 EP's, 1 with his current band Seed. Some of Ben's musical influences include Bleeding Through, Demon Hunter, Dream Theater and Lamb of God. Outside of music Ben is a disc golfer, gamer: both table top and console and loves watching anime. Ben is a family man with a wife and son who are his biggest inspiration. Ben comes from a Christian family with six sisters and one brother. His father and brother are both musicians and they all played on a worship team together. Ben uses D'addario strings, Ibanez basses and Acoustic amps. Jeremy Galloway Drummer for SEED I have always known since I was about 7 years old after being introduced to KISS what my goal was...to be a rock star. started playing in early 90s with cover bands, playing music just to make a living like family was advising me to do. Played for about 20 years in the country music industry playing with various cover bands and doing regional tours. Got close to making it big a couple of times playing big stages. I realized that it wasn't working out so I decided to go back to day jobs and try to find a band that was already on their way to success in the rock industry. After a couple of failed attempts, I have now found my home with SEED
