About Building 429
Building 429 catapulted from newbie band in 2004 to Christian rock royalty in a single year. When their debut, Space In Between Us, hit the airwaves, their success seemed written in stone. Not even counting the album's equally popular title track and the ballad "No One Else Knows," the super single "Glory Defined" hit No. 1 on eight different charts and became BMI's 2005 Song of the Year for Christian music. That same year B429 received four Dove Award nominations and was named the Gospel Music Association's 2005 New Artist of the Year. Their fresh, melodic, rock composition and clear, candid lyrics combine with a fervent personal commitment to what they see as their responsibility offstage to their fans and their ministry. This commitment is clear even in the root of their name: Building 429 derives from Ephesians 4:29 which, paraphrased, encourages doing "only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
