ILLUSTRATOR - Illustrator (1987)

Christian bands have developed an interesting performance
since the middle of the 80's, launching radiable and
discs, with very good artistic production.
ILLUSTRATOR, Gaube's bros. group, was one of them.
Their debut, achieved a considerable success in CCM circles
and mainstream radio.
Although the next album; 'Somewhere In The World' is much
more accomplished in my opinion, this ST contains good
with good melodies, nice harmonies and a very cool feeling.
Interesting... and pretty rare.

I met them in 1989 in Baltimore,Md. The last time I talked to Mark was 1992 the band was based out of Tacoma,Washington. I don't know that was a long time ago. I found your blog looking for the song Hold My Heart. Good luck!

Hold My Heart is a truly beautiful ballad from Somewhere In The World album. I love every notes of it, especially the chorus. Holding On is cool too. Are they still active? I read on the net that Nathan Gaub changes his career and does finance conferences and forex mentoring.
Can anybody recommend me another great Christian AOR/Westcoast band like this?
