THE HOMECOMING is a power pop group that can’t get away from being described as the “Jonas Brothers meets the Ready Set” with a clean image, good looks and an energetic sound which has earned the band a large fan base from all over the world.
The Homecoming made their national debut in 2009 at Cornerstone, arguably the world’s largest Christian music festival, thru a personal invitation from Traa Daniels - the bass player of P.O.D. and the president of Ryot Phoenix Music and Media. That summer, The Homecoming outperformed the other 25 bands that were featured on the Ryot sponsored stage by playing for bigger audiences and selling more merchandise - including Ryot‘s own The Wrecking, a band frequently heard on Air 1 Radio. As a result, Cornerstone used the band’s song, So Loud, in the festival’s 2010 promotional video. That October, The Homecoming had a front page, featured article in the Akron Beacon Journal.
In 2010, The Homecoming performed and sometimes headlined festivals all over the country including The Fest, Riot on the River, Hopefest, Sonfest and Ignite Fest - east Alabama's largest Christian music festival. The band shared the stage with Hawk Nelson, John Reuben, Group 1 Crew, Thousand Foot Krutch, Disciple, Fireflight, Deas Vail, Rachael Lampa from this season of The Sing Off and Disney Radio's Savannah Outen - for some audiences exceeding 5000 people for their performance. The Homecoming also played a sold out show at the notorious Cleveland Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The band has been named the spokesperson for My Broken Palace (www.mybrokenpalace.com) in 2011 and performed at the Chick-fil-a owners and operators conference as a result.
The Homecoming’s first single, So Loud, has over 78,000 MySpace plays and was used by the Cleveland Browns at the stadium during home games for most of the 2009 season, all of last season and again this season. The song gets radio air-play across the country and has been the featured song on many music sites including Indie Community, Indie Vision Music, iTickets.com and the NEW! station on I Heart Radio. The Homecoming licensed their music to be used by MTV and will be featured exclusively on all the episodes of the upcoming third season of The Drive TV, a reality show that will be seen on 20 different stations in 200 countries. The band has also filmed a live performance that aired on Exit 16, a music video show on JCTV.
Just recently, The Homecoming was selected by American Idol, 6th season finalist, Phil Stacey to be the flagship band for his efforts as the new executive of Conquer Entertainment. Conquer will be marketing The Homecoming with high level exposure in radio, print media, internet, promoters, producers and labels.
