Life Support is a modern rock/worship collective whose passion is to lead people into God’s presence. The band’s second album, “Roar of Heaven” is a thoughtful and compelling call to worship that pushes the musical and lyrical boundaries of the genre… The band’s journey began at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish N.S. when a few friends decided they wanted to change the atmosphere on campus. With a handful of instruments and an abandoned chapel, they began to gather for worship. Within two years the small group of ten exploded into hundreds of students. Many lives were radically changed; God’s Kingdom had begun to invade… Life Support consists of Deanna Leil (vocals/synths), Alex Stephen (vocals/synths), Rob Reid (guitars/vocals), and Andrew Asare (Drums). They have been touring their country full time for almost six years, partnering with organizations for major conferences such as YC Alberta, Soulfest, Ichthus Festival, Alive On The Island, Toronto’s Mission Fest, Global Day of Prayer, BCOQ’s Blizzard, and Jesus To The Nations and have shared the stage with bands such as Leeland, Starfield, and Jeremy Camp. They are also actively involved in ministering to churches, youth groups, camps, and retreats. Life Support has been together for eight years and has since moved beyond the walls of St. Francis Xavier University to become missionaries to Canada. Their partnership with Compassion Canada led them on an exposure tour to Quito, Ecuador. This trip was instrumental in increasing their passion for world missions. Seeing the face of poverty first hand, the band advocates for the poor and less fortunate of the world. They use the stage and their music to increase awareness of how we can impact and give hope to people in need.
