D. R33D comes from a background of cultural Christianity, public façade, and private trauma. Growing up in and around church culture he learned the language, right answers, and how to put up a front of being a Jesus follower. During his second year of college he was challenged to read three to four chapters of Scripture each day, a challenge he took in arrogance, but one that God used to soften his heart. Now D. R33D wants to use his music to glorify God while impacting the listener as well. Even in our mess, it is okay to not be okay, but it is not okay to stay there.
