It’s been ten years since the local band Soul Purpose released their debut album. This fall, they will be releasing their second outing. The Christian contemporary album has 12 songs, including three originals: “Come on Home,” “At the Cross,” and “For All You’ve Done.”

The seven-piece band is led by Todd Anderson, who sings and plays acoustic guitar. Anderson and keyboard player Dan Klippenstein wrote the three originals on the album. The other band members include Shauna Harms-Wiebe and Coralee Warkentin on vocals, Vic Froese on electric guitar, Burt Hiebert on bass, and Gerry Guenther on drums. 

“We have been fortunate enough to be able to record this album at Arcade Studios in Niverville,” says Anderson. “Evan and Gerry St. Cyr have a state of the art studio and have been very professional and extremely encouraging during the whole recording process.”

The band formed back in 2002, after a few of them were asked to play a church event. That same year, they decided to become a band and chose the name Soul Purpose. 

“Over the years we have played different worship services and various community events as well as local festivals and fundraisers,” Anderson adds.

The band is already planning some bookings for the summer of 2018, as well as their album launch. They are available to play local events.
