American Christian rock and alternative CCM and power pop band Sanctus Real was formed in Toledo, Ohio, the United States in 1996. The band was founded by Matt Hammitt and Chris Rohman who met each other at the Christian School. They began writing their music and were joined by other musicians soon. The current band members are Matt Hammitt (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Rohman (lead guitar), Dan Gartley (bass), Pete Prevost (guitar), and Mark Graalman (drums). The band independently released three albums and only in 2001 sent their demos to some records labels. They signed a contract with Sparrow Records and soon released their debut studio album Say It Loud. They quickly gained the popularity and recognition. Their fourth album We Need Each Other (2008) received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Gospel Album. You can download Sanstus Real’s Grammy-nominated album in mp3 from our site.
