Formed in late 2008 by Jordan Bailey, Michael Loy, Jeremy Menard, & Justin Mosteller. The guys met in Louisville, KY through mutual friends and began leading worship for youth camps, conferences, & churches throughout the southern United States. In the making of their first independent album "This Is Life", the band began to see God transforming their music from songs only for the church to songs that speak both in and out of the church. After that release in February of 2012, they quickly gained recognition growing their local fan base as well as garnering national attention.
In 2013, the boys of Carrollton, formerly known as Mosteller, began the next chapter of their story by signing with Centricity Music. When not traveling, they each still serve as worship leaders in their local churches, 2 living in Louisville & 2 living in Cincinnati. No matter where they go the band will always have its roots in bringing people to Jesus through their music.
