The Incandescent – An internationally touring rock band from the Pacific Northwest with members Collin Johnson, Ryan Armstrong, Zach Wright, Shane Collins, and Andrew McArdle. In late 2010 The Incandescent started as a collaborative worship project between Armstrong & McArdle. However, It became clear in 2011 that the group was meant to be more than a worship quintet in their hometown. In the years since the band has gone on to perform a plethora of concerts with many great artists! They have recently performed on the main-stages of Creation NW, New Life Festival, & Dove Fest in Medford, OR.
The Incandescent kicked off the 2016 touring season with a run of shows with Crowder and quickly becoming a favorite with the veteran artist's fans! The band has also been in the process of branching out of the Northwest. In fall 2015 the team was invited to perform at Spirit Fest Corpus Christi & Spirit Fest Austin. Both largely attended festivals in the state of Texas. The band played and mingled with new fans in a very up-close and personal manner. Staking their claim in the hearts of Christian music fans in South-central Texas!
This group of musicians is all-about building and fostering relationships with their fans and promoters which has proved fruitful in opening doors to perform with many of today's leading Christian artists! In 2016 the band supported: Switchfoot, MercyMe, For King & Country, Matt Maher, Jeremy Camp, Family Force 5, Andy Mineo and many others! In addition to keeping a vibrant tour schedule The Incandescent have kept a bi-yearly release schedule for their records. To date the band has released four recordings: Planting Bulbs-2012, The Incandescent EP-2014, Undiscovered & Live From The PNW-2016. The team is currently in the process of writing a full length studio project for which a release date has not been set.
