Says Kearney, "Hopefully there is a depth and intimacy of songwriting that goes beyond the novelty of a funky guy with an acoustic guitar.

When I set out to write, I want to write something that will rip your heart out and connect with you.

Describing the song "Renaissance" as an example, Kearney says, "The song is about a friend that was in a car wreck and another who got dumped by his girlfriend.

The lyrics touch on these moments in people's lives when they hit rock bottom and question what's going on and what they are about.

In that place of total uncertainty, they start to look for something real." Looking back, Kearney first left Eugene, Oregon to play soccer at Chico State University, the notorious school that was once dubbed the No. Kearney, who occasionally sold weed in high school, fit right into university's wild ways before eventually hitting rock bottom.

"I guess I lived it up and did what everyone said you should do in college," he recalls.

Tickets are .75 GA ADV and .00 GA DOS plus applicable service charges.

THIS SHOW IS AGES 16 Doors: pm / Show: pm You must be 16 years old or older with a valid ID to enter the Fillmore Auditorium.

"I discovered the depth of depravity, the bleakness of that lifestyle. I finally started understanding there must be more to life." It was at this point where Kearney had a life-changing encounter with Christ. That was the first time in my life when I really felt like I understood who Jesus was-it was more than just knowing about Him, I felt like He met me in that time and place."Kearney began embracing the local music scene that he described as a lot of "Dave Matthews' hippies." The singer, who actively participated in hip-hop culture as a teen, soon found himself fusing his vast influences into a revelatory new folk sound.

During this same period, Kearney started studying poetry in college and writing journals of deep prose about life.

"The roots of that song are really in seeing joy on the other side of pain-of coming to know God and the undeniable nature of who He is."Elsewhere on the album, "Train Wreck" blends ethereal guitars and hard-hitting drums with pure mass pop appeal.
