Intensity Shift was formed early in the winter of 2001 by Leonard Lewis (vocals and bass guitar), Terry Greene (guitars) and Clinton Dodson (drums/percussion).
Listeners of an 'IS' performance are caught-away in an epic auditory odyssey, in which heavy, hard-hitting compositions transition to the "surreal and beyond" - by way of the most beautiful, captivating passages imaginable. Driving beats, artistic bass lines, screaming, always imaginative guitar, spatially intriguing keyboard performances, and ethereal vocals; combine to fashion a sound most unique to the Christian music genre. Engaging, sometimes, profound lyrics complete the 'IS' experience with positive, compelling, allegoric tales of life, love, loneliness and fear - all while pointing to a hope found only in Jesus Christ. This isn't light and breezy stuff, but a creative expression of our human existence.
"We want to be God's 'good and faithful servants' in all aspects of life, including our musicianship. To be worthy of such a title, we have to maintain a consistent level of creative excellence and a passion for timeless music." - Terry Greene
"Intensity Shift is a work-in-progress... Our music is reflective of God's awe-inspiring creation. We hope that with each new melody and each inspired verse, 'more of Him' and 'less of us' will shine through in the end result." - Leonard Lewis
