Based out of north-central West Virginia, Theodicy began when singer/songwriter Paige Butcher and guitarist Sarah Rudy joined forces to create an acoustic-based ensemble during the summer of 2005. After recording one song at a Fine Arts Festival in Denver, Colorado, Paige and Sarah began sharing their music with family and friends. When more and more people began responding to their sound, Theodicy decided to record an official demo. Since then, two new members have joined the band, including bassist Matt Crum and drummer Joel Pagan. Now in the studio recording their first EP (available in early July), Theodicy is also occupied writing new material and traveling throughout West Virginia and Pennsylvania for their busy summer tour schedule.
With a sound that blends acoustic rock, blues, and jazz, Theodicy hopes to bring something fresh to the Christian music scene as well as to branch out beyond the walls of the church in order to reach as many people as possible with their message. Theodicy is intent on spreading their music to people of all ages, faiths, and walks of life, while not being shy about the center of both their lives and their music: Jesus Christ.
"We want to write music that is relevant to people where they are, not just where they should be," says singer Paige Butcher. "We arent perfect. We struggle with our lives and our faith, but its important to us that we're real and transparent with people -- and that our music reflects that."
With a musical style that draws fans of all ages and lyrics that are both introspective and encouraging, Theodicy makes every effort to be a vindication of Gods goodness in light of the existence of evil.
