Mission Statement

all.above.north operates on a belief of obedience to what God calls the band to do for His glory, not the band's, and that what all.above.north creates is by God, for God and because of God.


all.above.north is a Christian indie rock band from Sydney, Australia. The band's name is a reference to God the Father of the Christian Bible, who, "... looks down from His holy habitation, from heaven, and blesses His people." (Deuteronomy 26:15)
all.above.north uses contemporary music to deliver honest and open lyrics. Steering clear of the traditional 'church worship album', all.above.north draws on alternative and indie rock influences to create music to appeal to a wide audience and then adds lyrics about real life experiences of Christian life.
all.above.north aims to share personal testimony through the lyrical themes to encourage listeners in their walk with God, to provide hope to those who are struggling with difficult times in the life, and to build others up in the knowledge that there is a God who is faithful, who loves us and who walks with us through our trials and hardships.
The current single 'Please Don't Forget Me', from the new album 'How Great It Is To Be Broken', is about being open and honest with God when we face trial and hardship, in the same way that Kind David was in the Psalms that he wrote. The song is about a faithful crying out to God for help, and having a trust in Him that He will lead us through.
The last song on the new album is the title track, 'How Great It Is To Be Broken'. This song recognises that sometimes God brings us through periods of refining and perseverance which at the time can seem life like extreme trial and hardship. But this song thanks God for working in our lives during these times, recognising that God's had gently breaks down those things in our lives which are sinful so that He can rebuild is again. It is a song of joyful thanks and praise to God.
