“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” (Col 3: 16)
A Christian alternative band originating from Middelburg, Mpumalanga in South Africa. Music is a way to create an atmosphere of heaven for worshiping God. It's all about describing and experiencing our God for who He is. By combining distinctive rock genres with praise and worship, the music is unique and fresh. The band enjoys writing new praise and worship music in English and Afrikaans and puts in effort to combine the Word of God with spiritual musical excellence.
The band consists of:
Anita Odendaal – Keyboard and vocals
Christian Mostert – Guitar and vocals
Johann Van Zyl – Guitar and vocals
Nelius Odendaal – Bass
Wildré van Deventer – Drums
The band got together to do a one-time praise and worship event in September 2013, and decided to pursue the idea to be a Christian praise and worship rock band. After doing a few gigs in 2014 and also taking time to write some new and 'own' material, the time finally came to start recording their first studio album, working with Jaun Hugo (you might remember him from the band Metanoia) to produce their first album in 2015.
It was only a matter of time before Johann Van Zyl, a good friend of the band and multi-talented musician, joined the Contaious Fire group in February, 2015. We are very excited about what God is doing for the band! We just want people to hear our music about such a great God!
