Unspoken began coming together on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Chad Mattson met guitarist Mike Gomez and the two began to play and write songs together. Chad was coming out of a drug addiction and had gone to the Dominican on a mission trip to get away and rediscover his relationship with God. Chad was freed from the shackles of addiction and celebrates his recovery each year. After their time in the Dominican, Chad and Mike moved to Maine and started touring as Unspoken. They eventually added Jon Lowry (bass player) and Ariel Munoz (drummer) and has shared the stage with artists such as: Third Day, Casting Crowns, Toby Mac, and Pillar. Now Unspoken has signed with Centricity Music and is releasing its debut EP Get to Me, a collection of soulful pop-rock songs that reflects the myriad of musical influences represented in the band. Get to Me focuses on coming back to Jesus. Much like Chad experienced firsthand in the Dominican Republic, Unspoken feels called to awaken the Church to rediscover their personal relationship with Jesus. “Growing up in church myself as a pastor’s kid, I became complacent to the power of the Gospel,” says Lowry. “Christians often view the Gospel as a runway: useful only for the initial take-off as a Christian and for final landing in heaven. But really, the Gospel is more like jet fuel– we need it to get off the ground but we also need it throughout the flight. I get so excited when I think about our audience, the Christians in the church, and about waking them up to the daily power of the Gospel.”
