    Sixteen Cities is a Christian pop rock four-piece band from Portland, Oregon, consisting of Josiah Warneking, Josh Miller, Joel Warneking, and Chad McCutchen. The band started out as a public school worship and prayer ministry in 2002, led by front man Josiah Warneking and guitarist Josh Miller. Without any intention of being a Christian rock band, they started meeting at their school each week, in an attempt to reach their friends for Christ. It wasn’t long before the band knew they were called to use music as a way to reach their generation. After graduating high school, they decided to go into the music industry full-time, embarking on an indie artist career in the northwest. The band recorded two independent albums, while touring the west coast. In 2009, Sixteen Cities signed a record deal with Centricity Music and released their first nationally distributed self-titled album in early 2010.
    The album was well received, with their hit song “Sing Along” reaching the Top 25 in Christian radio all over the country. Their songs were featured on TV shows like “One Tree Hill” and have been played in the retail store Hollister. A busy tour schedule has taken Sixteen Cities all over the world, playing at festivals, conferences, churches, schools and camps with artists such as Casting Crowns, Kutless, Building 429 and Sanctus Real. In the fall of 2010, Sixteen Cities released their first worship album entitled Your Love Is, which demonstrates their passion for leading contemporary and relevant worship.
    “It is our desire to be a band of servants, humbly offering our gifts and talents to reach this world for Christ. We know we’re just a bunch of normal guys, living each day in the grip of God’s grace”, says front man Josiah Warneking.
    Although young – their ages ranging from 20 to 26 – Sixteen Cities are veterans to the life of music ministry, and are focused on bringing this generation into a passionate and authentic relationship with Jesus Christ, through both original music and their worship ministry. The band recently finished recording their 2nd full-length album with Centricity Music, Love Is Making A Way which releases March 13, 2012. 
    Sixteen Cities is:
    Josiah Warneking – Lead Vocals, Piano
    Josh Miller – Guitar, Vocals
    Joel Warneking – Bass Guitar, Vocals
    Chad McCutchen – Drums

    Great guys! | Posted February 28, 2012
    Sixteen Cities came and performed at my school's (Word of Life Bible Institute) Snowcamp, and they were awesome! Throughout the day they hung out with everyone and played games with the campers, signed autographs, took pictures with everyone that asked, and just really talked to us. These guys have hearts for God and aren't afraid to show it. Plus, they filmed their music video for "Love is Making a Way" on a frozen lake on my campus! This is a top-notch band for sure.

    Why not 40 cities? | Posted May 23, 2010
    Why is there only 16 cities? That's not a lot of cities.

    A Pretty Good Band | Posted May 19, 2010
    These guys don't do anything revolutionary and it's unlikely they will make it onto my "must-hear" list anytime soon, but they make decent music that is enjoyable, and for that, they get kudos from me.
