Bellarive is a Christian pop rock band that originated in Orlando in 2009. The band is composed of Sean Curran (vocals, rhodes and guitar), Melissa Mage (vocals and percussion), Mike Mage (programming, guitar and vocals), Zach Glotffelty (lead electric guitar), Josh Luker (bass guitar and percussion) and Kenny Werner (drums). After one self-released EP, they signed to Sparrow Records in May 2012, and released their debut studio album The Heartbeat on June 19. This album peaked on the Billboard Christian Albums chart at No. 21 and on the Heatseekers Albums chart at No. 17.
As it says on their website ,
"In the summer of 2009, the Lord gifted a unified vision to the hearts of six friends from Orlando, Florida. That vision quickly developed into the atmospheric worship band now known as Bellarive. Their heart is to craft artistic worship music for the creation to sing straight to the Father above. Bellarive believes that God is calling them to lead these songs not just inside the four walls of a church, but to whoever will lend an ear.
Band member Sean Curran says it this way, “The Creator is continuously stirring the souls of all His children toward Himself. We believe that God creates His children with specific design to reveal and bring glory to Himself in unique ways. For the six of us, that gift is creating music.” The band believes there to be a beautiful relationship between Spirit and sound, and expresses that connection through their worship individually and corporately. Melissa Mage states, “We pray that we would be the conduit between the Creator and His creation and that His glory would always be the focal point.”
Bellarive travels throughout the year leading for churches, colleges, missions groups, conferences, camps and concerts."
