In June of 2017, Ron Smith began to have the idea to start a new Christian Contemporary Band. The idea was already circling around in his head for some time, but it began to become a real concept in the early weeks of June 2017.
Ron had played electric guitar since he was 13 years old. At that time
he joined a Contemporary Christian Band in Japan as his Mom and Dad
were Missionaries in Japan.
The band was made entirely up of Missionary Kids and played in various places and churches and events. They played songs from the original Jesus Music bands including the Group "Love Song" which was composed of Tommy Coomes who later established Maranatha Music, Chuck Girard, Bob Wall, John Mehler, Jay Truax, Phil Keaggy,and Fred Moore. At that time this band, and just a few others, made great changes to Christian Music and was the birth of Contemporary Christian Music. Love Song was one of the first Christian Rock Bands and was started in 1970.
So the choice of the name SpiritSong
Band was based to a great degree on that early influence
of the Love Song Band. That is a part of how the name "SpiritSong Band" came about. When
deciding on a name for the Band Ron wanted a name with "Song" as part
it. He also wanted something that would clearly denote the type of music
it was and so after considering a number of possible names he decided on "SpiritSong"
