The Resilient is an American rock band focused on creating powerful music that reflects both the hardship and inspiration that they have experienced in their military and civilian careers. Formed in the summer of 2018 in a small town in Pennsylvania and composed primarily of severely wounded U.S. combat veterans, the music reflects their name - sincere lyricism, lulling melodies, hypnotizing beats, and weaving harmonies which are explorative yet unforgiving.
The Resilient have teamed up with many musical greats including Yo-Yo Ma, Sheryl Crow, Aaron Neville, Ricky Scaggs, and Oleta Adams. They have collaborated with the Kansas City Symphony, the Grand Ole Opry, the Red Cross, Americans For the Arts, Holidays For Heroes, Operation First Response, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. Band members appeared on the landmark 300th episode of CBS television series “NCIS” as well as the Emmy-winning “Lucky Dog”. The band debuted their first original single "Freedom's Cost" at the 2020 National Association of Music Merchant Convention in California, and are the subjects of a feature length documentary currently in production with LA-based North Projects.
The Resilient's combination of military discipline and artistic freedom powerfully amplifies their radical message of hope. True to their name, they symbolize the universal human ability to overcome the unthinkable. Now they are here to play music like there's no tomorrow.
Community members are invited to meet the band members during an evening of conversations on Friday, September 17 at 7:30 p.m. at JCC in Sturtz Theater. Advanced ticket reservations are required and available online at www.bit.ly/resilientevents.
Made possible by a National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) grant with support from the Disabled Action Persons Organization.
