Worship band Modern Day Cure has enjoyed warm reception since the release of their current single “Confident.” With Aaron and Tamar Chipp at the helm, the Nashville-based group has shared their ministry across several states and venues since 2012, sharing the stage with the Newsboys, Sanctus Real, and other artists.
Libra: Tell us about the moniker Modern Day Cure.
MDC: We get our name from Hebrews 14:8 which says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” To us, this makes Him the modern day cure. Jesus is the answer the world needs today and He will always be.
Libra: How do you describe the band’s sound?
MDC: Our sound can be described as contemporary worship with pop/rock elements. We’re exploring new sounds and feel like we’re finding ourselves in this new season as a band.
Libra: Modern Day Cure is a young band–just getting started–so to speak. What do you want the band to be when it “grows up”?
MDC: God’s given us a big vision, but we know it’s in His control and time frame. We try to stay faithful with what He’s given us in the moment. We like to say we’ll go as far as He takes us.
Libra: Besides your own music, what’s currently playing in your personal music playlist?
MDC: We love The Belonging Co (our home church), Elevation Worship, and Bethel Music.
Libra: What else would you like to share?
MDC: We’re in the process of recording a new EP to be released this fall…and would love to partner and serve churches, events and festivals. For more info visit www.moderndaycure.com.
