Brian Vander Ark combines a smooth acoustic guitar with his inspiring lyrics to produce a sound that is highly unique. Though his solo career will always be overshadowed by his success with The Verve Pipe, his new style can't be measured under the same standards. His new goal in music is not to make millions. Vander Ark is now all about the music, as seen in Written and Erased (LP Version) from his first solo album, 2004's Resurrection. His wife lux land, also a talented musician, provides inspiration for many of his lyrics as well as back-up vocals.
