Teshuva

Sam, Angela, Caleb, Lisa and Jonathan

We are the Spear family band Teshuva from Denver, Colorado. We desire to share the message of a RETURN to God and His ways through creative music. The Name Teshuva literally means “to return” in Hebrew.

  • Sam Spear-vox and guitar
  • Angela Spear- vox, guitar, multi-instrumentalist
  • Lisa Spear- keys and vox
  • Jonathan Spear- bass and vox
  • Caleb Spear- sound design

Music Style:
Creative Worship. We desire to convey our message through strong melodic, interesting arrangements. We love using multiple instruments as well as digital sound shaping to create a sonic environment that supports the message. Effects are a huge part of what we do. Being able to build our own effects brings a healthy element of pride into our sound. Understanding how the signal chain is affected through the pedal also helps us make better decisions when creating new tones. Just the right amount of good gear to enhance the tone is paramount to what we do.
