Background[edit]

Luminate frontman Samuel Hancock is from Washington, Indiana. Deciding between business school or music, he chose music.[2] Hancock went to Visible School of Music in Memphis, Tennessee, where he met Dusty Jakubik, who is from Tyler, Texas.[2] At the time, Jakubik "was looking for a fresh start after his current band fell apart after signing a major label deal."[2] Jakubik's first thought was that he "liked the music Hancock was writing, and while he wanted to start a band, he was wary of working with someone who still had some growing up to do. Sam was coming out of a period of rebellion in high school".[2] Jakubik went to consult his hometown friend Cody Clark. "I already knew I wanted to work with Cody. We both shared the idea that we wanted a band that was a brotherhood. We wanted to be close and for the Lord’s hand to be in everything we did. I told Cody, 'I don't know about this kid, Sam, but he's incredibly talented.'" [2] Eventually, those concerns were put to rest, and they sought out two more members for the band, adding Dustin DeLong and Aaron Matthew, who performed with By the Tree and Kari Jobe.[2] The band was finally formed in the Fall of 2005.[2]

Music[edit]

EP's[edit]

The band released three independent EP's that were called Luminate EP in 2006, Bright and Beautiful EP in 2007, Miracle EP in 2008.[3] They were signed to the Sparrow Records label in 2010 and released another EP called Luminate in 2010 to introduce themselves to a wider audience.[2]

Come Home[edit]

Their first full length studio album was released on January 25, 2011 -- Come Home, after their hit song on the record "Come Home".[2][3][4] The album was produced by Ed Cash, Paul Moak and Ben Glover.[2] Lastly, the album Come Home was nominated for the Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year at the 43rd GMA Dove Awards.

Welcome to Daylight[edit]

Their second full length studio album was released on August 28, 2012 called Welcome to Daylight, and the first single from the album was "Banner of Love", which both have been chart successes.
