Worship Band: Second Hand City (f.k.a. Elishah)
Second Hand City (formerly known as Elishah) has adopted a newmoniker, a name that hints at the band's vision and accessibility. Thisnew name is Second Hand City. After years of songwriting, touring, andrecording together, brothers Jimmy and Mike Atkins, along with bandmates Jake Bigelow, John Kiser and Josh Lanier, realized this truthwould inevitably change their music, their lives, and the scope of theirministry. Inspired by an urgency to unite the Body of Christ and tobuild His kingdom through music, Second Hand City wraps their passionfor melodies, lyrics and sonic textures around honest life experiences.This provides the framework for their upcoming eponymous album, “SecondHand City.”
