We are a multi-functional group of Christians that presents God's Word through music and song. It is, after all, what we as Christians are called to do.
The group originated in 2010 as a duo performed by John Lipinski and Beth Courtney. As music and song writing progressed, so did the desire to "spread the Word" and the result was Sound Investment's first album, The Messenger. To celebrate its release and introduce God's music, the group threw a free concert / meeting for anyone thirsty to hear about God. John and Beth asked several friends to join them in this very first "Gathering." These friends included Joe Schafer on piano, Ryan Rincones on drums, Clint Braswell on guitar, David Norman on percussion, Roy Powers on keyboards, Brian Armbruster on bass vocal, and Ron Hahn for a guest appearance on bass guitar.
Several of these "friends" became officially part of Sound Investment after that performance. Sound Investment and friends were now Sound Investment, the band. John, Beth, Clint, Roy, Ryan, and Ron were the original band members. Although members have changed since it originated, the band has performed in Florida locations such as St. Cloud, Viera, Cocoa, Satellite Beach, Merritt Island, Titusville, and Melbourne.
In 2015, Sound Investment paused performances to work on the album, Gospel...according to John. Sadly, the group lost it's drummer, H, when he was called Home shortly after recording tracks for it. Gospel is dedicated to him and the joy he brought to the band. CDs and the album are available for download via CDBaby.com and at any of our performances. All the songs are also available on many streaming sites, such as Spotify.
It's now 2022 and Sound Investment is again primarily a duo, with help now and then from "friends." AND, work has begun on the next album, On the Fence. John and Clint are very excited about this project. Please keep checking here and our Facebook page for more info as things develop!
