Welcome to the webpage of Taking Jericho, a contemporary Christian band based in Calgary Alberta.
Taking Jericho began performing contemporary worship songs in Sunday service at the Rocky Mountain Church of Christ in 2012. We soon realized that we had our own message that we wanted to share through our music and began writing and recording original compositions.
Wow it's been a few weeks since our mini tour to Hinton. Thank you so much Sonfest for including Taking Jericho! Man it was fantastic! It has been so great so great to be able to travel to the north and admire so much of what God has to offer us with something as simple as camping! the great outdoors got to absorb our songs and we got to worship with the wind and the trees. Reminds me of the time I used to be in my high school band and we would go one band tour to different cities and participate in music festivals and workshops. The group pretty much had such an experience getting to play with another band last minute! Who else can say that they have had that opportunity?!?!
Hi again everyone.
You may have heard by now that Taking Jericho has launched a new Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for shooting a music video of one of the songs from our upcoming CD.
Please check out the campaign page, and help out if you can!
Hey everybody... Check your calendar, Taking Jericho has announced two upcoming shows this summer.

Hey everyone. We just wanted to let you know that we have started our IndieGoGo campaign to raise money to fund the recording and distribution of our debut CD.
You can find a link to the campaign on the IndieGoGo website. Anything anyone can do to help contribute is greatly appreciated! Even if you aren't in a position to help out financially, we would be very grateful if you could spread the word about our campaign via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
Hey gang, just wanted to let everyone know that Taking Jericho is launching a new email newsletter in the coming weeks.
We're planning to send out a newsletter about every other month, with all of the latest news from the world of Taking Jericho.
So if you want to make sure you can keep up with the Joneses (or should that be Jerichoans...?), simply browse on over to our website and enter your email address in the "subscribe" field.
Evane Jukes from Faith Church sent us some great encouragement after Sherry and Leanne performed at the Gospel Talent show.
Taking Jericho recently performed at the Faith Church and Unshackled Youth Performing Arts 'Gospel Talent Show' and the audience just loved them! We had a multicultural group of people of all ages attend our event from across the city and Taking Jericho certainly stood out as a real crowd pleaser! Their music is current, very 'catchy' and so inspirational! We would definitely love to have them play for us again at future events!
Hi everyone... We're hoping to record a full CD this fall and we are thinking about funding it through a crowdsourcing site like Indiegogo
We'd be interested in hearing what people think... Would anyone be interested in contributing to the project in return for Perks like free CD's, appearances in a video, a song written specifically for you, or a personal appearance?
Here's an example of a CD that was funded through Indigogo with the kinds of perks that we might make available:
