Inherents Music



INHERENT – MUSKOGEE, OK (918) 683-7867


Growing up in small towns in eastern Oklahoma, this group has always been a part of the working class. Going to church became a passion for them as they followed the teachings of Christ. Tim Shade always longed to play the piano and after coming face to face with the reality of a heavenly afterlife, he became motivated to learn. Jeremy Parker started playing the drums while just a kid but he always had a desire to learn the guitar. He found the inspiration while attending church one day and later joined up with Tim to write songs about Christ. They have devoted their song writing to only Jesus and life in their songs are all about personal growth in their own lives and how it fits in the Christian life.

As they often say, “We don’t have a particular style because you can’t tell about the goodness of God in only one way. God can be experienced in many ways and forms and we don’t want to narrow the minds of people by playing one style. As a Christian band we believe in God’s word. And the Bible is God’s word. God wants us to have a life of more than enough. The only way to get that is to do what God says.

Even though they have different desires and goals, they do share one thing in common. They want to write and play music that lifts up Christ and to help others realize that they are not the only ones that have gone through the trials of this world.

We have been playing music together since about 1999. We want our music to be for Christ, and about life as it is now. We love different kinds of music. And it shows in the music that we play. As the leader of the band (Jeremy) grew up listening to country music. “I am a country boy. And you can hear it in the music that I play and sing.” The keyboard player (Tim) likes to listen to 80’s soft rock. And yes you can hear it in the music that he plays and sings.

There are about 11 years different’s in our ages. But we have been very good and close friends for many years. We went to church together. And even went to the same school. We grew up in the same small town. And know most of the same people.

Exo 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god, for the LORD whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

There is only one God. And we will praise and worship him and only him forever and ever.
Fame and fortune is not important to us. Just to hear a little girl or boy came up and say, ‘Thank you. You wrote that song for me,’ is payment enough. If a young punk rocker can enjoy a simple folk song while a senior citizen can rock to another, then we’ve obtained our goal.”

Jeremy and Tim reside in eastern Oklahoma where Jeremy is a construction worker and Tim is a teacher. Each experience from their careers inspires them to write new music.

2 Chronicles 5:13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
