Meet Andrew (vocals), Dan (bass), Josh (guitar/vocals), JJ (guitar/screams/BG vocals) and Travis (drums/tamborine), five guys from Cincinnati, Ohio, who were inspired by their hardships to write their first album telling the story which lead them to chase their dream and undying passion to make music. With heartfelt messages through their songs and exceptional live performance, they have managed to make instant fans all over the US and abroad without any backing from a label or distribution company. CTH is the perfect example of the "DIY" band that will soar to great heights under any circumstance only to do what they love! During their first nation wide tour, their bassist Brad Andress had a cancer relapse. The rest of the guys pulled their money together and flew Brad back home, canceled the rest of the tour and returned home to be with Brad. Unfortunately, Brad lost his battle with cancer at the age of 20 on October 6, 2006. In December of that year the band released a tribute album, which consisted of song by other bands that were close friends of Brad.
