I've been neglecting this community, I know, but here's some updates from the band (now that Trevor is no longer, I'm no longer 'done' with He Is We!).

He Is We are embarking on tour:

But if you cannot make it to their shows, you can purchase a ticket to watch a virtual performance here on 9th April (it's 2am my time, so unfortunately I won't be watching it).

And you can listen to a new song, Down (Acoustic), here.

Rachel released another statement (well, email) about the recent situation. 

This is an email she sent her manager, Jeff, and Trevor (posted on Tumblr):

“Jeff &Trevor:
I am so disappointed in you guys.
I have no others words to describe how I feel right now. I have been asking over and over about writing this next record. I was told that there was no money for it, the label wanted me to take a breather and all sorts of things to push it to the side. I honestly thought you guys were being sweet and trying to help me out. I continued to ask when we could start the record. Over and over just wanting to write. That’s all I have wanted to do while going through all of this. I want to write.
I cannot describe how dark and deceptive you guys have been with me. This is one of my most vulnerable of times and you have ripped me into little pieces and destroyed what I created.
I was looking at the He Is We twitter and saw something that disturbed me a bit. Justin Richards, from Brighten, tweeted at our band and what he said through me off.
“writing day 2 with @HeIsWe. pumped!”
And then it hit me. I have been played all along. Being told I can’t put songs that I write on youtube but you guys can go write under the name He Is We without me? How many of those songs did I put my heart and soul into? How many? And you have the audacity to tell me that the LABEL says “we don’t have enough funding” or “they want you to get better” all the while you’re writing?
This is my statement telling you that He Is We is 50% mine and I should have a say in what is going on with all of this. I have heard NOTHING from you guys. I get told “I’ll call you Monday” or “just get better” and bits and pieces of hope are left to linger.
I do NOT approve the continuation of He Is We without me. I will NOT give up this project that I worked so hard to make happen. I sacrificed my health, holidays, the birth of my baby brother, my emotional state of mind for this band.
I feel that God called me to sing and to write. He did NOT call me to give up. I have been put through hell for this band and I will not stand by and watch you take it away from me.
I can be yelled at, kicked down, lied to and emotionally beaten. But don’t you DARE take away my reason to live, my life in song and my right to continue building He Is We.
I will be taking the legal steps to insure that my 50% is protected and you will not get away with this. The fans will know the truth and this will get ugly very quickly if matters are not taken care of immediately.
This is MY life and I will NOT give up on He Is We.
Shame on you.
I can’t describe what I feel right now.

I am done with He Is We unless they put things right.

Many of you may already know about Rachel's illness, and that she's been replaced on tour by Stevie. Rachel released an official statement about the situation on her new Tumblr blog.

He Is We LJ Community supports Rachel 100%. No one should be pushed out of something they helped to create, but no one - especially someone who's sick - should be treated the way she has been treated.

I was very blessed to be involved with two artists known as He Is We and their delicate new single entitled, “All About Us.” The song radiates a flavor of bliss I’ve never quite tasted before and it’s one of those tracks you keep playing over and over because you want more of whatever it is that connects the emotional dots. You play it once and it feels good, so you play it again, and before you realize it, your iTunes count is over thirty but you’re still going strong. The word endearing keeps popping into my head. One line predicts, “every heart in the room will melt…” and if my heart is any indication, there will indeed be a lot of melting going on.

The song is absolutely beautiful. It’s soothing and quiet, romantic and molasses-sweet, but brave and confident, even shy and vulnerable — all at the same time. It’s a flowery patchwork of ear candy and I’m humbled to have been asked to leave my fingerprint on it. Big hugs and many thanks to Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly. May God use the song to whatever capacity He wills.

Check it out.
