From Chico, California, Number One Gun are:

Jeff Schneeweis - Vocals / Guitar

Ben Tietz - Guitar / BGV's

Trevor Sellers - Bass

Jordan Mallory - Drums / BGV's

Celebrate Mistakes, Number One Gun's debut album is exactly just what the title would suggest. Jeff Schneeweis (lead vocals / guitar) was quoted on the band's official website as saying "Really it's all about humbling yourself, realizing our humanity. When you make mistakes, you just have to face it, learn from it and get on with life. God has given us the resources to deal with any situation we are put in. He gives us hope, and a way out. That's really what the album is all about." And though you may not hear God's name in the music, NOG's lyrics remain saturated by their love for and dependence on Him.

The first track on the album is "The Starting Line" which talks about trying to do things on your own and failing miserably each time you try to. "It always added up to be your fall to your mistakes/You want it to be His voice that calls your name". The song ends with Schneeweis repetitiously chanting "I just wanted to get this started". And seeing as how most of the songs on the album are about mistakes, this is perfect. And like I said before, the majority of the tracks on this album follow the leader and share struggles, pain, insecurity, and even agony, but rejoice in recovery.

Lyrically, I think that their best song on the album has to be "These Things." Though, that will always come down to personal preference. Many people I have encountered have felt that from track #7 on, the album is filler. But I would have to disagree with them. If you can rock out to ballads as well as up-beat songs, then you will love this album.

I came across this band on the radio, and instantly fell in love with their first single, "On & On." I purchased the CD and I was taken away! Number One Gun blends guitars and drums in a truly creative way, and they connect it together with lyrics that inspire. Check out their songs "Starting Line," "The Last Time," and "Hear This." "These Things" is a beautiful ballad and compliments the rest of their more rock songs nicely. Their live shows are also very passionate, driving, and moves me like only a few bands can. As their title "Celebrate Mistakes" suggests, this album taught me that life is about the imperfections... it's what we do with those "mistakes" that matters the most.
