Frequently Asked Questions
What does “Psallos” mean?
Our name comes from the Greek word psallo, a term usually translated in the Bible as “to make melody” or “to sing.” It occurs five times in the New Testament: Romans 15:9, 1 Corinthians 14:15 (twice), Ephesians 5:19, and James 5:13. The passage in Ephesians was our main source of inspiration for choosing it. Here, Paul instructs believers about the importance of the church singing and how it should be done: “…be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Paul’s words encapsulate our desire to lead others in making melody to the Lord and singing songs to one another, and we thought it was a fitting banner under which to labor.
How do you pronounce “Psallos”?
We pronounce “Psallos” as psal’-los, with a silent “p” and long “o”. We're not first-century Greeks, so who knows if that's the way it should be pronounced, but it's how we like to say it.
Do you perform concerts? How do I book you?
We love playing live shows and have had the honor of sharing Romans, Hebrews, and Jude with churches across the country. As our band members have gotten older and started having families of their own, it has become increasingly difficult to get away from home and travel to do shows. However, we are open to new requests. If you would like to inquire about the possibility of us performing one of our albums live, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you ship overseas?
Although we do not offer that service on our website, you can reach out to us about overseas orders: email@example.com.
Can I perform your music live in our church services?
Yes! Most of our music is registered with CCLI.
