GloryBeToGod is the concept project of TJ Woodard. It is an overall story driven music project about his past, present and future. This project is meant to give glory and honor to God while sharing the total transformation of one man's life.
The idea of this project was in the background of my mind for years. I wanted to create music based on more than one style, and have to worry about expectations.
At first, I was thinking on a band level, but it didn't work out, mostly because of the lack of background knowledge.
My first shot at a solo project was in 2008. I put together a few very simple demos under the name Theater of the Shades, but I wasn't really satisfied with them, so I dropped the whole thing due to lack of motivation and experience. Of course I kept on experimenting.
