Koine are a band of award winning musicians, singers-songwriters of contemporary Christian / Worship music.
Originally formed in 2003 as a worship band, Koiné quickly, and quite unexpectedly, began to gain a grassroots following as requests for appearances and sales of their first album, Koiné (Self-Titled) started to roll in.
Since that time, local events turned into regional tours, and now Koiné travels the United States and Canada sharing their unique music ministry. Koiné has truly found a niche for themselves. Much of their music already has a welcome home in traditional worship, but with a modern sound that anyone can identify with.
Koiné released their fifth full-length album, The Vine, in August 2011.
Koiné (Self-Titled), Gesangbuch, Church Bells, The Vine, and Anno Domini are available for download on iTunes, with CDs available from the band’s website,www.koinemusic.com
