"Providing Hope Through Music"

Providing hope through music

David Mills began playing guitar and composing songs when he was 16 years old. His dad taught him the basics of guitar, but he learned everything else on his own. Now 24, Mills is living in Peoria Illinois and has his own band — Long Ladder Home.

Long Ladder Home is a group focused on community outreach. They have performed at cancer benefits, honor fight benefits, community festivals and parades, and have even been on Christian radio stations. They are not a Christian band, though all of their music is positive and uplifting for listeners spreading messages of hope and love.

A year after starting the group, Justin Endsley joined the group on drums. He has been involved with music since he was young boy. Levi Lemothe joined the group just last year.

Together the three perform all over the state; last year they even performed in Kentucky. Mills believes that life is the best inspiration for music because in music people can find clarity and begin to understand themselves.

The songs they sing focus on real life events. The idea behind Long Ladder Home is to bring people of all ages, color, creeds, and places, to connect through positivity and hope — because there is hope. Whether it is an addiction, depression, bullying, hopelessness, or anything else, there is always hope.

This Peoria based rock band takes influence from The Lumineers, Phillip Phillips. The Goo Goo Dolls, and Petty giving them a very unique alternative sound.

Coasts, their most recent release was a song written to commemorate the life of a young girl who is no longer with us. This beautifully composed song is a call for hope for those who feel like giving up. [Lyrics to Coast at the top of this article]

With a heavy online presence, constant progression and a professional level of effort, Long Ladder Home is perfect for any Venue, Festival or Concert.

LLH played in Milwaukee, WI with Sam Llanas (formerly of the Bodeans) at River Rhythms as well as in LaSalle, IL at the Uptown Bar's Playlist Theater (with Sam), both in 2014.

They also traveled to play in Harrodsburg, KY for the Good Vibrations Festival in 2015.
