Cadence is a 5 piece Christian rock band comprised of all family members: Donny Karpinen (lead vocals/ guitar/keys), his sister Carrie Karpinen (drummer), and his wife Brittany Karpinen (vocals) make up three of the five. Jeffrey Sward (bass) and Andrew Sward (lead electric guitar) are brothers and are both siblings of Brittany Karpinen (maiden name Sward). Yeah we know… it’s confusing to us too.
Cadence writes and performs music that is both commercial and congregational. The band started out as and remains a significant part of their church, Victory Church in Boca Raton, FL. Cadence has shared the stage with artists that include Casting Crowns, Tenth Avenue North, Matt Redman, Sanctus Real, and many more. The band hits the stage with high energy performances, but they are just as passionate about Jesus’ mandate to be servants of all first and foremost, and this is evident through their daily lives as musicians and Christians.
