Saved Alone started with Drew Creal's vision of mixing melodic, hard rock and progressive elements with rich vocal harmonies. Drew soon recruited best friend and Grove Street Worship band drummer Mike Himes in 2006. Mike has been very devoted and has stuck around through thick and thin. Drew then tried to add various other musicians to the band which ended up with just Drew on guitar and lead vocals, Steffan Zarakas on bass and vocals and Mike Himes on Drums and vocals. The three had been writing songs together and playing shows in the DeKalb area for about a year when Steffan left the band due to commitment issues. Steffan now plays in a Paw Paw, Illinois band called The Fallen. Drew then recruited childhood friend Kyle Douglas to play bass. Kyle attended Full Sail recording school in Florida and has two years of experience behind the mixing desk. Kyle was up for the challenge and was ready to be fully committed to Saved Alone. The band is currently practicing, recording and booking shows in the Chicago area...two of the members (Mike and Drew) are soldiers at the Dekalb, IL Salvation Army.
