Innerspirit Project started in the ’70s as Innerspirit with Dwayne Crenshaw on drums and his brother Marc Johnson on guitar/bass followed by Marvin Sheats on guitar/bass a few months later and Kirby Willis on bass soon afterward.

They started out playing R&B then moved quickly into the world of Rock and Roll playing songs from Jimi Hendrix to Deep Purple and acquiring Jonathan (Corky) Meadows on keyboards. Innerspirit then began to explore Jazz/Fusion. They were totally inspired by the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Tony Williams Lifetime, Brand X, Chick Corea and Return To Forever, Herbie Hancock, and many more jazz/fusion artists.

Innerspirit went through a number of personnel changes through the years eventually disbanding. Fast forward over 20 years later; three of the original members of Innerspirit decided that they needed to make music again. Innerspirit began to pretty much pick up where they left off but with one change…

Innerspirit is now called Innerspirit Project.

Innerspirit Project is a jazz/funk Christian band that is geared to bringing positive messages in our music to everyone. Their goal is to provide music for the soul that takes you to that other place. Please check back often for updates and music links. They are currently working on their first CD Project which will come out in the fall!
