The Band

Currently based in the vibrant city of Vancouver, BC, Stands on Sapphires is a symphonic hard rock trio driven by the unwavering faith and passion of husband and wife, lead vocalist Bethany Rose and guitarist Trevor Isaac, alongside their best friend and bassist, Wade Britz. The band has carved out a niche for themselves with their unique sound deemed “Anthemic Dark Rock”.

Formed in obedience to a higher calling in 2019, Trevor and Bethany, both devout Christians, embarked on a musical journey to share their faith through their music. Drawing inspiration from bands like Skillet, Van Halen, Meatloaf, Shinedown, and In This Moment, as well as Periphery and Dream Theater, Stands on Sapphires crafts songs that are equally challenging and empowering, serving as anthems for life’s journey.

With two full albums, several covers, and singles under their belt, SonS is currently hard at work on their highly anticipated third album. Titled “Anhedonia: Death & Resurrection,” this double album has been in the works since late 2022, promising a rich tapestry of musical exploration and emotional depth.

As a female-fronted band, Stands on Sapphires strives to foster a sense of community among their loyal fan base, whom they affectionately refer to as “Gems.” With catchy melodies, riffs, and thought-provoking lyrics, they aim to create a “soundtrack to life” for their listeners, offering a message of hope and resilience in a world in need of inspiration and truth.

“I used to make my family sit down and listen to me sing the entirety of my latest, favorite musical sets when I was 5 or 6. Whether or not I sounded good was of no consequence to me. I just needed to sing my heart out.

I believe I was always meant to be a singer, even if I pushed it down in myself for so many years. I can honestly say that the times I feel the most alive, the times all life’s worries go out the window, and the time I feel the closest to God is when I am singing.”


“I started playing guitar as a little kid and the first thing I was taught was how to read music, BORING! I stopped for close to a decade before rediscovering it in high school. When I learned how to play the main riff of “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne YOU BETTER BELIEVE I was hooked and started practicing for hours each day, worshipping the likes of Nuno Bettencourt, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, EVH and more.

In 10+ years I’ve had many ups and downs in my musical history, but I’m pumped to be writing and putting my own stuff out there finally after years of doubting myself, it just feels right.”


“I grew up listening to a lot of the same music my father did: Pink Floyd, Green Day, Marilyn Manson, you know, normal Dad stuff. It felt pretty natural for me to pick up an instrument in high school, but it wasn’t until I discovered progressive music that I really developed a love for it. Bands like Dream Theater, Rush, and Tool completely changed the way that I viewed how a bass could fit into a song, and I’ve been hooked on the instrument ever since.”
