As we navigate through these difficult times, Jeff Senour and his band Called To Serve (otherwise known as CTS) wanted to help bring us all together with as much kindness and gratitude into the world the best way they knew how; music. So they set out to write and record a record that encompassed hope, love, compassion, spirituality and of course kindness. The result is half a dozen tracks that found a home on their 2020 EP ‘Angels And Miracles.’
‘Angels And Miracles’ is a melodic rock record filled with contagious hooks and lyrics that are both captivating and meaningful. Every song has some of Jeff’s life experiences sewn in and the music is the tool to plant a seed in the hearts and minds of our listeners to strive to make each day the best it can be. ‘Angels And Miracles’ features a myriad of songs that include ones about cherishing every day (“One Life”), the struggle between good and evil (“War”), and the self-explanatory “Miracles” that expresses the band’s belief in the miracles that surround us.
The main goal of CTS has always been for the band to pass along a message of the American dream through music. The band’s dedication to their country’s military, police, firefighters, and first responders has placed their music in numerous festivals, military events, fundraisers, and charities across the nation.
That includes being featured at the acclaimed NAAM Music Convention in 2013, performing in the Pentagon for veterans, in churches and at schools across the nation, and even being invited to perform at a concert for Ray Chavez, the oldest Pearl Harbor Survivor who was celebrating his 105th birthday at the time. On top of their numerous performances, Jeff Senour and CTS have also hit the Top 50 with their single “Can’t Get Off This Train,” taken home Song and Video of the Year from the Military Writers Society, and appeared on TV and radio throughout the nation.

Raised in Southern California with the belief instilled in him by his parents that he could do anything he set his mind to, Senour did just that. Before music came to be his life, he was flying high in various degrees. His work initially led him to join the Screen Actors Guild as an aerial film pilot. With that, he did work on Blockbusters such as ‘True Lies,’ ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ and many more. From there he worked as an Aerial Director around the world and saw even more of the globe as a Captain for Southwest Airlines, which he recently retired from at 25 years of service. All of his time traveling in and out of the air played a big role in inspiring his musician’s pen. From the sights to the various cultures to the people he came across, each drove his creativity throughout.
With all that inspiration from his work running through him, Senour decided it was time to make some major music moves, and that’s how CTS came to be over 15 years ago. Jeff Senour rounded out his band with a trio of talented musicians. Joe McGinnity’s skills on the drums have been with him since he was a kid and he never fails to bring that lifelong energy to the stage. Taking on the bass, keyboards and backup vocals is the dynamic music teacher/rock star, Jerry Nuzum. Then there’s the youngest member of the CTS family, Dylan Elliott. Senour refers to him as not only “gifted” but a “thrill to watch” play.
