Salvation Air Force was formed in 1972 by Donnie Gossett and along with his brother, Michael Gossett, toured across Western Canada and the Midwest U.S. The brothers released their first album through Larry Norman on Myrrh Records in 1978 and followed it with 3 self-produced projects Zero Avenue, Prayer Warriors On Parade and Not Sleep Music.

The brothers continued to work in writing songs, plays and musicals as well as performing music in over 20 countries.

SAF reunited in 2004 for the Back-to-the-Blues Festival. In 2005 recorded their first SAF album in 25 years entitled "Bleed The Dream." Joining them from 1972 are Ron Stelting, Leon Rogers and Chuck Kenyon along with Donnie's son, Jordan Gossett and keyboardist Jason Garrett for a mix of rock, blues and funk with a little humour.
