Jessica was born into a family of deep faith and of rich musical history in the heart of Virginia. Every Sunday morning, this great granddaughter of a fiery Pentecostal minister would watch from the pews as her mother would direct the choir at the Church of the Brethren her family attended.
In 2011, she stepped out in faith and left the comfort of her small hometown, Bridgewater, and hit the road to Nashville. Her years in Music City were formative for both in ministry and in songwriting. A new dependence on God, involvement with an inner city missions base, and growing favor with songwriters and accomplished producers would all help Jessica find her voice as an artist and worship leader. In 2017, Jessica would leave Nashville with a five song independently released EP under her belt, multiple regional tours and invaluable industry and ministry experiences.
On September 14, 2018, Jessica released and toured “Honestly”, a four song EP she describes as “a collection of vulnerable songs that do not shy away from the reality of my hardest life experiences while celebrating the hope I found in Jesus through it all.” The Spring of 2019 took Jessica home again to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia after seven years of following the journey that music led her on.
Todd Schlabach has been performing live for over 10 years in the local music scene. His front man position in bands has been successful in recording music, performing along the East Coast, and sharing shows with Tim Reynolds, POD, Victoria Pratt Keating, Everything and the Pat McGee Band – to name a few. With the acoustic guitar as his main focus, he is currently lighting up the solo music scene playing one of a kind instrumentals, originals and covers. Using every part of the guitar, a sampler, and some effects, a single guitar in Todd’s hands sounds like multiple guitars overlaying each other. Todd’s popularity and reputation have grown tremendously in the surrounding area. As one follower put it, “It’s simple, Todd’s performance makes a dull club a happening one.”
