Singer/songwriter Nathan Sheridan made a commitment to Christ when he was 14, and three years later, after graduation, enlisted in the National Guard where he served six years. While deployed in Kuwait, Nathan led worship for fellow soldiers, providing a foundation that impacts his ministry today. Produced by Jeremy Holderfield, ‘Broken With You’ features “Loves Like That,” the project’s buoyant first single. “Even when you don’t feel perfect or you don’t feel like you’re worthy of love from man, you’ve been made in God’s image, and He loves you because He created you,” Sheridan explains of the song’s message. “When you can’t find love in other places, you can find love in Him. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved perfectly.”
Residing in Nashville, Tennessee, Natalie Layne writes, produces, and releases her own music. She leads worship at Ethos Church, and is completing her degree in Commercial Music.

After releasing singles “Burn Every Ship,” “Gracious,” and “You,” Natalie began creating the full album ‘Be Human’ that was released on July 3rd, 2020.

A lot of artists talk about chasing their dreams but for Christian recording artist Mark Schultz, it’s never been about the chase. Instead, it’s about following God’s call. Incidentally, this has led to what looks like any artist’s dream: two million records sold to date, ten No. 1 singles, a Dove Award as well as multiple nominations. Despite his success, the birth of his son has caused him to take a break from music. Schultz and his wife now have three kids, ages six, four and two. And while he is still following the call of fatherhood, God’s call has also led Schultz back to music with a new energy, new perspective and a new album aptly titled Follow.
