Intro post

We thank the LORD for all His many blessings. HeartStrings formed in July of 2015. In that short time the LORD has opened doors in ways we could never have imagined. In this short time we have performed at 15 services and traveled countless miles. Patrick, Janessa, and Brandon have also continued their college careers. Kaleb has continued to actively pursue his impressive music career. The LORD has granted us traveling mercies and strength to accomplish all these tasks while maintaining our travels with the band.

Now for a little history about the formation of the band:

Recently, Patrick and Janessa believed that the LORD was directing them to start a music ministry. For years they sang in the local churches of the Union Mission Conference. Patrick would play the piano and Janessa would sing. They remember, as nervous little kids getting up in front of their home church and performing Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. They continued to perform hymns while merging the traditional style with the unique sound they began to develop. Towards the end of their duo years, the LORD began to anoint Janessa to write songs that merged a contemporary sound with traditional wording and deep Biblical truths.  As she wrote more songs, the quickly realized that these songs needed a band behind them. Therefore, after some prayer and financial consideration, the LORD quickly opened doors and led them to hire musicians to play drums and acoustic bass. These instruments added a firm foundation to the style they had already developed.
