Chuck Elmore is a singer, songwriter, and worshiper of Jesus. A preacher's kid, he was born in Texas in the early 70's to parents who told Chuck plenty that Jesus loved him. A parental decision to prohibit Chuck, his big sis Delena, and his kid bro Clark from watching TV during childhood resulted in a fascination with and love of music. Dad got him interested in listening to music deeply, Mom got him started on guitar, and sis got him to sing in public. Chuck started writing songs and playing live in college, and has recorded several independent solo projects since then.
Chuck spends his precious few free hours with his fantastic wife Becky and their three beautiful daughters. They have an amazing church family at New Life City in Albuquerque, New Mexico where Chuck serves as an associate pastor and oversees the worship ministry.
Josh combines his story of God’s grace in his life, humor and God given talent to connect with his audiences. Using a rare technique called hybrid picking, he borrows heavily from classical, fingerstyle, percussive, and contemporary picking and strumming styles to make the guitar a true stand-alone instrument. He often plays 2 or 3 guitar parts at the same time incorporating the bass line, rhythm and melody to make the guitar sound like multiple instruments. He applies this style to create arrangements of worship songs and hymns with the goal of inspiring people to worship God through the beauty of these instrumental pieces. He serves the Lord full time, touring with his wife Sarah and 2 boys across the Western United States sharing music and testimony at churches. Sarah also often shares her love of Jesus through passionate testimony and frequently leads a few worship songs as part of morning services and concerts.
