I've been playing guitar, singing and writing music since I was 14 years old.
I learned to play guitar on a six-string that my parents paid for with money saved over many years in a coin jug.
I sing for Jesus. I write songs for Him and about the wonderful life he has given me. My prayer is that my music be an instrument of healing, hope and peace for all who hear it.
Joe Chuckra & Richard John Lutz
Messiah's Light The musical talents of Joe Chuckra & Richard John Lutz are a story of renewal. The two had played
together in a church folk group in the 70's each going their own way musically.
It wasn't until a friend who needed his words put to music that the two were reunited as a team. They each poured over their own music adding and renewing what once was, into something new.
Less Of Us
The members of Less Of Us came together as members of a worship team from Faith Assembly of God church in North East PA. Soon the Holy Spirit took over and led us on a journey to evangelize outside the church.
The name implies in order for us to hear from God, we need to become less and He needs to become more. Hence the title of our first album is More of Him. The Lord tells us we are to plant seed from the “first” of our abundance, thus our first album is appropriately titled “More of Him”
Members of this group come from a variety of musical backgrounds such as Rock n Roll, Jazz, Blues, and Latin styles. One would think that a group with such diverse musical styles and talents they would not be able to agree on the direction of their music. But the Lord has a plan, and as long as we realize we are less, more of Him shines through our music. We are blessed to offer our talents as a first fruit offering to the Lord. We hope you will be blessed by our music.

Seasons is comprised of the siblings Mary-Kate Spring, Peter Winter, Mary-Teresa Summer, Mary-Grace Autumn, and Mary-Clare Chun Lee. The Lee siblings seek to not only pay homage to the rich tradition of Celtic and American folk music that they grew up in, but also to treat it as a living, breathing entity. The result is a constantly growing collection of original
songs and tunes that are all at once both fresh and familiar.
While the instrumentation of the band remains centered around the Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer, over the years the band has added violin, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, penny whistle and piano. Seasons has recorded multiple albums, “Eventide Lullabye” (2006), “Which Way to
Dublin Town” (2009), and collaborated with Mary-Kate on her solo album “Mirabilis”(2010).
In March of 2012, Seasons released "Amhrain," a collection of traditional and original Irish airs followed by their return to Christmas music with "Joy on High" released in December of that same year. 2014 saw the release of their self-titled album "Seasons" comprised completely of original songs and tunes. These albums have received recognition in publications such as Musicmaker’s Magazine, Catholic Digest, Christianity Today, and Grapevine Online, and also have been played on regional and national radio. Their song “The Helmsman,” based on a poem by St. Faustina, was selected as one of the songs on the highly anticipated audio recording of St. Faustina’s Diary.

Eddy Mann's a... musician, songwriter, teacher, speaker,coach, husband, and father... whether you know him as one or more of these people, you know his heart; you know his love for life.
Though his past has been playful and colorful at times, it also has been constant in its vision. It's always been a vision of hope, peace and understanding through the eyes of a loving heart.
Eddy's led worship in Huntingdon Valley, PA for over fifteen years. As a musician and songwriter it was twenty years ago that he made the decision to offer his creative gifts to God. Since then he's released five CD's and written countless songs for the church.
On any weekend you can find him in a coffeehouse, in concert, at a conference, and leading worship.
I started singing at age 3, and haven't stopped yet! When I was 12, I began playing the violin. That soon led to the guitar and eventually the mandolin. In high school, I began to write songs for Folk Masses and other church services. Ignoring a strong calling to compose full time, I actively pursued a career in theatre, film, radio and TV.
I have performed with professional regional theatres such as Center Stage, Alaska Repertory Theatre and Meadowbrook Theatre. I was a principal cast member of the Emmy award winning TV series for PBS called Once Upon a Town. In 1980 I joined the theatre faculty of the Baltimore School for the Arts and since 1981 I have been a member of the Interact Story Theatre.
In 1994 my original calling to compose meditational songs of a spiritual nature could be ignored no longer. Turning the process over to God, I spent 4 years composing music and began recording in 1998. With the guidance and support of my husband, Pete Baden, I have recorded and produced 7 albums since then; all of which are receiving airplay throughout the world. What a journey. God has prepared me for this role all these years

Praise and worship singer and songwriter from New Jersey,
Terry Dunne combines christian contemporary elements with country music flavor in his collection of original songs that reflect God's presence in our lives.
As a songwriter, it has been said that Kevin Heider’s form follows his substance.
Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Kevin’s unique and malleable indie-folk/rock sound is coupled with a lyrical form that explores, from the heights to the depths, what it means to be human. And he is self-taught on every instrument he plays – primarily guitar, piano, and harmonica.
In July of 2008, Kevin was personally selected by Ingrid Michaelson as the winner of Gibson’s “The Way I Am Contest” on MusicNation.com. His original compositions have since
appeared in radio jingles, film documentaries, theatrical productions, television shows, and commercials, and his music has taken him as far as Europe and New Zealand.
Gary (Guild) Kuchinski
Gary K. Hails from New York but has since settled in Pennsylvania.
He has semi retired from music, but has been known at random to play out and about here and there. His spirit shines through in his music and we are honored to call him friend.
Born and raised in southern Maine, Josh Houde began playing guitar near the beginning of high school to lead music for a youth prayer meeting. Almost as soon as he began playing, he also began composing. In the beginning, there were many episodes of completing a song, being very proud of it, and then realizing that it was basically the same tune as some song he had heard on the radio. Oh well it’s got to start somewhere. Eventually, however, he developed a number of original songs, and many of them made it onto this debut album.
This album emerged from a number of personal experiences—some awkward, most spiritual, and all deserving of a song. Participating in music ministry at Franciscan University of Steubenville (2003-2007) and putting music to the psalms at Mass was a key contributing factor to Josh’s musical development. When a
complete stranger heard Josh playing during a summer conference in Steubenville and gave him $500 towards recording a CD, Josh leapt at the opportunity, and spent several weeks of August, 2007 in the recording studio. The resulting project, “Let My Desires Sing,” features a wide variety of styles—passionate rock,
heartfelt worship, and biblical humor. If there is one phrase to capture the album, it might be “heartfelt passion”—expressing itself in a variety of ways
Chris has been traveling nationally, leading worship, speaking, and giving concerts for youth and adults since 1992.
He has served in all aspects of pastoral ministry throughout his career. Chris has had the joy
of working with students, leading worship teams, teaching small group discipleship, and serving a church plant as the lead pastor.

Heaven Bound is presently a quintet, with two of the members- Liz Collins and Pete Boglino- from the band “Foxfire” that had its origins in the mid-1990s. In those days Foxfire was featured on the Enviro-Aid CD, which also included international artists such as Kathy Sledge (Sister Sledge) and Rick Emmett (Triumph). Due to publicity surrounding this release, the band made an appearance on the Fox Morning Show and gained airplay on several Philadelphia area radio stations. Heaven Bound can tailor their set list to any audience and are always looking for different avenues to spread their message. They are at home in a secular or Christian environment, but will always remain true to their calling.
With Christ as their guiding light and rock, only God knows where this band might go, making a little noise and spreading the message of Jesus Christ thru song and praises. “Bound for Heaven” and living for that “Glorified Body” is their anticipation while still living on this earth …AMEN !!
