Jesse Smith

Contemporary

Jesse Smith is a memeber of Presence Music, which is a faith-filled collection of artists from Duluth, MN. They are co-lead by industry veteran Jesse Paul Smith, who has worked with Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, and Channing Tatum. He has released an album produced by Cole Walowac of Capital Kings, and performed on stages nationally and internationally for over fifteen years. Presence Music was formed when co-lead vocalists Brandon and Leah Monson joined with Jesse and area worship veterans Dan and Cheri Gaylen and Nik Wourms to help believers find more hope and joy in God’s presence. As a group, they have opened for national Christian acts such as Stars Go Dim, Influence Music, I Am They, and “The Voice” Winner Jordan Smith. You will also find them routinely leading worship and speaking at large Christian camps, music festivals, and retreats all over the Midwest. Their mission as a band is to make it really hard to miss out on Jesus at any event they lead.

 

Lost Evidence

Lost Evidence is a rock band from the twin cities, mn. 

We push the limits of what a rock band can be, having 3 guitar players, using a 7 string guitar, double kicks and 3 vocalists. Having played over 20 shows over the past year, including opening for national touring acts, we have a loyal following in the midwest.

Debut album Expectations is bound to be released this summer. 

First single Tinder is available on all streaming services. 

Un-band

The Un-Band is a regrouping of some of the people that played together over the years. We cross musical boundaries in styles of music, all of it to praise and worship our Lord and Savior.

Jass Couch

R&B Spoken Word, Funk & Hip Hop

I have been singing, writing, and playing music for as long as I can remember, but I started releasing my original music at the end of 2019. I did covers on YouTube for quite some time, but it has always been a dream to pursue music and share my original work. My first project At the Close of a Decade was recorded on my iPad with my apple headphones. Music is something I'm really passionate about, so I found a way to make it happen. As a kid, I sang in the school/church choir and was heavily involved in band and orchestra. I learned to play the keyboard, flute, saxophone, viola, and during quarantine I started teaching myself the bass guitar. My music style is heavily influenced by my family and incorporates a lot of genres. I have a soulful, chill, eclectic, soft, yet powerful sound. With one project and a small EP out, I've constantly been working on new music since and cannot wait to share more with the world. *Temporary photo from Jass's Instagram page.
