ERIN MULLINS
Lead Singer

"My three favorite things are singing, sleeping and laughing! I love Jesus, my husband, my pups and my family with all my heart!

FAVORITE QUOTE
"Here, then, is the real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God’s Word not so much
because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work.
Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy." R.C. Sproul

I once played 5 gallon buckets in the streets of Rhode Island and Kentucky for extra money for summer.

RYAN NANNEY
Rhythm Guitar

"I’m an only child. Other than that, I’m very spontaneous and fun loving; I’m also perfectly fine sitting around not doing anything at all. Being willing to try new things is very important to me. It doesn’t take much to amuse me, but it takes a lot more to make me laugh."

I’m not very coordinated and I trip a lot but have a couple of killer dance moves (ask Erin and Ryan…it’s true!) I like to stay up late at night. I try to never take myself too seriously…I feel like people miss out on a lot of good laughs that way."
