Born and raised in Centerburg, Ohio, Tyler Ross' goal with his music is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to those who hear. Since Tyler was very young, he had a passion for music. He plays drums, acoustic guitar, and bass for his Church. John Donne once wrote, "Human beings necessarily depend on one another, as in, You can't manage this all by yourself; no man is an island." Tyler uses this quote in daily life. He believes music can make one another connect more than a conversation will. Ross believes God can and will use him to further his kingdom with music. Though, he hasn't made any records, he plans to someday write his own music and pursue his passion for music.

Jacob Lones is a 21 year-old up and coming artist from rural Ohio.  While his day job is in construction, his passion has been music from a very young age.

The Wayfarers, hailing from rural Southeast Ohio, emerged onto the scene in early 2010 playing their own form of American Roots music. While much of their repertoire is drawn from the Appalachian tradition they revere, The Wayfarers fuse tight musicianship - centered largely by the fiddle - with the high energy that characterized early mountain music. With old-time radio shows setting the example, their style encompasses Appalachian dance music, traditional mountain fiddle tunes, and pre-bluegrass music of the 1920's - resulting in a dose of nostalgic Americana. Their spirited approach to live performance is infectious, and people of all ages are drawn in to the sounds of thumping washtub bass, driving guitars, sawing fiddles, and rich harmonies. Whether it's at a large festival or barn square dance, a rock venue or a busy street corner, The Wayfarers continue to carry this music forward with creativity and authenticity, making it contemporary and fun.
