When Christian singer-songwriters Christa Wells & Nicole Witt create together, songs are born that reflect both art & faith with integrity. When they unite voices and instruments in live performance, what happens is a unique fusion of Christa’s gentle indie-folk-pop and Nicole’s compelling country-bluegrass style.
With simple instrumentation – piano and violin – they speak truth and love and lead listeners to worship and deeper understanding of the Gospel. Their common passion is to honor God by loving His people and making music that matters.
Christa Wells’ poignant lyrics and melodies have captivated listeners in songs recorded by artists such as Plumb, Point of Grace, Selah, and Sara Groves. In 2006, she was recognized as GMA “Songwriter of the Year” for her song “Held,” released by Natalie Grant. Christa has released two solo albums to date. “Frame the Clouds,” released in 2009, includes performances by Sara Groves, Plumb, Nicole Witt, and Todd Smith (Selah.) 2011’s “How Emptiness Sings” includes songs featured in Under the Radar’s list of Top Gourmet Songs (first half of 2011).
Nicole Witt is an accomplished writer, whose songs have been recorded by artists such as George Strait, Lauren Alaina, Rodney Atkins, Terri Clark, and Point of Grace. Her work on George Strait’s album helped propel that album to CMA and Grammy awards for “Album of the Year” and “Country Album of the Year,” respectively. Nicole has recorded four albums that highlight her songwriting ability andtalent as a performer. In 2011, her song “Trains I Missed” was named “Song of the Year” at the International Bluegrass Awards.
After four years of writing and performing together, Christa and Nicole released their first joint recording, a 5-song EP of original worship music. Image of God began with the composition of the title track for a retreat they would co-host with author/speaker Ann Voskamp and has been described as “an incredibly tender worship offering to God.” (Kevin Davis, www.newreleasetuesday.com). Both feel incredibly blessed to be given the opportunity to sing for the glory of God.
