AJ DEGRASSE, singer-songwriter, worship leader - brings a unique and sophisticated piano
style, a broad soulful voice, and a tenderness of spirit. Growing up in San Diego, CA, his
influences ranged from Ray Charles to Bruce Hornsby to Marc Cohn and Sting. He began
with classical piano training then later jazz, film music, and composition studies at university.
At the age of 20, AJ heeded the call to devote his life to music-making, especially in the
context of mission and ministry. For the past 12 years he has served in churches as worship
leader and led team music missions abroad. He currently lives in Long Beach, CA.

CHRIS PAUL OVERALL (CPO), singer-songwriter, worship leader - came up in Irving, Texas
in a family of music makers. His father Robin is a professional guitarist & songwriter and his
sister Sara a major recording artist in Los Angeles. Chris is blessed with an enormous vocal
range, beauty and control that feed the transparent desperation in the music he sings and
the worship he leads. In 2006 he met AJ at a performance in Southern California and struck
a friendship that came to reveal a shared love for singing the old hymns. Thus began The
Hymns Collaboration. CPO resides in Long Beach, CA. www.chrispauloverall.com
