Biography

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Christy Nockels was born in Ft. Worth, Texas and raised in Oklahoma as the daughter of a pastor and a piano teacher. She met her future husband and musical collaborator, Nathan Nockels, in 1993 at a Christian artists seminar. The two married in 1995 and began writing the songs that would make up their debut album, Holy Roar, recorded with longtime friends Charlie and Kimber Hall and released under the billing Sons and Daughters. Upon relocating back to Texas, the duo was championed and eventually signed by Rocketown Records, a small label owned by Grammy Award-winning CCM artist Michael W. Smith. They relocated again to Nashville in 1998 and formed the highly successful Watermark, releasing five albums that resulted in both significant chart success and a handful of Dove Awards. In 2009, Christy launched a solo career with her debut album, Life Light Up, on Six Steps Records. Into the Glorious, her follow-up album, arrived in 2012 and reached number two on Billboard's Christian Albums chart. After 2015's live offering Let It Be Jesus, Christy returned to the studio to record her third album, The Thrill of Hope, which was released on the Nockels' own imprint, Keepers Branch Records. In 2017 she delivered the full-length Be Held: Lullabies for the Beloved, featuring songs that originated as lullabies sung to her own children. ~ James Christopher Monger
