I write all styles, just depends on what I'm inspired by. But I'd say I mostly write Christian & Country. Within the Christian genre it could be ballads, pop & a folk style.
My goal is to get songs on radio. I'm also contemplating putting out my own EP so I can do music with a purpose.
I currently don't have a website, which is also a goal for the future.
I'm the youngest of 5 and have amazing parents that have been together for 44 years. I'm extremely close to my family. Not just my immediate family but my second and third cousins as well. I was born and raised in St. Louis MO. I moved to Nashville the first time in 2004 but went back to St. Louis in 2006 due to health reasons. Fast forward to 2011 and I found myself back in Nashville again.
I've always been a songwriter since as young as I can remember but thought it was just a dream. We always had a music playing in the house I grew up and we all took piano but outside of that, no one in my family plays professionally so I'm kind of the one who came out of nowhere to really go after anything having to do with music. It wasn't till almost 2 years ago when God told me to do this for Him and that it wasn't about me, that I really started pursuing writing.
My spiritual walk:
I was raised in a Christian home where God was definitely the center, but it wasn't until I was 19 that the head knowledge went to my heart and God showed me I need a Savior. He is number one in my life. I will not compromise my faith & I will not back down from the Bible. In a world where people are doing what is right in their own eyes, we have to be strong enough to stand in the truth. They are just as lost as I once was, it just looks different. And they need truth.
I've been attending the Village Chapel for about a little over a year. I've done 2 Bible studies through the church, have done volunteer work & am currently praying about going on a mission trip to the Amazon with my church in March next year. I just finished a Precept study as well apart from the church. I believe in studying the word! It's life, it's breath, it's God right before us in every page.
Hello and blessings in the name of our Lord Jesus,
My name is Tony Nobles and welcome to my web page. My lovely and beautiful wife and I currently live in Clarksville, Tennessee. We are preparing to move to the Nashville area as worship, prayer, and teaching missionaries to Tennessee. We are working with the Nashville House of Prayer and Worship City Prayer to intercede for revival, and to empower and inspire the local church to committed prayer. I have been a bi-vocational minister for many years, and I founded and lead the Clarksville House of Prayer as the Executive Director.
My hobbies and interests include music, studying theology, and backpacking.
To restore the Tabernacle of David by imparting a spirit-led environment based out of community that allows for deep communion with God through organic prayer and worship.
My Mission is based on the great commission from Jesus Christ.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
To go to people, cities, and nations and to make them disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming that all authority in heaven and on earth has be given to Jesus Christ, baptize them, and to teach all to obey everything Jesus Christ commands.

Jesus Christ is Lord! I desire to return invested talents to the Master when He returns. I desire to lead His flock in praise to this King of kings and Lord of lords. The Son of God met me along a dark road and set my feet on a new path of life. He gave me hope when I had found the bottom of a dark place. Jesus Christ is eminent and lifted up, and I will sing until my last breath for His glory.

Pam and George Meyer NY
Hi. Welcome to our One Came Down site. Thanks for visiting.
A bit of history: George and Pamela started One Came Down about a year after being born again while attending Calvary Chapel Orange County, where we were both on the worship team under the direction of Pastor Jim Young. We, along with our son George, are currently on the worship team at our home church–Calvary Chapel Grace Fellowship in Tuxedo, NY.
We had both played for years in secular rock bands including Bob Seger, Meatloaf, Ian Hunter/Mick Ronson Band, Corky Laing, Melanie, Spirit, The Flirts, Genya Ravan, and The Blackberry Blues Band to name a few; but the heart of worship captured us and we began writing songs to worship and glorify God. The name of the band came to Pamela…and we were off and running!
We both wrote and wrote and prayed and prayed for an opportunity to get into the studio to record our new music. Our desire was to record at Shore Fire Studios in Longbranch, NJ with our friend and brother in the Lord Joe DeMaio. The story of how God made that possible is amazing…more on that later. (see Stories and Testimony page)
Once the studio was set we did not hesitate for a second to call on David Meyers and Jim Verdi to record with us. David and Jim are the bass player and drummer in The Blackberry Blues Band. Both are life long friends and great Christian brothers–not to mention fantastic musicians. On guitars we have been unbelievably blessed to have our son G. George playing with us. On two of the songs we enlisted the aid of another dear friend, believer, and incredible sax player Tommy (Taco) LaBella.
The sessions went well, but slowly, interrupted by a bout of cancer, and attacked by the enemy in numerous ways, but finally the CD is finished!!
The CD is available on CD Baby, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes. It is currently for sale at Calvary Chapel Grace Fellowship, Calvary Chapel Milford, and Calvary Chapel Northern Valley. We continue to work to get it placed in more churches and, hopefully, some local outlets. You can also see and hear them on this site and, if you drop us a line, we’ll figure out a way to get them to you from here as well!
God bless you all. God’s grace and peace,
George and Pam Meyer
Denise Pass VA
Formerly a music performance major on full scholarship at the University of Maryland when she came to know Christ as her savior, God began to give her songs on the piano. Denise’s debut album, “Just Fine”, released in 2002, launched her music and speaking ministry in the Mid-Atlantic states. The track, “Comfort to the Weary”, received airplay on radio stations in Pennsylvania and New York and was an all-day feature on KKLA Radio in Los Angeles, bringing comfort to listeners in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Denise’s sophomore album, “Praying For You” included tracks such as “Reign in Me” that received airplay in 11 states all across the mid-Atlantic region. This CD received Album of the Year from the Independent Gospel Music Association, during which time Denise was also a finalist for Inspirational Artist of the Year on IndieHeaven.com.
In 2007 she was awarded first place in the pop/contemporary music category by the President of K-LOVE radio in partnership with the International Music Ministry Association. The winning performance was featured on the TV show “A Night With Champions”. These awards and events seemed to confirm God’s calling on her life in the music ministry.
At the end of 2007, within months of receiving this recognition, Denise’s life was suddenly upended by a personal crisis that tore at the very fabric of her family. In the midst, God delivered a new message in songs flowing from a wounded heart attended to by our living God. Ultimately healing and restoration came that confirmed God’s promise to bring beauty from ashes to His believers. Denise believes that God uses broken vessels to share His love with others and she proclaims this truth to herself and others that, everything God allows in is useful and nothing is wasted in His hands.

Goals As A Christian Musician/Songwriter
As a worship cellist in Tallahassee, I know that the talent HE his has given me is all for our King above, whom we all worship for. He has given me the talent to flow in worship all these years, he is releasing new songs to me.
As a Christian Musician, I want to be used in worship at church, at special events, in other worship bands to glorify Him, and assist singers or bands that need a cello line during their worship recordings -- that will add in sharing the message of their song.
As a Christian Songwriter, I want to complete worship songs he has given me, that will someday be used to glorify Him in churches and by other artists. I want to co-write in completing many of my songs as well as the Lord can enhance the songs with other collaboration, and assist with the distribution to churches and media here and abroad.
I am looking to someday move to Nashville to collaborate with other christian songwriters and be more available to other artists with my cello worship and recordings. I was blessed to attend the Brave Worship Conference at Gateway Church in Franklin this past November, meeting Eric & Krissy Nordhoff, Lydia Walker Athey, other songwriters and worship leaders and members of All About Worship.
Look forward to playing at the Praise in the Park 2017 in Nashville, at true blessing to glorify Him!
Let’s grow together, build lasting friendships, as we worship and write songs for His glory!
Doug Ott FL
Cello for the King (www.cellofortheking.com) – 18 Hymns of Worship (iTunes, Rhapsody, Spotify, Amazon, GooglePlay, CDbaby.com, etc..) – released 2012!
In 2010, the Lord gave me my music name & CD title, “Cello for the King” because it is all about Him. – Psalms 47
Whether you listen during quite meditation, prayer, devotions, or anytime during the day, I pray my music will provide healing, hope, inspiration, comfort, restoration, and joy in your life from the CD, or at your church or event.
I am a worship cellist that plays weekly at my church, (and where the Lord opens doors), as He has given me a high level of cello impromptu for worship with church, worship bands, etc...to play right away with a song I never heard, but bring the song of worship to another level. From being raised in public schools learning cello at age 10, and growing up in Lakeland as First Assembly of God grew to become Carpenter's Home Church, to going to ORU as business major, but they asked me to be Principal cellist in ORU orchestra and playing on Richard Roberts Show specials, to being asked to play patriotic/hymns/worship songs just cello at Gov. Scott's 2011 Inauguration, to playing for pro-life events with Gov. Sarah Palin & Mike Huckabee, playing soft background/worship music solo...I have just gone where the Lord opened doors for Him. As I continue to work full time for the state, but can take time off if needed.
On May 20th, 2011, the “Cello for the King” LIVE recording took place at Evangel Assembly of God in Tallahassee. Nearly 100 were in attendance for this special occasion. My keyboard players, Marc Willams and Norm Munyon who I have played with for the past 20 + years each played and are highlighted on many of the songs.
“As the Spirit Moves” - original song – “recorded and composed LIVE!!
In March of 2011 while traveling with a youth group in Cleveland, Ga, I heard some chords being played at the end of a youth service. Something inside inspired me that these chords could be turned into a special worship song. I shared these chords with my keyboard players and had them play them. I said, “let’s start playing these chords during the LIVE concert,” and play as the Spirit moves. The rest is history, what you hear on this recording was played and arranged LIVE, and the Lord gave us the notes and arrangement for His glory. I pray this song with touch many lives and know this song will be used in other settings where He leads, possibly on a a background track for a film, by another artist, or other special venues.
My day job - I have served in communications, sales and marketing in the private sector, but mostly in the public service career has spanned over 18 years serving organizations with the State of Florida that include Volunteer Florida, Juvenile Justice, Elder Affairs, Commerce, Agriculture and currently I promote and raise funds for our beautiful state forests, as Friends of Florida State Forests Coordinator.
I am blessed with a wonderful wife, Psalmody, which means “singing of the Psalms” and college sons, Doug and Levi.
My purpose is to go where the Lord opens doors with my cello, to record, add to artists’ videos and arrange and co-write worship songs for Christian artists, and perform across the country at special events and services, using my improvisation skills in worship services and concerts.

Married Or Single
Nancy Honeytree Miller IN
Billed simply as "Honeytree" most of her career, the singer's folk rock-soprano style was influenced by mainstream artists such as Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Judy Collins, but her lyrics were largely dealing with one's personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Still, she was somewhat unusual in that some of the songs on her albums were not just dealing with Jesus, but with friends and relationships, the loss of a friend, family memories and, increasingly, the solitary life of an unmarried Christian adult woman. Her songs were intricate and at times, playful. "Hummer, Bummer, Bashmobile" recalled the trials and joys of her first car, using her blue Valiant as a metaphor for friendship, or, some said, Christ. Some of her fans fondly recall the pivotal line, "Sometimes the friends who give the strongest love/are the ones other people don't think much of... but that's the kind of love you need to get you by."
She continued recording throughout the 1970s and toured as a solo artist and with some of the best-known names of the Jesus Movement, such as Phil Keaggy, Mike Johnson, and Mike Warnke. Her third album, Evergreen, is often considered among her best. As her career progressed, Honeytree's style shifted to a classical/bluegrass mix. On October 30, 1983, Honeytree was formally ordained by her church, Calvary Temple, in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. During the 1980s she developed a ministry to single adults, a focus she maintains to this day.[

I spend time teaching and speaking the Word of God as well as lead worship for conferences, retreats, church functions, home gatherings, as well as taking these gifts into the Tennessee State Penitentiary for female inmates.
I'm a songwriter and most definitely a worshipper. I do have a gift in songwriting although I haven't done much of it in the past few years . I feel the Lord is calling me back to it and to do a new recording project. Finding the time is the challenge.
I'm going to night school working on a doctorate in theology, while trying to hold down two jobs and do prison ministry at the same time. Still, I believe 2019 will be bringing even more opportunity for ministry.
Av & Apryl Pinzur TN
I exist for God’s glory. My goals as a songwriter are firstly to please Him in offering a sweet aroma of praise through song. My second goal would be to both encourage and challenge others to desire a deeper relationship with Him, and to grow in their faith, as well as to direct unbelievers to the God who has made them and invites them into relationship with Him. Though I have always been a musician (pianist) and enjoyed composing for piano, my songwriting journey recently began just a year ago when I was in the throws of deep grief from losing my sweet mother to cancer in 2016. I was struggling with a lot of questions and anger and my first song came out of that dark time (“The Shadow”). The Lord has brought me closer to himself and continued to teach me more of who He is, and I continue to write about what I am learning of Him as He reveals Himself through his word. I pray the my songs will encourage others to draw nearer and behold Him as He is.
P.S. I have attached that first song I wrote so that you can hear.
Do You see me here, barely breathing...
I don’t feel prepared for this, in any way at all,
And are your ears deaf to my pleading?
I thought You would be here now to answer when I call
If “You are my Shepherd”, then why do I languish?
If your “Staff is comfort”, why is my soul in anguish?
If “You hold the future in the palm of your hand”, can’t You help me understand?
Walk with me now, ‘cause I’m in the shadow, and I can’t feel You near,
I’m lost is this fear
You can’t leave me now, ‘cause I’m in this darkness, I can’t find my way out,
I’m lost in this doubt
Can You find me, I’m here in this valley
My path is waiting for the Light You said your word would bring
And You promised You’d never leave me
Could it be that here I’m in the “Shadow of Your wing”?
If “You are my refuge”, then why am I shaken?
If “You’re always with me”, why do I feel forsaken?
If “You hold the future in the palm of your hand”, can’t you help me understand?
But I know things aren’t always what they seem, and someday I’ll awaken from this dream,
When this dark is overtaken by the Light,
Where battered shields of faith are traded in for sight,
These tears of pain at long last wiped away,
I’ll look into your face and see there was no better way, no better way...
So I know You’ll give me faith to trust you for today

As a drummer, my goal is not only in serving as a musician on my church's worship team, but also being able to broaden my scope in the performing aspect. Although I dislike calling it a "performance", a certain level must be there during live events such as Praise in the Park. If I can be a very small instrumental part in someone's life changing for the first time, or rekindling an old feeling they had in church when they were younger, that's my way of giving praise and honor back to God for an amazing (and humbling) gift He gave me at birth.

Grant Norsworthy New Zealand
Grant Norsworthy is not another singer who talks too much. He’s a speaker who sings songs. An Aussie/US dual ci>zen - based in Nashville, TN from 2002 to 2018 - Grant achieved considerable success as a professional CCM musician - including a Grammy® nomina>on, a Dove Award, extensive touring, recording and radio hits with bands like PC3 (Paul Colman Trio) and the “forefathers of the modern worship revival” Sonicflood. The pro-muso rollercoaster prepared Grant Norsworthy for a deeper calling. Since late 2007 Grant has ministered in the US, Australia, New Zealand and several other countries around the world as an independent musician and speaker in service of the Chris>an Church. With an engaging blend of story-telling, illustra>ons, solid Bible teaching and songs, Grant skillfully uses his award-winning musicianship, freewheeling wit and uncommon candor to encourage and challenge any audience to deeper faith in Christ and good works. With a message birthed from an intriguing personal journey profoundly impacted by the Word of God, Grant Norsworthy is uniquely qualified as a compelling voice on a number of important topics to all sincere followers of Jesus. But it’s as he provides online and onsite training for the heart and the art of worshipping musicians that Grant’s rare abili>es become more obvious. This aspect of Grant’s ministry work is called More Than Music Mentor. Interwoven with all he does, Grant is a wholehearted advocate for Compassion Internang several of his family’s own sponsor children - have profoundly and irrevocably altered Grant’s faith and perspec>ves. He encourages audiences to connect with “the least of these”, and therefore Jesus, by caring for those who are in need. In his words, “Yes, we can sing about God’s love forever, but we must be God’s love now! Singing and gathering together are important ways we can express worship. But I am convinced that God commands us to worship Him - or ‘show His worth’ - by surrendering to Him and being conduits, here and now, for the compassionate, self-sacrificial love of Jesus - especially towards the poor.” Grant is married to Kiwi (and US ci>zen) wife Brooke. They have three rambunc>ous sons - Max, Marcus and Casper. When he is not traveling for ministry work, Grant can be found with his family in Nelson, New Zealand … possibly unstacking a dishwasher or building Lego.
