Here Be Lions

Integrity Music Artist & Worship Collective, Nashville, TN

Here Be Lions takes its name from the ancient mapping tradition in which explorers marked unknown, dangerous territory with a symbol and the phrase “Here Be Lions.” Originally meant as a warning, the phrase has become a call for the Here Be Lions team to advance God’s kingdom and authority. They do so through focusing on discipleship, music and community.

Led by worship leader and songwriter Dustin Smith (“God Who Moves The Mountains,” “Miracles”), the team includes Dustin’s wife Jeanna, James Galbraith, Jordan Clause, Jeremy Weedman and Garner McGregor. Together they aspire to create music that welcomes the power and presence of God in expectation of salvation, healing and restoration.

Released by Integrity Music, their new album “Only A Holy God” delivers 12 songs of reverence and repentance written around the character of God and the forgiveness and wholeness found in Jesus.

HopefulSon Worship Collective

Calgary, AB

HopefulSon is a collection of musicians, songwriters & worship leaders based out of Alberta, Canada, who are passionate about creating worship experiences that make it easy to engage with Jesus. The heart behind our music, whether we are writing, performing, recording or leading worship, is always to draw people into moments of closeness with God. Our albums are comprised of songs we have written in our devotional time, both alone and as a community, which we believe are not just for us, but for the church. Our hope is always that God takes hold of our music and uses it to draw his people into moments of friendship and joy with Him.

Bethel Conservatory of the Arts
