Forming a duo wasn’t the obvious choice in the beginning. Caleb, a pastor’s kid from the northeast, grew up on a steady stream of Christian music while John, the only brother to five sisters, came to love it as a young adult. John taught himself to play guitar and piano through videos on YouTube where Caleb is a classically trained musician. John’s personal style leans toward the gritty, rootsy side and Caleb’s sweet spot is in pop melodies. While both playing for other artists like Sam Hunt, Katy Nichole, CAIN and Anne Wilson, Caleb and John met through a mutual friend who believed they might work well together. “When we met it was an interesting difference,” John says. “We hit off immediately, but it took a minute for us to find the right sound together.” “We didn’t find our sound right away,” Caleb says. “I thought John was so awesome, but I wasn’t sure if we’d be a musical fit. But once we decided to just jam for a while, both of us hopping instrument to instrument, that’s when we found the magic.”
Caleb & John are writing their own definition of brotherhood. Two men who came to music in completely different ways, Caleb & John have created their own distinctive sound with joy-fueled, high-energy vocals paired with vibrant musicality all pointing to Jesus. In short, their music is hopeful and fun, just like Caleb & John themselves.
“Hallelujah Feeling,” the duo’s infectious debut single, is an intersection of both Caleb & John’s styles, a hook-driven pop melody with a driving, rootsy vibe and a little rock and roll thrown in for good measure. Based on Romans 15:13 which says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit,” it’s Caleb & John’s declaration of their intentional belief that Jesus is the answer. “We love that hallelujah is more than a feeling,” Caleb says. “It’s the joy of the Lord, something anyone can have when they know Jesus. It perseveres through hardship because it’s more than a feeling.”
