Hi, we’re edenlight. We’re a husband and wife duo that plays and records original music. We play all kinds of venues: music festivals, coffee shops, community events, wineries, restaurants, bars, inner-city store front churches, biker events…...wherever the door opens. Out in the highways and byways where people are. Our music is rooted in life. It is inspired by our walk with Jesus and our journey in the Kingdom of God. Becoming who we are..........And especially connecting with others and helping them connect to the God who has so graciously blessed us all.
A special opportunity that God has given us over our career is to perform in prisons; from minimum security and super-max prisoners to death row inmates with literally days to live. It is very humbling and encouraging to present our music and share hope with men and women who have found themselves in the darkest of circumstances. Most people are trying to get out of prison. We keep trying to get back in. That’s what YELOline Initiative is about….. sponsoring edenlight to perform for and connect with as many inmates as possible.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
We are privileged to be working with a board of very talented individuals from diverse backgrounds who are unified in YELOline’s goal of sharing the hope of gospel with our nation’s inmate population through original, faith-based music.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, light from light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen
