Hello, we are Jack & Gabrielle Waters! 

We are singer-songwriters living in our home state of Michigan. We met in college playing on our worship team at church and got married in August 2018! We've always loved writing original music to share with our family and friends. We wrote the title track, “Home” during our engagement and surprised our guests by singing it during our wedding ceremony!

We are making our first EP with 3 original songs! We’ve been working on the material for almost a year and have the first half of our content already recorded. It has been a blast coming together with other local musicians and artists to create music that is beautiful and powerful. We are ready to finish recording, polish this project up and get it out to you!

We have decided to release our music independently and are excited about partnering with our community to bring this project to life. We’ve decided to use Kickstarter to raise the funds necessary for finishing our EP. These funds go directly into making this EP, including studio time, paying musicians, mixing & mastering, as well producing the physical copies!

Our record has been thoughtfully crafted with honest lyrics, bright and fresh melodies and the warm, welcoming sounds of an acoustic guitar and other folky instrumentation. Check out our “Living Room Sessions” which feature acoustic & unplugged versions of our EP songs on our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/gabriellejewel

These songs were written in the day-to-day moments of walking with God & family, while washing the dishes, on the way to work, and just walking around the house. That’s what we want to invite you into: coming Home to the people you love & the God who loves you.

We want to thank you for the support you’ve already given us. You have all believed in us & cheered us on and been so generous and kind. And we can’t thank you enough. We’re so glad you are our people.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is timeline. We have been working on these songs for awhile and we are so excited to get them out into the world, but our timeline is very aggressive. Like every Kickstarter project, if we don't meet our funding we can't afford to accomplish our goal. We are working hard to complete this project and we invite you to join us on the journey!
