Susan Steinemann Collins CSB

Come to this fountain— Jay and Tessa Frost

Jay and Tessa explain the inspiration behind this new setting of a beloved hymn By Mary Baker Eddy.

Tessa and Jay Frost have been writing and performing together since 2008 and deeply appreciate the spiritual growth that they've experienced in music. In 2012 they were thrilled to release Soulshine, their first inspirational music album, and shortly after published its sheet music in an effort to contribute new contemporary solos to the religious community.

Now living in Washington, DC, the Frosts continue to write solos and play at Christian Science church services while performing jazz, folk, and pop music.
