"Our mission is to bring hope.
We have a message that God loves you and cares for you.
That's what our name means: It's us plus one, and the one is God."

History of Plus One
Plus One, was originally comprised of five members;
Nathan Walters, Gabe
Combs, Jeremy Mhire,
Jason Perry and Nate Cole (aged 18 -24), who created a wildly successful debut album, THE
PROMISE, back in May of 2000, and enjoyed great success in the Christian
Pop scene. The Promise went gold with more than 500,000 album sales.
They had two No. 1 Christian radio hits, "Written on My Heart",
which was # 1 on the charts for 2 months and "God Is in This Place."
The idea of forming a Christian boy band was the bright
idea of an executive at Atlantic Records, because of the success
of such secular bands as 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys. Auditions
were held, and these 5 young men, who were all raised in the Assembly
of God Church, three of them being Pastors' sons, came together
and melded as a group, all firmly believing that the Lord had brought
them together to be in Christian ministry, to do great things for
They found themselves touring with such Christian
Artists as Jaci Velasquez , Rachael Lampa, and Stacie Orrico. In 2001,
they were nominated for a Dove Award as New Artist of the Year.
They gave performances at the Democratic Convention
of 2000, for events for Vice President Al Gore and several major
league sporting events, including games with the Los Angeles Lakers,
Chicago Bulls, and Atlanta Hawks.
The band was featured on Teen Magazine Online and
performed at Atlanta Fest and the Raggedy Ann Festival in Arcola,
IL, as part of their tour schedule.
In 2002, after the release of their 2nd album, OBVIOUS,
two members of Plus One, Jeremy Mhire and Jason Perry were called
to other ministries and obligations, leaving the band with the remaining
three members to carry on Plus One's music ministry.
Walters, Gabe Combs,
and Nate Cole are the current
members of Plus One.
Walters, Gabe Combs,
and Nate Cole
have released a new album, EXODUS on November 18, 2003.
"If Life is a journey, then Exodus is the road
to the heart and soul of Plus One, uncovering growth and God,
loss and love. Exodus is filled with uniquely crafted songs and
distinctive vocals - all showing a sophisticated approach towards
modern pop music."
