Jay & Abby Akins

Jay & Abby Akins

Jay and Abby Akins are singer/songwriters and recording artists from South Atlanta. Married for 12 years, Jay and Abby love leading worship together weekly at their church and mentoring the next generation of worship leaders.

Regardless of the gathering, they are consistently compelled by God’s love to help lead others to an authentic and intimate encounter with God. They firmly believe God has blessed them with the great responsibility of leading His people through music. Their greatest desire is that, as they lead in worship, people are able to see the love, grace, and truth of the Gospel more clearly.

The last seven years have challenged their faith like never before, as they’ve walked through the deserts of infertility. However, the Lord has redeemed that barren time by giving them songs to sing of His faithfulness and goodness. They felt God’s urging to share these songs with others, as they believe that putting pen to paper and melody to prayer is their most fervent act of worship.

Their songs have been born out of life experience and adversity, but also a God-given desire to share His heart with those who will listen. They recently released their debut album TRUST – eight songs that share the grace-filled message God has been teaching them.

They hold fast to the truth that when God’s word is communicated clearly, hearts are conquered, minds are renewed, and communities are transformed.
