About Us

WHAT'S IN A NAME
Crosby Lane is named for one of the most prolific hymn writers of all time - Fanny Crosby. Her inspiring and beautiful lyrics have touched generations of believers. With over 8500 hymns, Fanny expresses heavenly purpose and earthly joy! "To God Be the Glory", "Praise Him! Praise Him!", "Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior", "I am Thine, O Lord", "Rescue the Perishing", and "Blessed Assurance" are but a sampling of the unforgettable hymns she penned. Crosby Lane is all about the music that has moved - and still moves - generations to worship the Lord!

I'M WITH THE BAND
Crosby Lane is comprised of former Country music singer-songwriter, Tonja Rose; multi-Dove Award nominated Christian music writer-arranger, singer, and worship leader, John Lemonis; and instrumentalist, vocalist Michaela Lemonis. The trio shares a mutual passion for the ministry side of hymns. Upon investigating the origins of the church's music for the past many decades, they came to the realization that God's goodness is timeless and absolutely captured in these works of art. Fresh musical arrangements and interesting vocal presentations will make this group a favorite!

MUSIC
Nothing moves people like music does and exceptional music can calm the restless heart and exhilarate the waning spirit, while expressing stories with stunning and memorable fashion. A great song carries the listener through faith - with nostalgia and encouragement to other places and times. Best of all, music has a one-of-a-kind role in magnifying the brilliance of our Creator!   

THE EVENT
Crosby Lane concerts and conferences are strategically packed with enthusiastic, organic arrangements of hymn classics, powerful renditions of praise and worship standards, and original songs. The audience will find themselves singing along at times and listening intently at other times with hearts wide open. Mixed with testimony and stories behind the songs, this fast-paced entertainment value is high; however, more importantly, it is a most unique worship experience.

CROSBY LANE appearances are generally "love-offering, plus expenses" events, so there are NO limits on budget, size of group, or venue. We are a full-time group, but are willing to work with any church to have opportunities to minister. To book an opportunity or discover more information, please call John or Michaela at 615-419-6713 or 615-448-7477.
