Andra Moran lives in Nashville, Tennessee where she works as a songwriter, singer, author, worship designer and freelance touring musician in a variety of settings. Andra has released six full length albums, three EPs and a bilingual album titled Chant Spontané for the Reform Church of France.
Andra is a solo artist who loves to be a team player. She cofounded the Convergence Music Project (2016) and coauthored “Brim: Creative Overflow in Worship Design” with Suzanne Castle in 2013, which was honored with an Editors Choice Award by Worship Leader Magazine. In 2021, Andra was a presenter at the Wild Goose Festival and also released a new album of Christmas carols and arrangements called “Joy Anyway.” Currently, Andra sings and writes full time, and works part time on the staff of Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville as the Creative Director and worship pastor. She enjoys cooking, hiking, reading, making it through airport security with no do-overs, and seeking adventure with her five year old daughter, named after the heirloom lilies in that bloom in her garden.
Suzanne Castle lives in Forth Worth, Texas where she works as a producer, pastor, consultant, speaker and worship designer in a variety of settings. This former professional actress and dancer has authored multiple magazine articles and books, has her own show Thought Leader Thursday, and multiple resources/courses for leadership and creativity.
As a deeply creative spirit with sparkle in her soul, Suzanne Castle recognized early on the importance of art to capture our attention. The joy-filled ability to recreate the world and allow it to glimmer anew – the “sparkle factor” – is a necessary and too often neglected piece of our humanity and thriving. Suzanne’s desire is to call to life the creative spirit in herself and others, to invigorate and honor artists and creatives as they lend their essential vision to the way we see the world.
She was delighted to coauthor Brim: Creative Overflow in Worship Design with creative collaborator, Andra Moran and has presented in large scale events from denominational gatherings to smaller scale events like Wild Goose, C21, W, LeadUMC and many more. It is her joy to foster this space for others, through one-on-one coaching, group retreats and events, speaking engagements, and stargazing. When not creating and speaking you can find Suzanne sipping chocolate Dr. Peppers (or wine!) and enjoying dog smooches from her furkids Brando and Trinka and soaking up giggles with her daughter Ava and partner Brian.
