Artist Profile: 3b4jHoy

3b4jHoy Artist Picture

Sisters Heather, Dominique, and Claudette have been singing as a group since 2001 when they released their very first album entitled “You’re Worthy Lord”. Back then, their group’s name was just “Joy”, a name that fit their bubbly personalities perfectly. Joy travelled nationally and internationally ministering and promoting ‘You’re Worthy Lord’ for two years before they returned to the studio to record their sophomore album, “Only U.”

“Only U” showcased the sisters’ songwriting and vocal arrangement skills and inspired the creation of a new name for the group, “jHoy”. Things only got busier for the ladies as they began the promotion of “Only U”. This album opened the door for them to perform on The Gospel of Music with Jeff Majors on TV One where they were privileged to meet and share the stage with Smokie Norful, Trinity 5:7, 21:03 and J. Moss. They have also opened for popular gospel artists like Vicki Winans, Papa San, and many more. jHoy was ready to start their promising career in the Gospel music arena, but God had other plans.

In 2011, the sisters began attending Mishkan David Messianic Congregation in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The truth of the Word of God changed their musical sound and, once again, their name. jHoy became “3b4jHoy”, which represents the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit going before jHoy. In 2012, 3b4jHoy debuted their new Messianic musical sound at AMF in North Carolina. Ever since then, they have been ministering at various events, sharing the truth of Messiah Yeshua.

Currently, the sisters are the praise and worship leaders of Just Life Messianic Ministries and also members of the praise team at Mishkan David Messianic Congregation.

Artist Profile: Tamrah Aeryn-Alexander

tamrah

Tamrah Aeryn-Alexander is a gifted, classically trained pianist, self-taught guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist, who has been composing music since she can remember. Starting her musical debut on the secular Alternative music scene as Tamrah Aeryn, she recorded the full-length album “Typical Gurl” with London producer Lionel Hicks for the European label, ‘Massacre’, before turning her life around and making the transition to Messianic Judaism.

After moving to Pensacola, Florida, Tamrah became a member of Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue under the direction of Rabbi Eric Tokajer–Inspired by the music she heard there, she soon joined their praise and worship team where she met singer-songwriter Natasha Kraus-Reynolds who was leading worship at the time. Dually inspired by Natasha’s dynamic voice and unique story, Tamrah began to write Messianic songs for her to sing, and over the course of the next 2 years, Tamrah produced the albums, “In the Beginning” (2009), and “Children of the Light” (2010) with songs written by Natasha Kraus-Reynolds, Tamrah Aeryn, and Jonathan Lane.

Now after numerous requests, Tamrah has finally produced and released “A Place in HIM”, an album of her own original and inspired music. Poignant and deeply personal, the album is a unique testimony to G-d’s constant presence in the lives of those who truly seek Him. The album contains 14 songs which amount to over an hour of beautifully crafted, original Alternative Messianic music that will inspire you in your walk with the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Aside from writing music, Tamrah is the music director and praise and worship leader at Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue in Pensacola Florida, along with singer-songwriter Aja Parish.

Artist Profile: Natasha Kraus-Reynolds

Natasha Profile Picture Natasha was born and raised in the small Latin American country of Panama, to parents of Jewish ancestry. As it happened to many Jewish people throughout the world, Natasha’s family lost their traditions and became assimilated. Her parents raised her in the Christian faith. After turning her back on G-d and in need of salvation, as a young adult, Natasha rediscovered her faith as a Messianic Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus), The Messiah. As a Messianic Jewish believer she began to trust G-d, as she was able to better understand how The Creator of the Universe loves us so greatly, that he keeps all of His words and all of His promises from old. It was amazing for her to see how He knew from the beginning how His plan of redemption to the world would be carried out by means of our Jewish Messiah, as it is written in the Tanakh, the book of the prophet Isaiah, Chapter 59 verse 20 and expounded in Romans 11.

Natasha is especially thankful for her friend, co-writer and producer, Tamrah Aeryn Alexander, a gifted classically trained pianist and self-taught guitarist, who has very graciously worked with her on three albums: “In The Beginning”, “Children of the Light” and “Mi Kamocha” מי כמכה (Who is like You). “I Prepare Myself” is a song included in Children of the Light. This dynamic music will grip your soul and inspire you in your walk with G-d. It is a powerful and healing praise and worship experience for Jews and Christians alike.

Through this music, Natasha hopes that lives would be moved, people would turn to the one true G-d, the G-d of Israel, and that many would be changed by the liberating power of the Most High to live as “B’nei HaOr” or “Children of the light”, as written in Ephesians 5:8-10.
