“The goal of our music is to inspire others to live an abundant life through an authentic relationship with an authentic God. Our mission is to awaken a movement and to ignite a wildfire passion for Jesus in the hearts of this generation and those to come.”
The emerging sound of today’s most current pop infused with rock, and hearts sold out for Jesus Christ equals LoveCollide. Two sisters, Lauren and Brooke DeLeary, began singing together as little girls, sharing a room, singing into their hairbrushes. Not long after, they began writing music and at age 13 and 16, they started to record. Lauren, now 21 plays bass and keys with Brooke, age 18, on guitar and percussion; their harmonies and powerful vocals create a sound as genuine and powerful as their message of faith.
“We have a huge passion for Christians to be bold in their faith,” they explained, “for people to draw a line in the sand and choose living for their King. We want to encourage those who feel lost or alone that there is Hope. We want everyone to know that there is someone who loves them incredibly —and his name is Jesus. We also have a passion for others to see who they truly are in the eyes of Christ and to find their identity in Him. When you begin to see how much He loves you, it changes your whole life perspective."
Lauren and Brooke began opening for artists such as Laura Story and Natalie Grant, and writing more songs, drawing from their own joys, struggles, faith, hurts, and devotion. What you get is pure emotion. Their self-titled debut CD, LoveCollide, is a 12-song project that reflects their bold witness and personal journey. As one listener said, “It’s rock, it’s worship, it’s prayer, all in one. I weep singing, ‘Lord I’m yours to break, strip away the fake / Bring me to my knees . . . I wanna be real, I wanna be true, I wanna mean the things I do / I wanna be brave, I wanna be loud, I need you to show me how.’”
“We want this CD to reach to depths of people’s lives,” say Lauren and Brooke. “There is so much fluff and surface in todays music, but we strive to be counter cultural - pointing others to TRUTH, with a catchy tune of course. We all have lives that are messy, the ups and down are inevitable. We also have a God that sees into the depths of our lives, the places that people may not see. We want our music to reach those places.”
Why “LoveCollide”? Lauren and Brooke explain:
Everything boils down to the cross. The cross is where God’s incredible LOVE for us COLLIDED with our wretched sin! When you finally understand that kind of love you cannot help but fall more in love with Him and that is when real abundant life begins!
Lauren, a BMI writer and publisher, graduated from Belmont University studying vocal performance. Brooke is affiliated with ASCAP and has her publishing with Native River Publishing. Currently on their nation-wide tour, and writing songs for their next project.

"...Easily the stand out artist of the year for me"
--Kevin Davis, NewReleaseTuesday
"...LoveCollide is very serious-minded in its mission to “draw you closer to Him,” and the over-all feel of this album is one of reflective joy and celebration. In song after song—mostly notably “Sold Out,” “Through Your Eyes,” and “Numb”—the musical (and spiritual) mood is enhanced by well-crafted melodies, beautifully braided harmonies, infectious hooks, and thoughtful, nuanced lyrics that probe important facets of trying to live an authentic Christian life. For two young artists who have shown great promise for years, this album delivers in a big, big way."
--Dave Carew, writer/editor of “Underground Nashville”
"Keep an eye on these two in the next few years as they make a splash in the Christian Music Industry. It’s inspiring to see these young women leading worship and honoring God with the talents He has given them!"
