Michael Cochren is an award winning singer/songwriter and worship leader born and raised in a small Indiana town. After graduating from school, Cochren began playing music across the country with a band of friends, later including his wife Leah, under the name Cochren & Co. (pronounced Cochren and Company). With hope-filled lyrics and timeless melodies, Cochren & Co. blurs the line between American pop/rock and soul/blues to create a classic sound all their own. Dove Award nominated Cochren & Co. have toured coast to coast amassing a loyal following of new listeners wherever they go.

Nominated for a GMA Dove Award for New Artist of the Year, their debut full-length album Don't Lose Hope was released on Gotee Records in 2021. The debut included Billboard Top 10 radio hits "Church (Take Me Back," "One Day," and "Who Can." The title track "Don't Lose Hope" was featured in an episode of CBS's MacGyver. Cochren & Co.'s sophomore project, Running Home (2023), features the group's first No. 1 radio single with the title track as well as the 2022 Top 15 Billboard Christian Airplay & AC radio single, "Thank God for Sunday Morning," which was listed as one of K-LOVE's 22 Songs that Defined 2022. Cochren & Co. has been featured in various performances including's Positive Vibes Only. On June 13, 2023, Cochren & Co. made their historic debut on the Grand Ole Opry. With a full touring schedule and more music on the way, Cochren & Co are only getting started. For more information, visit

Music has taken Ben Fuller’s life and made it into something he never would have dreamed. Ben grew up in Southern Vermont on his family dairy farm working alongside his father. He'd pass the time by singing to old classic country tunes as he witnessed first-hand the hard work and dedication it took to run a farm. The songs never stopped and somewhere between the farm and college, he picked up a guitar and never looked back. Due to generations of hurt in his family, Ben struggled with certain aspects of growing up and turned to cocaine and alcohol at a young age. In 2015, Ben got involved in a devastating drug-fueled relationship which led him to understand better the other side of addiction. In addition, come 2017, he abruptly lost his best friend to a heroin overdose and his entire outlook on life shifted.
Motivated to change, Ben moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a country singer in late 2018. A family Ben was close with invited him to church one Sunday and as he walked the halls into the auditorium filled with 3,000 people, he knew one day he would sing "that kind of music" for the rest of his life. Falling face-first into his newfound relationship with Jesus, he began writing with a burning desire to share what God did to turn his life around. Today, Ben lives completely sober, while sharing his story filled with hope, mercy, and grace. By turning his testimony into songs, he has been rejuvenated with a new passion and mission; to share his story with the world and all who are ready to listen. Ben’s self-titled album releases on Provident Label Group/Sony Music in October and includes the hit radio single “Who I Am.” For more information, visit
