We've Got Unfinished Business


And That's A Good Thing


The Encore Collective is a group of Christian musicians from all over the Metrolina area, many of whom once pioneered contemporary Christian music in the 70s and 80s. These seasoned performers decided to return to something they loved; making music with friends to the glory of God and His Kingdom.

Encore specializes in Classic Contemporary Christian music of the last 50 years; as well as new, often never heard songs. An Encore Collective concert is designed to communicate vital messages to God’s people and motivate them to excel in being Salt & Light to a culture that has lost its way.

In a way Encore is a tribute band for the Contemporary Christian artists of the last 50 years. Encore uses the best of each decade (including the present). However,  Encore also uses new songs you likely have not heard, but are nevertheless reminiscent of contemporary music of the past half century.


There are almost always opportunities open. Encore is planning to expand and add instruments and even voices. There are new projects (such as VocalX - A Capella Singers) starting up soon. If you are a song-writer, Encore may want to listen to your compositions. They may even be publishable on this site in the future for your profit. The sky's the limit. Dream with us!
