Plus One

Plus One was an American Christian pop band from the 2000s on the Atlantic Records label.

Plus One enjoyed their greatest success with the release of their debut album The Promise which featured the number one hits “Written on My Heart” and “God Is in This Place”.

Their debut album, The Promise was released in May 2000 and enjoyed great success in the Christian Pop scene. The Promise went gold with more than 500,000 album sales.   They had two No. 1 Christian radio hits, “Written on My Heart”, which was #1 on the charts for 2 months and “God Is in This Place.”

They toured with such Christian artists as Jaci Velasquez, Rachael Lampa, and Stacie Orrico. In 2001, they were nominated for a Dove Award as New Artist of the Year.

In 2000, they appeared in an episode of hit soap opera “Days of our Lives”(#8865) to perform on the show. The following year in 2001,they also appeared as juvenile kids who form a group while in jail on the TV series “Touched by an Angel”(“Band of Angels”).

They gave performances at the Democratic Convention of 2000, and several major league sporting events including games with the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, and Atlanta Hawks.

In 2002, after completing touring for their 2nd album, Obvious, Jeremy Mhire and Jason Perry were called to other ministries and obligations, leaving the band with the remaining three members to carry on Plus One’s music ministry. Obvious was not the commercial success that Atlantic hoped for and in 2003, the band was dropped from the label. Seeking to revamp their image, they signed a deal with Inpop Records and released their third album, Exodus. Co-produced by Newsboys frontman Peter Furler and keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein, Exodus marked a departure from the boy band image featuring guitars and the band performing their own material for the first time.

In 2004, after completing the “Exodus 04″ tour, Plus One quietly parted ways with Inpop and with each other, citing lack of album and ticket sales and a desire to move on to other projects as the reason for the break up.

Nate Cole and Gabe Combs went on to form rock band Castledoor. Nathan Walters went on to pursue a solo career in Nashville, TN.
