Christian music's early millennium answer to secular acts such as N*SYNC and Backstreet Boys, Plus One splashed onto the scene with their 2001 debut, The Promise. Boasting hits "Written On My Heart," "Last Flight Out," and "God Is In This Place," the album sold more than 500,000 copies and earned them RIAA certified Gold status.
The group, initially part of the "boy band" movement of that time, transitioned to a more mature sound with 2003's Exodus, which featured original songwriting and a wider array of instruments.
After 2002's successful follow-up, Obvious, Plus One said goodbye founding members Perry and Jeremy Mhire heading into the Exodus album, and the group disbanded shortly thereafter in 2004. Former lead singer Nate Cole went on to form a number of indie rock bands, most recently Doom and Gloom with his wife, Lisa. Walters and Combs started a recording studio, Multitone Musik, together, but not before each of them tried their hand at other projects (Walters with a 2005 solo effort, and Combs with Cole in their former band, Castledoor).
In 2014, Plus One returned to offer a new single, "My All." They told their fans, "It's hard to believe that a decade has passed, and though we've been away for a while, your support for Plus One has never faded. We have been ecouraged and uplifted on how our music has impacted you, and this has further inspired us as we engaged in other pursuits. But something has been tugging at us; there are more stories to tell, and it feel like the perfect time to come together to share those with you."
