RESCUE is drawing in listeners of all ages. Their sound is described as fresh and exciting, as they have developed their own captivating style that brings listeners into an entertaining and worshipful arena. Influences include the well-known Take 6, Rockapella, and Acappella. With the doors that the Lord is continuing to open, RESCUE is looking to take their music to every corner of the globe.
RESCUE had its beginning in the spring of 1996. Jason Overstreet had just finished his senior college recital, in which he had written and performed several a cappella songs. Impressed with his performance, his professors urged him to pursue his musical talents in the field of a cappella music. Having had previous conversations regarding a shared passion for singing, Jason got in touch with high-school and college friends Jason McKenney, and former members: Chad Krober and Matt Lusk. Together they formed a quartet and committed to learning, writing and performing a cappella songs.
After independently raising funds, RESCUE entered the studio in November of 1998 and recorded their first CD. After the release in February of 1999, the response to the CD lead to an overwhelming amount of ministry opportunities for the group. RESCUE CD's and DVD's are immediately available for purchase in our RESCUE Store on this website. The majority of RESCUE's songs are written and arranged by current and former members.
Touring internationally, RESCUE is regularly featured on television and radio. They have been especially blessed by sharing their music for President Bush, at Fiji Fest, World Vision, Promise Keepers, professional ball games, numerous community events, large men's retreats, women's special events, conference centers, churches, schools, colleges and youth rallies.
Since founding RESCUE in 1997, Director Jason Overstreet continues to invest his time writing and arranging RESCUE's music and overseeing all aspects of RESCUE in order to maintain the stability and consistency of music ministry.
God has bestowed incredible musical ability upon Jason and other vocalists Brian Sell, Steve Cross and Brandon Bell, all of whom have an intense and focused passion for HIM. They are exuberant in their love of RESCUE music and feel both humbled and honored that God has chosen them for this ministry.
