At-A-Glance Bios- Participant #1

Blake Creasy (guitar) has lived in Huntington for most of his life. He started playing music when he was 10 years old and now at 23 he hasn't stopped. Music is something he has a real passion for. Whether that be leading worship at churches, playing at open mic nights in coffee shops, or performing with his Christian Rock band, Torn in Two, he just loves sharing music with people.

Music has been a part of Megan Carpenter (vocals) for her entire life. Growing up her family toured the US performing plays and songs for different churches across the country. At 16 she began writing her own songs and crafting her musical talent. She enjoys leading worship at her home church and sharing her musical gifts wherever she can.
