After taking an interest in band in middle school, Shanez was led to learn more about music at a small missionary Baptist church in Wagener, SC. From these roots, his musical interests have grown to span from old negro spirituals to newer collectives such as Indelible Grace & Maverick City. With a heart to lead souls into worship through music, his favorite part of his music background is hearing others fellowship as they sing. Shanez feels blessed to be a part of CONYC ‘22, and he can’t wait to worship alongside you! His team consists of Hunter Tomlin (MIDI/Guitar), Kayla Dendy (Vocals), Chris Austin (Bass), Tim Miller (E.
