Relinquish was started by the young and ambitious lead singer, Luke Fortner. Singing in front of crowds since he was old enough to hold a mike, Luke has always known his mission in life: To glorify God with the voice he was blessed with. Applauded by churches across the country, Luke decided to go bigger. Now Relinquish is a five member band with Landon Clark as the lead guitarist, Jacob Kelley on the drums, Bailey Mann on Bass ,and Josiah Sprankle providing keys. Now Relinquish travels to churches, schools, youth rallys and venues across the country, spreading their talent and the message of Jesus’ love to all who will listen. Please pray for them and their ministry in their future endevors.

My name is Jacob Kelly. I’m a Senior at Staunton River Highschool and I’ve beening playing drums for about four years. I have been with Relinquish for almost two years. I attend church at Radford Baptist Church, and there is something that most people don’t know about me; I also play guitar and I’m very good with computers. I love playing basketball, weight-lifting and hanging out with my friends.
My name is Josiah Sprankle, I am 16 years old and I am the keyboardist for Relinquish. When I was 6 years old, my life was greatly impacted when I received the Lord Jesus as my Savior and was saved from my sins. Even today, living in the Holy Spirit and serving God gives me joy greater than anything else in this world. However, being able to worship God with music is an amazing way for me to use my abilities, and to have a closer connection with God as well. For me, playing with Relinquish is a great way for me to do this. I’ve been playing with Relinquish for a little over a year, and I’ve been playing piano for about 8 years. I also enjoy playing many styles of music outside of contemporary Christian music, including Classical, Rock, Jazz and Southern Gospel. For me, Relinquish really sticks out as a band because the music is Christ-centered and the members are committed to serving Jesus. Why don’t you give our music a listen?
My name is Landon Clark. I have lived in Ronaoke, Va all my life. My Savior rescued me at the age of 11 and I have been trying to follow Him the best that I can since then. I have a passion for music and my influences range from Keith Urban, John Mayer, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, and many other artists who I admire. I have been playing guitar since I was 16 and I am now 21, going on 22. I have one purpose and that is to glorify God in all I do. May God bless you guys with the music that we bring and to Hime be all the glory! John 16:33
