Wellborne Music is a collective of songwriters and musicians from North Carolina who write songs as expressions of worship in the context of the local church. Our vision is to write songs that declare the riches of Christ and the Glories of God and provide a place of encounter with God’s love. We aim to write songs that are theologically rich, full of the power of the Gospel and also deeply artful and creative; for both the lyrics and the musical composition to speak to the heart.
