Christy Nockels is a contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter and, together with her husband Nathan, a co-owner of Keeper's Branch Records. Until 2006, Nockels and Nathan were a worship duo known by the name Watermark.
Nockels has long had a huge appreciation for music and for ministry and its role in the kingdom of God. As a worship leader for over 25 years, she’s seen first hand how music can usher people into the presence of God in a powerful way.
Whether she’s singing a soft, lullaby or belting out an anthem, Nockels’s heart has always been to simply lead people to connect and communicate with the living God. The daughter of a pastor and a piano teacher, born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma, she was leading worship on a regular basis by age 17.
In 2008, the Nockels family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to become a founding family of Passion City Church, where they served on the worship team with friends Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Kristian Stanfill.
Nockels spent seven years touring and spreading the gospel worldwide with Passion Conferences and Chris Tomlin before she and her family felt called to return to Tennessee, the place that’s always felt most like home.
Today, Nockels and her family make their home in Franklin, Tennessee. In 2017, Nockels released an album of lullabies, titled Be Held: Lullabies for the Beloved. Be Held: Lullabies for the Beloved was nominated for a Dove Award and is her personal favorite to date.
Of the album, Nockels said, "We never outgrow the need to be sung over about the Father’s love for us.” Her latest endeavor is her podcast, "The Glorious in the Mundane," which has exceeded her expectations since its beginning in 2016.
It has grown in listeners but also in Nockels’s heart as a place where she’s learning to use her voice beyond just singing. Touring with author friends, such as Jennie Allen, Rebekah Lyons, and Ann Voskamp, Nockels has also developed a love for writing and speaking and continues to be stretched beyond her musical borders.
