Christian Nuckels is a husband and father first, and a Worship Pastor and recording artist second. He currently lives in the Tulsa area with his wife and three children, whom he lovingly refers to as "The Nucklings". He is a lover of fine coffee, vacationing at Disney with his family, and all things Star Wars. 

Over the last 2 decades, Christian Nuckels has released a copious volume of music exploring various genres and styles throughout his career. Originally from Denton, TX, Nuckels began his musical journey from 1999 - 2003 as the frontman for the ska band, Six Foot Midget.

When SFM dissolved Christian began to focus on his solo career, writing primarily acoustic indie rock. 
 In '04 he partnered with SFM's former producer, Justin Rana, to record his debut solo EP, Stating The Obvious, and spent several years playing the DFW indie rock scene and Deep Ellum clubs. Drawing on influences such as Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional and Mae, Nuckels released several singles in the years to follow including songs like Hold Me High and the song Phoenix which was co-written by former SFM guitarist, James Wilkins. 

In 2007 Christian took a hiatus to focus on his family. Following the tragic death of his father in 2009, he relocated to the Washington DC area to work in full-time church ministry and began writing worship music. In 2014 Nuckels founded the worship band Grace Rising which released their debut LP in 2016 followed by a live EP in 2017. 

Nuckels relocated to Tulsa in June of 2018 to serve as one of the Worship Pastors at BattleCreek Church. He released his first solo worship album Alive and Free in August of 2019. His most recent music release, "Love of a Savior", is a collaboration with Hip Hop artist, Gospel Lee and Indie Soul artist, Seeker. Christian is currently working on projects releasing in 2020 with BattleCreek Collective and the newly formed indie duo, Forever Again alongside his long-time friend and guitarist Chris Wetterman.
