THIS IS US…. Jon & Hayley = RED LETTERS
Childhood sweethearts, we first met at age 15 & 17 at a local gig. Jon was playing guitar in a Metallica tribute band and the rest is history (although not so plain sailing!)
We married in 2001 and had our two girls not long after, who are now 13 & 10.
We live in Rugeley, Staffordshire, in a house that sits right on the edge of the canal.
We have a chihuahua called Lacey, who is cute and a cat called Willow, who is not so cute.
We are passionate about Jesus and live to worship Him alone. Nothing else in this world can satisfy.
After experiencing God’s love for us first hand and encountering Jesus in a personal way, we want to share this with as many people as we possibly can.
We go to an awesome church every Sunday called Create Church in Cannock, Staffordshire and love to be part of a growing ministry that loves God, loves people and does their very best to serve the community.
Music is a huge part of our lives.
We are both Music Teachers and teach private lessons from our home.
Our love for music has now spilled over into a love for worship and we believe their is nothing greater than getting creative on behalf of the one who created us!
We’ve been writing songs and playing music together for years but haven’t really pursued anything until now.
I suppose our focus has been our family but now the girls are getting older it seems like an opportune moment to actually start to live out our dreams of writing and recording our own music.
The name Red Letters came about when our friend, Rachael, suggested we should come up with a name for ourselves. Rachael really needs to take the credit because she thought of it! As soon as she said Red Letters, we instantly knew it was right.
Red Letters really symbolises the words that Jesus spoke in the bible, as being highlighted in red. It also symbolises the communication between us both being husband and wife.
Music is our main deal but when we’re not doing that we enjoy going for days out with the family like walks and bike rides over Cannock Chase and going on holiday to Benalmadena, our favourite area of Spain.
We are also huge gamers and love our PS4, particularly enjoying games like Uncharted, Jon being the driver, Hayley as navigator.
