Jason and deMarco first rose to prominence in 2004 with their debut album, Spirit Pop. The duo was featured on the July 2004 cover of the national gay magazine, The Advocate, as the poster boys for a larger story on the movement of GLBT Americans reclaiming their faith. However, though spirituality does play a significant role in their lives, Jason and deMarco say their music is not religious.
"It is probably the biggest mis-perception we have faced in our careers," says Jason. "We are both men of faith, that is true, but the messages we share are universal."
"What can be more universal than love?" adds deMarco. "Of course, love has been looked at and examined in so many ways before but the response to our video has proved there is a hunger in our community to see a positive example of the kind of love that can exist in a same-sex relationship. Our music has a message, and if I had to call it anything, it would be uplifting. We want it to speak to everyone, not only people of one particular faith."
Last summer, the duo released their fourth album, Till the End of Time.
