Weaving a patchwork of melodies atop an upright bass and a guitar, Poor Bishop Hooper began as a duo, and the Roberts remain their core. Their mutual affection for song began even before their marriage, where they explored life, Southeast Asia, and eventually love together. Leah first picked up the bass after their marriage in 2013, and they began writing and performing shortly after. Amidst this early season, not only did their love for one another increase, but so too their love for Jesus. Over the years, they were called to further steward their gifts for God’s glory, and in increasingly unique ways. Though they still often perform classic covers and simple tunes in simple places, a vibrant musical ministry has also developed - ranging from full band, heavy mood moments like that in the Golgotha Experience, to string and vocal laden scores like that in Firstborn. They’ve performed for thousands around the country, in the largest of concert halls to the smallest of living rooms. They’ve been commissioned to write music by distinguished art museums, underground ministries, and independent artists. Their hearts for the Creator and the endless and bountiful inspiration he provides are ever growing. In turn, their creative projects follow his leading.
