Maverick City Music was officially launched in 2018 after the duo spent several years hosting songwriting camps with people from across the United States. Over the years, Jay and his team brought together over 100 Christian artists and songwriters — and that effort birthed hundreds of songs.
Jay described Tribl — the force behind Maverick City Music — as a “gathering place,” a “microphone” and an “amplifier for all the people who feel like they have the maverick spirit.”
“The heart of Tribl is to be an amplifier to the world of what worship sounds like,” he told CP.
Maverick City Music consists of a number of members, including Chandler Moore, Brandon Lake and Naomi Raine, to name a few. The diverse group released their first EP, Maverick City, Vol. 1 in 2019. It debuted in the top 10 of Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums. Their first full-length album, Maverick City Vol. 3 Part 1, was released in 2020. That album garnered even more success, landing at No. 6 on Top Christian Albums and No. 2 on the Top Gospel Albums Chart.
Maverick City Music has seen success in both the Christian and mainstream worlds. Secular artists such as Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendez have publicly testified of the group’s impact on their faith journeys.
