As Isaac

God has placed a clear call on As Isaac to sing His praise among the nations, to encourage the church to worship in Spirit and truth, and to share the beauty of life in Christ through the universal language of music.

As Isaac is Zachary Tate SmithRachel Blackmon, and Kristian Croxall. Meleah Smith is their manager at home and on the road.

Nathan Shirai (mandolin, trumpet, percussion, and any instrument we throw at him) and Stephen Humphries (hammered dulcimer and percussion) often accompany the band and are affectionately referred to as band cousins.

Internationally as a band, they’ve played in England, Ireland, Wales, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Moldova. From their hometown of Chattanooga, they have traveled all over the Southeast, up through New England, the Midwest, and the Southwest playing for churches, retreats, house concerts, coffeehouses, camps, private parties and galas. Whether for few or for thousands, they bring the same skill and passion to each setting.

As Isaac has opened for Kristian Stanfill, Audrey Assad, The Vespers, and Nashville singer-songwriters like Andy Gullahorn, Christopher Williams, Eric Peters, and Brady Toops. They were a featured artist at the internationally award winning Riverbend Festival. They are an active part of The Union Chattanooga and love touring with fellow members, Drakeford.

They serve weekly at their church Calvary Chapel Chattanooga in youth ministry, where they all met, and how the band originally formed.
