Willet is a band comprised of brothers, Jeremy, Justin and Jordan Willet from Westminster, MD with a vision to serve unreached people globally. The band has been serving in full-time ministry since 2006, performing and releasing recordings internationally. Instead of signing to a record label, Willet manages bookings, merchandise, touring, distribution, and marketing independently and has decided to affiliate with mission-sending organization, New Missions Systems International in an effort to use music releases, tour dates, and merchandise to raise awareness and funds for global missions. The brothers still tour extensively as a band through the year, but each individual member also serves in ministry in separate locations. Lead singer, Jeremy Willet, lives on a missionary campus with his wife, son, and daugther at The Center For Global Outreach in Fort Myers, FL assisting with NMSI's community transformation initiatives and traveling as a Global Missions & Social Justice Advocate (www.jeremywillet.com). Guitarist, Justin Willet, lives with his wife on the Willet Farm Property in Westminster, MD and runs a missions-photography and graphic design company (www.justinwillet.com). Drummer, Jordan Willet, lives with his wife in Escondido, California and serves as the Assistant Director of Music and Media at The Center Church.
In 2012, Willet released "The Love on the outside E.P." (Produced by Grammy Nominated, Aaron Gillespie of Underoath & The Almost) and sold over 10,000 copies in the 1st year. The band then followed up the E.P. with a 2014 Full-Length Album entitled, "Searchlight", proclaiming the anthemic message, "Light of the world, send us out into the darkness, Your word is a searchlight". This community worship album touched on lyrical themes such as miracles, healing, speaking in tongues, prophecy, signs & wonders, predestination & free-will, salvation, simplicity, depression, grace, adoption, poverty and global missions. Willet makes its recordings available to all concert attendees through a unique Pay-What-You-Can model in an effort to advance the name of Jesus to the nations.
Over the past 8 years, Willet has had the opportunity to mobilize over 750,000 nutritious meals for school feeding programs worldwide while also raising over $8 million for community development projects through child sponsorship. As a part of these initiatives, the band has led worship, and participated in community transformation projects in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Haiti, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Bahamas, Jamaica, Thailand, India and the UK.
