Naturally, the two found a home on the trip as the de facto worship leaders. It wasn’t long before they developed a newfound chemistry as they performed improvisational sets to stay creatively fresh. This segued into a collaboration on an original music album, and thus, Convent Bonfires was born. Deriving their name from nightly campfires outside of an old convent in South Africa, the two quickly got to work upon their return to the United States, recording the EP “Story Telling” in early 2017.
Though they have a meticulous dedication to consistently creating, don’t be surprised if they stop the show in its tracks to make up a song or improvise off of an audience suggestion, furthering their dedication to make it about the people, not themselves.
