Joyful. Energic. Magnetic. Passionate. Real.
The Scally Brothers are a dynamic duo from Toledo, Ohio composed of Jake and Zach Scally. From an early age the brothers developed a passion for their faith and love of all things music. The duo makes a powerful statement with their much-anticipated single, Keep Hopin’, an epic, sweeping musical landscape that encompasses themes of ambition, dreams, and purpose.
The single’s soaring debut features a hypnotic wave of rhythm and electronic sounds. The lyrics cut through the societal noise to remind us about what is important in our life: “If there is breath in your lungs, God is not done yet. We have to KEEP HOPIN’ & KEEP DREAMIN’!”
This inspiring pop masterpiece also represents the exciting adventure into a new life for brothers Jake and Zach, who were propelled into stardom with the release of their critically acclaimed singles, Keep Hopin’ & YOU, which debuted on multiple editorial playlists on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and more. In addition to their studio success, the duo performed nationally on a widely successful 70-date tour.
“God has blessed us in so many incredible ways,” says Jake. “When I wake up every morning, I always tell God thank you for all He has blessed us with. We owe it to Him, our community, and ourselves to pour all we have into our ministry. We approach every show from a heart of serving. We are here to serve the wonderful people, staff, and fans who make these tours possible.”
Jake and Zach believe their newest songs fit in perfectly with today’s Christian music artists, where acts ranging from “for KING & COUNTRY” to “Matt Maher” to “Chris Tomlin” to “TobyMac” are proclaiming themes of hope, prayer, and joy. The duo strives to create an environment of full control to Jesus.
“Our philosophy and method of leading worship ultimately comes from a heart of surrender,” Zach says. When we are surrendered we can worship freely knowing that the Holy Spirit will lead us where we need to go next. Leading worship holds such a special place in our heart because we don't do this for our glory or fame, we do this for His. God will be praised and He will get the glory! We give Him our best just like the Father has given us His best (Jesus Christ). So in that time of surrender we lay everything at His feet.”
The Scally Brothers believe strongly in the phrase, “Worship isn't about what you get, it is about what you give.” Jake and Zach add, “We pray as a group before we take the stage and always include a simple, but heartfelt few lines like... God tonight is Your night, it's not about us, it's not about what we can gain, but this is Your show, Your stage, and Your children who You have called together. Let us be Your hands and Your feet, Lord, and we pray that the people here tonight will see a glimpse of Jesus through us. Tonight is not about The Scally Brothers, it's all about You. Come Holy Spirit and let Your will be done. Amen.”
The Scally Brothers began writing and recording songs about hope and love over ten years ago, when the band was originally founded, with messages that are vital during the valleys of our lives. Their music provides answers, comfort, and affirmation, while offering a constant reminder that we aren’t alone, even in our darkest hour.
"I just have to tell you how much your performance meant to me last night here in Wichita,” says an anonymous Scally Brothers fan. “I felt like you were speaking directly to me during one of your songs. You mentioned that depression, anxiety, and financial stresses can't defeat God. I have been having such a struggle the last several months with these issues and your words really touched me. Thank you for allowing God to speak through you and your music!"
In 2023 Jake & Zach are performing all around the United States of America for their seventh national tour. They share a special heart for Youth Ministry and Young Adults. The Scally Brothers strongly believe that their mission is to revive the youth of the Church and bring a new energy to its people. A bible verse that is modeled for the duo comes from the book of Philippians: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
