Raised on a farm in the heart of Canada, Leland quickly learned that shoveling manure and weeding potatoes, although lucrative, wasn’t his passion in life. So with absolutely no clear direction or vision for his future, he did what everyone does when they find themselves in that position – he went to College. He wisely chose his classes based on whichever cute girl happened to catch his attention and after several short years of last minute cramming and late assignments, Leland graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Anthropology.
As you might have guessed, Leland’s university education opened many doors for him in the years to come, but for some reason, he was dissatisfied working for a courier as a night shift stock boy. By this time married and with his first child soon on the way the most responsible and obvious choice was, of course, to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
His career has led him many places around the world doing live acts, television and film. Recently He starred in two movies, “Extraordinary” and “Altar Egos.”
Leland and his wife, Carrie, have been married for 23 years and he’s been doing comedy for 22 of them! The Klassen family lives in Canada where they have raised their two sons, Cooper, 21, and Hunter, 17.

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Brian learned piano at a very young age, transitioning over to guitar as he was exiting high school. Although he thought learning the guitar was to entertain himself while sitting on his bed, God had a bigger plan. Since 2006, Brian has been sharing the stage with artists such as Third Day, Casting Crowns, Jars of Clay, Tenth Avenue North, Chris August, Sidewalk Prophets, Britt Nicole, Phil Wickham, Jonny Diaz, JJ Heller, and many others; also including appearances at Spirit West Coast Del Mar and Monterey festivals and Elevate Music Festival.
Brian Weaver continues to portray his life through his music, as well as live his music through his life. He is excited about his newest songs, written from a place of honesty and openness. The hope is that his this collection of songs will bring listeners to a better understanding of what it means to worship God. Worship is not simply the music that plays before a message; it is a lifestyle. Worship is when we draw near to God and when we place ourselves in front of Him. Brian desires to not just encourage people to worship more in life, but to live in worship.
