Chris Carnley
Basist / Glue that holds us together

With a groove deeper than the Suwannee River, Chris Carnley lays down the low end with both finesse and fire. Raised in the Florida panhandle’s hotbed of southern gospel music, Chris took up the bass guitar at a young age, inspired by the soulful sounds that filled the churches of his youth. Now, he brings his spiritual style and technical chops to Forever Changed, locking into the pocket with his signature funky lines and driving the band with his percussive approach. Though deeply rooted in the past, Chris’s bass playing propels Forever Changed into the future of gospel music. Chris’s gear consists of a Music Man Stingray Bass and he runs it through a Helix pedalboard into a Mesa D800 amp. He may pull out an old favorite from time to time his Fender American Elite P-bass.

Jamie Carnley is The Sound Engineer for Forever Changed. He has the hardest job of them all. Jamie is also a Musician and Pastor of a local church. Jamie love’s doing ministry whether it is playing music, preaching, praying or any other avenues that the ministry will take him down.  Jamie is often asked, “When did you decide to become a minister, and eventually a Pastor?” People often don’t understand when I say, “it was not my chosen profession…the Lord called me to this work.” The Hebrew writer said, “…no man taketh this honor unto himself, but he that is called of God…” he just wants to be a willing vessel, an immovable mouthpiece for the Lord. His vision and Drive for Forever Changed is that many lives will continue to be transformed, souls saved, and set free in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
