Jake Luhrs

Coming from a broken home to become a two-time Grammy-nominated musician, Jake Luhrs has toured over forty different countries and sold over half a million records as the front man of metal band, August Burns Red. Over eight years ago he laid the foundation for the nonprofit HeartSupport that now helps more than ninety thousand people a month. Through Jake’s influence and leadership, the organization has encouraged thousands to take steps of healing in overcoming depression, self-harm, addiction, eating disorders, and several other issues while spreading the importance of mental and spiritual health among his colleagues and the music industry. In 2016, Jake was presented an Alternative Press Music Award for Philanthropy because of the impact HeartSupport made in the music industry. Jake is most passionate about his personal and intimate relationship with Christ because of the many ways in which he’s seen God impact his life and others. When not on tour, he resides in Pennsylvania with his French bulldog, Winston.
