Last September I recorded a solo album, “God, You’re So Beautiful”, with Tate Music Group. My desires with this album are to encourage the old, the defeated, and the depressed, to tell of the wonderful goodness of Jesus, and to call the unbelievers and fence riders to Him; hence "How Long Will You Wait?" and "It Was the Blood On the Cross" but understanding our struggles ("Why Do I Let Go of Your Hand?") and the joys (Take Me Up Higher) but especially the beauty and companionship of Jesus (Lord, I Love You) and "God, You're So Beautiful!).

I live near Sprague River, Oregon with my wife, Jan, who sings with me.  Sprague River is a tiny town in the high desert of south central Oregon.  We moved here because it's quiet, beautiful...and relatively cheap.  It's much easier for me to enjoy God's presence and creation than in the city.  God surprised us by having a wonderful, loving church body here which has contributed to our inward healing and personal growth. 

I enjoy God and His beautiful creation, my wife, kids, and grand kids. I like fishing, swimming, boating, gardening,  wood working - and of course music.

Influences that formed my musical tastes: growing up in church, my mom singing strong harmonies, gospel quartets such as the Oak Ridge Boys, the Imperials, and the Blackwood Brothers,  Love Song, Barry McGuire, John Michael Talbot, Phil Keagy, Ray Charles, James Taylor, Carol King, Stevie Wonder, Elvis Presley,Simon and Garfunkel, and the Allman Brothers Band. 

I hope you experience God’s presence and pleasure today, wherever you are.  

God's blessings on you!

John E. Stephens
