Randy Stonehil, one of the "founding fathers of Contemporary Christian Music"...
The story of Randy Stonehill coming to Los Angeles in 1970 to apply for the job of “rock star” but
finding Jesus instead has been told and retold innumerable times – often by Randy himself in
songs like “Norman’s Kitchen”. His friendship with Larry Norman throughout the ‘70s has been
celebrated in tunes and liner notes and more recently examined in the documentary film Fallen
Angel. The contribution of this singer & songwriter over these forty some years has been
substantial – in first pioneering popular rock music with a Christian point of view and later
demonstrating a consistency in holding to the faith through the trials and tribulations of ordinary life.
Randy was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1985 for his duet with Amy Grant and in 1988 CCM
Magazine acclaimed his 1976 album Welcome to Paradise as among the top three most
influential albums in the contemporary Christian genre. A parade of creative and gifted producers
have worked with Randy over the years including: Larry Norman, Terry Scott Taylor, Barry Kaye,
Dave Perkins, Mark Heard, Jimmy Lee Sloas, Rick Elias, Bob Kilpatrick, Phil Keaggy, and Mike
Pachelli. Recent projects in "Spirit Walk" and "Breath of God".
The song "Where are You" is a new song born out of the challenges of walking through his dad's struggle with Alzheimer's.
