Warren, Ohio based singer/songwriters Rich & Tami Stevens join forces with their daughter, Erin, on 'So Blessed', a CD which has a wide variety of musical styles, from light adult contemporary, to inspirational and southern gospel.
Produced and arranged by Rich & Tami, they have called upon several top musicians to offer their talents. Well known drummer John Sferra (band member with Phil Keaggy in Glass Harp) plays superbly on 8 cuts. Nashville studio musicians Jeremy Medkiff and Kelly Back lend their expertise on acoustic and electric guitars, as well as talented guitarist Larry Hall of Freedom, PA. Jeff Duffield, keyboardist extraordinaire, adds overdubs and horn arrangements. Dove award nominated and multi-talented studio musician David Johnson fills in all the right spaces with strings, acoustic guitar, and mandolin. Rich provides the musical foundations, covering keyboards and bass guitar.
Rich & Tami have penned 5 new songs for this recording: Steadfast, I Want To Try, Always The Right Time, Live For Jesus, and Quality Time.
Be sure to listen to Tami's solo on Quality Time, a beautiful song with piano and a string quartet accompaniment. Erin joins Mom and Dad on 5 of the 10 songs, one of them being her very own solo, Live For Jesus, written by her parents. As a trio, they have produced very creative covers of Jesus Is The Answer (one of Andrae Crouch's signature songs), Covered (made popular by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir) and We Are So Blessed (a Bill Gaither classic). Check out their a cappella arrangement of 3 older hymns in the Peace Medley.
A great CD for the whole family!
