An Evening of Songs and Stories with Peter Furler, Ryan Stevenson, and Special Guest Austin French
For one night only, Peter Furler and Ryan Stevenson come together to provide an intimate evening of songs and stories. As the former frontman of Newsboys, Peter Furler knows a thing or two about hit songs, penning massive hits “He Reigns”, “Something Beautiful” and dozens more, and as the writer behind 2016’s smash radio single “Eye of the Storm” and a former paramedic, Ryan Stevenson’s songs touch the hearts of listeners, often when they need it most. Don’t miss this special night bringing these two incredible men of faith together, where they also share stories behind the songs that reveal their testimony of God’s faithful work in their lives and in the world. Opening the show will be new Fair Trade Services recording artist, Austin French, first runner-up from the initial season of ABC’s “Rising Star” show.
After 22 years as the main creative force behind Newsboys, followed by his 2011 solo success, On Fire, Peter Furler could be excused, if he had decided to mellow out a bit or rest on his laurels. Instead, the writer behind 27 #1 radio singles has come back with one of the strongest albums of his career, Sun and Shield. Reteaming with longtime producer/lyricist Steve Taylor for the first time since Newsboys gold-certified Adoration album, Sun and Shield finds Furler combining an ambitious collection of new songs with a more muscular, band-driven sound that harkens back to the glory days of Take Me To Your Leader. Sun and Shield is the sound of an artist at the peak of his creative powers.
The music of Ryan Stevenson blends influences from soul, pop, and some of the great guitarists to create engaging acoustic guitar driven melodies. Embracing the idea that some of the most profound moments of worship emerge not from mountain-top experiences but from difficult, perhaps even catastrophic circumstance gives Ryan’s lyrics a poetic vulnerability reflecting honestly on the difficulties everyone faces. At the age of 18, his youth pastor surprised him by placing a guitar in his hands, stating, “I felt like the Lord was telling me to buy this for you” Ryan matured his musical gifts by playing at youth groups, summer camps and mission trips.
