Stu G and his UK-based worship band Delirious? changed the face of worship for an entire generation. Their influence is felt to this day, even though the band stopped touring in 2009 after almost two decades of not only influencing Christian music, but the mainstream music scene.
Their 1994 breakout song “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever” has been hailed as a “modern worship classic” and certainly broke new ground in its day for its use of repetition, if for nothing else. Alongside Stu G, prolific songwriter Martin Smith penned international worship anthems such as “Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble?” and many more that were to set the tone in British-based worship and touch the globe with its ground-breaking ministry, even touring with Bon Jovi for a season.
These days, Stu G is a popular guitarist who has traveled with every big name you can imagine, including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Natalie Grant, and many more. His latest work, The Beatitudes Project, calls upon many of his long-standing relationships to step up to the mic to bring the words of Christ to life in fresh new ways. Audrey Assad, All Sons and Daughters, Joel Houston, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, and many more joined with Stu to make this project a must-listen for all aspiring songwriters (and every believer, too).
The powerful message in this week’s out-of-the-archives show is that Stu G is a lifelong pioneer always looking to “enhance the creative spirit” of everyone he meets. Unwilling to rest on the successes of the past, he continues to write, produce, and blaze new trails in creative worship.
