Kristian Stanfill is a clear and distinctive voice in this generation and his passionate and energy-infused worship fits no set mold. Whether he's leading a group of teenagers, college students or adults, his heart and authenticity cut through and people are drawn close to God.
An Atlanta native, Stanfill began playing music at 13, leading worship for his home church throughout high school. After graduating college in 2002, he started leading worship at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga. It was there he met Louie Giglio, who, in the fall of 2004, asked Stanfill to lead worship for 7:22, a popular weekly young adult gathering Giglio established in 1995. In 2005, he became actively involved with the Passion movement, first leading a community group at Passion 2005, a conference for university students, then as a lead worshipper at Passion 2006. In 2008, he led at both Passion Regionals USA and on the Passion World Tour.
"I have had the privilege of working along side Kristian Stanfill for the last five years in settings where his unique voice and passionate heart for God's fame have emerged in beautiful ways," says sixstepsrecords founder and director Louie Giglio. "Kristian is a clear and distinctive voice in this generation and a great fit within our small sixsteps family. We are excited to have the opportunity to serve him by making the songs God is entrusting to him available to people around the globe."

If you're a fan of contemporary, upbeat, rock 'n' roll style praise music, it may be just what you're looking for. I had a hard time getting "lost" in it.
I guess it's just not my thing.
I really wanted to like it because I've read so many wonderful things about these musicians.
To each his own, I guess.
So with that background, I was hopeful for this album, but just had a really hard time getting into it. The music was of mediocre musical quality, if I'm not listening carefully, it just "feels" like its all the same overbearing sound for the whole album.
The lyrics for the most part do better. They are easy to understand, tend to focus on God and not man (not as much as I would have liked however), and do a good job of revealing Stanfill's Love for God. Yet even the lyrics tend to degrade into the repetition that in my opinion marked the instrumentation.
This cd is not bad; it is just not good. If you are looking for high quality praise & worship that blends good music with even better lyrics, I would recommend you wholeheartedly consider anything by Sovereign Grace Music (Worship God Live is a great place to start.).
This is a very talented young man. His voice is so smooth and I can feel that he believes in what he sings. I did like the messages of the songs. I liked I Need You, Glowing the best if I have to choose some favorites.
This will be loved by high school- college age and anyone who likes to worship by Christian Rock. These are not quiet songs they are to get you on fire for the Lord..The beat and style could be a great tool to bring a younger person to the Lord. The Gospel is proclaimed and they will be loving the beat then the words will sink into their hearts and as they sing the Lord can speak.
Like I said this is 5 star work and I can put aside my taste this is very uplifting and inspiring music. Even though rock is not my favorite this did not offend me or make me just turn it off by any means. Some rock makes me want to run screaming from the room LOL, not this...not at all.
Kristian has a pleasant voice and the music (mostly rock) is enjoyable.
The 11 songs on the album are (with my rating):
1. Alive And Running (4/5)
2. Kingdom (5/5)
3. Lord Of All (5/5)
4. Go (4/5)
5. Beautiful Jesus (5/5, my favorite)
6. Wake Up (3/5, could have been great except the refrain was distracting)
7. Faithful (5/5, my daughter's favorite)
8. I Need You (5/5)
9. Glowing (5/5, my son's favorite)
10. Lead Us On (5/5)
11. You Will Always Be (5/5)
