Tired of cliché worship lyrics & homogeneous harmonic structures? Deep theological lyrics & beautifully intense music will turn your worship experiences into life-changed encounters with the Father of Love! Joey's songs are filled with anthems celebrating Christ as the Supreme Ruler of the cosmos & heart-filled ballads crying out for God’s Kingdom to be revealed!!!

In the album "New Day Dawning", Joey returns again and again to the reality that Jesus is King in these songs, whether the musical setting leans towards techno-pop/rock (“Now Is The Time”) or punctuating prog rock (“You Will Reign”).

His trademark sense of rising dynamics makes “The Lord’s Prayer” a standout tune that bursts forth with ambient, interstellar overdrives. The breathtaking, ethereal catharsis of "The Great Romance" beckons listeners to return to their First Love. With complete vulnerability, “Love Or Prostitution” graphically describes Joey’s inner struggle with lust yet leaves listeners with great hope of freedom because of encountering the Source of freedom.

Ever since he was a young kid, Joey Stontz has loved to worship God. After 2 years of playing guitar, he began leading worship when he was 15 years old. He carries a tremendous love for God's presence, an infectious abandonment to Jesus and a deep desire to see the Holy Spirit touch the Body of Christ.

Growing up as a missionary kid, Joey has been surrounded by people of various cultures, has encountered terrible poverty, abandoned orphans, and has cross-culturally dialoged with people of different religions. Joey's heart for the poor and oppressed carry over into his music, which is amazingly and incredibly sonically diverse--ranging anywhere from joyful dance pop to heart touching ballads; guitar centered arena rock to techno synth flare. Even so, Joey's music still contains a depth, honesty and richness that is hard to come by. The diversity of the album only enhances the pleasure of the listener

His influences range from Sigur Ros, Coldplay, Delirious, Hillsong United, Owl City and Chris Tomlin.

He has been the youth pastor and worship leader at Way of the Church in Blaine, MN since February 2005. For the past four years, Joey's church has been experiencing a great renewal and revival. Many people have been saved, delivered and healed as a result of the Holy Spirit moving in power. For more information, go to
