Feeling a bit camera shy


Take a love for music, a passionate faith and an unquenchable desire to serve God; wrap it all up in one package and you've got Rick Shivers--a Christian singer/songwriter with a blended style and sound he calls "rockin'-country-bluesy praise & worship."
Rick found his love for music as a young boy, and has been playing in bands and writing songs since the age of fourteen. His style draws from diverse influences including old country, blues, pop, hard rock and the explosion of great contemporary Christian music.
Joining the Alliance Praise Team in 2001 provided a new avenue for Rick to use his talents and hone his skills as a singer and songwriter. Just a few years later he began leading music for Youth Worship services, was a Praise & Worship leader for the CTCYM 2005 Senior High Mission Trip, and reguarly leads or provides music for various retreats and gatherings.
In April of 2005, the independent release of his first, full length studio project, "Now Is The Time," marked a new chapter in Rick's career--one which he hopes to follow up soon. From the up-beat, inspirational "I'm Gonna Praise You Anyway" to intimate worship ballads like "Take Me Away" and a little in between, his lyrics speak straight from his heart and from the ups and downs of his own faith journey. The overall sound is a guitar-driven southern-rock/country/bluesy/gospel mix, giving Rick a unique style that blends well with his message of faith, inspiration and praise.
Rick's main desire is that he can use the passion God put in his heart to reach out to others with positive, inspirational music. "When I play and sing I get to encounter God," he often says, "and hopefully I can lead whoever's listening to do the same."
