BandChristianBlues

My music is a mix of blues/rock and gospel. My purpose is to bring a style of music that is not ordinary to christian listeners. It is uplifting, fun, and is built around laid back acoustic guitar and rockin' riffs.

Biography

I have been playing the guitar for over 11 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I just finished up my debut album "Searchin" about a year ago and am very excited about it. I've grown up listing to really old acoustic artists like Robert Johnson, but some of my other influences have been artists such as Keb Mo, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Ernie Hawkins. I want to have a christian style of music that focuses just as much on the music as it does the lyrics. I first learned to play the guitar, then I learned to sing, I want to keep it in that order. Lets focus on good guitar playing and music and go from there.

Lyrics

Searchin'

Written By: Stephen Smith


Searchin’ across this world
I don’t know what I might find
But I’m lookin’ for something, for someone
That will take this light and hold it high
Up in the sky, for everyone, for everything to see

Cause travelin’ alone can get lonely
And holdin’ this light alone is heavy
But where two or three are gathered as one
They will shine just like the sun
For the whole world to see

The world gets darker everyday
But if someone could stand and say
I’m gonna hold my light up real high
To show what he’s done for you and I
We could save this world

Won't Be Long

Written By: Stephen Smith


Well I don’t know what you’ve been told
But Jesus Christ the king of old
Is comin’ back one day and it won’t be long

All along I have heard
The message preached right out of the word
And everywhere it says that he’s comin’ back

Yea, he’s comin’ back and it won’t be long
If you’re ready then you’ll be gone
So look toward the eastern sky, cause it won’t be long

Well it’s been awhile and I can’t wait
When he comes I don’t wanna be late
Cause when that trumpet sounds I’m gone

Gone, gone , gone I ain’t comin back
Gone, gone, gone ain’t lookin' back jack
Not even turning around to say goodbye

Gone, gone, gone I ain’t comin back
Gone, gone, gone ain’t lookin’ back jack
Not even turning around to say goodbye

Yea, he’s comin’ back and it won’t be long
If you’re ready then you’ll be gone
So look toward the eastern sky, cause it won’t be long

Walking That Way

Written By: Stephen Smith


Sittin’ on the side of the road
Thinkin’ about a place that I’m gonna go

Take my hand and come with me
To that place up in glory

Streets of gold and gates of pearl
Ain’t gonna need this world no more

So take my hand and come with me
We’re goin’ to a place that’s holy

It’s a long road only one way to go

So get on your feet and lift up your hands
If ya wanna go to the Promised Land

If ya wanna go to the Promised Land
