Nashville, TN (March 24, 2009) - Legendary recording artist John Schlitt -- solo artist, lead singer for GRAMMY Award-winning Christian band Petra and former lead singer for mainstream rock band Head East -- will be joining forces with Swedish soul/R&B group Adahl for a special European tour this summer. Adahl is comprised of brothers Frank and Simon Adahl, both formerly of award-winning Swedish contemporary Christian music group Edin/Adahl.
This summer's tour marks a special reunion for Schlitt and Adahl, who toured together in the early 1990s. Backed by a full band, the artists will introduce European fans to their new solo projects and take a nostalgic look back at their earlier hits.

With more than three decades worth of water under the musical bridge, John Schlitt has earned multiple Gold Records, GRAMMYs and Dove Awards. He has toured all over the world and has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame as a member of Petra. After 20 years fronting Petra, one of the most successful rock bands in Christian music history, Schlitt released his third solo album, The Grafting, on 4K Records. Still passionate about the message of the Gospel and compelled to deliver it in his own inimitable fashion, he called on the multiple talents of rising star producer/songwriter Dan Needham (Amy Grant, Petra, Michael McDonald) to help craft his vision.
The result, a stunning collection of nine new songs and one old favorite, is an astonishing, multi-layered look into the very nature of love and life, lost and found in Christ. While the moods may be many, at their core, they are all pure Schlitt. "Dan is my son-in-law, and I had him produce it for me because I knew the sound he would bring would be exactly what the album should sound like," Schlitt says.
That close bond between father-in-law and son-in-law allowed for the creation of a uniquely new style for Schlitt--one that appeals not only to the Boomer Generation who has followed his music throughout the years, but one that is also relevant to younger generations. "I wanted it to be an album that would appeal to folks who grew up on Christian rock 'n' roll, an album for folks who want some tension in their music, but not too much," Schlitt explains.
The Grafting finds Schlitt exploring uncharted musical territory, while remaining anchored by his unmistakable voice. It is a combination that is sure to please his legion of fans and attract a new generation of adherents. At once intimate and accessible, The Grafting is without a doubt Schlitt's most potent solo album to date.
The Grafting is available on 4K Records and is distributed nationally by TAG Artist Group and internationally by Go Global Entertainment, LLC. For more information on John Schlitt and his latest project, The Grafting, visit www.johnwschlitt.com.
