Nashville, TN… Dec. 13, 2010… Most recently known for his energetic and powerful song “Say Say,” featured on Passion: Awakening, the newest member of the sixstepsrecords’ roster, Kristian Stanfill, is ready to unveil his sophomore record Mountains Move on Jan. 11, 2011.

Produced by Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, MercyMe, Sanctus Real) and Rusty Varenkamp (Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman), the songs featured on Mountains Move stand ready to bring hope and a voice to people and churches all over the world.

“These songs are about having faith in God,” Stanfill notes, “and believing that God is who He says He is, no matter what our circumstances are. There’s a beautiful phrase: ‘Let’s stop living according to the size of our issues and start living according to the size of our God.’ That’s really what the record is saying. The situation might seem impossible, really bleak and dark right now, but remember how big our God is. Remember His promises. That gives you hope.”

Mountains Move represents a significant departure for Stanfill from many years of songwriting solo. He stepped outside of his comfort zone and fully embraced the concept of co-writing, as he teamed up with Dove Award winning songwriter Jason Ingram, GRAMMY ® Award nominated artist Chris Tomlin and Hillsong’s Reuben Morgan.

“If I were completely honest,” Stanfill confesses, “I think part of writing solo was my pride holding onto that process a little bit too tightly. I learned this year that when you let other people in the process, when you get a team around you, it becomes so much more fun.”

Critics were able to get a sneak peak at what was yet to come on Stanfill’s EP Day After Day that released back in September, and included his latest radio single Day After Day. The song is currently climbing the radio charts and is achieving airplay in major markets on stations such as KLOVE, KJLY in St. Louis, WQME in Indianapolis and WBSN in New Orleans.

Here's just an example of what people had to say about Day After Day ...

“The lyrics are nourishing for people who need encouragement when they flip on the radio. The songs remind us of who is ultimately in control. They carry hope to the tired and weak and remind us of the promises God made—the promises we so quickly forget when trials come. The tunes are catchy enough to be remembered, and his voice is clear and beautiful. I look forward to the full album releasing in January 2011.”-Hollywood Jesus

“Bridging the gap between last year’s debut and his 2011 full-length, Stanfill releases a five-song EP featuring three new studio tracks maxed with electrifying riffs, pounding drums and apt frontman vocals… proving the burgeoning worship leader worthy of his elite Passion label status.”-CCM Magazine

“Kristian Stanfill's 'Day After Day' is a compilation of songs of encouragement creating a worshipful heart within the listeners.”

“ ‘Lord Almighty’ sounds right out of Chris Tomlin’s catalog and should pick up quickly in congregations all over. With a refrain that plays easy in corporate worship, Stanfill’s onto something special here.”

To kick off the new year, Stanfill will lead worship at Passion 2011 in Atlanta, GA on January 1-4, alongside labelmates Chris Tomlin, David Crowder*Band, Charlie Hall, Matt Redman and Christy Nockels. It was at last year’s Passion conference that Stanfill led over 22,000 on-fire college-aged students in spirited worship. During the four-day event, attendees responded to the challenge to wed worship and justice by giving more than 1 million dollars on-site to various causes around the world to help those in need through the Do Something Now campaign. Do Something Now is a movement launched by Passion in 2007 and has funneled more than 2 million dollars to those in greatest need throughout the world.
