Never in his wildest dreams did Zach Williams think that he would be in this place of writing and recording music in the Christian music industry, especially from years of hard living on the road while in a rock & roll band. He thought his life was fulfilling and he was doing what he had always wanted to do, but that left him empty, lonely, and further away from God and his family than ever before. For years he sought meaning and fulfillment in the unhealthy, and sometimes dangerous, lifestyle he was living. He eventually found refuge in a fellow band mate, thanks to their countless late nights on the road talking about God, faith and what their lives could actually be like beyond the band. “Even though I grew up going to church every Sunday as a kid, even though I knew right from wrong and said I was a Christian, there was absolutely nothing about the way I was living that reflected these things,” Williams shares. “It took a trip to Europe in 2012 to stop me dead in my tracks and show me just how lost I really was.” That year, with his wife by his side, his faith became real to him and he found renewal by dedicating his life to Christ. He hasn’t looked back since.
Stephen was a homeschooled, pastor’s kid that used to hang out with the local school marching band for fun. To say he was one of the cool kids would be a massive overstatement. But he never let that get him down. He started playing music when he was 9 years old because of a jet ski accident that caused him to lose hearing in his left ear. While in recovery for several months, he picked up his mother’s old guitar and learned to play. At the age of 13, he began writing songs and leading worship for his father's church. Stephen now lives in Mansfield, Georgia with his wife, Anna. As of January 2020, he has signed a recording contract with Capitol CMG and is working on music to be released very soon. His alternative/ indie-pop sound is something very unique to the world of music. Stephen’s songwriting is something he uses to encourage himself and wants to encourage others as well. “Throughout my life, I’ve struggled with anxiety and discouragement. Most of the time I’m writing songs to myself. My hope is that the music can help others, as much as it’s helped me to create it.”
