Nic Stevens has experienced a lot of change in the last year.
He has transitioned from the youth pastor at Community of Hope Church to the creative worship and communications director. Also, the father of two has young children, who embody the very essence of change.
When he started writing the songs for his most recent musical project, change was a focus.
Stevens will release A Season Bound for Change Saturday during an event at the church. The six song CD is Stevens’ third musical project in recent years.
Going into this project, Stevens he had some different goals. He wanted to have a more acoustic sound and delve more into the lyrics. Overall, Stevens said he wanted the project to feel more grown-up and sophisticated than his previous two releases.
“I really like it,” said Stevens of the finished project.
The new songs delve into subjects such as confession and redemption.
“It’s coming clean about the dirt that we got,” said Stevens.
To produce the CD, Stevens worked with longtime collaborator Zach Parnell from Tone Flood Studios and musician Ryan Demlow. Both men played instruments on the record. Stevens said it was a blessing to work with the two men and that he feels the record is better because of them.
“Ryan is one of the most talented musicians I know,” said Stevens.
There will be release party for A Season Bound for Change at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 at Community of Hope Church. Hip Hop artist Trigga will open for Stevens. Cost is $5 at the door.
