Stephen Christian, the former lead vocalist and
songwriter of Anberlin, one of the greatest alternative (Christian)
rock bands, is as talented and brilliant as musicians get. His
writing and vocal style is a combination that is unlike any other,
one you'll never forget.
Anberlin having sold more than a million albums in their 12-year existence, this Floridian band has toured the world with some of the biggest names and their music has peaked in the top ten on various Billboard charts.
Stephen, a devout follower of Jesus Christ, used (and continues to use) his talents to spread the word of hope through writing and singing about real life events and the struggles and victories we face or will face.
On today's episode, SBD Co-Host and Anberlin-fan Brian Klepacki sat down with Stephen Christian Arnold and had an awesome chat about passion, purpose, struggles, and hope.
You will not want to skip over this inspiring and raw
conversation that really dug down deep into the 'stuff' we all
carry with us each day.
(And if you haven't heard any of their music, you definitely need to add Anberlin to your playlist. They rock!)
