Christian Stephens (Creation CR1001) 1980

 

Michael Christian Shaw and Robert Stephen Miller are Christian Stephens.  They together with numerous additional musicians put a lot  of care and attention into this independent release – an appealing light rock to rock project with progressive pop overtures similar to Gospel Seed, Stewart & Kyle, or even Seals & Crofts.  Has a very clean Professional sound with excellent production and arrangement led by sparkling 12-string guitar and moving harmonies.  Good dynamic range, from mellow piano ballad passages to nostolgic heavier moments including some hard-edged guitar.  Occasional symphonic strings and pop horns fit in just fine.  A musical outreach of Come Alive Ministries, Medford, New Jersey.  Followed by ingeniously titled Christian Stephens II and Christian Stephens III.
