Yes I may be Stephen's brother but I do have a few comments, not just about the review but also about Stephen's work in general.
Stephen has been writing Christian songs since his early teen years. The Miraculous Project as with most of his work to date is Written, Performed, Mixed, Produced and Mastered by Stephen without any help from others.
Yes I agree his voice may not be of top star quality, but believe me each track is maticulously and tirelessly recorded. Any of these tracks could be done by Matt Redmen, Chris Tomlin or even Delierious.
What you have to remember here is that Stephen does not have the clought that other mainstream Christian Artists have because Stephen hasn't hit the big time yet.
I play drums in my local church and have played piano myself since I was 3. I've played and performed some of Stephen's songs with him so I know how good they are.
Often, the Simplest songs are the best, ie "Over the Mountains," 4 chord progressions but a great song because it is well known.
So I Implore you, take another listen and enjoy Stephens inginuity, music talent which is truly blessed by God.
Please review and put the word out for that too it is getting airplay I believe on Premier radio at the mo.
God Bless. Jon
