Stu Garrard (Stu G) to explore the Beatitudes in major new project

THE ONE TIME guitarist with Delirious?, Stu Garrard (Stu G), is the creative force behind the book The Beatitudes Project: Words From The Hill, An Invitation To The Unexpected (NavPress) and a full-length album 'Beatitudes' (The Fuel Music) set for release in the spring of 2017. The album's songwriter Garrard has explored the renowned Scripture with such celebrated artists as Amy Grant, Michael W Smith, Matt Maher, Martin Smith, Audrey Assad, Joel Houston, All Sons & Daughters, Jon Mark McMillan, Amanda Cook, Propaganda and others. The first single from the project, "Oh Blessed", in addition to Stu G and co-writer Anthony Skinner, features The McCrary Sisters. Said Stu, "'Oh Blessed' is the introduction song to the Beatitudes project and is the only song so far that speaks of all the themes in the Beatitudes. When things are broken, when things aren't working out, God is on our side and fully present with us. We can lift our heads and hear the invitation to carry on." CR
