Stephen Rew, Singer/Songwriter
Stephen Rew had an amazing first year as a singer/songwriter and recording artist. After being asked to sing “Another Hero is Headed Home” at the 2013 Inspirational Country Music Awards concert, he released the song to Christian Country/Gospel stations in February 2014. It climbed to #21 on the Power Source chart and Stephen was nominated as a Top 10 New Artist of the Year in July. He was the speaker/entertainer for the 2014 ICM Membership Breakfast last November. In August he released his second song to radio (“The Day the Thunder Called My Name”) and it is currently at #14 on the Inspirational Country Chart. Stephen put out a debut EP called “Everyday Heroes” on November.
He just released a third song to radio called “It’s About to Rain” — a foot-stomping tune about redemption and grace. The lyrics use a tongue twisting rhyme scheme to describe two modern day parables and a powerful Old Testament story that illustrate God’s eternal love. The Biblical story is Elijah’s showdown against the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel (I Kings 18). Elijah called upon the Lord to send rain after severe famine had destroyed the land. The Lord sent the rain in such a dramatic way that no one could doubt His power and His love as He called his children back home.
