Gotee Records’ Ryan Stevenson will release a new full-length studio album on April 6th titled No Matter What. Last week, Stevenson released a new song from the upcoming album, “Faithful (feat. Amy Grant)” written by Stevenson, producer Bryan Fowler and Amy Grant. The song was also featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian playlist and Top Christian playlist.

“I loved working with Ryan on ‘Faithful,'” shares Amy Grant. “Can you call it ‘work’ when everyone is throwing in creative ideas and amping up the good feeling around a great song? I hated for our time in the studio to end.”
Earlier this year, Stevenson released the title track of the new album featuring Bart Millard of MercyMe. The album features it, “Faithful”, the hit song “The Gospel” and more. Produced by Bryan Fowler for Man Cub Music House the album is a result of Stevenson’s prayer for his songs to exist for a reason.
“Over the course of the last several years, I’ve continued to ask the Lord to give me songs that exist for a reason,” says Stevenson. “As we were working on this new record, a reoccurring theme I felt the Lord continually whisper to my heart was ‘beloved identity.’ I, like many of us, grew up in the church- a religious environment, where we weren’t necessarily nurtured and taught about God’s grace, patience and compassion. As I continue to grow and experience life, the truth I continue to encounter is ‘I am His son, no matter what.'”
