Stu G, guitarist, songwriter, producer and founding member of Delirious?, has released Have You Heard 2015, a remastered 20th anniversary edition, The album features every original member of Delirious?
The band’s promoters said Have You Heard 2015 captures the youthful energy and passion of Stu G, Martin Smith, Tim Jupp, Stew Smith and Jon Thatcher before they were known as Delirious?, the band widely credited with founding the modern worship movement. Delirious? touredthe world several times over before disbanding in 2009.
“Beyond all the nostalgia of going back and rediscovering this music that pre-dated Delirious?, it’s remarkable how well these songs have held up to the test of time,” said Tony Patoto, who managed Delirious? before starting The Fuel Music in 2008. “Stu G has uncovered an extraordinary album that will shine like new once again for every Delirious? fan and fans of modern worship.”
The Fuel Music is distributing the album, which Stu G produced through his StuGiology Music.
In addition to the tracks recorded in 1995, Have You Heard 2015 also features two “reinvented” songs from the original tracks that were re-recorded and produced by Matt Stanfield: “The Rain” and “Rest.” www.stugworld.com
Big Daddy weaves together new tour, album
Big Daddy Weave, which has landed its first radio No. 1 single from the new Beautiful Offerings album, will appear in concert at 7 p.m. Feb. 3 at Calvary Chapel Oceanside. Doors open at 6 p.m. The Beautiful Offering tour also features Plumb and Jordan Feliz.
The hit song “My Story” landed at No. 1 on seven different charts, including Nielsen BDS’ NCA Monitored and AC Monitored, as well as Mediabase’s Christian AC Published. It was co-written by Big Daddy Weave’s Mike Weaver and Grammy-nominated songwriter Jason Ingram.
The song came from a transformational time in Big Daddy Weave’s story and reflects the outcome of nightly conversations the band members had following the ministry time at the end of each of its performances. Big Daddy Weave’s ministry time is an intentional time of dedicated dialogue and one-on-one prayer with the people who attend their concerts. The band has seen God work in powerful ways in the lives of people across the country.
“If I told you my story, you’d see hope, you’d see love, you’d see victory, all these things, but it’s not mine,” Weaver said. “My story is really the story of what God has done in our lives, and the goodness of that is that it awakens things in other people. Our story is really just part of His story.”
Tickets are $19.50 to $25. The $50 VIP tickets include a pre-show Q&A, poster, tour lanyard and early entry into the venue.
The church is located at 3715 Oceanic Way. www.bigdaddyweave
