Canadian-born Religious folkie Steve Bell got his begin in a family group gospel band which toured in back of his father, a Baptist minister who served being a prison chaplain in federal government penitentiaries. After senior high school, he toured night clubs in some little-known rings before becoming a member of the acclaimed Elias, Schritt & Bell; existence on the highway eventually triggered an emergency of faith, nevertheless, and in 1988 Bell was created once again, retiring from carrying out to become stay-at-home dad. The move afforded him the chance to focus on his songwriting with a fresh determination, with the urging of his coach, Dad Bob MacDougall, Bell documented his 1st CCM release, Convenience My People, for the Signpost label. The album’s achievement encouraged him to come back to music full-time, and following attempts including Deep Phone calls to Deep, Burning up Ember, as well as the Feast further founded Bell’s growing group of fans. His first launch within the Peg Music label, Romantics & Mystics, gained a Greatest Gospel Recording Juno honor in 1997; Feast of Months followed 2 yrs later.
