From his years with Petra and beyond, John continues to connect with fans and earn new ones. I’m thrilled to have John be a part of our event!”
With more than three decades worth of water under the musical bridge, John Schlitt has earned multiple Gold Records, Grammys and Dove Awards. He has toured all over the world and has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame as a member of Petra. After 20 years fronting Petra, one of the most successful rock bands in Christian music history, Schlitt released his third solo album, The Grafting, on 4K Records. Still passionate about the message of the Gospel and compelled to deliver it in his own inimitable fashion, he called on the multiple talents of rising star producer/songwriter Dan Needham (Amy Grant, Petra, Michael McDonald) to help craft his vision.
The Graftingfinds Schlitt exploring uncharted musical territory, while remaining anchored by his unmistakable voice. It is a combination that is sure to please his legion of fans and attract a new generation of adherents. At once intimate and accessible, The Graftingis without a doubt Schlitt’s most potent solo album to date.
The Graftingis available on 4K Records and is distributed internationally by Go Global Entertainment. For more information on John Schlitt and his latest project, The Grafting, visit www.johnwschlitt.com.”
