Internationally acclaimed singer songwriter, Steph Macleod, has released his long awaited third studio album 'Gold'. The new 10 track album draws inspiration from Steph’s own recovery and features an eclectic range of musical styles including Folk, Americana, Rock, Celtic and Electronica.
"The purpose of the ‘Gold’ campaign is to encourage conversation about mental health and recovery while raising awareness and tackling stigma. The songs were inspired by my own journey of recovery, and I hope to encourage a deeper conversation about emotional transparency. The more we talk, listen and ask questions, the more we come to understand; it’s OK to come to God in our brokenness. I’ve seen & experienced first hand how understanding and compassion draws healing and hope from a place of brokenness and fear."
Steph Macleod is a singer songwriter, worship leader and Mental Health Awareness campaigner. He has been in full time ministry since releasing his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Light In The Darkest Of Nights’ in 2010.
“I have a passion for God and for people. It’s my hope that the songs I write will bring them closer together.” Steph shares the hope he found in Jesus Christ through word and song all over the world. He draws inspiration from his own lived experience. He is committed to sharing the Gospel and the power of God’s saving grace.
