Backstage Revival's new 'Christmas Worship' 2-song EP offers both the spirit of Christmas past and present. It includes an enchanting acoustic arrangement of the traditional carol "What Child is This?" coupled with a new single "I See a Star," a worshipful contemplation of the Christmas story and the profound hope it brings to the world.
The blend of old and new balances the comfort of the familiar with the rejuvenation of the new. Both songs reflect the awe and wonder of Christ's birth with lustrous string solo melodies woven into graceful arrangements underneath the vocals. The EP will be available on all streaming platforms on November 19, 2021.
Backstage Revival is comprised of husband-and-wife singer/songwriters John and Anne Lazenby. This duo leads people into the presence of God through soulful Americana-style worship. Based in Southern California, John and Anne serve as worship leaders at a local Vineyard Community Church. Both John and Anne have been writing songs and leading worship since the early 1990's.
When the songs that John and Anne had written in private devotion had spilled over into the public setting, it became apparent that there was a hunger for this type of authentic worship. Eager to serve their community, the Lazenbys partnered with engineer Casey Corum, Director of Production and A&R of Vineyard Music, to produce their original music. The duo continues to release new singles following their debut March 2020 album release entitled "Backstage Revival." John and Anne have the full support of their congregation, pastors, and most importantly their four beautiful children who couldn’t be happier for their parents’ musical endeavors!
