Chris Stevens, the three-time GRAMMY® award-winning record producer, mix-engineer and renowned songwriter, has re-signed with Capitol CMG Publishing under a new long-term contract. In his 15-year career, Stevens has handled producing, songwriting, programming and mixing for numerous artists under Capitol CMG, Word Records, Provident Label Group, INO Records, Gotee Records, and Curb Records.
"It's genuinely an honor for Capitol Christian Music Publishing to re-sign Chris Stevens to our talented roster of songwriters and producers," says Peter York, President of Capitol CMG Label Group. "Chris consistently delivers great songs, great production treatment and world class mixes for our projects. I'm grateful for his creative contributions and even more grateful for his friendship."
Stevens' current projects include producing TobyMac's upcoming album and co-writing Michael W. Smith's current single "Sky Spills Over" as well as Sony Nashville artist Steven Lee Olsen's "Raised By A Good Time." Stevens is also credited with programming and keyboard on Carrie Underwood's hit song "Cowboy Casanova."
"Chris brings a rare blend of skill, work ethic, experience, humility, and mentorship to the music community," Casey McGinty, Executive Vice President of Capitol CMG Publishing, states. "We are honored to continue our partnership with him."
Capitol CMG Publishing and Chris Stevens also announce the co-signing of Bryan Fowler to a songwriting agreement. Formerly signed to Forefront Records as a member of the Christian band Abandon, Fowler began focusing on songwriting and production after five years of touring. He has been writing and producing alongside Chris Stevens since last year, per an exclusive production deal with Stevens.
