The Lampstand Chronicles

The Lampstand Chronicles

By Rocky
The Lampstand Chronicles is about the pivotal stories from the future trailblazers from the Christian creative space - singers, writers, leaders and many more digital media artists. Each episode takes a look back at the stories that changed the course of each guests destiny. Because sometimes we look at where people are currently at and don't know the journey that God has taken them on. The stories of each guest are meant to encourage us and help us all realize that in this journey called life, we don't have to walk it alone.

- Matthew 5:14-16

EP 004 - STILL
On today's episode, I chatted with Will, releasing music under the name STILL - he's a singer, writer and an up and coming producer in the making out of Pennsylvania. If you go and check out STILL's Spotify or Apple Music page, don't let the number of releases fool you - it's all about quality over quantity, and releasing music in the right season. We had a chance to talk about the inspiration for STILL's sound, the right season and time for releasing music, the impact of the Christian creative space, and being on social media.

EP 003 - SSTEDI
On today's episode, I had a real talk conversation with SSTEDI - an artist out of Charlotte, North Carolina. Not only do we have similarities such as being born to Jamaican parents, but we also spent our fair share of time in the clubs. But like everything with God, He always brings our stories full cirlce, and now Sstedi and I can talk about God's saving grace. This episode was recorded long before the most recent events in the U.S. with the killing of George Floyd, but we also recognize that this podcast doesn't live in a bubble as we consistently talk about real life. It's my prayer that hearts will be turned towards Him in this time, and that we will remember that only He can save us. --Episode Timestamps: A Prayer for George Floyd - (00:55) The America's Got Talent Experience - (04:36) Church After the Club - (14:17) A Different Perspective in the Club - (23:27) Overcoming Lust - (30:37) Respecting the Process - (34:06) Family, Culture and No Regrets - (39:52) Not My Time, But God's Time - (48:00); You can follow Sstedi on Twitter: @sstedi----------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you for listening to The Lampstand Chronicles, be sure to connect with me on Instagram: @rockysaintamand, @thelampstandchronicles or by email: thelampstandchronicles@gmail.com. --Rocky
