Ryan Stevenson, the award-winning artist and songwriter, has just released a new EP. Titled Weathering The Storm – The Music (Gotee Records), the six-song project is available now and includes new songs (“Mosaic,” “Take Me Back”), along with reimagined acoustic takes from a few of his well-known hits, such as “Eye of the Storm” and “When We Fall Apart,” which now features Vince Gill and Amy Grant. A new lyric video for the acoustic version of “Eye of the Storm” is also out now and can be viewed below.
Stevenson was inspired to release Weathering The Storm – The Music while on the road this past year with his “Home Concert Experience.” As a way to provide a unique concert experience during the many unknowns from the pandemic season, Stevenson ended up performing more than 75 concerts around the country, bringing an acoustic live show to fans’ living rooms or backyards. The “Home Concert Experience” allowed him to connect more personally with fans while also sharing moments from his recent book release, Eye of the Storm: Experiencing God When You Can’t See Him (Harvest House).
“What a crazy season it’s been as we’ve all had to weather some storms,” Ryan Stevenson shares. “I’ve had some of these songs brewing for a long time and I’m so excited to finally give these songs their life and space. I pray these songs speak life and draw you to the Father’s heart today!”
Ryan Stevenson also hosts his own podcast, “Weathering the Storm,” via K-LOVE’s AccessMore platform. Now in its third season, which launches in September, guests will include Brian “Head” Welch of KORN, Rhett Walker, Jordan St. Cyr, to name a few.
Previous seasons have included interviews with TobyMac, Amy Grant, MercyMe’s Bart Millard, author of “The Shack” Paul Young, psychotherapist and master teacher of the Enneagram Ian Morgan Cron, MLB legend Darryl Strawberry, Mac Powell, Danny Gokey, and more. Don’t miss his podcast, and also be sure to catch Stevenson on tour this fall on the “Acoustic Storytime Tour” with Jason Gray and Aaron Shust.

Additionally, it was just five years ago this month when Stevenson’s hit song “Eye of the Storm” became a No. 1 Billboard Christian radio single. Holding the top spot for 16 weeks, the song later became RIAA Gold-certified while winning a GMA Dove Award and a Billboard Music Award nomination.
