His album Proof of Life, produced by Howard Benson, is up for "Rock Album of the Year" at the 45th annual Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards, which will take place on October 7 at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Stapp is nominated in the "Rock Album of the Year" Dove category along with The Almost's Fear Inside Our Bones, Skillet's Rise, We As Human's self-titled album, as well as Christian rock band Red's Release The Panic.
Proof of Life was released via the record label, Wind-Up Records, and it garnered a favorable review from Digital Journal. It features such singles as "Slow Suicide" and "Dying to Live," which is the closing track of the CD.
In my conversation with Stapp, he told me that "Dying to Live" came from his soul at a time in his life that the was "dying to continue to move forward," hence he was approaching his life with a new and fresh perspective.
This past June, Stapp played a solo show at The Emporium in Patchogue, Long Island, where he played material from his latest solo studio offering.
