Michael Stern is a composer, folksinger and inspirational speaker who provides creative leadership for professional conferences, retreats, worship services and children’s programs.
“His music has a clarity & purity that has been formed by faith & strengthened in hope.” Jim Douglass (author)
“… a steady & vibrant voice for justice in the face of violence & oppression.” Dave Hall (Physicians for Social Responsibility)
“It is Mike’s own life commitment to love & justice that most commends his music. You will laugh. You will be moved. But don’t expect to get too comfortable. You will also be challenged and, I expect, changed”. Reverend Tim Phillips (Seattle First Baptist)
Blending meaningful content with humor, Michael accompanies himself on guitar and banjo and is joined by a gifted group of musicians on each of his 10 CD's, including the likes of Eric Smith, William Limbach and Grammy nominated pianist David Lanz. His songs draw inspiration from diverse literary, historical, spiritual and personal influences and range from thought-provoking to humorous, and from romantic to spiritual. Michael's performances and presentations utilize a wide array of original songs, stories & community-building experiences focused on nurturing compassion, peace, justice, hope and healing; all while generating group participation and discussion. His music evokes feeling of passion, joy and wonder at the beauty of creation and human diversity.
"Michael Stern's music is an anthem for an America as it should be – a reminder that peace and justice should be our highest moral values." David Horsey (Pulitzer Prize winning columnist)
