With four straight Grammy Award nominations for Rock
Gospel album and a string of No.1 radio hits throughout the last
decade, Geoff Moore chose at the height of his success to take some
time off for an introspective look at life and has emerged with
a new style, new lyrics, a new look and new lease on life on his
ForeFront Records first-ever, self-titled project, Geoff Moore.
Fans of Geoff Moore know of this Michigan native's
10-plus year run with his rock band. The Distance and his award
winning song collaborations with his best friend Steven Curtis Chapman.
While The Distance disbanded in1998, and Moore has moved on to the
next season of his musical career, the songwriting collaborations
with Chapman have not only continued, but also strengthened.
On this new project, Moore and his buddy Chapman co-wrote
three of the 11 songs, even performing one as a duet. The song,
"Thanks To You", is filled with the fun and joy of a true
friendship, and even adds a little behind-the-scenes humor as Gospel
Music Association Dove Award winning producer, Monroe Jones (Chris
Rice, Third Day) kept some of the original studio fun in the mix.
Moore and Chapman met in the early 80's when Moore sang on a demo
for one of Chapman's new songs. Chapman liked Moore's voice and
Moore liked Chapman's songwriting. The friendship grew. Chapman
has recorded several songs co-written with Moore as well, including
the No.1 songs "Speechless," and "The Great Adventure",
which brought the songwriting duo the 1993 Dove Award for Song of
