• West Coast Music

    As the name indicates West Coast Music has its origin on the American West Coast. The music emphasizes melody, harmonies and arrangements, and the vocal and instrumental performances are always with great skill and of high quality. The music is often performed by pop/rock artists from the American West Coast, but is in no way limited to any geografical area.

Steven J. Camp (born April 13, 1955) is an American contemporary Christian music artist with an adult contemporary pop sound.

He sold more than a million albums. He also has written or co-written 21 number one singles since his debut in 1978 as a solo artist. Today his popularity continues mostly in his Christian writing addressing current trends and matters of Reformed Theology. He started Audience One Ministries and has a blog covering Christian music, biblical study, reformation, and revival.

He is well known for his strong view that Christian musicians are called to make direct, uncompromising music that confronts the world with the message of the Scriptures.

In the tradition of Martin Luther’s 95 theses, Camp sent out his own 107 theses on Reformation Day (October 31), 1998, calling for a reformation in contemporary Christian music.
