About the Artists

Steve Wallace

After attending graduate school, Steve established
a spiritual retreat center at the edge of Glacier National Park in Montana. For many years he traveled the world conducting his “Revival Seminars”, a series of over 40 presentations on character building and the importance of reflecting the glory of God in our lives. Steve recently relocated to Eastern Europe, where he is on a pilgrimage of spiritual growth and renewal.

Lauren Smith

Lauren founded Lauren Smith Communications Design, a graphic design and branding consultant firm, in 1981. Since then, his firm has won over 200 awards for creative excellence from the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the American Center for Design, the American Advertising Federation, and numerous others. Lauren lives in the Bay Area of California and, while he no longer performs, he is still an active songwriter.

Bonnie Casey

Bonnie is a medical/scientific editor at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland. Since moving to the East Coast in 1981, her creative focus has shifted to writing. She published a spiritual memoir in 2009 (BonnieLCasey.com) and writes a monthly essay on living mindfully and aging wisely. Her blog post for May 2012 is an intimate reflection on her life in music, and offers a very personal history of Take Three and Daystar.

Spectrum Magazine recently published an on-line interview with Bonnie. It can be found at the following link:

Ed Wright

Ed spent 32 years in pastoral ministry for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 20 of them at the campus church of Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee. Since 2005 he has been president of the Georgia-Cumberland Conference of SDA. He lives in Ooltewah, Tennessee, where he and his wife preside over a family of four children and five grandchildren.

Roger Stebner

In the 1980s, Roger was a member and manager of the country swing band Asleep at the Wheel. He has seen much of the world, but feels happiest and most grounded with his old Martin D28 in his hands. He lives in Southern California where he works as a certified surgical technologist and still does some songwriting. He will soon be both a licensed marriage and family therapist and a first-time grandparent.

Ron Evans

Ron has been an ophthalmologist in a small town in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California for 26 years. He frequently volunteers with Canvasback Missions, providing eye care to those in need in the equatorial Pacific Islands. In his local church, Ron serves as a leader for worship music. No longer a solo performer, he still finds joy in collaborating with other talented musicians to create and arrange music.

Greg Evans

Greg lives in Southern California and has appeared on “My Story, My Song,” a weekly TV program on Hope Channel that highlights emerging Christian musicians. His song “A Hill Far Away” debuted on the Voice of Prophecy’s 2009 Easter Sunday radio broadcast. Greg’s music reflects both the darkness of addiction and the blessing of more than 25 years of sobriety. A recent interview with Greg is available at http://www.visitinspire.org/article/63/music/singing-his-songs.
