Backstory:  John was deep in the middle of his throat cancer treatment during Spring 2019 and as one can imagine, he was not in a good place as it was very hard for him physically, emotionally and mentally facing his future as an entertainer. Fast forward to 2020 and the world was deep into Covid-19, and as a touring artist, he was dealing with the issues of tour dates canceling and the unknown future; as much of the world as we know it was shut down. John found himself looking for ways to keep productive and he was ready to dive into recording a new project. The single, “Find My Joy,” was written in September 2020 by Steve Dorff and Jack Cassidy. Jump ahead to January 2021, Steve Dorff played the song to John and his wife, Robin, while meeting to discuss Steve arranging the songs for John’s new project. John immediately knew he wanted to record this song for his new faith-based album. It was shortly thereafter, they discussed Steve producing the whole project. Hailing from New York City, Steve had not grown up listening to the traditional (Christian) versions of some of these songs and had not even heard a few of them before, but was drawn to the beautiful melodies, which allowed for him to bring a unique sound to the production of these standards. Creative elements were added by Steve to the production, including the performance of “Something Bigger Than Me” which includes a 60-piece Utah Symphony Orchestra arranged by Larry Herbstritt, piano by in-demand concert and studio musician Gordon Mote and conducted by Steve Dorff. The end result is this music project is incredible! 

“I really loved the idea of putting my own musical spin on some of these incredible pieces of Musical art,” added Steve Dorff. “John was so very collaborative in letting me be inventive in my approach to the overall sound and Production of the project.”.

Recording of the new project took place at Dorffmeister StudioSound Stage and Masterfonics and was engineered by Craig White, with assistance from David Bates and Joel McKenney. Studio musicians included keyboards by Jimmy Nichols, guitars by B. James Lowry and Justin Ostrander and background vocals by Tania HancheroffKim KeyesJoe ChemayRobert Bailey and Gene Miller with programming and additional keyboards by Steve Dorff. Caelan Berry played drums on “Live Like You” and “How Great Thou Art.”
