To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to recommend to you Mark Steven, as a Christian Musician and Lyricist.
I have worked with Mark as part of our worship team, and have heard him perform at a number of other venues. I have met and prayed with Mark and the other band members as a Pastoral mentor.

Mark’s strength is found in the “soul” of his music! Whether he is performing songs that others have written or drawing from his repertoire of original music, his passion comes through. After hearing Mark’s testimony and listening to his songs you begin to understand the depth of his faith, forged in the crucible of difficult experiences. His songs and testimony give an impassioned plea to “Trust Christ Jesus” and live in HIS life.

It is without reservation, and with a good deal of enthusiasm that I recommend his band Mark Steven to you. If I can answer any questions, or provide further reference, please contact me at the address or number above.

In His Service,

Stuart E. Rowan


Reviewer: M. Redhead. Lime Lite Records I don't listen to rock music, but I know when something sounds good. I like a good song with meaning, and I'm feeling Marks work. I like Rock the Silence.

Wake em Mark!!

Mark, Thanks for bearing a message about Jesus to others and sharing Him through this album. Thank you for the creation of such thought provoking songs about His love. I hope many others will come to know Christ through this album and follow Him. Professionalism in the production of this album makes it interesting.

Make no mistake about it, guitarist/singer/songwriter Mark Steven is a Christian Rock artist. For that I say, “Right on brother”. As a Christian myself, I found it refreshing to hear some music that’s more inspirational than the typical secular junk that gets fed to us via radio and television on a daily basis. The 11 tracks are basically upbeat, guitar driven rockers which were all written by Steven. Not even Helen Keller could miss the obvious spiritual message of songs like “Go Jesus Go”, “Coming Through the Clouds” and “Walk into the Church”. At its best this record delivers great chucks of inspirational rock  (“Rock the Silence” and “Book of Life”).
