“Once you’ve tasted a little bit of pioneering, you never want to settle.” – Stu G
It’s refreshing to talk with someone who has had decades of experience doing the same thing without a jaded heart. That’s why I love Stu G. Stu is one of the founding members of the band Delirious, an incredible guitarist, and one who has had a massive influence upon modern worship in so many ways.
In this chat we dive into some of Stu’s Delirious memories, his transition from the band to what he’s doing now, as well as his new project “Have You Heard” – music which predates Delirious. And for you guitar players out there, we geek out for a bit about Stu’s live setup and signal chain.
