In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I take a bit of a departure from my normal regimen of interviewing Christian authors. This is an interview I recorded with Petra lead vocalist John Schlitt earlier this summer at the International Christian Retail Show in St. Louis. During the interview we discuss John’s album The Greater Cause, his two successful Kickstarter campaigns, and his soon to be released Christmas album.
About the Album:
Classic rock, album-oriented rock, back to the roots rock – whatever name it goes by, legendary vocalist John Schlitt was performing his music to record-breaking crowds in arenas and stadiums when “classic” was current. Today he’s carrying his past into the future with The Greater Cause.
John’s fourth solo release, The Greater Cause, combines elements of classic rock infiltrated with blues rock, rock anthems and heavy rock ballads overlaid with John’s signature vocal style, resulting in a sonic explosion packed with intensity and drive. In other words, there is no doubt that The Greater Cause is a genuine rock album.
About John Schlitt:
John Schlitt is known for his career as the lead singer of Christian rock band Petra from 1986 until the band’s retirement in late 2005. Prior to joining Petra in 1986, Schlitt was the vocalist for Head East.
