Sometimes, the decision to stop…starts everything.
It’s exactly the situation Chris Cleveland found himself in when the previous iteration of his band Stars Go Dim came to a close. What started out as a simple side project, became a successful recording and touring entity, all while Cleveland maintained his “day job” working as a worship leader at a church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As the original SGD began to fade, everyday life became more and more integrated into Cleveland’s reality and norm – marriage, two kids, a steady job – a sense of newness and contentment. While Chris knew that music would always be a part of his life, in the stillness of the moment, when touring was no longer his career, he was more able to get focused on the role music would and should have in his life moving forward.
And that’s when everything started.
