Read the full article of Fazakerley's latest write up in the news!
If, over the summer, you happen to be looking for garage sales in Spokane Valley, don't be surprised if you see a huge blue monkey at the corner of 16th Avenue and Adams Road. He's hard to miss as he dances around and waves a sign urging you to follow the arrows and "support a local musician." The guy in the monkey suit is Steven Fazakerley, a singer, songwriter and guitarist who's raising $10,000 to cut a five-track CD, which, upon completion, will be sent out to record labels.

Fazakerley, 25, grew up in Plummer, Idaho. His first dream was to be a hockey player, but call it fate, destiny or a calling, he was presented with a refurbished guitar and he began plucking away, teaching himself chords and writing songs until his visions of an ice rink turned into that of a stage where the audience cheers not for a flying puck but a message rooted in a love for Jesus Christ.

"That's why I'm an artist. This is my platform to make him famous," he said. "Until my voice gives out, I will remain an artist devoted to my lord and savior, Jesus. I love to play and write music, but for me it would be so empty and boring without my God as the inspiration."

Fazakerley started a band called I.G.I.T. (In God I Trust) in high school and, after graduation, the group hit the road for a 30-show tour. Upon their return, band members went their separate ways. Fazakerley remained committed to making music with a purpose. As summed up in his biography on indieheaven.com, he "launched into a nine-month arts pastor internship program that ignited a fire for local church ministry and writing worship music that helped the church be more mindful of upcoming generations." He started another band and began leading others as a musician and a youth pastor.

Currently, in an office at ONE*, a church in Spokane Valley, he serves as a creative arts director while he works on his future as a solo artist. Working with producers in Seattle and Los Angeles and studio musicians, he is shooting for a fall release of his CD funded by donations, garage sales and gigs.

As he plays his guitar and belts out a song, his passion and talent fills the room; he is a rock star or, at least, well on his way to becoming one. His desire is simply to use music to impact a generation for Christ, solo but never alone.

In his song "God Dream," he relays to others where he finds his courage "So I'll dare to dream higher than before, as I walk by your side through that door."

Wearing a monkey suit or strumming a guitar, he hopes to point the way.
