“We are honored to represent Stu G’s songs and creativity in this new season,” said Craig Dunnagan, Integrity’s Vice President of Music Publishing and Ministry Alliances. “There is no way to sufficiently describe the influence Stu’s songs, musicianship and ministry have had on the formation of what we now refer to as ‘Modern Worship.’ He continues to inspire others and create amazing songs through his collaborative efforts with many great artists and songwriters across our industry.”
A gifted songwriter, guitarist, producer and performer, Stu G is currently on tour with Michael W.

As a young musician and worship leader, Stu played in his own bands and for trailblazing artists like Noel Richards and Kevin Prosch before meeting Martin Smith. Together, Stu and Martin began talking about a new sound of worship for a new crowd of people, a sound that would become Delirious?. The seventeen years that followed the birth of the band not only defined the lives of the musicians involved but left deep imprints on what people now understand as church music.
Now based with his family in Nashville, Tennessee, Stu sees his relationship with Integrity as the next chapter in a winding road.
