What Others Are Saying:
“Stan Sheridan is a rare find today…passion for Jesus and people! He is not just an annointed worship leader and songwriter, but he also TEACHES as he worships — teaches the congregation to go deeper, teaches the band to trust and flow musically, and teaches the co-worship leaders by example. He breathes into dreams. You can’t help but be encouraged when you have just 2 minutes with this guy!”

“Stan Sheridan is one of the most talented musicians that I have ever met. His stage presence and keyboard ability along with his great singing voice make him one of the best in the business. He makes a spiritual song come alive!”
Dr. Stan Toler, Best-selling Author & Speaker
“I met Stan Sheridan several years ago when he was traveling with a nationally known ministry. His talent, both vocally and at the keyboard, was immediately evident as well as his ability to communicate and connect with the audience. He was a crowd pleaser while still being able to portray the sincerity for ministry that was in his heart. Stan is a true professional and able to bring out the best in those he works with.”
