Light For The Lost Boy emerged, on the one hand, as a chronicle of what was lost at the fall of man, but it is a chronicle made personal, as seen through the eyes of one man now watching his own children begin to cross that threshold from innocence to heartbreak. The lyrical, haunting tones of the project provide an ideal complement for the honest depths of the subject matter.
Light For The Lost Boy pulses with the hurt of the human condition, it's a grief permeated with light and hope and beauty and love. Andrew, perhaps better than any other songwriter today, recognizes the echoes of Eden and eternity that fill our daily lives for what they are. His journey as an artist, author and disciple is one that he's long attempted to make openly and in community, using his songs and stories as an invitation to others walking the same road. Light For The Lost Boy artfully and stirringly documents the last couple years of that journey, and in so doing, is likely to give thousands of new listeners a point of connection with his music.
Peterson is coming off his best selling project since his debut project. "Dancing In The Minefields" was a Top 15 Christian AC hit, the video has over a million views.
Peterson recently completed the 50 date Songs & Stories tour with Steven Curtis Chapman.
