This past September Schultz released his new album, All Things Possible, which boasts new stories as the multi-award winning artist celebrates becoming a father, making new friends during his year-long stay in Italy with his wife Kate and kicking-off his “Remember Me” project to support orphans. He has landed the top spot on Billboard magazine’s Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriter list and has been featured on “48 Hours” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” In 2011, Schultz released his first instrumental album, Renaissance and his first novella, titled “Letters From War,” based on the his hit song. His 2005 release, Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs, was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. and earned Schultz his first GMA Dove Award.
He has been nominated for numerous Dove Awards, winning his first at the 2006 Dove Awards when the CD/DVD Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs was named Long Form Music Video of the Year. He now resides in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
