Today, West debuts three episodes available now with a new episode releasing weekly. Click here to listen to the trio of episodes that feature Casting Crowns’ frontman Mark Hall, mother and daughter Korie Robertson and Sadie Robertson Huff, and a special Q&A episode with West that will be a monthly feature.
“After working behind the scenes for several months, I’m excited to finally release my very own podcast,” shares Matthew West. “My whole music career has revolved around the power of story. I’ve always been passionate about telling the stories of peoples’ lives through my music because I’ve seen the impact it can make. Now, I’m carrying that same passion for stories to the podcast format. Each interview will feature a unique conversation with some of my favorite artists, athletes, authors, and influencers whose stories have impacted my life. People are going to be inspired and challenged by the stories of folks like Sadie and Korie Robertson, Mark Hall from Casting Crowns, and many more. I can’t wait for the world to hear these stories!”
Each week, West will welcome artists, authors, professional athletes, and more to get to the heart of their stories as well as share the stories from those that have inspired his heartfelt music and conclude with some encouraging words from his dad, Pastor Joe West.
“Every episode will also have a musical component called ‘Songs From The Story House’ where I get to share the stories of people’s lives who have inspired the songs,” continues West. “From the inspiring story of a fourteen-year-old walking miracle named William, to the incredible story of Renee, who lost her daughter in a drunk driving accident but discovered the life-changing gift of forgiveness, I believe these stories are going to challenge listeners to see the power in their own stories. So here we go! This is gonna be fun.”
