Profile Randall Evan “Randy” Stonehill  is an American singer-songwriter from Stockton, California, best known as one of the pioneers of contemporary Christian music. His music is primarily folk rock in the style of James Taylor, but he has assayed other styles, with various albums focused on new wave, pop rock, roots rock, and children’s music. His live concerts, more so than most of his albums, have a strong comedic element in the manic vein of Robin Williams. Equator is an album by Randy Stonehill, released in 1983, on Myrrh Records. All Songs Written By Randy Stonehill, except “Light Of The World” By Randy Stonehill And Wayne Berry And “Hide Them In Your Love” By Randy Stonehill And Gary Morris and produced by Terry Scott Taylor.

 “Equator” is another great record by Randy Stonehill, featuring the aforementioned qualities, it showcases Stonehill’s maturity as a writer in songs that explore maturity (“Turning Thirty”) and troubled friendships (“Even the Best of Friends”), as well as divine love and evangelism (“Light of the World,” “Hide Them In Your Love,” and “China.”) There are the usual comic tunes on serious subjects (“American Fast Food,” “Big Ideas,” and “Cosmetic Fixations”), of course, and even an Afro-gospel chant (“Shut De Do”). I would not recommend trying to pick or choose just buy the whole album or else you’ll miss out on some great music.
