With my daughter London, I can see the impact I’m having on her—and she’s having an impact on me—and how special all of that is. I can’t even imagine ever leaving her or anything like that. The full recipe wasn’t there for me, but that doesn’t mean God can’t be the Father to the fatherless, and I know He was for me.
CCM: Anything specifically about Stones that you want people to know?
Manafest: Well, it is out. People can get it with free shipping worldwide, which is pretty awesome, if you go to Manafest.com/Stones. That’s something really special we’ve been able to do without the label so that we can just get the music out to as many people. It’s just $10 bucks, free shipping worldwide, man.
CCM: Free shipping worldwide, are you serious?
Manafest: Yeah, yeah! It’s crazy. It actually makes sense.
CCM: With the new release now under your belt, what does this current and into the next season look like for you?
Manafest: Raising a daughter and being with my family. I’m trying to hit the next level of my music career and kind-of cross over to more mainstream stuff and to go on bigger tours and continue to grow. As I’m growing my family, I want to grow my music career—trying to jump to the next cliff. I feel like I’m still on the climb, whether I fall or not, I’m always going to be growing.
