The best introduction to Stanton Lanier is to first listen to his music before you listen to his story. Stanton’s stated mission, to offer “peace and rest in a hurried world,” is accomplished through storytelling, but not in words. His stories are told through instrumental melodies on the piano, transporting a global listening audience to that unique interior place that brings peace to each person’s life and circumstances. Many of his live performances are coupled with exquisite pictures of nature that create a powerful sensory experience.
Music to Light the World is the non-profit organization Stanton founded in 2004 with a vision to offer “peace to the soul” through scripture inspired piano. This organization brings peace, hope and healing to many who need it most through donating CDs and performances to groups such as cancer patients, families who have lost children to cancer, hospitals and inner city ministries. Get Music, Give Hope is an initiative where, for every album purchased, Music to Light the World donates one album to a cancer center or hospital. Music to Light the World is gaining strength and support from prominent philanthropists in Atlanta and beyond who are equally dedicated to touching lives with a message of hope.
The song “Peace” on his award winning CD “December Peace” was written by Stanton because of his friendship with CURE board member Alan Thomson on the night Hayley Thomson earned her angel wings. Stanton Lanier has generously donated a CD for each mom attending “A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes” this year.
