Stan Whitmire Bio
Dove Award-winning pianist, Stan Whitmire, has a list of accomplishments, both diverse and impressive. He brings to each performance a rich musical heritage spanning several generations and covering a variety of musical styles. For the past 32 years, Stan has been an integral part of the music ministry of one of the nation's leading churches, Mount Paran Church of God in Atlanta.
Some of his musical credits include serving for five years as keyboardist for the Grammy Award-nominated and Dove Award winning vocal group, The Nelons, traveling with them throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
In addition to playing for The Nelons, Stan has worked with award-winning pianist, Dino Kartsonakis, on his Christmas Pianorama production and occasional other showcases, and has also accompanied such artists as Charles Billingsley, Dana Blackwood, The Booth Brothers, Andy Chrisman (4-HIM), The Collingsworth Family, Geron and Becky Davis, Michael English, Larry Ford, The Gaither Vocal Band, Alicia Williamson Garcia, Greater Vision, Mark Harris (4-HIM), Amy Lambert, LordSong, Mark Lowry, The Martins, Babbie Mason, Jerome Olds, Paul Overstreet, George Beverly Shea, Sisters, Mike Speck, and John Starnes.
A featured soloist and accompanist on many of the Bill and Gloria Gaither Homecoming video projects, Stan often works with the Gaithers both in the studio and on occasional concert dates.
In 1997 he began working for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as an accompanist and vocalist, ministering at various national crusades and conferences.
Stan is also a part of many In Touch Ministries (Dr. Charles Stanley) events, playing for rallies and conferences across the country, and cruises to Alaska, Greece and the Caribbean.
Since the fall of 2003, he has had way too much fun being a part of Mark Lowry’s solo-concert dates and video shoots.
Many artists with technical training play mechanically, and many with feeling are limited technically—not Stan, who accomplishes both, accurately covering the entire keyboard, yet still playing with deep emotion.
His passionate presentation of varied stylings will lift your spirits and nourish your soul.
