Competition Winner Announced

Posted by

Hi folks! Thanks to everyone who has been following my music project. Today, I’m happy to unveil the title for the album, the finished album artwork, and the winner of the T.E.N. Project competition.

There were some fantastic entries to the competition. If you aren’t aware, I invited listeners to submit possible titles for the album, with the only restriction being that the initials T.E.N. would need to be included in their suggestions.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Theology Expressed Novelly
The Tune Equivalent of Nachos
The End is Nigh
Tuned to the Eternal Nature
Theorising Ethereal Notions
Truths Echoing Naturally
Tenderly Entering Nirvana

All cracking suggestions! But I had to settle on a winner. I wanted to choose something impactful, punchy, and memorable, and although I would say all of the above suggestions meet those criteria, I finally settled on a title that I like because it’s versatile (i.e. it can mean different things to different people), and is also intriguing and will hopefully make people want to listen to the songs.

And the winner is…


Congratulations to Lisa Stride-Purves who suggested the title. Lisa is a Christian and the idea behind the suggestion was the urgency of the gospel message. I also feel it has meaning for the album itself, in other words, if you like my music then tell everyone about it now! And as indicated above it could have multiple other meanings, depending on the person reading it.

Lisa’s prize is a free copy of the album and signed copies of both my books. They’ll be in the post shortly after the release date, Lisa!

Artwork for the Album

Thank you to everyone who left a comment on this post in which I asked for feedback about my album artwork ideas. The feedback was pretty much unanimous, and I agreed with virtually everything that was said. It wasn’t very difficult, then, to decide which design to go for.

So here it is, the finished album artwork!


The release date for the album is 10th September 2018Β (tell everyone now!) and if you’re subscribed to this blog you can expect to receive an email from me on releaseΒ day with details of how you can listen to and/or purchase a copy if you’d like to.

I’m excited to be making these songs available soon, and thank you once again for following me on this musical journey which has been a lot of fun!

Blessings and have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. This is exciting – and the album title is great. You are so unique, certainly there’ll be no other album like yours! Looking forward to it Steven! πŸ’ΏπŸ˜Š
