Stanton grew up in Chapel Hill, N.C., where he began studying the piano at age 6. Basketball and baseball tempted him to quit in middle school, but his parents would not permit that. He went on to write his first song at 14 and continued writing while studying chemistry at Georgia Tech. He then went on to earn an MBA from the University of Georgia.
A growing longing to hear the voice of God, however, eventually, caused Stanton’s career change. Most of his music is based on artistic interpretations of ancient Scriptures.
In 2004, Stanton, who still lives in Georgia, started the non-profit Music to Light the World. The organization’s purpose is “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.”
