My start in gospel music came in the way of sadness- my Father, Pastor David Cairns was called Home in March 2004 and out of this was formed a quartet where I sang tenor for nine years. I had the opportunity to sing in venues such as the SSE Arena and Ravenhill Rugby Ground- home of Ulster Rugby. We also sang in Ireland, England, Scotland, Norway and twice in America where we recorded two albums and toured twice.
Then in February of 2013, God was calling me on a new adventure. In 2013 I met the love of my life, Tanita and we were married one year later in May 2014.
God has blessed us with 3 beautiful children- Portia, Abigail, and Arianna.
In 2015 I felt the call to go out on my own as a solo artist and recorded my first album with Woodlands studios called- Great Are You Lord. In 2018 I signed my first record deal with Peace Records from the USA and recorded my first album in 2019 called "The Assent"
Just over a year ago we experienced deep heartache when we lost our son Samuel. On the day before we buried him, God gave us a verse of scripture:
Genesis 25:24- And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
On 1st April this promise was fulfilled and our precious twins Abigail & Arianna were born.
It is a wonderful privilige to serve God in full time ministry bringing the Gospel in word, testimony, and song through Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, USA, Canada and as far as the Philippines. I am delighted to travel along with my family by my side and our vision is to do what Mark 16v15 says- Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
