About

about
Caspar McCloud is a virtuoso guitarist, singer, and songwriter, an acclaimed portrait artist, as well as an equestrian, ordained minister, and bestselling author of five books. Caspar had the honour, privilege, and distinction of being the only Christian act on the bill with numerous legendary artists at what was the 50-anniversary celebration of Woodstock, renamed the We Festival in 2019, and relocated to North Carolina. Kenn Moutenot of the We Festival 2019 added, "Great performance Caspar. You are the only artist to perform twice. Thoughts & prayers."

Juma Sultan, who played in Jimi Hendrix's band at Woodstock in 1969, played with Caspar and his band Sunday morning at this historic event. Pastor Caspar shared a message of Christ's mercy, grace, and love with everyone there. Caspar and his band have already been booked for the Vision Festival in May 2020.

A modern-day Renaissance man, Caspar McCloud has wowed fans and fellow guitarists with his lightning-fast technique, his use of effects, a la his friend and mentor Phil Keaggy, as well as his gentle, serene, Celtic classical acoustic playing.

Caspar signed to Atlantic Records after leaving his home in England for New York City and was touted as the "next Jimi Hendrix" by the legendary Ahmet Ertegun, CEO, and Founder of Atlantic Records. Befriended by Phil Keaggy, seven years of patient witnessing culminated in Caspar giving his heart to Christ on an airplane in the midst of a personal crisis. Caspar yielded his heart to Christ and his considerable talents as well. He has since recorded over ten projects since his first now rare UK release “Messin’ Round," which is an in-demand collector’s item.

Caspar’s early recordings “Upon This Rock” gained him national acclaim with his single I Need The Lord. Caspar and his band, “The Ministry of Three” have recorded, In Adoration, The Living Word, Soul Saved, In Our Lifetime, World Without Borders, and his solo recording Dead Men Like Me Are Just Happy to Be Alive, released in 2014. A remake of the album and song In Adoration released in 2015 and Faithfulness the Anthology, Communion in 2016. 2017 saw the release of the all-acoustic “Pictures of Jesus” followed by “Revelation Rocker” in 2018.

Caspar’s newest album, “Game Changers” has a release date of January 2020. Glenn Taylor, who co-produces and engineers for Caspar's friends Tommy James and the Shondells also engineered and co-produced “Game Changers.” Tommy James has introduced the Reverend Pastor Caspar to his audiences in concerts proclaiming that he considers Caspar one of the best guitarists he has ever known.

Solo projects like Healing Music and Mercy, Grace, and Love feature more of Caspar’s classical Celtic worship acoustic style. He has played and recorded with many celebrities and friends over the years including from the secular music field: Tommy James and the Shondells, Rick Derringer, Michael Shrieve, and Michael Carabella of Santana, Matt Bassionett, of Joe Satriani band, G3 and Ringo Starr band, the late Eddie Zynn of FogHat, and Hall and Oates.

Caspar has performed and recorded with his friend and mentor Phil Keaggy, Peter Furler, and Jody Davis, the Newsboys, John Waller, The Smalltown Poets, Disciple, Susan Ashton, and David Teems from the Christian music industry. His newest release August 2020 is Like A Thief In The Night and takes on the issues of the world in the pandemic crisis, produced by Glenn Taylor. Be watching for a new album release called Black Swan. Nashville violinist Renae Truex has joined his band with veteran drummer Carlos Merced and Donovan Lipham on keyboards.

Caspar is also a world-class portrait artist with a Pre-Raphaelite approach, specializing in Equestrian subject matter. Some of his work is included in the personal collections of the British Royal Family.

Caspar’s first book was his inspiring autobiography entitled, Nothing is Impossible, which includes his testimony of turning from the glittery, rock star world to wholeheartedly following Christ as a result of his long term friendship with Phil Keaggy. The book also shares the dramatic story of his medically-verified healing of an incurable heart condition.

His second book, What Was I Thinking published by Destiny Image, deals with the spiritual roots of disease and the science of epigenetics, which is the science of how thought affects physiology, as seen through the lens of the Holy Bible. Exposing the Spirit of Self Pity, continues that theme, focusing on the deleterious effects of self-pity. The Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself with British co-author Simon Brown reached the #1 spot on Amazon. Caspar’s most recent books are Spiritual Encounter With the Shroud: Caspar McCloud Interviews with L.A. Marzulli, and Unmasking the Future - A Guide to End-Time Prophecies and Today's Headlines. Caspar's song America was featured in the popular Trey Smith film the "Trump Prophecys," with well over 5 million views.

Caspar’s amazing testimony was filmed and aired as a feature entitled “A Night of Miracles” on TBN. He has also appeared on such major TV shows as CBN’s “The 700 Club,” Skywatch TV, WATC’s “Atlanta Live” “Friends and Neighbors,” and Dove Broadscasting’s “Niteline.” Caspar also hosts a weekly internet radio show, “Spiritual Encounters,” featuring such guests as L. A. Marzulli, Gary Stearman, Daniel Kolenda, and others. Caspar is a frequent guest speaker at Bible Prophecy conferences with some of the most erudite, cutting edge researchers and best-selling authors and speakers of our day, including, Carl Gallups, Rabbi Zev Porat, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, Derek, and Sharon Gilbert, Dr. Tom Horn, Paul McGuire, Dr. Michael Lake, and others. He is currently working on music projects with Rock Legends, Tommy James and the Shondells, and Rick Derringer's Band.
