Kutless received support from home as guest speaker, Ryan Dobson, invited his parents to attend the show. James Dobson and his wife Shirley saw their son perform at one of Kutless tour dates hitting Orange County as part of the Festival Con Dios Tour this fall.
“Ryan Dobson bunked on the Kutless bus for the Festival Con Dios Tour,” says Darren Tyler of Platform Artist Management. “Ryan and the band became friends in a hurry. It was clear from the start that Kutless and Ryan Dobson have the same goals— to partner with youth leaders to help change the lives of their kids. It’s clear that Kutless’ powerful stage presence and Ryans’ passionate message are a great match. That combo is something we want to continue.”
The couple was very pleased with their son and the band to see how the kids were taking their talents to share the gospel to the packed crowds. Ryan Dobson now has a taste for appearing with Kutless and has agreed to participate on the upcoming X2004: Kutless Presents the Sea of Faces Tour this coming Spring.
Ryan commented, “The Kutless guys are awesome to be out there with -- they are funny and a whole lot of fun to be around, but more importantly I see how much that God has anointed them and given them favor to take the platform that they are taking with the modern day culture!”
Kutless plans a February 24th release of Sea of Faces, the band’s next album.
