Steve Bell and Fresh I.E.

“Roots-Rap”

In this unique version of Everything We Need (originally recorded for Steve Bell’s 2008 release Devotion), Steve teams up with Christian hip-hop artist Fresh I.E. to put a new sound to this powerful song written by Gord Johnson.
Fresh I.E. (Robert Wilson) is a Canadian multi-grammy nominated recording artist living in Winnipeg, traveling and ministering to at-risk urban and rural youth. This video depicts the simple beauty of God amongst people living in an urban landscape as well as the tension between faithful hope for a better world and the reality of urban poverty.

“When I heard the rap Fresh brought into the studio, I knew this was going to work. His voice added strength and experience to my vision for the video and sparked the passion lying in Steve’s unwrinkled vocals.” Jeff Lukin/ video director

REVIEW: Local Juno-award winner Steve Bell teamed up recently with Fresh IE to bring you a new mish-mash rendition of Everything We Need. I love it when artists embrace each other’s talents from across genres. This culmination of creativity is what I think art is all about. By the way, isn’t the video done incredibly well. Exactly what I would have pictured. Hats off to everyone involved. – Kyle Rudge, Ignite 107 Radio Winnipeg
