Fire and Ice (1984)

Updated: Jun 22

Fire and Ice is the fourth studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Steve Camp. It is his first album on Sparrow Records released in the spring of 1984 and his first album in nearly three years since Camp left Word Records.

Fire and Ice would solidify Camp as one of the most popular artists in Christian music in the mid 1980s. Mixing some soft rock songs, like the duet "Love's Not a Feeling" featuring Sparrow label mate Michele Pillar, which became a Christian radio hit, with rock songs like the title song and "Squeeze." "Living in Laodicea" became a radio and fan favorite. The album was ranked at number 96 from CCM Magazine in their 2001 book The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music. Camp co-wrote seven songs with fellow CCM singer - songwriter and friend Rob Frazier.

Camp makes his first chart appearance on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart as Fire and Ice peaked at number 14. The track "Light Your Candle" was originally recorded for his final Myrrh Records album It's a Dying World, which was released later in 1984. For this album, Camp added the line "Let it burn bright in the face of the devil" in the chorus. Fire and Ice is produced by Camp and John Rosasco. Camp earned his first, and only, Grammy Award nomination for Best Gospel Performance by a Duo or Group for "Love's Not a Feeling" with Pillar (also her first Grammy nomination).
