He graduated from Leigh High School in San Jose, Calif., then moved to Los Angeles where he stayed with pioneer Christian rock singer Larry Norman.

Stonehill's first album, "Born Twice," was released in 1971. A year later, he made his film-acting debut in The Blob sequel, "Beware! The Blob." He also made a cameo appearance in the 1973 Billy Graham film "Time to Run," performing his song "I Love You."

In 1976, Stonehill released the "Welcome to Paradise" album that became a landmark album for the songwriter and was voted "3rd Most Important Contemporary Christian Album" in a mid-1980s poll of Christian music critics.

In 1984, the album project "Celebrate This Heartbeat," Stonehill joined forces with longtime friend Phil Keaggy for the song "Who Will Save The Children?" The two later formed The Keaggy/Stonehill Band in 1989.
