Big news from the Michael Sweet online store: For a limited time, all orders of “One Sided War” merch come with a FREE autographed CD of previously unreleased demos!
A note from Michael: “This is the first music and demo that I recorded after I left Stryper in 1992. I thought these were all gone until I stumbled upon a box in storage. They are extremely rare and I’m offering them to you as a gift for purchasing any new Michael Sweet merchandise. Once they are gone they’re gone!”

Sweet is best known as the singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer for legendary hardrock pioneers Stryper, who have sold over ten million albums worldwide. In addition to Stryper, Sweet has had a successful solo career, and he served as the guitarist and co-vocalist for the legendary classic rock band Boston from 2007 to 2011. The future remains bright for a man who has endured heartbreaking tribulations throughout his life and career, including the 2009 passing of his wife of more than 22 years, Kyle. In 2010, Sweet remarried to Lisa Champagne-Sweet, a woman he describes as “a Godsend and the one who fits perfectly by my side.” Sweet continues to record and tour with Stryper, as well as touring and recording as a solo artist.
