By the age of 10 years, Stanphill had already become a fluent musician, having learned to play the piano, organ, ukulele, and accordion. At 17 years, he was composing and performing his own music for church services, revival campaigns, and prayer meetings.
As a singer evangelist, Stanphill traveled the United States and Canada extensively and around the world to forty countries over his career to preach and perform his music. Many famous secular singers performed his works, which were received with great acclaim and are still popular. Entertainers such as Elvis Presley (Mansion Over the Hilltop) and Johnny Cash (Suppertime) are among those who have performed Stanphill's works. "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow", "I Walk with His Hand in Mine", and "We'll Talk It Over" are a few of his titles that are familiar and still performed today
