Vineyard Music is a label that releases a cd about every 4 months. Vineyard is actually a church denomination, and they have come up with their own music as well, and the Vineyard leaders continue to influence the world with songs like "Light the Fire Again", "Hungry", "Surrender", and the new song/cd "Holy"
Vineyard has many worship leaders, and I won't attempt to name all of them, but some of the well-known names are David Ruis, Brian Doerkson, Dan Wilt, Jesse Lane, Andy Park, Brenton Brown, and Ryan Delmore.
If you had to pick there most popular album it would probably be "Hungry" even though others would disagree with that choice. My personal favorite is "Holy"
Matt Redman, who is part of a ministry called Soul Survivor, is a very influential worship leader; I'm sure you have heard of his song "The Heart of Worship" or "Let Everything that has Breath". He writes a lot of fairly simple songs, with very intimate lyrics. Matt has released a couple of his own albums under the Soul Survivor/Worship Together labels. His most recent is The Father's Song. Matt has also been featured on many other albums including the live Soul Survivor cds recorded in the UK, and also a Worship Together album that was recorded in California, just to name a few. Redman also has written a book called The Unquenchable Worshipper; it's a must read. If you aren't too familiar with Matt Redman, you heard it from me-check some of his music out-I'm sure you will like some of it!
You can hardly be a Christian these days and not have been influenced in some way by Delirious. The band started out known as the Cutting Edge(their first album) Band but they later changed their name to the present Delirious. The band started out writing some songs but then decided to put them on a cd to share their God-given talents with the world. And share with the world is exactly what they did; Delirious has many times been said to be the catalyst in the modern worship music movement, and most people can agree with that when you see how many of their songs are sung in churches every Sunday. But D? isn't a "church" only band, they have singles played on mainstream radio in the UK, 7 of their singles have been in the top 40. Delirious seems to be writing their songs recently for the mainstream market and not the worship scene, but with the D? boys you never know what their future holds. They changed the way I listen to music, and if you haven't gave them a listen yet, make sure you do!
When some of your biggest fans are Deliriou5 and Newsboys, you know youve made it! Martin, John and Darryl reign from Durban, South Africa and have toured with the likes of Sonicflood and Rebecca St. James. After touring extensively in the U.K. and Africa, Inpop Records signed them after hearing a demo. With their self-entitiled debut U.S. album, they won a Dove Award for Best Rock Album of The Year. Tree63 has performed in tiny towns to huge Aquire The Fires all over the U.S. They will take a short break home during the month of July and come back to the U.S. for a Youth Evangelism Conference in San Antonio, TX and a few more dates in California. With Johns wife heading the booth at most of the tour venues you can tell the love John has for his wife. Darryl is drummer and is one awesome guy! Martin is bass guitar and John is on main vocals and guitar.
