Citizens/Integrity Music album “The Joy Of Being” on WorshipTeam

Citizens has released “The Joy Of Being” through Integrity Music and the songs are now loaded into WorshipTeam.com “The Joy Of Being” is a recording of some great new songs.

Music is this experiential world that pulls at our emotions and sometimes says the very words we needed to hear without saying anything at all. The notes of a guitar, the melodic progression of a piano, the driving rhythms of drums, joining together in ways that captivate more than just the basic senses. Music digs deeper.

And even still, for all the ways we crave it’s power, can we become so obsessed with the feeling it brings us that we allow ourselves to be manipulated by it? For thousands and thousands of years people have been singing songs. Even before there were instruments to play, the sounds of gentle wind and violent thunder served as accompaniment and even inspiration for the lyric. Have we forgotten to dance the beautiful steps between our hearts and our minds, seeing them as one synchronized piece?

Even as the scales may weigh heavy to one side or the other of lyric or melody, we find ourselves at a point in history when all the decorations we’ve used to dress up the songs we sing in the church have been temporarily boxed up. Perhaps there’s never been a better time for honest introspection as we consider the songs that we sing in the church. Songs that teach us our theology. Build our faith. Rattle our defenses. Give breath to our emotions.

It’s just a voice and an instrument now in front of a shaky camera leading the people of God. This is the moment where we dig deeper then music can ever go. Where we take thoughtful inventory of the words moving from our lips to the ears of those listening. Where we find a middle that doesn’t diminish the importance of words and melody but strives to say what is true in the clearest and most wonderful way possible.

This record was first written as a call to ourselves to get back to middle ground, to a space that occupies more than just emotion or thought, but the soul; a call to be. To find contentment in the absence of production and the honesty of an unrefined voice lifted up in praise to our glorious God.

These songs are yours to use in whatever way you want. We have intentionally made these arrangements as basic as possible to leave room for your imagination. (That’s why ‘The Joy of Being’ was first recorded on iPhones!) If the aim of our worship is to bring God glory, why should there just be 3 or 4 styles and sounds that we use in the church globally to express our praise? There is a world of possibilities and a number of ways for us to articulate that through our own individual creativity.

Sing these songs in your life. Arrange the music in a way that best represents you and your people, and with time, we’ll share our own musical interpretations of these same songs! Let’s journey together in ‘The Joy of Being.’

“2020… A year we won’t quickly forget. In troubled times we start to realize that we need ongoing connection to the Living God more than ever before. MY HOPE HAS COME chronicles the worship journey of the Vineyard creative community through this challenging time.

On the first Friday of every month new music is released from within our global creative Vineyard Worship community. MY HOPE HAS COME is a compilation of our monthly singles from 2020 featuring both the STUDIO and LIVE versions. Featuring important new songs such as the vibrant, Latin gospel-flavored “Familia” and “God of Rest (Dios Del Descanso)”, both originally penned in both Spanish and English, to the prophetically-birthed “Sons And Daughters” born from one of our large group worship circles in Cannon Beach, OR back in 2019. Songs such as “Familia”, “The Hidden Place”, and “You Speak” are first fruits of the new partnership with the historic worship ministry Integrity Music. So much more to come here.

Finally, the hopeful title track “Cherry Blossoms”, a song SO relevant to the current cultural moment we find ourselves in. Featuring a live-in-studio video shot in late 2019, “Cherry Blossoms” is already finding a home in churches all over the world.

“In winter, I believe You. In springtime, I see You. It’s so good to be with You. My hope has come!”

“Cherry Blossoms” is perfect for any celebration but it carries extra weight as we move toward the Easter season in 2021.

Our singles also highlight the leading worship voices from around the Vineyard movement.

Thrive Worship/Integrity Music album “A Thousand More” on WorshipTeam

Thrive Worship has released “A Thousand More” through Integrity Music and all songs are now loaded into WorshipTeam.com “A Thousand More” is a recording of some great new songs.

“Every song on this album is telling a piece of a story from our church,” shares Corbin Phillips, one of the group’s founding leaders, along with Peter Burton and Charmaine Wells. “When you have a lot of people from different backgrounds, you get a lot of different influences in the music from Gospel to pop to congregational. It gives us a lot of space within the boundary lines to create outside of the typical church worship band.”

“We want to spread a message of hope,” Burton explains. “We want people to feel like they can come and be comfortable, no matter what state of life they’re in. Our hope is that these songs would be able to reach someone who’s really far from Christ or someone who’s been walking with Him for a long time.”

Along with their eight-campus weekly services, they also run the Thrive Worship School from their main location. Students from all over the world come to hone their talents and learn to lead in worship, with a goal to take them from talent to impact.

Additionally, their focus on leadership has organically spread into their own community, as many area worship pastors attend their Sunday night services. “Our founding pastor has always been a pastor to pastors,” shares Wells. “Because of that, we really love to minister to fellow leaders and build them up. They come here on Sunday nights to fill up their own well so they can go back out to their churches and minister to their people.”

The Sunday night service has been such an integral part in developing new songs for the church. In fact with these songs impacting not only the Sunday night service but their entire congregation, many ended up on A Thousand More.

For King & Country/Curb | Word album “A Drummer Boy Christmas” on WorshipTeam

For King & Country has released “A Drummer Boy Christmas” through Curb | Word and all songs are now loaded into WorshipTeam.com “A Drummer Boy Christmas” is a recording of some great new songs.

“It all started on a dreary winter’s night in our American hometown of Nashville, TN. It was the end of 2012, the year the band began. We piled ourselves into an old factory- cellos, brass, bass, guitars and of course, a load of drums. We began to frantically rehearse and prepare for an incumbent Christmas tour that we frankly, due to the fact that we’d yet to release a Christmas album or song, had no right to embark on. Yet, from that shotgun rehearsal (where we naively dreamt up our rendition of ‘Little Drummer Boy’) to today, the beauty, drama, and ultimately the miracle of Christmas has caught our musical imagination and therefore been laced into the DNA of the band.

With this as the backdrop, coupled with all we face socially, politically and ethically across the globe, we felt it was the imperfectly perfect time for us to do our small part in telling the story of the redemption that Jesus’ birth offers to you, and to me. So bake those chocolate chip cookies, make a little hot chocolate, strike up that cozy fire, and let us take you on a 44 minute and 49 second musical Christmas journey to celebrate the greatest story the world has ever known!”- Joel & Luke
