Deuteronomy 6:6-7

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. ~ Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Jeremy Riddle - "Furious!"

I love getting the opportunity to preview a new worship CD, because we love music over here at our home. And this month, we had the chance to listen to Jeremy Riddle's latest project, Furious. A great contemporary album, I was actually reminded of Bono when I first listened to it. This would be a CD that will appeal to the younger set for sure, although I did enjoy it too ;) Check out the title track, and You Are Good, 2 of our favorites.

Here's what the publisher had to say...

Vineyard Worship artist and worship leader Jeremy Riddle has announced the release of his new studio album entitled, Furious. The album is set for release on September 20 via NewDay Distribution. Riddle began production on the album nearly a year ago with Dove Award winning producer Ed Cash ( Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, David Crowder Band ) at the helm. Cash's contribution forms the backbone of the album which also features production from Bobby Hartry, a long time Riddle collaborator. The project follows Prepare The Way: Live, an album recorded in front of a live audience in Corpus Christi, Tex., earlier this year from Vineyard.

Riddle describes Furious saying, "It's hard to come up with words that depict the magnitude of Christ's love - the depth and width of it. Furious doesn't work outside of the context of love; we tend to translate the word as angry, but I see it as a super-powerful force; stronger, deeper, broader than our vocabulary can fully describe."

Four years on the road as a touring worship leader eventually took its toll on Jeremy, so in January 2011, the former jr. high youth pastor came on staff as worship community pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, Calif. Working under pastors Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy facilitates worship community of over 200 people within the church.

"My wife (Katie) and I have always had a heart to serve the local church and never wanted to do the full-time travel thing for very long, so it felt like a good time to transition into something different," Jeremy says. "I've developed such an appreciation for thr fruit that has been sowed from my life- personally and artistically- by being part of a local community." Consequently, several of the tracks on Furious are also featured on Be Lifted High, the most recent album from Bethel Church.

"These songs are a reflection of being part of something bigger than just me," Jeremy says. "Through some significant growth in understanding and living out humility from a very independent place, I've shifted into a place where I can't even claim this record is completely inspired by me. There are so many elements of the album that could never have flowed from me had I not been connected to people walking out life with me."
