Integrity Music announces the re-signing of trailblazing worship leader Lincoln Brewster, building on a 15-year 
relationship with the California-based musician who helped put a rock spin on modern worship while introducing the 
genre to contemporary Christian radio. 
"I am honored to announce that after 15 years, Integrity Music will continue to serve as the music partner for Lincoln 
Brewster and his ministry going forward," said C. Ryan Dunham, President of Integrity Music. "I have had the 
privilege of getting to know Lincoln and his wife Laura on a personal level and love their heart, their passion for 
serving and their dedication to their local church. It is a privilege to come alongside an artist like Lincoln, who has 
such incredible talent that he is choosing to use for God's glory." 
Originally signed to the label in the late 90s, Integrity released Brewster's first album, a self-titled debut in 1999 
when modern worship music comprised only a small niche within Christian music before becoming the top-selling 
genre that it is today. Eight albums later, Brewster has made an indelible impact on modern worship, opening doors 
at Christian radio for other worship artists with his singles "Everlasting God," "Let The Praises Ring," "Love The 
Lord," "Today Is The Day," "Salvation Is Here," "The Power Of Your Name" and more. 
"In 1999, the only worship singles that were getting any significant airplay on Christian radio were songs from the 
debut SONICFLOOd project and Lincoln Brewster," says acclaimed radio consultant Chris Hauser. 
"I can distinctly remember getting adds for "Take Me Higher," "The Power of Your Name" (with Jars of Clay's Dan 
Haseltine) and even "Lord I Lift Your Name on High," he continues. "These songs were taking root on radio 
playlists, opening doors for Lincoln as a 'sure thing' for great corporate, vertical songs that fit on radio while also 
paving the way for Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, the Passion movement records and many others." 
Looking ahead to August, Brewster and Integrity are preparing for a global release of his new album, Oxygen, which 
is co-produced by Brewster and Colby Wedgeworth and features all new songs penned by Brewster including the 
project's first radio single, "Made New." 
"Lincoln is a renowned guitarist, songwriter, artist and worship leader who has produced many great albums and 
songs," adds Dunham. "But with this new album, Oxygen, people are going to experience a whole new Lincoln 
Brewster. It's a new sound with a nod to the past and a bold step forward... I believe it is his best album yet." 
Music has been an integral part of Lincoln Brewster's life since early childhood when he would "sit in" on rehearsals 
with his mother as she played with local bands in their hometown of Homer, Alaska. By age five, Brewster was 
playing the mandolin and by age nine, he had picked up the electric guitar. That love for music took him down a 
winding road that included a season playing for rocker Steve Perry (Journey) and recording offers from mainstream 
labels all before he was 21. But Brewster, who had made a commitment to Christ in his late teens, walked away from 
the promise of rock stardom and instead took a position at his local church as a sound technician. 
Years later, Brewster is again playing before thousands, this time leading people in worship at music festivals and 
concerts across the U.S., and at Bayside Church near Sacramento, California, where he serves as Worship Arts 
Pastor. Brewster's recordings include the albums Real Life, Joy To The World, Today Is The Day, Let The Praises 
Ring, All To You and Amazed.
