9/1/2011 - Jeremy Riddle Set To Release New Studio Album, Furious
Vineyard Music 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 before 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 a 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 the 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.”
“Furious”, the album’s title track, is currently going for adds at AC Christian radio formats, and Riddle can be seen weekly on Bethel Church’s live webcasts at www.bethelchurch.tv. For more information about Furious, visit www.vineyardmusic.com

3/5/2009 - Jeremy Riddle's The Now and Not Yet Debuts at #1
HOUSTON, Texas. – The Now And Not Yet, the sophomore CD from critically-acclaimed worship leader Jeremy Riddle, has reached the #1 spot on iTunes’ Christian & Gospel album sales chart. Produced by Ron Aniello (Lifehouse, Jeremy Camp, Sixpence None the Richer), the project was released March 3 and is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2007’s critically-acclaimed Full Attention.
In addition to becoming an instant hit with fans, The Now And Not Yet is already receiving critical acclaim, including comments such as:
“The Now And Not Yet, showcases layers of delayed guitars, thick programmed beats, and tons of gutsy vocals, giving the twelve-song set a broader commercial appeal than say, a Passion CD, and more grit than the acoustic leanings of Chris Tomlin's best-known work.” Christianity Today.com
“The sheer force of Riddle's sometimes guttural sometimes delicate falsetto pulls you in the moment you first hear The Now And Not Yet…delivered with a vulnerability, which can be compared to the way Keith Green used to pour out his heart on his CDs. Yes, it's that powerful.” Worship Leader Magazine
“A raw, heartfelt and unique sound that stands out in today’s market…one of the best albums so far this year. Don’t miss it.” Christian Music Review.org
