Matt Redman was born February 14, 1974 in England and is a Christian worship leader, songwriter and author. Redman has worked with other Christian organizations and artists, such as Newfrontiers, Passion Conferences, Hillsong London, Chris Tomlin, Tim Hughes and Soul Survivor. Redman is also known to co-write and perform with other bands, such as Hillsong London, whom he wrote a song for on their 2005 album, “Jesus Is.”

Redman's love for music began in the church where he sang as a boy in the choir. By the time he was 15 Redman began to lead his own congregation and became a renowned worship leader in his community.

In the late 1990s, Redman took a sabbatical from his church and went to work in America, where he recorded his album “Where Angels Fear To Tread.” Upon his return in 2002, Redman moved to Brighton, England to work at the Newfrontiers church, where he is involved in their Newday and Together on a Mission conferences. In 2004 Redman joined a new church, The Point, in Sussex, England, led by Will Kemp.

While committed to his church work, Redman continues to write, record, and release music. Highly respected in the Christian music world both at home in England and across the ocean in the U.S, many artists have covered Redman's songs. Of note are the popular “Heart Of Worship,” “Let Everything That Has Breath,” “Once Again,” “Undignified” and “Better Is One Day.”

2005 saw Redman win a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year for “Blessed Be Your Name” and a Grammy Award nomination for “Our God.” In 2008, Redman moved to Atlanta, Georgia with his family to start a new church with Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin called Passion City Church. 2010 marked Redman's return to England and the Brighton community at St Peter's Church, Brighton.
