BackgroundEdit

Born in Mount Holly Township, New Jersey[citation needed] Jeremy Riddle's debut album, Full Attention, was released on March 6, 2007. It peaked on the Billboard Top Christian and Gospel Albums Chart at No. 47,[3] and the only single released from the album, "Sweetly Broken", peaked at No. 19 on both the Billboard Hot Christian Songs and Christian Airplay Charts.[4][5] It has also been used as a contemporary worship song.

In 2009, Riddle released The Now and Not Yet through Varietal Records. Riddle has stated on his website that the reason for this album is to "[create] fresh expressions of worship that both exalt the Creator and encourage and enlighten the people of God." The album has appeared on two charts, Billboard's Hot Christian Albums format (peaking at No. 15) and the Top Heatseekers (peaking at No. 11).[6]

The first single off the new album is "Bless His Name", written by Jeremy's friend Tony Sanchez. The song charted on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs format, peaking at No. 36.[7]

In 2010, Riddle released Prepare The Way: Live and in 2011, his newest album, Furious.[8]

Since September 2011, Jeremy has been the worship community pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California, where he frequently leads worship. He also appears on albums by Bethel Music. Some of the songs from Bethel music include "This is Amazing Grace"[9] and "In Your Light" from the album For the Sake of the World. "This is Amazing Grace" song was written by Phil Wickham, Josh Farro and Jeremy Riddle, and produced by Pete Kipley. Billboard named it No. 1 on the Christian Airplay Songs chart for 2014.[10]
