MOBILE, Ala. (September 10, 2009) – Integrity Music has signed worship artist and songwriter Vicky Beeching for the worldwide release of a self-titled EP due November 24 and followed by a full-length CD, Eternity Invades, slated for release in early 2010.
â€œVicky has spent years as a worship leader trapped in a traditional record industry system,â€ said Jay King, Vice President of A&R and Artist Development. â€œWe are excited to deliver an amazing worship experience with an artist who is now free to be who God has called her to be.â€
The British born and Oxford-educated Beeching is currently in the studio in her U.S. hometown of San Diego, finishing up three songs for the EP, which is being produced by upcoming new producer Jonathan MacIntosh (a former guitarist for Tim Hughes, Brenton Brown, Kevin Max and more). Beeching has also been collaborating with MacIntoshâ€™s wife, Sarah MacIntosh, the former lead singer for Chasing Furies. The two have written several of the new songs expected to be on Beechingâ€™s full-length CD debut for Integrity.
In addition to her own songs, Beeching collaborates with many different songwriters, and one of her most recent co-writes is â€œGlory to God Forever,â€ which she co-wrote with Steve Fee. The song is climbing the charts at A/C Christian radio and is from Feeâ€™s new INO Records album Hope Rising, which releases on Oct. 6.
Prior to being signed by Integrity Music, 30-year-old Beeching had already built up serious worship and recording credentials.
In the UK, Vicky partnered with Vineyard Music (where she worked with Integrity labelmate Brian Doerkson), writing and performing songs on the Hungry, Holy, Surrender and Best of Vineyard projects. She was also associated with Soul Survivor in London, contributing to their Peopleâ€™s Album and Live Worship 2005. During these years she led worship alongside Matt Redman, Tim Hughes and Brenton Brown.
Beeching moved to the U.S. in 2004. Two critically acclaimed CDs later (2005â€™s Yesterday Today and Forever and 2007â€™s Painting The Invisible), she has led worship in almost all 50 States, as well as coast to coast across Canada and throughout Europe.
