ARTIST OF THE DAY
Frontman Omega Levine and Drummer/Producer Sam de Jong formed New Zealand’s Parachute Band in 2007, picking up from where the original Parachute Band (1996-2006) had left off. Already, the band has toured relentlessly throughout America, Africa, Asia, the UK and Europe.
From their inception, Parachute Band’s intent has been to take New Zealand’s leading worship songs and introduce them to the world. Grammy Award-winning worship outfit Casting Crowns recorded a version of the band’s song ‘Mercy’ on their album Until the Whole World Hears.
History: Parachute Band are an integral part of Parachute Music; a globally reaching Christian music organisation in New Zealand. Parachute Music runs training events for musicians, artist management and bookings, a recording studio, and the high-profile Parachute Festival which annually attracts over 25,000 people.
Matins & Vespers: The new album title references a worship tradition of the early church. They participated in the discipline that mimicked the cycle of the day. Matins are the morning songs of praise with the sunrise - to stir the soul and declare God's goodness. Vespers are evening prayers of quiet personal worship.
