B0rn and raised in a small town in Alaska, acclaimed worship leader Lincoln Brewster’s childhood in a broken home was perhaps a little too “real.” It was an environment darkened by his stepfather’s violent behavior and alcohol addiction. An environment from which Brewster and his mother sought solace in music.

“My mom loved music and played with local bands,” he says. “She was the one who inspired my love for singing and playing instruments.”

As Lincoln Brewster bonded with his mom through music, he began mastering a variety of instruments —including a stunning prowess on the guitar. It was this incredible talent that caught the attention of mainstream labels, landed Brewster a “gig” playing with rocker Steve Perry (formerly of the band Journey) and earned him a mainstream record contract by age 19.

But God had other plans. After attending church with his high school sweetheart and now wife, Laura,Lincoln Brewster yielded his life to Christ. Filled with a new passion and purpose. Brewster walked away from the promise of rock stardom to take a job at his local church. This new trajectory eventually led him to a recording partnership with praise and worship label Integrity Music.

Since that time, Lincoln Brewster has performed and crafted songs that have helped shape the sound of today’s modern worship while also climbing Christian radio charts. These include global anthems such as “Today Is The Day,” “God You Reign,” “Everlasting God,” “Salvation Is Here” and “The Power of Your Name.”

So after six acclaimed albums and multiple hit songs, where would Lincoln Brewster’s musical journey take him next? As it would turn out, inside himself.  A new, more personal approach to songwriting yielded Real Life, a dynamic worship collection that features Lincoln Brewster’s guitar expertise set against a backdrop of soaring songs of faith. Featuring co-writes with Jason Ingram, Hillsong Music’s Mia Fieldes and Dove Award winning writer Paul Baloche, it’s a project that examines and celebrates life through the perspective of someone who has truly lived.

“My pastor says, ‘Can you imagine what it would be like if people truly lived like their best days are ahead of them and not behind them?’” Brewster recalls. “I believe in this song and I want people to understand that their best days truly are ahead of them.”

Lincoln Brewster currently serves as the worship arts pastor for Bayside Church in Granite Bay, California. And his family—wife Laura, and sons Levi, 8, and Liam, 5—is his priority through it all. “My wife and I have been married for 16 years,” Brewster says. “My family is the biggest deal for me. I didn’t have strong male role models in my life as a kid. But God’s given me the courage to not let my past control my future… He’s given me the chance to be the father I never had and the husband I never saw modeled.”
