Jules Riding is a fulltime Christian singer from New Zealand. He has released twelve albums and twice won ‘Gospel Album of the Year’ at the NZ Music Awards. He has three Gold albums.
He became a Christian after an ‘extensive search for truth’ through alternative religions, meeting an articulate intelligent Christian woman (who became his girlfriend) and after a personal crisis forced a examination of the meaning of life.
He founded and directed the Elkanah School of Music Ministry which ran for eight years on Great Barrier Island NZ, but now concentrates his energies on concert ministry and teaching on worship throughout Europe.
His album ‘Cataclysm‘ is a close examination of the way we handle personal struggles in a pluralistic society. He also believes the growing number of global cataclysms indicates we live in a time of human history the Bible calls ‘the last days’. His latest album ‘Rivers‘ focuses on renewal in the Holy Spirit.
He lists his musical influences as the folk greats from the 60s and 70s: Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, and various Christian singers: Keith Green, John Michael Talbot, Michael W Smith, Ian White, Kari Jobe, Yonina and the Australian group Sons of Korah.
