The Longing Biography
Fronted by award-winning songwriter Jason Ingram, The Longing additionally comprises three accomplished musicians whose credits include a range of touring, production and studio work. Guitarist Dave May (ZoeGirl, Stacie Orrico, David Crowder Band), drummer Drew Lashock (Paul Colman), and bassist David Childress (Joy Williams, Rebecca St. James, 4Him) felt the corresponding call to bring their gifts home and serve the local church. Members of The Longing regularly provide music for Fellowship Bible Church in Franklin, Tenn.
Ingram comments, "Over the years, I've become more aware of my absolute inadequacy to approach God, much less lead others there. What's amazing is how God accepts our worship, broken as it may be, and actually delights in it. That truth leaves me with a longing to create something beautiful for Him."
It is out of this desire Ingram and his bandmates are recording an album which seeks to capture God's life-transforming grace message on tape. Co-produced by Tom Laune (Phil Keaggy, Point of Grace, Michael W. Smith), the project is designed to offer listeners a vessel through which they may come to a place of complete submission before God.
President and co-founder of Indelible Creative Group, Chris Thomason elaborates, "There are few things more inspiring than music that compels us to live with passion and clarity. This is how The Longing draws us in - by creating powerful music that encourages us toward a lifestyle relationship with God."
