Scott Riggan Biography

Although Scott Riggan has become known for his popular worship songs, he's not exactly comfortable with the label of "worship artist".

"It's true that my shows end with a time of worship," explains Scott, "and I do write a lot of worshipful songs. But my songwriting covers it all - love, faith, family - you name it. I don't feel any need to limit my subject matter."

But with songs like "I Love You Lord" (his nationwide #1 radio hit) and his communion song "Remember" being sung in churches all over the US (and in other parts of the world), Scott started to feel some pressure to record a set of worship tunes for his second solo project.

"Everyone encouraged me to do a worship CD. Instead, I ended up writing a bunch of songs about what it means to be a worshiper." At the heart of Scott's new project is a powerful verse of Scripture from the book of Romans:

"Therefore I urge you, brothers in view of God's mercy,
to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing
to God - this is your spiritual act of worship..."
[Romans 12:1, NIV]

"In our culture, worship is something we do in a church building - we 'worship' and then the preacher gives a sermon," Scott explains. "But the way I see it, worship is better defined as a life lived in submission to our great and holy God. A life lived on the altar."

This idea of a life lived "on the altar" runs throughout "Bring Glory" in songs like "I Live To Praise You", "Altar of my Heart" and "Matches". The CD opens with "Great Is The Lord" and reaches a key moment with Scott's song "Lay Me Down":

"I am a proud man in my heart of hearts
It is not in my nature to kneel
But falling down at the feet of the Lord of the stars
Now I know how humility feels..."

"If God is just a mediocre god," Scott says, "then what would be the point of worshiping Him? The starting point for an attitude of worship is acknowledging the greatness of God."
