The best kept secret in music

Your songs are anointed and bring God so much glory b/c of the words and the way that He moves through your talents as musicians. I know you've probably heard all this before, but just know that your gifts have really blessed me and ministered to me in a huge way this week when I really needed encouragement and truth spoken to my heart. - Fan mail


"The six-night Christian gathering at the legislature grounds will be like a mini-Christian Woodstock, with two other bands joining Bringing Fish later in the week." - The Edmonton Journal


"What results is a powerful dynamic range that encompasses the most intimate, vulnerable moments and moments of explosive energy and intense musical epiphanies. Bringing Fish brings this dynamic range to a mix of contemporary worship songs and original works, ensuring that each event has something for everyone who attends." - The Bridge


"The worship was led by a band called Bringing Fish. A group of young men who led by the Lord to put together a band to do outreach on campus. Through the year, they held several evangelistic - oriented concerts here and we were blessed by their generosity and humility. Amazingly, they came to us at a time when we were incapable of putting together a Night of Praise or any other worship gathering ourselves, but God graciously gave them to the U of A as a gift for this season." - Canada In Prayer News Reel


"This was amazing. I don't even know how to put it into words. This is exactly what I needed!" - Comment Card


"I am still trying to accept Christ. Bringing Fish brought me closer to that." - Comment Card

Bio

5000 people sat hungry while 12 miracle-seasoned disciples mired themselves in unbelief. A boy offered his 5 loaves and 2 fish with the faith they could help the situation. bringing fish has taken its trajectory from this boy, knowing that everything we have has been gifted to us by God and should be returned to Him at every opportunity to be used as He sees fit.

Each member of bringing fish had pursued music relentlessly and been pulled inescapably back to the truth that music was given us solely as a means to worship God. Their collective goal from the beginning has simply been to worship in such a genuine and transparent way that the presence and reality of God is unquestionable.

A year after their inception, bf released their first full length album “the bridge invisible”, a disc aimed at showing people the beauty of Christ and their own beauty in light of His sacrifice for them. They sweated out their ardent message at city-wide festivals and youth gatherings across the prairies making the most of every opportunity they could find or create. bf took their message to local theatres monthly, playing gigs for others to raise funds for their own events. These events culminated in the summer of 2001 when they rented one of North America’s premier theatres, the Winspear centre and put on a week’s worth of events outdoors on the Edmonton Legislature grounds during the world track and field championships.

bf’s second full length recording “despite the changing day” was released in the summer of 2003 revealing a definite gelling of the band’s writing style as well as a further refinement of their musical and lyrical palettes. It was released just in time for the group to make the trip to Sioux Falls, SD to lead a week of worship for an international youth conference held every 3 years by the North American Baptist Conference.

The members of bringing fish continue to distill scripture into songs that shine poetically and musically, writing and testing them weekly at their home church and abroad. Their hope is that they will constantly challenge others, and be challenged themselves, to offer what little we all have to be multiplied by the God who feeds the masses with a boy’s lunch and moves mountains with faith the size of a mustard seed.
