BandChristianRock

Raw and rootsy Christian Rock that goes between the harder styles and good old rock'n'roll with the interesting quality of sounding fresh and retro at the same time.

Biography

Ziggie, aka Scott Ziegler, is originally from Buffalo NY, but after a tour in the Navy he settled in Charleston SC and has called this area home for the past 14 years.

Ziggie crosses rock with praise and worship music into a blend that sounds fresh and retro at the same time. His first and most basic influences are the Beatles and Led Zeppelin followed closely by Phil Keaggy and Petra.

Ziggie has been leading prasie and worship since 1997 and has lead six of the eight worship teams he's been a member of, including the 1997 March For Jesus in Charleston. He has also been a member of five Christian bands. He plays rhythm and bass guitars and has also picked up a bit of lead.

In July 2003, Ziggie released an acoustic project called "The Process", which was followed up by his first full length release entitled "The Music Of My Life" in 2005. Ziggie was also selected to proceed to the semi-finals of the Exalting Him! National Talent Search in the Atlanta, GA region this past August. "Nice sound, great style!" was the feedback he received.

Ziggie has a passion to share music that promotes and exalts the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom work. He also has a heart to reach out to the poor and destitute. He hopes, with his music, to be able to support and fund the ministries of others with this same calling.

Lyrics

Lord You Are God

Written By: Scott and Shelly Ziegler

Lord, You are God and everything You do is righteous
Lord, You are God and everything You do is merciful
Lord, You are God and everything You do is faithful
Because Lord, You are God
Because Lord, You are God
Yes, You are God

I remember the days of old, reflecting on all Your deeds
Thinking about the work of Your hands I reach out to You
I long for You like a thirsty land

I have hidden myself in You, teach me, Lord, to do Your will
Let Your Holy Spirit be my guide; show me where to walk
For I come to You in prayer

Make me hear of Your love every morning
I am trusting You to the glory of Your name

The God Of My Peace

Written By: Scott Ziegler

I took my troubles to the LORD and He heard my cry
I took my troubles to the LORD and He answered my prayer
From the depths of despair when I felt His presence there
He made me aware that He cares for me
He set my feet upon the Rock, in my heart I heard Him knock
And when the door I did unlock, He was holding the key to my heart
He came in and greeted me with love
So much joy and peace I could not get enough
Then He took my sin to bring release
He is the God of my peace

From the depths of despair when I feel Your presence there
You make me aware that You care for me
You set my feet upon the Rock, in my heart I hear You knock
And when the door I do unlock, You are holding the key to my heart
You come in and greet me with love
So much joy and peace I cannot get enough
Then You took my sin to bring release
You are the God of my peace

Cast your cares upon Him ‘cause He cares for you
Cast your cares upon Him ‘cause He cares for you
Come to me all you heavy laden and I will give you rest
Come to me all you heavy laden and I will give you rest

Take your troubles to the Lord, He will hear Your cry
Take your troubles to the Lord, He will answer Your prayer
From the depths of despair you’ll feel His presence there
And He’ll make you aware that He cares for you
He’ll set your feet upon the Rock, in your heart you’ll hear Him knock
And when the door you unlock, He’ll be holding the key to your heart
He’ll come in and greet you with love
So much joy and peace you cannot get enough
Then He’ll take your sin and bring release
And He’ll be the God of your peace

The Music Of My Life

Written By: Scott Ziegler

When I lie awake at night and think about Your promises
My heart wells up with delight
And I thank You for Your faithfulness to me
You look down upon me with Your love and command my every step
You fill my life, Lord, with Your grace
So my heart is filled with thankfulness to You
You have shown me Your Truth

You’re merciful and that is why I sing
You’re wonderful and You fill me with delight
You’re principles are a symphony of light
Your Word, oh Lord, is the music of my life

Your Spirit gives me songs to sing about the joy that You give to me
And the melodies, Lord, that You bring
Tell of the many good things You’ve done for me
You have set my spirit free

You created me to worship You, Lord
To be lost inside of You is more than I could ask for
You created me to worship You, Lord
To be lost inside of You is more than I could ask for

So with every note I sing, with the strum of every chord
And with the rhythmic beat of every drum I worship You, my Lord
