Music has been an integral part of Lincoln Brewster’s life since early childhood when he began playing mandolin at age five and later picked up the electric guitar at nine. That love for music took him down a winding road that included a season playing for rocker Steve Perry (Journey) and recording offers from mainstream labels all before he was 21. However, Brewster, who had made a commitment to Christ in his late teens, walked away from the promise of rock stardom and instead took a position at his local church as a sound technician. Years later, Lincoln is again playing before thousands, this time leading others in worship at music festivals and concerts and at Bayside Church in Roseville where he serves as Worship Pastor. When not on the road or leading at his church, the husband and father of two young boys makes time to write, serve as a seminar instructor, and create instructional DVDs for musicians.
