Award-winning Brian Doerksen to release collection of favourites

|PIC1|Integrity Music announces the October release of It's Time, a collection of favourites and two new songs from award-winning songwriter and worship artist Brian Doerksen.

The 15-track album features newly-recorded, guitar-driven versions of Doerksen's popular songs such as "Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing)" and "Come, Now is the Time to Worship" delivered with a "classic rock" twist from producers Philip Janz and Brian Thiessen.

The new arrangements of his better-known songs will once again capture the hearts of worshippers while breathing new life into these modern hymns.

In addition, the album offers two new Doerksen-penned songs - "Broken and Beautiful" and "It's Time for the Reign of God", from which the title was taken.

The It's Time Worship Tools kit provides an instructional DVD featuring guitar tutorials and chord tab graphics along with a digital songbook that includes lead sheets, lyrics and guitar chord charts. The Worship Tools resource is the perfect "tool" for making Doerksen's songs accessible to musicians of varying skill levels.
