Lincoln Brewster began his musical journey as a toddler. His grandfather bought him a drum kit, and by age seven the prodigy added guitar and mandolin to his repertoire. While still a kid, Brewster honed his skills in a local bar. He moved to California while still in high school and participated in jazz and marching bands. Brewster was signed to a record label by the time he was 19, but something was still missing. His high school sweetheart helped him fill that gap by inviting him to church, and he eventually put his label deal aside to work at a rural California church. Eventually, songs with a spiritual bent began to pour out, and a worship leader was born.
