Meet the Artist
Delirious was making waves in its native land of England long before its music hit the world. The band was born in January 1996, but the story of these five musicians began six years ago in Littlehampton, England. In an effort to reach British youth, the Arun Community Church started a monthly outreach service called Cutting Edge. At that time, drummer Stewart (Stew) Smith and Becca Jupp, wife of Delirious keyboardist Tim, were leading the youth group at Arun. Martin wrote new music for each of the gatherings and when he, Stew and Tim had six songs, they recorded a demo. The band became known as Cutting Edge and the tape as Cutting Edge One. Increasing demand for new music led to Cutting Edge Two in 1994; by the time Cutting Edge Three and Four were released in 1995, bassist Jon Thatcher and guitarist Stuart Garrard (Stu G) had joined.
After the band went full-time, they changed their name to Deliriou5?. In 1996, Delirious bridged the gap between their Cutting Edge days and their more aggressive musical direction with Live and In the Can. It was then followed by King of Fools that became an international success.
The band is famous with classic songs that are sung by churches all over the world. Some of these songs are 'I Could Sing of Your Love Forever,' 'Deeper,' 'History Maker,' and many more.
Customer Reviews For "Delirious?: Ultimate Collection"Write Your Own Review
Many Christian artists envisaged that the only to ever have a crossover pop hit is when they lowered the religious quotient in their songs. As a result, many of these acts have produced songs that are neither really secular love songs nor Christian songs, resulting in songs that are too nebulous for any good. This is not the case for Delirious? This British band has had 11 UK Top 40 hits but yet they are also staunchly upfront about their love for Jesus and His Gospel. They are not only verbal about their faith, but they have a deep-seated passion to make Jesus palatable through our lives in worship and social actions. Many of their songs are not only God-centered worship pieces but they also challenge us to translate the Gospel into actions. Following in the footsteps of Tim Hughes, Paul Baloche and Paul Wilbur, Delirious? gets the ultimate treatment courtesy of Integrity Music "Ultimate Collection" is a retrospective collection that selectively garners 16 tracks from only a handful of Delirious? albums.
