one sonic society is about unity, creativity and community…
Led by Jason Ingram [vocals/guitar], Stu Garrard [guitar/vocals] and Paul Mabury [drums]; one sonic society is an international collective of accomplished writers and musicians who have come together through a shared mission to inspire and challenge the worship genre by expanding and empowering the Church with the arts.
Each member has had their share of solo success. A worship leader at his home church, Jason Ingram is one of the Christian music industry’s most in demand songwriters/producers having co-written such popular songs as “I Will Follow” by Chris Tomlin, “Your Love” by Brandon Heath, “By Your Side” by Tenth Avenue North, and “Lead Me” by Sanctus Real. Paul Mabury is an acclaimed drummer/producer who became part of Australia’s Hillsong Church, helped produce the Hillsong United record All of the Above, and toured the world with artists including Brooke Fraser, Matt Maher, and Darlene Zschech. Stu G. made his mark in the music community as a longtime member of the pioneering U.K. worship band Delirious?, known for such modern worship anthems as “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever” and “Majesty.”
All three would agree that one sonic society is different for them. One sonic society is not artist driven, its song driven. It’s not about performing in front of massive crowds or gaining the next radio hit. The one sonic society focus is to stir the church with new worship music that connects and resonates within people.
“There is a vision the three of us share,” says Ingram. “It’s simply a passion to see people worship God. We want to be available for God to use our gifts plus the experiences we’ve walked out, in our respective journeys, to be able to serve the church.”
The first two one sonic society ep’s titled one and sonic have already provided the church with soon to be worship standards “Forever Reign” and “Greatness of our God.” These two songs have been recorded by Hillsong, Passion, Darlene Zschech, Natalie Grant, and WOW worship, and are being sung by churches around the world.
The newest ep society features two original songs penned by the members of one sonic society, as well as songs co-written with Kristian Stanfill, Paul Baloche and Hillsong’s Mia Fieldes.
The one sonic society name is becoming a trusted brand in the worship music community, and together these three individuals have discovered a new way to employ their gifts for the Kingdom. “It’s been a calling on our hearts,” says Ingram. “We’re compelled to write songs for the church. We want nothing more than to serve in this way.”
