Jules Riding has travelled extensively throughout New Zealand and many countries with music ministry for more than twenty years. He began his involvement with Christian music in 1976 with the St. Pauls Singers in Auckland, a creative itinerant church choir that wrote songs and released albums. Since that time he has written many songs used in the Songs of the Nations, Songs of the Kingdom and the New Harvest songbooks. His songs have been recorded by Scripture in Song and Maranatha Music among others.
In 1984 he released his first solo album ON THIS NIGHT, followed in 1987 by HEARTSTRINGS. Both albums won Gospel Album of the Year at the New Zealand Music Awards, equivalent to a Dove Award in the USA. His more recent albums include CATACLYSM (2010) and SANCTUARY (2014).
