Greg de Blieck is a Glasgow hymn writer and frontman for the New Scottish Hymns Band. Over the last 10 years, the band has recorded 3 albums and 1 EP, and most recently they have released a collection of "Lockdown Hymns" - traditional hymns as lyric videos, recorded in a contemporary worship band style during the pandemic, specifically for churches to use in online services. The band's sound combines folk, funk and electronic elements, balancing ancient hymn-writing techniques and contemporary music sensibilities.

Greg's hymns & songs are sung by congregations around the world, and the New Scottish Hymns ministry uses music to encourage the church with the amazing truth about Jesus found in the bible.

Rebecca is a singer-songwriter, music teacher and worship leader based in Edinburgh, Scotland. While studying music at Edinburgh University she began singing with the Origin Gospel Choir and has had the privilege of soloing for them as well as training their choir for many years. The draw to use her talent for God has always been her driving force. The honour it is to be used by God to draw people into His life changing presence through worship is her true passion.

Through Origin, Rebecca has performed in major venues around Edinburgh and Glasgow bringing praise and worship to thousands across Scotland. A number of her songs were used on Origin’s album 'un|broken', published in 2009, and this encouraged and inspired her to continue writing and produce her own album, ‘Dust to Diamonds’, which was released in 2018.

Having met her husband James (who sang tenor in the choir!) they settled in Edinburgh and now have a happy but chaotic life with their 3 wee boys; Oliver, Luke and Joel.

Currently in between writing songs, her days are spent looking after their little pack of boys, working as a piano and vocal teacher and leading worship in their local church, City Gates Baptist Church.
