The Vine Band is a modern praise and worship band based in Hong Kong, China. Led by worship leader, Tom Read, The Vine Band has been pioneering a new sound of worship in Hong Kong, and throughout Asia.
The band’s mission is to equip the next generation of worshippers in Asia, to rise up and find their voice; to be released into a new freedom and passion in worship. Over the last decade, The Vine Band has had the privilege of leading people into worship all across Asia including: China, Taiwan, The Philippines, and Singapore.
In 2006, The Vine Band released its debut live worship album called 'Who May Ascend? – Live worship from Hong Kong' that features 10 original songs written by the band. The album was recorded and produced by Peter Wallis, from Hillsong Church, Sydney (For All You’ve Done, Hope, God He Reigns). It received wide international critical acclaim.
The Vine Band recorded its second live worship album, ‘From Ashes To Beauty’ in December 2007. It features 11 brand new worship songs including a new version of God of Justice, featuring international worship leader, Tim Hughes. Once again recorded and produced by Peter Wallis, the recording has seen The Vine Band uniquely partnering with Care For Children (www.careforchildren.com.cn), a children's charity based in China, to raise awareness for the plight of over one million orphaned children in China.
The vision of The Vine Band is to see and hear a new sound of worship rising up from Asia and make a significant impact around the world.
