Worship Leader magazine calls Oxygen “(Brewster’s) strongest effort in recent history … Lincoln Brewster continues to pave the way for the future of worship music… This is Lincoln’s most exciting and accessible album to date.” Garnering media exposure in both Christian and mainstream circles, Brewster was recently featured on Fox News Channel and is on the cover of CCM Magazine’s August 15 digital issue, as well as the September/October issue of Worship Musician.
