| North Coast Sessions – Getty | Review

On the surface… This is a well put together album.  Perhaps noticing how online streaming has changed how we listen, the Getty’s have this time released a short album- just 8 tracks in total, and they’ve done them well.  Well produced, slick and accessible.  Interesting to listen to, but not…

| Holy Roar – Chris Tomin | Review

On the surface… This sounds like your standard contemporary christian album.  Lots of rocking guitars and synths and strong bass and drums.  Catchy riffs and sing loud in the car moments. We historically have some awesome songs from Tomlin (how great is our God, our chains are gone, Our God,…

‘Tumbling Sky’ by Matt Searles

Before I get to Matt's new album, its good to be able to say that this won't be the only only album reviewed over the next few weeks and months from UK groups and individuals. That in itself is extraordinary; a great blessing and encouragement from God. However, into this…

Tone Deaf Worshippers…

It’s taken a while, but I finally got around to reading Bob Kauflin’s latest book ‘True Worshippers’. I’m slightly regretting that fact now, because personally and also for my own ministry (and I’m sure for that of many others) I found it such a helpful and encouraging tome to read. But it isn’t weighty to…
