A very different way of doing Chris Tomlin’s “Our God”, a cool version me thinks
A useful article by worship leader Ben Cantelon, on why silence/not playing is crucial for a musician serving on a worship team. Find it here
Some more useful practical and specific tips on how to be an effective support vocalists. They’re talking about having a bigger group of singers but tips like thinking of “blending” etc… are very useful!
Those lovely people at worshipcentral have created another instructional video to help any electric guitarists/budding ones on how to create atmosphere in between songs/during slower songs etc…
worth a watch in my book, it’s only a few mins!
As well as “King of Nations” being released (and the already mentioned Soul Survivor 2010 “Light the Sky”) there are 2 other hotly anticipated albums out this week
Chris Tomlin’s new album “And if our God is for us” will be sure to be a big seller worldwide. Listened to it once through and there’s been an attempt to try and have a different sound to previous albums. The addition of strings to the title track “Our God” is nice, and the onerepublic-esque “I will follow” is interesting. I’m sure you’ll make up your own minds of what you think of it.

Another potential big release is Brenton Brown’s “Our God is near”. Another songwriter who’s aim is to be very congregation focused, Brenton has written some cracking songs and I’m sure there’s some waiting to be played on this album too. Spotify link here
Ones to watch out for: Hillsong Chapel (acoustic album) “Yahweh”, the sure to be anthemic Jesus Culture “Come Away”
Following on from the last post, you can now listen to the whole new Newday album “King of Nations” on spotify! Some brilliant new songs that are aching to be introduced. Check them out here
