Reverent Worship may represent the cutting edge of where worship and contemporary Christian music may be going. His Name Is Love is a collection of songwriters, worship leaders, musicians, and singers that found their way together to complete this project. The artists and producers do not identify themselves on the CD or their website. Many of the songs sound both familiar and fresh and are aimed at the worship leader.
The secret sauce behind this collaboration are two songwriters, Josh Cobia and Andrew Capra, who teamed up as worship leaders for a Los Angeles based church plant. “Deeper” and “Reckless” standout and the alternative version of “Lead Me to the Water” with the additional womens vocals is engaging on many levels. The idea and concept of a collective effort to write and create songs for worship leaders with no strings attached leaves one inspired that the next generation is in good hands. At the end of the day, Reverent Worship delivers great songs and a “reason to praise”.
Sounds like: His Name Is Love delivers Nashville sensibilities with a California edged adult/rock worship ensemble using balanced arrangements that merge various guitar tones with well executed results. “Reasons to Praise” is an up tempo rock tune definitely worth a listen and infectious.
