The beauty and strength found in this quiet acoustic approach to the songs of Zion is stunning. The worship leader will find that the acoustic arrangements on this record are much more accessible to leading congregational worship than the first Zion studio release.
As always Hillsong United does a wonderful job of keeping the songs we love interesting with fresh instrumentation and vocal approaches to the music. Joel Houston, worship leader and songwriter says, “God, I want to be a part of what it is you’re doing, if that means write a song, we’ll do our best to write the best songs we can.” Zion Acoustic Sessions is most definitely an example of that passion to write great songs that declare Jesus to the world.
Sounds like: An organic Hillsong Chapel with a touch of Future of Forestry, and elements of John Mark McMillan.
