If you like worship music ...

... then you probably have heard of Matt Redman, or at least, you've heard some of his songs on Air 1. Do you recognize "Blessed be Your Name" or "You Never Let Go"? Yeah, those are Matt Redman songs!

So Matt's been busy moving from England to the U.S. to plant a church in Atlanta, taking care of his wife, who is having baby #4, and just this week, he was finishing a new album with more awesome worship music. His new CD, We Shall Not Be Shaken, is coming out August 25th!

I love that Matt used the Psalms as inspiration for this new album:

 “This album praises God’s steadiness,” says Redman. “We’re being reminded how shakable earthly things are—job losses, home foreclosures. When we traveled to Korea, there were high profile suicides due to the failing marketplace. So it feels appropriate now to address the economy in a worship song. Nothing in the Psalms was ever detached from its era.”
So here's a question for you: who's your favorite worship artist/band? Post it in the comment section. I'd love to know!

Lincoln Brewster, but he is also my Guitar Nemsis.  His songs are so great and his solos are so perfectly fitting for his songs.  My worship leader says, "Just play something there, you know the key of the song, you can wing it".  But when I try something else it just doesn't feel right.  That is because lincoln Brewster already wrote the perfect solo.
