Bethel Music is back, this time more formidable than ever. The Redding, CA based worship ministry introduces a new generation of vocalists in an array of hip singers, instrumentalists, and songwriters (that you will definitely fall in love with) all featured on the new album, “We Will Not Be Shaken.”
We Will Not Be Shaken
Bethel Music’s last project was the all-female ensemble called “You Make Me Brave” and before that was their first studio album “Tides.” Each time they keep getting better, they keep reinventing their sound. The hunger in their voices and performances is always visible. Live recordings are clearly a strong forte of the collective of worshipers.
“We Will Not Be Shaken” sees the group return to their usual raw, passionate, live sound. Honestly, it doesn’t get better than this as the project was recorded on a mountaintop overlooking Shasta Lake north of Redding. Talk about literally singing praises from the mountaintop.
The album ushers in some remarkable talents such as Kalley Heiligenthal, Hannah McClure, Paul McClure, Jonathan David Helser and Melissa Helser. Not forgetting some old amigos like Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson, Hunter Thompson, Amanda Cook and Matt Stinton.
The music is worship at is best. Every single track is either a declaration, a love letter to Christ or a proclamation. The 11 tracks flows seamlessly – never tiring, never mediocre, and never trite. Every single song has something outstanding; while I love some songs more than other I can affirmatively say that I like every song on the album (and I can’t recall the last time I felt this way about an album in recent times).
An interesting fact to point out is that each song was co-written by the performing artist, little wonder why each act that performs connects well with every tune in terms of passion and energy.SONGS:
