Review: The Four Song EP contains well produced theologically rich songs. The standout song is by far “I Choose To Praise You” which from my view will most definitely resonate with many and I am sure this particular song is already being used in many different settings. The other 3 songs on the EP are also well produced and theologically rich as well done, well crafted songs. The feel reminds me of a Sovereign Grace album in theological depth, production and beauty. You get the sense that the writers of these songs have spent many years developing and writing for the church and the production highlights the songs beautifully.
This project and the whole idea, reminds me as a songwriter that my calling as a songwriter is not meant to isolate me from others. They have built their ministry on community where each others each of them can share their gifts for the Glory of God. This should be a lesson for developing songwriters as far too many songwriters try to be producer, vocalist, arranger, studio musician in addition to writing the song. That will work for some, perhaps, but for most songwriters embracing your gifting and role in the overall scheme of a project like this can lead to beauty and clear communication that is rarely possible for one person alone. I am inspired and applaud the heart, effort and accomplishment.
