Jesus Culture with Martin Smith: Live From New York [edit]
by Jesus Culture | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: November 20, 2012
 

Recorded live at our Jesus Culture Conference in New York in June 2012, this album is a dynamic partnership of voices who have helped shape a generation of worshippers.

Last year, God called us to Chicago to empower and release a generation that would bring transformation to our nation and the rest of the world. During this event, we experienced three days of passionate worship, powerful teaching and amazing ministry. On the final night, we stood in awe, as fourteen thousand fully engaged followers of Jesus, spontaneously worshiped Him for almost twenty minutes. The ongoing testimonies from these participants and the tens of thousands who watched online, confirmed to us Godís presence and power was released that day in a phenomenal way to mark a generation.
What we experienced was incredible.

Our summer began with New York. We had the absolute honor and privilege to partner with Martin Smith, former lead singer for Delirious? and someone who has fathered the worship movement of this generation with great impact. For the past few years, the Lord has brought our two paths together and we were thrilled to have him at our Jesus Culture Conference in New York. Our own Chris Quilala and Kim Walker-Smith led the main worship sessions with Martin. The passion and hunger that came forth in those sets was indescribable and we are excited to be releasing this album that captured many of those moments.

We were also joined by Kristene DiMarco, Byran and Katie Torwalt, and Derek Johnson for worship. At each set, the arena was filled with the sound of worshipping hearts set on fire for God.

We are so excited to bring you this album; Jesus Culture with Martin Smith: Live From New York. We believe lives were marked for revival as we gathered together to seek the Lord through worship and preaching and we are faithful that the Lord will encounter you too as you listen to these songs.

Jesus Culture is more than a band or a conference or an ideal. We are a movement of revivalists who are passionate about our Lord, and intentional in worshiping and serving Him throughout the nations.

Jesus Culture Live from New York:Songs from the Revival | Posted November 15, 2012
Jesus Culture is a movement that grew out of Bethel Church in northern California. What began as a yearly conference became a worship revolution that spread throughout the country, eventually making its way to England and Australia. Now in addition to yearly events that draw people from all over the world to major cities such as Chicago, Dallas, and Atlanta, Jesus Culture has released multiple albums comprised of both original worship songs and covers of classics.
 
The latest from the worship collective led by Kim Walker-Smith and Chris Quilala is Live From New York, a collection from a conference in New York featuring Martin Smith (formerly of cornerstone worship band Delirious?). This album gathers 18 highlight performances, primarily more recent songs, but also featuring some renditions of older songs, notably “Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble” in honor of Martin Smith’s Delirious? days.
 
Jesus Culture’s music is marked by a deep passion for knowing Christ and making Him known in this generation. This passion lends an element of raw honesty to their music that establishes their integrity as voices in worship arenas across the world. That quality of their music propels all the tracks on the New York session, but particularly moments such as “Our God Reigns,” “Set a Fire,” and “I Belong to You.” These songs have a musical sound massive enough to fill an arena coupled with a deep desire to know more of who God is.
 
The slower, more mellow moments on the album are equally strong and heartfelt. “Song of Solomon” is a song sung to the God who leads us through the valleys and the darkest nights, entreating Him to “hold me ‘til it’s light.” “Walk With Me” has a similar theme, led by the rich, passionate vocals of Kim Walker-Smith.
 
Throughout the collection, the energy levels are maintained without faltering--even when tempered by reverence as in “Alleluia.” Often,Chris Quilala steps away from the mic and allows the crowd to carry the melody of the moment, while at other times he directs the room to a pause for reflection and prayer, deepening the awareness of God’s presence. This allows the songs to progress organically while the set is led more by the Spirit than by pre-determined guidelines.
 
Some of the songs are deeply personal, intimate exchanges between creation and Creator, such as “I Am in Love With You” and “Pursuit.” The audience’s continued response is evidence of the way that Jesus Culture’s music has resonated deeply with this generation in their pursuit of and response to God.
 
In every track on the album, from the opening revival-seeking “Fire Never Sleeps” to the closing “I Belong to You” which seeks to take hold of our identity in light of God’s character, a deep desire to pursue God and to be immersed in and to reflect His glory swells as an ever-present undercurrent. It is that longing for God’s anointing which empowers and energizes every element of these songs.
 
Closing Thoughts
Jesus Culture continues to hold their place as an important voice in contemporary worship music with this collection. Live From New York is an experience, an album inviting the listener into the room with the band and the audience as they have a corporate conversation with God. The experience is well-crafted through a masterful mix of crowd vocals, the gifted worship leaders, and moments of reflection. Although it does not bring much fresh material to the table musically, this is an album worth listening to for those seeking passionate pursuit of God and a deeper connection to His people in the community that is the Church.

Amazing!!! | Posted November 14, 2012
As a pastor's sun, i've been listening worship music in all its genres and styles for almost since i was born. I'm 32 years old and as you can imagine i've heard a lot of stuff. But today when i heard this unique and unbelivable album, my heart just became overwhelmed by it's anoiting sound. It is truly a blessing for everyone who listens to it. I'm amazed with this project and i think it will be heard for thounsands and thousands o people around the world. No doubt, Jesus Culture and Martin Smith have done a great job.
Intense, powerfull and spiritually filled, this project has it all. In my humble opinion, this is perhaps the best worship album ever recorded.  It is amazing from the first song to the last one, and you can sense the presence of God really moving and using the lead worshipers and all the singers and musicians.

Go bless you all!

Marcos Neves
