An Atmosphere of Living Water | Posted September 21, 2014
Justin Jarvis is a Florida-based worship leader previously known for his work with Jesus Culture, although he is a dedicated artist in his own right who has released songs resulting from his service in his local Fort Lauderdale church. His latest project is Atmospheres Live, a 10 song collection bringing listeners into the heart of one of his worship sets.

The musical sound of this collection will be instantly reminiscent of projects like Bethel's Tides or United's Zion, with a semi-ethereal, sweeping feel tempered by acoustic and subtle electronic elements. Opener "Take Heart" exemplifies this with its soaring chorus and upbeat sound as it expresses the encouragement we find in His constancy. "Be My Love" has a similar sound, rooted by a clean, upbeat guitar riff.

Some of the songs are softer, atmospheric and calm, providing welcome slow moments in the album's pacing. Title track "Atmospheres" is one such moment, its tender sound echoing the poignant lyrics "We are shifting atmospheres with the heart of the One we love." "Heaven's Light" is more mellow as well, which allows Jarvis's forceful, full-bodied voice to really stand and shine on its own.

Lyrically, the themes are the timeless declarations of the church, exploring the love story of Christ and His bride in "Taste," voicing the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in stand-out track "Rivers (Turn the Tide)." There is one spontaneous worship track found here in "Have Your Way," a moment which feels deeply genuine as it works from the earnest plea "have Your way oh God."

Closing Thoughts:
This is a collection of beautiful, heartfelt moments with Jesus. The live format suits this collection of songs well as it invites us to participate, although more presence of the crowd's vocals and response could have made it even more effective. Although this is not a groundbreaking project musically, Justin Jarvis's powerful voice is the auditory strongpoint of the project, and it's a voice that more worship projects would do well to invite to join them. Overall, this project holds strong appeal for fans of Jesus Culture, Bethel, or Hillsong Worship.
