A Gumbo of Sounds | Posted April 04, 2018

What You Need to Know: 
Shine on Us is one of those "gumbo" albums that incorporates a variety of styles intentionally, but not clumsily. Nashville Life Church is a diverse congregation pastored by Alvin Love Jr. and his wife CeCe Winans-Love, so they wanted to incorporate the styles that represent the people in the church with the foundation being worship to Christ. Dwan Hill serves as the music producer of the album, with Rachel Hale, Hill, Alvin Love III and CeCe serving as the worship leaders. 

What it Sounds Like:
This is a stew of fun-filled music and lyrics of praise and worship. From upbeat R&B ("All Power," "My God") to the jumpy youthful ("Looking Up featuring Cece") to power ballad ("I'm Persuaded"), variety is an understatement. However, they have a signature sound that distinguishes them from others because it sounds like an actual service without doing too much "cleaning up" to the vocals.

Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights: 
The title track has a great line that stands out: "Thank you for the change You've started / New heart for the brokenhearted." 

Best Song on the Record: 
"My God" is my favorite, and featuring Byron "Mr. Talkbox" Chambers was the right addition. The song soars to the next level once he comes in! 

For Fans Of: 
Deitrick Haddon and Hill City Worship Camp, Hillsong Young & Free, Covenant Worship, CeCe Winans

Final Word: 
This is an enjoyable and mostly upbeat album from Nashville Life Music. I'll be watching for Shine on Us Pt. 2, wondering if it will be more ballad heavy.
