String Driven Worship| Posted September 11, 2018 What You Need To Know
A songwriter and worship leader based out of Alaska, Austin Mark Adams is here to deliver his debut worship EP.
What It Sounds Like
Driven by strings, this simple EP takes a standard approach to worship and gives it an ethereal twist. While the style and melodies evoke common trends in stripped down praise and worship, the EP is at it's strongest when it leans into the more ambient violin and fiddle-based sounds. The parts that let the guitar carry the song also fare well in creating a relaxing and atmospheric worship experience.
Praise and worship themes that have endured populate the album, including a cover of traditional favorite "Come Thou Fount." I was most personally struck by the honest meditation on the crucifixion present in "My Savior There."
