Wake Up My Soul [edit]
by Andy Kirk | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: May 11, 2010

Andy Kirk’s much anticipated debut release, “Wake Up My Soul” by 1CN Records, hits stores and radio across the nation. The title of his new record reflects Kirk’s heart as he explains, “I hope to see God’s people awake from their slumber. Awaking from the numbing effect of culture and society, to the knowledge and revelation of who Christ is and what He can do through us. I’m truly humbled to see what God has done with a small seed of talent in my life, and I am eager to share these new songs of hope and surrender with the Church.”

Andy has been a worship leader of the second largest church in America, LifeChurch.tv based out of Oklahoma City. During his tenure there, Kirk led worship seven times a week for 3,000 – 10,000 people live every weekend at their different campuses and events. When he was on the online web campus,Kirk was in front of more than 125,000 in 120 countries. In 2009, maintaining a great relationship with LifeChurch.tv and lead pastor Craig Groeschel, Kirk and his wife moved back to Nashville, TN after he signed with 1CN Records.

Andy now leads worship as an Artist-In-Residence at Hopepark Church in Nashville TN. Andy is preparing to head out on his North American Tour. Andy is looking forward to an exciting and powerful year of ministry in 2010 as he shares his heart for worship across the nation.

Love the entire CD- powerful! | Posted July 16, 2010
I recently got to see Andy Kirk and his band perform live in Nashville. I had been a fan simply from listening to his CD- but after seeing them perform live I felt the music was even more powerful and that Andy's heart for worship and songwriting was truly annointed. Blessings to Andy and his terrific band! I am singing along to my favorite song "Let Justice Ring" right now!

Andy Kirk is the second of 1CN Records' two artists to come out with an album in the span of less than a
month, (the other was Jonathan Lee, on April 20 - he co-wrote some of the songs on this album,
including the title track). Though relatively young at 22, he's already rubbed songwriting elbows with
several notables. Wake Up My Soul, his label debut, is not incredibly innovative lyrically, but it is genuine.

Everyone who knows their Bible will recognize the 1 Corinthians 13 references in "Love Is The Only
Thing", but if you're not a Christian, you could interpret it as any kind of love. The song never mentions
God by name or by inference (unless you equate God with the "love") It's got a worshippy drum punch,
though. "Beautiful" is clearly worship. A song of adoring that uses many cliches - though who hasn't?
"You Are God" highlights God's uniqueness and stands out because of the emotion Andy puts into it.
"Wake Up My Soul" cries out for a sleeping heart's awakening. The ends of the chorus lines are bent
upwards sonically where you wouldn't expect them to be. Andy's cover of "Healer" is one of the strongest
songs on this album. But then, I'm a sucker for any song with a chorus of background voices somewhere
in it.

One song that's different is "Let Justice Ring". It's a song of action asking God to give us mercy for the
broken world, as well as a comfort for those who are broken. Most songs that tackle these subjects pick
only one of the two for one song. "Remarkable" and "Strong God" are good corporate songs, partly
because of their long bridges. "Wonderful Saviour"'s "bridge", however sturdy, is a dead end; I would've
liked to hear a chorus reprise, a la "Indescribable", not just tinkle tinkle. The last track, "Falling In Love
With You" is very emotional. I bet it's awesome live.

There are no real duds on Wake Up My Soul, although if you're a "nothing new under the sun" cynic, skip
this CD. The rest of you will probably find at least one new favorite among these 10 songs.
