What You Need to Know:
Reach City Worship is a movement based out of Tampa, Florida. The name "Reach City" reflects their desire to reach out to the world and share the love and message of Jesus, reaching beyond generational and denominational barriers. In following their calling to share the hope found in our savior, they have led worship at churches and conferences across the nation, leading alongside artists like Plantetshakers, Colton Dixon, Anthem Lights, and Sidewalk Prophets. Nothing Else Matters was recorded live at the Reach Conference in Tampa, FL.
What It Sounds Like:
This album takes you from wherever you are and puts you in the middle of the conference, right to the best seat in the house. They captured the atmosphere of worship and it speaks just as loud as the lyrics. The instrumentation behind the vocals creates a powerful vehicle for the message of the songs to be delivered. The vocals are clear and polished, while still portraying the passion behind the worship.
The song "Nothing Else Matters" is based on the story of the woman who washed Jesus's feet, found in Luke 7. The story tells of a sinful/immoral woman who found out Jesus was eating at a Pharisee's house. She brought a jar of expensive perfume and knelt behind Jesus, weeping. She washed his feet with her tears, dried them with her hair, and rubbed perfume into them. At that moment, nothing else mattered but the presence and forgiveness of Jesus. This is manifested in the lyrics of the chorus: So I will sit at your feet and rest in your peace. Here's where I find you're all that I need and I'll be still and know that you're in control, God. I pour out my love until nothing else matters.
Best Song on the Record:
"Never Leave Me" is it for me on this record. This song had me moving and singing every time the chorus came around: "Where you are is where I want to be. I come alive in your freedom. I am yours, you are my victory. With every breath, I'm singing."
For Fans Of:

This album transports you to the middle of a worship conference from the moment you hit play. You have no other choice but to raise your hand in worship and worship with the band.
