What You Need To Know:
Former lead singer of Desperation Band and New Life Church Worship Pastor Jon Egan releases a solo-project, Unveil, on Integrity Music.
What It Sounds Like:
There's nothing like a live worship experience and Unveil captures the power of these moments perfectly. Sonically, this album creates the feel of passionate corporate worship from top to bottom, because that's exactly what it is. It offers us the rawness of live worship and a congregation singing praise together. Each song is played by a live band throughout the album, with drums that know exactly when to be subtle or when to build to elevate a moment ("The Name We're Running To," "What You Said") and several hauntingly beautiful piano melodies ("Pure Exaltation," "Unveil"). "This Changes Everything" would make a great addition to Easter Sunday worship sets.
With many of these songs born out of Jon's battles with anxiety and depression, this album highlights the power of worship to help us fight spiritual battles, to turn our hearts to God when life is overwhelming, and to encourage and comfort our hearts with God's presence through hard times.
Best Song On The Record
"Be Strong" wins best song on the record. It's both a vulnerable cry to God to rescue you from hardship and give you victory, as well as a moment of speaking encouragement over your own soul that God will break through into your dark situations.
For Fans Of:
Passion, Here Be Lions, Desperation Band
Jon Egan has a gift for crafting songs for God's people to sing together - anthems of faith and praise. With Unveil he delivers, once again, a collection of songs that will lead you into passionate, powerful moments of connection with God.
