Today Brian & Katie Torwalt’s 3rd album, Champions was released. Combining elegant piano, powerful vocals and minimalist by driving guitar riffs this album turns our eyes to who God is while ushering in his presence.
After listening to the album a few times, High Above and You Never Let Go have become my two favorites off of the album with You Never Let Go being one of the better songs I have heard on any release in 2016. The album is very well produced and the overall mix is very balanced falling in line with the Torwalt’s previous two albums.
There are definite Jesus Culture and Bethel influences in the songs which is no surprise seeing that musicians from both Churches played on the album. The guitar work in particular feels a lot like Bethel’s last album “Have it All” and Jesus Culture’s “Let it Echo”.
Perhaps one of my favorite characteristics of this album is that it will be easy for medium and small teams to implement in their services and congregations. If you are looking for songs to lead your congregation into reflection of who God is this is an album you have to look at.
