Allen hails from Toronto, Canada and has been has been equipping worshippers for over a decade, conducting worship seminars throughout North America and internationally. 'We Won't Stop' is his second release which consists of five radio-friendly worship songs that will appeal to followers of Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman. The opener "You Are With Us" begins with a keyboard line right out of the Delirious? songbook. Froese recounted on Instagram that the song was inspired by Christ's words in John 16:33. He wrote the song in what he described as "in the middle of a storm determined to press on and encourage others to hold on to hope" and is a powerful reminder that the Saviour is always with us. The title track comes next and is slightly more up-tempo and has something of a Hillsong United flavour; "I Need You" is a plea for healing and intersession; while "Search Me" taps into the essence of Bernadette Farrell's "O God, you search me and you know me" in a 21st century way. All in all, Spirit-filled, uplifting music.
