Webb's latest work was effectively the culmination of some six months of touring with his House Shows - an intimate gig in someone's living room, consisting of songs and conversations which touch on the personal as well as the wider gospel message. Webb's ability to combine his music with what is effectively some extensive preaching seems effortless and he is engaging throughout - whether singing or speaking. His acoustic arrangements are things of beauty from the openers "Faith In My Eyes" and "She Must And Shall Go Free" to his exquisite and moving tribute to his grandmother "Dance". But it is his talks that almost steal the show, they never seem out of place - particularly his introduction to "Nobody Loves Me" and later on his highly entertaining intro to "Dance". One-time Caedmon's Call member Webb is clearly a gifted performer and speaker and his 'House Show' will genuinely touch all those who hear it - live or recorded.
