London's Ekklesia are the four piece vocal group who've been part of the British gospel scene since 2001. This debut full length album has been long awaited and boy was it worth the wait. This album is a mixture of jams with an urban gospel feel "Get To Know You", a bit of a Caribbean flavour "Call Him", a drop of pop/rock on "Rain" and the soulful, mellow grooves of "Looking For Love". The album features exquisite vocals from the group, but the unmistakable voice of Janine Dyer (Raymond & Co) leads on "Surrender". Producers such as Ian Pitter, Adrian 'Kenz' McKenzie and Wes 'ER' Nate bring these songs alive and it is fair to say that 'Rain' demonstrates that grassroots gospel is thriving in good ol' Blighty.
