After founding the praise events project Heartsong in 2011, this year sees the release of Nigerian-born and Aberdeen-based worship leader Eloho Efemuai's debut album which features 10 tracks that seek to raise high the name of Jesus at every turn. Keen to keep things as upbeat and stirring as possible, the likes of the opener "Halleluyah" and the faster-paced "Great And Mighty" showcase not only Eloho's strong singing voice but also an ability to passionately declare God's glory through the occasional enthusiastically-delivered spoken section and hint at her obvious skills as a worship leader. Whilst the inclusion of electronic drums, fuzzy lead guitars and synth washes make for a slightly dated sound, more considered numbers such as the title track and the soulful "Only You" - alongside a gratifying gospel-tinged take on the hymn "How Great Thou Art" - work well alongside the more energetic tracks to offer up an enjoyable first release from this promising artist.
