The difficulty with US CCM artists releasing worship projects is that there have been some rather unfortunate examples of bandwagon jumping as the modern worship market has expanded and expanded while performance-orientated CCM has undergone a bit of a decline. Music lovers though, need have no worries about Jeremy. There's no hint of marketing opportunism here, simply a true worshipper pouring out his heart to God with a set of songs, some well established classics from the pens of acclaimed worship songsmiths, some new material written or co-written by Jeremy himself. This is in fact Jeremy's second worship album and is a major improvement on 2003's 'Carried Me: The Worship Project'. With superlative production from old hand, Brown Bannister, Jeremy is able to bring a new poignant dynamic to Tim Hughes' and Nick Herbert's "Jesus Saves", while the track "The Way" with its memorable chorus "The King Of Kings, the great I Am/Jesus you are the way" is one of the best new congregational songs I've heard for years. So, if you're a fan of Jeremy's previous albums like 'Beyond Measure' and 'Speaking Louder Than Before' with their memorable hooks and surging, loud and quiet rock dynamics you will enjoy this neatly crafted set. And if you're a believer looking for music to help you engage at a deeper level with the living God 'We Cry Out' is a great aid in helping you to achieve your goal.

Grammy-nominated and RIAA multi-Gold selling artist Jeremy Camp is set to release his seventh studio project, We Cry Out - The Worship Project. Once again Camp teamed up with award-winning producer Brown Bannister to create a heartfelt, worshipful project.
Returning to his worship music roots, he co-wrote with other notable worship leaders Matt Maher, Reuben Morgan (Hillsong) and Brenton Brown.
“It is an overwhelming joy to see how the Lord has been faithful even though I am undeserving of it,” shared Camp thinking back on his career. “I just want to continue to seek Him in all that I do, and want to always remember that it’s the Lord doing the work...not me!”
