This is the Memphis-based singer, songwriter and worship leader's third album. A traditional blend of guitar, bass, drums and soft keyboard guide us through the pleasant title track before kicking in with the grittier "Now Is The Time", presenting a solid rock guitar/bass hook and a catchy vocal line. "Where You Are" features a huge anthemic chorus, overdriven guitars and a heavier drum beat, making it one of the most powerful songs on the disc, whereas "Father Of Lights" delivers a memorable up-beat tune with indispensably atmospheric synth. Drawing the album to a close is the tender "This Reflection", which really shows off Jeremy's knack for memorable vocal harmonies. The lyrics are poetic for the most part (however there are the odd lines that could've done with a little extra thought) and overall, this is a well above average modern worship project.

The first studio release from Jeremy Horn, worship leader at Christ the Rock Church in Memphis, Tennessee.
With an engaging blend of up-tempo, energetic pop and intimate worshipful moments, Jeremy never fails to be authentic in sharing the message of hope in the midst of broken people.
In Sound of the Broken he offers an album of worship meant to remind us that the spirit of God rests inside of broken people, and that God wants to use us to tell His story of redemption.
The answered prayer of a 16-year-old has not changed Horn’s understanding of his calling. 'I’m a local church guy who loves people and wants to disciple people and be relational. Worship is a lifestyle of obedience to the Lord. It’s saying yes to Him when He asks you to do things. Worship can mean living your life for the glory of Christ, living your life to share Him with others.'
