Following on from their January 2016 'Let It Echo' epic the renowned revivalists offer stripped down version of seven of the songs featured on that set recorded live at The Underground Lounge in Sacramento, California. With the team's best known worship leaders Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala and Bryan & Katie Torwalt handling the vocals these are powerful, powerful renditions of stirring anthems and from the opening "Never Gonna Stop Singing" featuring Walker-Smith to the closing "Set Me Ablaze" with Katie Torwalt these are spine-tingling songs with the intimacy that the acoustic versions communicate that they're just as powerful as the expansive full band arrangements.
