Rev Joey Nicholson delivers acoustic driven worship music with poppy, catchy songs and a style reminiscent of another independent worship leader, Roger Hodges. Vocally the best way to describe Nicholson's voice is to bring to mind Martyn Joseph and then imagine him leading worship! Joey pens his own songs and creating worship that is intimate, passionate and courageous, 'I Know Your Will' has some lovely moments. "Amen, Hallelujah" is a beautiful ballad and the title track is a gorgeous worship song with plenty of vibey organ. One element that really adds to the overall feel of the album is the sax playing of the anointed Clint Baughman whose contributions litter the album and create real emotion. Overall, a worship album that avoids hype and sugar sweetness and instead concentrates on leading the listener closer to Jesus. Could you want more than that?
