Jon Bauer is one of Canada's most prominent worship leaders, having released four albums. 'Forevermore' is Jon's first release in the UK. The album starts with punchy guitar riffs on "Our God" followed by the airplay-friendly "Light Of Another World", which in turn is followed by the more rocking anthemic chords of "Come And Save Us". The album continues to diversify and delight. Michael W Smith's influence can be heard in "A Prayer Away", but the highlight of this album is the title track, which builds wonderfully into a spirit of proclamation and worship and is strong enough to impact the world Church if it gets the exposure. Here, then, is an album which though stylistically similar to the work of Hughes or Tomlin and with strong production from Rusty Varenkamp could well take Jon to the next level of popularity.
