Jonny Shepherd has a good track record leading worship in Rugby with his wife Cheryl. These are tracks birthed in real life, opening with "Praise You For The Blood". This starts as a simple re-working of "It Is Well With My Soul" and an understated acoustic chord progression that builds into a reprise punctuated by a high energy drum and percussion-led closing sequence. Next up is "My Reason" - "I was made to worship, I was born to praise you," intones Shepherd; while David Skoppek's light keys contrast an initial emphatic percussion that then modulates with a flickering precision. Third song is "Crown Of Praise" accompanied by more tight percussion and simple keys while "When We See Him" is an instrumental, featuring a long synth opening with dramatic drum beat building into a film score-like blend. Look out for more CDs from Jonny this year.
