Passionate, thoughtful, emotional, reflective - all words that come to mind when you listen to Cambridgeshire-based Matt McChlery's debut album. In a time where there is much new worship music being written by well known, competent Christian artists, Matt's songs are up there with the best of them. The beauty of this album is its simplicity. The message in all of his songs is reflected upon God. Songs entitled "Cling To You", "Wait Upon You" and "Never Ending Love" show his passion for God and more importantly God's passion for us. The title track is supported by lead guitar that does just that - it flies with a haunting airiness, together with Matt and his backing vocalist Nancy Swayer. If I had anything negative to say it would be why hasn't Matt been discovered sooner? In a cut-throat music world, Matt McChlery is up there with the best of them, flying with a fine debut.
