The latest folk rock album from this Californian worship leader demonstrates his heart for the Lord and his infectious enthusiasm to draw others to join him in praise and worship. Don't look for sophisticated lyrics here, what you get is very singable stuff with a clear scriptural basis. Psalm 8 has been one of my favourite Bible passages so I was delighted to find that Norman's "How Excellent Is Your Name" is up there with some of the best songs inspired by this Scripture. Norman's vocals and guitar are complemented superbly by the many talents of one tk ("teek"), in particular the electric guitar riffs and solos. Norman has come on a long way since the days when he used to write a new song every time that he learned a new chord. Apparently he has written over 1,000 songs, so with only two CDs behind him so far there is plenty more where this came from! Do visit his website at http://www.normanpatrickmorrison.com and read more about him and his ministry.
