This album by the Seattle-based prophetic worship leader was released in the States back in 2008 and in the UK last year. Recorded live without any overdubs or studio manipulation, 'Seattle Sessions' is a raw but quite beautiful project with seven of the 14 tracks labelled as "spontaneous worship". Sean's expressive voice is well suited to this type of improvisation and his intuitive band expertly build songs such as "Learning" and "My Lover Is Mine" from delicate intros to powerful crescendos. Other highlights are the gentle and melodic "Kindling" and Feucht's passionate delivery of "Light Me On Fire" ("Burn me up till there's nothing but you"). Some may bemoan the lack of finesse or the repetitiveness of the lyrics but to do so is to miss the point. 'Seattle Sessions' an anointed album that's easy to lose yourself in.

From a city that has shifted culture around the world through sound, we gathered in Seattle as priestly minstrels to release a sound of our own. Former sounds of depression, hopelessness, and lust have flooded the airwaves and covered the city streets in darkness and gloom. As the sun’s rays break through the cloudy skies, a new sound is now being heard.
It is a redeemed sound of desperate hunger, blazing passion, and beautiful truth. He has become the melody and rhythm reverberating in the inner depths of our soul. This is what was captured. The sound is not overdubbed or manipulated, but released in the raw and pure form of vertical worship. Revel in the awe of His Presence and bathe in the ransomed sound of the city as you experience Seattle Sessions.
