High Wycombe-based gospel worship singer Sheryn has been leading worship for over 15 years. She clearly has a passion for leading people into God's presence through music and song. This, her debut album, contains her heart for worship and is certainly packed full of energy and enthusiasm as she runs through Israel Houghton's "I Am A Friend Of God" and Robin Mark's "Days Of Elijah". The band backing Sheryn are tight and play the funky and soulful grooves of a good gospel band well, however I feel that the mixing has not done them justice as some of the stronger musical elements are often lost. More worryingly, as often happens with live recordings, the vocals are often inconsistent and sometimes there are clearly sour notes. So despite the worshipful atmosphere musically it just doesn't make it.
