As one of the principal worship bands at Trent Vineyard church, Trent have been writing songs together for over eight years and it shows. This five piece band is ultra professional and the music is excellent. They started playing together when their church moved towards band line ups rather than a model of worship leader with different musicians each week. From the three resulting bands, one of them decided to commit to meeting weekly to rehearse and write their own songs. That dedication and raw talent paid off when Vineyard Music released 'Hold On' followed by 'Unfailing Love' and an EP 'Radio Everything'. This was recorded/filmed in front of their Nottingham home audience on a snowy night in February 2009. The result is a 14 track album that is musically excellent from start to finish but it is more than that, it is a hugely powerful time of worship and praise. For Trent followers there are four brand new songs along with live versions of earlier favourites each with its own style to match your mood. Of special note are "Jubilee" with its paced drive and lifting feel, "Burning Bright" and "Keep Me Where The Light Is" bring a deep worship feel and total adoration of God. Ending the album in a beautifully reflective note "Perfect Sacrifice" and "Journey Home" both include some fine string arrangements that are perfect for those special moments of solitude with God. Enjoy the album then join in with the night's proceedings by watching the concert DVD, included in the package, which is also well produced and filmed.
