By Matt Maher | Essential Records
If you’ve sung “Your Grace Is Enough” in church, you have “the thinking man’s worship leader” Matt Maher to thank. As a regular person, Maher loves pondering deep theological questions. As an artist, he’s gifted at writing both upbeat church anthems and touching ballads you’d find yourself singing to God during devotional times.
One of Maher’s goals for his latest release, Alive Again, was to capture that feeling of what it’s like for a person to discover that God is pursuing him with His incredible love. He succeeded. From the bluesy Gospel-country-rock sound of “Hold Us Together” to “You Were on the Cross”— a piano ballad that will make you cry— Alive Again elevates the whole praise and worship music genre with its authentic, heartfelt lyrics and solid, diverse musicianship.
Years from now, people will still be buying this collection of songs. Fans of Coldplay, Paul Baloche and Chris Tomlin should not hesitate to add Maher’s Alive Again to their CD collection.
