Jared Anderson – Live From My Church
Artist: Jared Anderson
Label: Integrity Music
Tracks: 11 Tracks/ 57.20 minutes
Jared Anderson’s latest release Live From My Church provides just what the title advertises…a solid, live congregational­oriented worship project that features Anderson’s strong worship anthems.  The music of this project has a more organic (i.e. acoustic piano, acoustic); less electronic feel as opposed to a bevy of modern worship projects that grace the charts these days (i.e. Passion, Six Steps Records, Hillsong­not that those are deficient for the rocking & electronics…Live From My Church just features a different style). The fun and buoyant “Never Be Shaken” rocks hard, then veers head on into a sing along chorus accompanied by piano only and then focuses on just the voices of the congregation.  “Prepare the Way” is a satisfying worship ballad that sets the tone for the more mellow sounds on the album aptly suited for congregational worship.  And Christian radio listeners will enjoy the live version of the hit “Glorified.”  Anderson is a founding member of the Desperation Band that has written some memorable modern worship anthems, and Live From My Church is a great way for the worshipper to enjoy his strong writing skills on original compositions and hear interesting interpretations of recent standout songs (his version of John McMillan’s “O How He Loves” is a winner).  Live From My Church is a worthwhile complement to devotional time, and a valuable congregational tool as well.
