Jake Hamilton "Freedom Calling"

Just added to Worship and Glory Radio this week are Looking for One and It's a Garden from the new Jake Hamilton album "Freedom Calling".


Album review: For those of you familiar with the Jesus Culture movement, you probably already know Jake Hamilton. For those of you who are not, let me introduce you. Jake is an intense worshiper and preacher "whose passion is to raise up a generation to sing songs of revival in the nations of the earth". His music is passionately hard, raw, and emotive- some of it possibly to a fault if you're out of his target audience. But he's not trying to reach 40 year old housewives. If you are looking for a modern day worship rocker in the vein of Kutless's earlier work, look no further. Winners on this album include "It's a Garden", "Looking for One", and a unique interpretation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
