We Recommend - Phil Wickham, 'Cannons'

California worship leader Phil Wickham is a fairly new artist who's written a respectful collection of worship songs since his self-titled debut in 2006. I've noticed that his style, however, isn't for everyone. His vocals are undoubtedly unique and are expressed in a rather child-like fashion that is innocent and verbally poetic, especially in a generation where the Church is, in many cases, being fed with watered-down worship music; something generic that is stamped as radio-friendly. In my opinion, Phil Wickham's Cannons album stands out because it is creative and interesting melodically and captures lyrics that are true and honest. Do yourself a favor and spend some time on this album. It's sure to shed a great deal of light and hope to any open listener and willing worshipper. - Ben Cardenas

Our synopsis: "Phil Wickham's newest album Cannons stands out with brilliant innocence in a generation of watered-down ideas of worship, taking creative risks that you probably won't find in many of today's popular worship music." (Recommended by JFH's Ben Cardenas)
Perfect For: Fresh Worship
Song Highlights: "Must I Wait," "The Light Will Come," "You're Beautiful," "True Love," "Home," and "Spirit Fall."
