The Glorious Unseen
I am always on the lookout for fresh worship music and emerging artists and today I would like to stoplight one of my favourite worship bands – The Glorious Unseen.
Who Is ‘The Glorious Unseen’?
The Glorious Unseen began with a Sunday night Bible study… Disillusioned by the local church scene, a few former youth leaders and friends gathered on a spring Sunday night outside Nashville, TN. What took place ignited their hearts together… They came together to express their desire for God. They came together because they desired community. Their style of ministry was different… Not ever knowing what was going to happen, they continued to meet every Sunday night to pursue God – and to have Him pursue them. The worship that emerged from this group was simple, introspective, and vulnerable. When worship leader Ben Crist wrote his first song – he didn’t consider it a worship song… “I just wrote this cool song, but never thought it would be something we would play in worship. I thought maybe I’d have a side project where I’d play some of my own songs from time to time.” But when a few friends persuaded him to use the song during a worship set – the people were touched, and as he wrote more and more songs, the group gathered around them. The songs became their soundtrack. They became songs that brought them closer to God, and God closer to them… (From The Glourius Unseen Myspace)
The Glorious Unseen – Tonight The Stars Speak
In 2006 Ben landed a recording contract with Tooth and Nail records after his 5song worship cd caught their attention. He started recording, with his debut album being released in 2007 titled ‘Tonight the Stars Speak
This recording is one of the rawest worship albums that I have ever listened too, which is quite refreshing. I love how Ben doesn’t shy away from being real – instead he has just written what was on his heart.
I am a massive fan of great lyrics. I won’t go as far as saying lyrics are more important than music, because they both play such important roles in a worship song, but I love lyrics that a real, that I can grasp and make my own – and Ben does this with this able. Let me share some of my favourite sections from a few of his songs. More >
