Michael O’Brien - Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs

Producer: Michael O'Brien
Label: Independent

Michael O'Brien is a singer's singer. There is no denying the man can flat out sing. Perhaps best known for his seven year tenure with the popular CCM group NewSong, Michael is now a successful solo artist and is back with a new release. Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs is full of some of the most sacred and beloved songs of the church and also features a couple of new songs that Michael himself wrote.

The opening, "There is A Fountain," sets the tone for the entire project. It is one if not the best cut on the project. Michael has taken this beloved hymn and put a fresh spin on it by adding a new chorus and changed the melody, making it a beautiful-like-new worship song.

Other highlights include "All Things Bright and Beautiful" which features Michael's son, Joseph, and has some of the best instrumental moments on the entire project.

Award winning vocalist Steve Greene is featured on "For All the Saints." These two make a dynamic vocal duo and this ballad is well done and powerful! Matt Maher's popular worship song, "Lord I Need You" fits beautifully on this project and another one of Michael's sons, Mikey joins him on this. The family harmony is simply delicate and solid. Michael has added an entirely new melody to the hymn "The Solid Rock," and it is very singable and enjoyable. The same, solid message is still present. I think listeners will enjoy this one!

Michael O' Brien has done a great job with this project, and southern Gospel fans who love music of the church will enjoy this. Michael is a great communicator, and his passion for singing the songs of the church truly shine through on his latest effort. Head over to his website or iTunes and pick up a copy!
