Music ReviewsJordan Sargent reviews music artists Maverick City Music, Cory Asbury and Jesus Culture.
Maverick City Music
On October 9, 2020, Maverick City Music released part two of their hit album, Maverick City Music: Volume 3. Part one was released in April of this year and has been a staple of my music selection this year. Needless to say, I was absolutely stoked to hear that part two was going to be released … and in the middle of a pandemic! First off, if you have never heard of Maverick City Music, do yourself a favor and stop reading this and look them up now! I will give you some time to do so.
Okay, now that you have taken my advice and looked them up and hopefully listened to some of the music, you might be able to understand why I am so obsessed. I thought part one was good, but somehow, they made part two even better. Maverick City breaks the chains of traditional worship styles and revamps the traditional hymns. Being all-inclusive, they do not follow any of the traditional “rules” of creating worship music. The lyrics in this album are so beautiful and encouraging, you can feel the Holy Spirit at work in this album. Go listen!
You might be familiar with the song, “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury, released in 2017. This year, the song was revamped, featuring Tori Kelly, to take a new spin on the popular song. This song was already a favorite and it feels timeless, but if you have not listened to the new one featuring Tori Kelly, you must—it is so good.
“Prophesy Your Promise” by Jesus Culture and Bryan & Katie Torwalt became a favorite. The lyrics remind us that God never leaves our side, even in the middle of our mess; He is always there. He never breaks His promise and it reminds us to seek Him always. If you haven’t heard it, go now!
