Breaking away from the traditional sounds of Christian music is the faith-based music group One House Worship. Composed of a varied group of writers, producers, and creative minds, the group is founded on the concept of bringing a fresh, new, and modern sound to their genre and creating a unique listening experience for their fans. Their debut EP He Always Provides was notably co-written by six-time Grammy award-winning artist, songwriter, and producer, Israel Houghton.
The band’s executive producer Touré Roberts says of the EP, “We think now is a prime opportunity to give fresh, power, innovative, and prophetic music. I want our music to teach people how to know God, to love God, and to live out their purpose and destiny“.
The EP contains only three tracks, but it truly makes the most of each, with every track clocking in at over eight minutes in length. The leading track Battle introduces us to the group with a giant, anthemic feel and remarkably soulful vocals – their sound is immediately fresh, modern, and ear-catching. The length of the tracks means the band gets plenty of time to explore all the possibilities for each – this one in particular has a great succession of peaks and valleys, bringing the listener on a near cinematic journey.
The second track takes a more subtle and softer approach at the beginning. Featuring Chandler Moore, the title track He Always Provides has all the makings of a modern ballad at its start, with its gentle synths and free-flowing melodies. As we cascade through this track, we’re treated to an exquisite and intentional build, increasing in intensity and passion with each passing line. Even in the vocal breaks later in the song, the fire and intensity in these vocalists’ performances are clearly audible.
The project closes with Good, featuring Naomi Raine. Her vocals are fervent, bright, and clear, the perfect vessel for the compelling message in this track’s lyrics. With its base of acoustic guitar, this song has a bit of a different sonic texture at the start, but like the others, it builds spectacularly to several ethereal peaks of praise and power.
While modern Christian music enthusiasts will certainly appreciate the fresh and innovative listening experience created on He Always Provides, you don’t need to be a member of any specific religion to truly enjoy the work of One House Worship. This is captivating, inspiring music that will resonate with fans of nearly any kind of modern pop, rock, or R&B/soul sound. Powerful and truly exquisite vocals, beautifully composed songs, and a flawless, modern layer of instrumentation beneath it all – this is the kind of work that puts faith-based music on the map in the 21st century.
