Nite.EV Live is set to go online in two days time and I’m pretty excited.

I’m excited because I think that in Australia we have tons and tons of Christian CDs but few genuine Church CDs. What I mean by that is that Nite.EV Live is pretty different to many other albums in the Christian marketplace at the moment. While there are heaps of great studio albums that are polished and have heaps of great tunes, there are few that leave me feeling like they have come from an authentic expression of love and gratitude to God for Jesus.

Lots of technically savvy riffs and polished synth sections, but at times it can feel like there’s little heart.

When we first came up with the idea for Nite.Ev Live we wanted to buck that trend.

We wanted to record something that wasn’t a sweetened up studio version of our songs, but rather an authentic expression of who we are, what we live for, and some of the joy we have in singing together as a church to our Saviour and to each other.
In order to do that we decided to do something ‘live’ so that all of church could be part of the process and could own the recording as their own. There is something incredible about hearing 150 18-25 year olds belt out that Jesus is the King of the World or that he is the ‘Holy, Sovereign Lord who will reign forever. Particularly in a culture where most 18-25 yr olds think that they reign and that they are King.

We also decided that we would include everyone in each of our bands rather than a small ‘crack team’ because we wanted to reflect who we really were as a church rather than what the best of the best were.

There isn’t a group of people I love singing with more than Nite.EV and I think that if you listen to this album you will understand why.
It’s God honouring. It’s warm. It’s authentic and its ours. We would love to share it with you.
