With his latest release from 1CNrecords, Let Them Hear, Jonathan Lee offers up a worship album that is refreshing and honest. No stranger to the worship scene, Jonathan has been leading worship for over ten years, and has honed his craft as a songwriter, collaborating with various artists including Jeff Deyo, with whom he has co-written many songs, including “Jesus I Surrender” and “Unveil”.
While at times reminiscent of such artists as Hillsong United, Fee and Leeland, Jonathan succeeds in crafting a sound that is truly his own. With a unique and clever blend of guitars and keys, Jonathan brings a mature and inventive sound to each track on this album. Lyrically this album shines, with expressions of worship that range from corporate declarations of praise to raw and very personal confessions of a need for communion with the Almighty.
One track from the album, “Beautiful King” has been featured in the May issue of Worship Leader Magazine’s Song DISCovery. This upbeat song of praise is already being used in churches across the nation and around the world to engage congregations in worship.
Other highlights of the album include the soaring anthem “Redeemed”, the intimate and passionate plea of “Oh My Soul” to which Sparrow Recording Artist Sarah Reeves lends her graceful vocals, and the hauntingly beautiful “Release”, with its simple message of the mercy and grace that we find at the cross of Christ.
