Through the years I’ve been blessed to connect with some truly remarkable friends and churches. One of those people is my dear friend Chris Davis who hails from the Midland/Odessa area in the Great Republic of Texas. He is on staff as a pastor at Mid-Cities Church in Midland, but he also just happens to be one of the baddest guitar players on the planet. I have no idea how I convinced him to play guitar on my record “The Rise and The Fall”…but alas Jesus loves me. He and Mid-Cities Church have been such a support and encouragement to me through the years. Their passion for worshipping Jesus and loving the people He came to save is so contagious and inspiring.
Mid-Cities Worship recently released their first worship record titled “Hands to the Sky” which so beautifully captures their passion for worship as well as their commitment to excellence.
With the quality of songwriting and production featured on this record it’s hard to believe this is their first project.
Any project Chris Davis is playing on is automatically going to have some incredible guitar lines and hooks that will be stuck in your head forever…lol! The intro to the song “Saving Name” instantly takes me to a happy place!
The vocals and overall leading of Mid-Cities worship pastor Lane Oliver are so authentic and engaging. It’s hard to explain sonically, but with each song he leads you can sense he is coming from a very honest place of desperation for God. The song “Closer” beautifully captures what I’m talking about! I’ve had that song on repeat all day!
The whole Mid-Cities Worship team shines on this record, but most importantly Jesus is honored and exalted in each lyric and melodic line.
Go to iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, or wherever you buy music and purchase “Hands to The Sky”!
I’ve included a video of “Closer” so you can enjoy and so I won’t be the only puffy-eyed joker around here crying and singing at the top of my lungs.
