ONE STEP LANTERN - 5 + 2
One Step Lantern feature songs by Oli Nicholls, a UK worship leader from Birmingham. The choice of band name is inspired by Psalm 119:105 whilst the album name comes from the story of the feeding of the 5000.
When you pick the album up you’d be forgiven for thinking quite a few cover versions are in store, with titles such as Amazing Love and Shine Jesus Shine. However, these are original songs with the same title and excellent tracks in their own right.
All in all I did enjoy listening to what is a good debut worship album from an as yet unsigned artist. The songs range from up tempo rock sounds to slower pieces and they are all easy to pick up and sing along to. The words have been carefully thought through and are very much Scripture-based.
Certaionly worth a listen and hopefully Oli gets himself a deal soon. For more information go to http://onesteplantern.com/
