Child of Happiness – Worship Straight From The Heart
This album contains 10 new and fresh songs from Western praise and worship style in pop-rock guitars performance. The inspiration for the album stems from a deep relationship and love of God with a man (a Dad and his child). The purpose of this album is to make simple lyrical and melodic songs in Polish to churches and youth meetings. Everyone is being able to sing these songs giving glory and honor to Jesus. The album contains spatially arranged electric and acoustic guitars. Other “tastes” are beautiful sounds of cello or harmonica.
Here will hear delicate compositions of worship and more “sharper” rock songs of praise. Additionally, each purchase of the CD will be supporting financially trusted Christian foundations and associations that help needy children in Poland, Zambia, India and the Philippines.
A debut album, entitled “Strength” is reggae from the typical Jamaican dub beats and modern roots. There are also elements of funk and soul. Naaman is including three vocalists, which greatly extend the number of possible arrangements. Thirteen songs collected on the album is a spatial, winged with soul vocals and cheerful sounds. The band has done an excellent job for the whole composition, pulsating bass, keyboards cooperating with each guitar and drums move most optimistic parts of the soul. The music is complemented by thoughtful lyrics, which speak of human actions – emotions.
Another strong accent of “Strength” is roots song “His Love” with its distinctive and characteristic male vocal.
