It Is Well
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Brandon Ebel Company (BEC)
In a genre crowded with praise albums, the rock act Kutless have striven to create a worship project that's just a little different. The band retreated to a hazelnut farm south of Portland, Ore., where, surrounded by nature, they were able to capture the peaceful spirit that permeated the sessions. The result is a mix of traditional and modern that melds the decades seamlessly (look for covers of old hymns, Keith Green classics and more recent tracks like "Hungry" and "God of Wonders"). The first disc to earn them a co-production credit, It Is Well may even get the faithless to believe.
