Brandon Lake has contributed to various musical projects in the recent past, but now the Charleston, S.C., worship pastor takes the lead role with his debut record on the Bethel Music label titled House of Miracles. “A few years ago, God gave my wife and me a vision for our home to become a place to host couples and people in ministry who were burned out,” Lake said. “I saw us worshipping, affirming and praying for those who were hurting, and I felt that through our home God was calling us to set an atmosphere where miracles can happen in people’s lives. I want this album to host the presence of God, and I hope others can encounter his miracles through it.” This record grips listeners from the beginning with the blues-driven “I Need a Ghost,” a tune that centers on seeking the Holy Spirit. The title cut has solid drum play with the sounds of children enjoying life in the background. “Graves into Gardens” highlights sinners finding God and repeats a powerful phase: “There’s nothing better than you.” The record truly displays Lake’s writing and singing abilities. This guy is one talented musician. (Bethel Music)
