One of the biggest influences on my worship leading and songwriting is Matt Redman. It was such an honor to catch up with him on the podcast.
I don’t know anyone who is a better lyricist with worship songs than Matt Redman. Every word has feeling. Every word makes sense. Every syllable is meticulously placed.
This is definitely a songwriting episode. We discuss his songwriting habits, collaborative writing, the new album, and discuss his upbringing.
Unfortunately I was a bit sick during this interview, so you’ll hear that as well 🙂

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Omnisphere by Spectrasonics. Omnisphere is my latest piece of software for keys and probably the only one I’ll ever need. Incredible pads and textures, innovative keyboard sounds, strings, lead synths, basses and arpeggios, it’s got it all. Literally some of the best sounding patches for keys I’ve ever heard.
We’re in the production stages of recording our next live album and Omnisphere is becoming a massive part of our sound for this project. Run it through MainStage, Logic, Pro Tools, or even Garage Band and you have keys rig for your worship sets that is better sounding and more customizable than anything you’ve ever experienced. Check it out!
