The Hymns Sessions, Vol.1  (NeedHim Music)
by Jimmy Needham

FOR FANS OF: Shane and Shane, Jonny Diaz, Jason Mraz
Rating: 3 Stars

Jimmy’s vocal lends itself nicely to some well-arranged hymns, particularly in his soulful “Rock Of Ages” and the pure, beautiful, “It Is Well,” which is stripped down and perfect. However, the misstep occurs on, “Holy Holy Holy,” where the collaboration with Shane and Shane is overwhelming and full of competing vocal runs. Still, a good variety and solid effort will please fans of Needham’s unique compilation.

WE LIKE: “It Is Well”
