Amanda Lindsey Cook ‘House on a Hill’ Review

House on a Hill
(Bethel Music)

Late last November, after wiping her Instagram profile clean and posting a puzzle of vague images, Bethel Music worship leader Amanda Lindsey Cook shared a picture of a handwritten letter explaining her year of absence from social media. “I had to go quiet for a while, without an announcement about going quiet… I may have some things to say in the coming year.”

Indeed, she does. Her first solo album in four years, House on a Hill is a beautiful work of worship born in the silence and a celebration of God’s unfailing, ever-present love.

You might know Cook best from her stunning vocal contribution to Bethel Music’s hit “You Make Me Brave,” but in her solo work she often delves into a more introspective space. Atmospheric synths and gentle piano melodies lay the foundation that runs through quieter moments on the title track “House on a Hill” only to build to soaring heights on tracks like “Awakening.”

From the whispered prayers of “Comforter” to the passionate declaration “I Am – Because You Are,” Cook has crafted a record that feels like stepping into the sun after a long winter night, the perfect meditative soundtrack for the first days of spring.
