Ricardo Sanchez is no stranger to Christian music with a plethora of projects permeating both the contemporary pop and modern worship scenes, but believe it or not, Grand Symphony is his first ever full-length studio recording. Though his vertically-inspired songwriting remains, the singer/songwriter/guitarist explores a wider sonic palette than ever before, asserting co-production credit alongside heavy hitters Israel Houghton and Mark Townsend. The resulting landscape is a melodic blend of electronic pop, Latin rhythms and world beats over themes of praise (“All Power,” “Breathe Your Name”), surrender (“Take Over”) and starting anew (“Forgiven,” “Redeemed”). Though he’s previously mastered the art of live recordings, Sanchez proves he’s just as capable conveying bountiful beats and uplifting messages in the studio environment.
