As I listen to Tennessee-based Chris' third release I get flashes of Talking Heads and Kings Of Leon being melded into a cleaner, slower machine lauding the majesty of God. Melodic songs with an edge that cuts like a blade of long grass; you don't realise you've even been cut at first but then you notice the songs have made a neat slot in your psyche. Some care has been taken over the recording of 'Defender', listen to the second track "Still Saving Me", the drums ooze three dimensions. The song has that steady yet teetering-on-the-edge-of-funky feel. The big song that's already made its presence known in the world is "Your Love Never Fails" which opens this bountiful 16 track album. Chris does, from time to time, fall into the tradition of modern worship leaders: lazy right hand guitar playing, slightly slurred vocal, but for the main part he manages to stand out from the pack. Some of the songs without doubt have raging power and joy, and those that don't quite reach the mark are still pleasant.

Third release from the Nashville-based worship leader.

With a voice that has all the power of vintage Motown and a gift for writing songs that express what lies at the very heart of so many Christians, Chris McClarney is a unique talent. And, thanks to California-based Jesus Culture movement adopting Your Love Never Fails as their anthem of choice, Chrisís music has made connections worldwide.

But Chris McClarney is more than a voice, more than a songwriter, more than a guy whose songs have become part of the YouTube soundtrack. Chris McClarney is a worshipper. With the character to match the calling, Chris is intent on one thing only: a life following Jesus.

Chrisís new studio album - Defender Ė is the sound of that pursuit. Full of songs that express the truth of Godís nature, the reality of salvation and the hope that lies within us all, Defender is the sound of worship straight from the heart.

I heard DEFENDER on 91.5 victory radio and had to go to You tube for more. I listen and watched every morning and every night. I am going through some things at this time and this song help me keep my focus on Jesus. My day would be better when I would start out with the song and I love the production and would like to know where I can purchase a copy of the DVD. I told many people to go to you tube and now i need to tell them where we can buy DVD and CD. I love Chris's style and it really minister to my soul. Love it keep up the awesome worship bringing
people closer to who Jesus is and how he protects and loves us. Please send info on DVD from you tube song Defender with band. Great Stuff. God bless you all.
