New Music From Charlie Hall

Six Step Records, born out of the Passion worship movement in the late 90’s, has four artists on its label. But these four put out some of the most powerful worship music there is. When you mix their heart for worship and their talent, you get a combination that is a force to be reckoned with. Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band and Charlie Hall are the face of modern worship music.

The least known of these four is Charlie Hall. Even his iTunes page is less glamorous than the other three. His music is somewhat different than the others, more edgy. It is more from the soul, from inside. On his music he says he desires to be:

“honed into God, where I’m not part of a culture where I’m trying to make the people around me think, ‘Hey, that’s a good Christian.’ I’m just trying to pursue God and not pursue being accepted into a club…I’m more honed into my pursuit of God in Christ and how he’s forming me and changing and helping me love him and know him.” (from his wikipedia page)

In an interview with Matt Conner from, Charlie Hall talks about his style of music:

I’ve just never been satisfied with singing something normal, or maybe I should say singing it in a normal way. I’ve always wanted to find words and turns that feel different as well as making normal words really come to life. So I just dig for that stuff, which is why I think it takes me longer to create a record. I want life to happen and I’m trying to process it with God and then really say some strong things in terms of prayer and life and adoration back to Him that would really be an authentic experience and have that be authentic for those that hear it as well.

Read these lyrics from the last verse and chorus of his song, Hookers and Robbers:

Who could accept all your pounding and screaming
Your raging, your freaking, cussing, and beating
All while He holds you and always forgiving
This is the story of love and of living
So wipe off your tears and laugh just a little
Come break this Bread, celebrate the Forgiver
Raise up a glass, a time to remember
Come break this Bread, celebrate the Forgiver

Come as you are, as you are, as you are.
Come as you are, as you are, as you are.

There are thousands of gifted and anointed worship leaders out there, some are famous and some aren’t, but Charlie Hall is a voice that is over-flowing with compassion and love that can only come from our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Check out his newest album, Bright Sadness.

    Check out Paul Wilbur’s song Worship, from his album The Watchman. I start to feel His presence as soon as the music starts. I usually can’t make it through the song without crying.

    Did you mean “Worthy”? A song titled Worship isn’t on there. I had a couple from the cd already. I downloaded the rest and will listen to them. Thanks for the suggestion
