Item description for I Have a Hope by Tommy Walker...
Overview Tommy Walker is first and foremost a worshipper. As a worship leader at his home church for eighteen years, serving in worship with some of the most renowned church leaders in the world such as Jack Hayford, Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, Greg Laurie and Frankin Graham, and leading worship teams to Philippines, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Guatemala, Zambia, Brazil and most recently Jerusalem. Tommy is committed to taking worship to a totally fresh new place.
His new disc, I Have a Hope does just that. After six live CDs and DVDs, Tommy steps off the stage into the intamacy of the studio for the first time, with producer Ed Cash at the helm. Highlights includes the soaring anthem, 'Ha;;elujah, We Will Sing' the song of yearning, 'Do it Lord' and the tiltle track, 'I Have a Hope'.
Tommy's new CD, I Have a HOpe, features perhaps one of the most profoundly captivation worship experiences of this artist/worship leader's career and will surely inspire all listeners to become more passionate worshippers.

Getting down to the Basics Jan 11, 2009
Tommy is always a sophisticated songwriter and excellent musician. However, many of his recordings are done from a worship setting and are too full of musicians to get some of the intimacy and subtlety of his writing. I love the simplicity of this record. Tommy's lyrics pierced through to my heart. We have already learned "Do It Lord" for our church worship team and I'm sure we will do more. I think this is his best record so far!
Soulful praise and worship from a gifted veteran Apr 30, 2008
A combination of factors make this a standout among the many praise and worship CDs. For one, you have a seasoned worship leader, along the lines of a Brian Doerksen, who after releasing eight live recordings has stepped into the studio for the first time with producer Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Cademon's Call, Bebo Norman).
The combination of Walker's often soulful vocals, and music that includes rhythm and blues, gospel and a little guitar-led seventies rock, make this sound different than the average contemporary worship recording.
Walker and Cash lean toward raw and uncluttered production, which makes for a warm and relaxed organic feel. The one exception is the programmed percussion on "Holy Spirit Come," which disappears in the mix as the song goes on. Basic instruments form the foundation for well-crafted songs.
The lyrics cover a broad range of subjects. There's the charismatic picture of revival in "Do It, Lord." Jerusalem becomes a metaphor for the presence of God in "From Jerusalem." It's a cry for God to send His people into the world.
The title song is a powerful declaration of the promises of God that will serve as a lifeline to all that are needy. "I Believe, I Believe" is a simple expression of faith in Jesus that came out of a time of doubt. Simple arrangements of lyrics that are packed with Biblical truth and Holy Spirit-inspired vision keep these songs from getting bogged down.
Some tracks may not be as readily adaptable to the corporate setting, but they serve to stimulate praise. There's an anointing that will lift hearts and impart hope. This is one of the best praise and worship recordings of the year.
Well Written and Well Produced Apr 11, 2008
I love Tommy Walker and his music and worship has impacted me personally and our church. This CD is excellent and will prove a great inspiration to you. Do It Lord is a powerfully prophetic intercession, while I Have a Hope gives you just that - hope. Some great vocals and lots and lots of Tommy. For more on Tommy Walker go to www.tommmywalker.net
