Ten Underrated Worship Acts You Should Be Listening To

At this point, you’ve probably got a pretty good idea of the modern worship landscape. Maverick City Music is dominant, along with acts like Elevation, Bethel and their various collaborators across the nation and around the world.
But under the radar, other terrific artists are doing wonderful work for the Church, blending creative verve with a desire to honor God. The result is some music that absolutely warrants a place on your worship mix. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to say you were a fan before they got big.

Anna Golden

We predict very big things for Anna Golden, the Tasha Cobbs Leonard protégé who has already proven her skills as both a singer and a writer.

 

Mark and Sarah Tillman

This North Carolina couple takes the acoustic folk sound that’s found so much purchase in their neck of the words and bends it upwards, creative lovely, delicate modern hymns.

Isabel Davis

This Texas native found her sound in New Orleans, where she serves at the City of Love as she seeks to “create space for people to lean into God’s presence,” according to her bio.

For All Seasons

California-based worship act For All Seasons remixes the worship formula a little, lacing elements of dance pop and EDM into the old pop-rock format for a sound that can get your hands and your heart rate up.

Bri Babineaux

Babineaux hit the viral jackpot when a friend posted a video of her singing “Make Me Over” by Tonex. Her online fame led to a record deal which she’s used to create some excellent, uplifting hits that utilize her jazz sensibilities to terrific effect.

Here Be Lions

In the old days, cartographers would mark the unknown areas of maps with a warning: “Here be lions.” This Nashville worship outfit has reinterpreted that warning as a call to boldness, and you can hear it in every chord.

Geoffrey Golden

After Cleveland, Ohio native Geoffrey Golden won the BET’s Sunday Best Gospel singing competition, he put his talent and newfound clout to good use, recording several excellent Gospel albums including this year’s terrific single “He Laid His Hands.”

His talent and expertise are undeniable, but it’s the love for God that really comes through.
