Overview Hailing from Minneapolis, Jason Upton started his musical career by singing in churches around the country when he was just 15. After completing the Masters of Divinity program at Regent University with his wife, the two began to take worship music even more seriously and turned their home into a regular place of worship. This committment to worship is further expressed in his continued worship conference performances all around the country.
Jason?s voice is oozing with passion. He has an excellent tenor vocal range, able to bring his voice down to a gentle whisper in one song and cry out in joy or pain in the next song. These moments of exuberance are particularly evident in the extended improvisational passages. There are songs on Faith where one might wonder if Jason collapses from exhaustion at the end of them! Jason is also a talented piano player, and he?s additionally blessed with a superb backing band consisting of guitars, bass, drums, and violin.

Wow!!!!!!!! That's all I can say. If your looking for something to usher you into the presence, this is it. The testimony is in catching my 19 year old son listening in the middle of the night and singing the songs in the shower, and he dosen't even know if he believes in God!! Truly amazing!
Simply Incredible Mar 12, 2007
I am not ashamed to say that this is the most moving worship CD that I own. About five or six years ago I was won this in a raffle of sorts and had no clue who this Jason Upton guy was. After listening to this CD a few times through I fell in love with it. Since then it has blessed my life many times over. I can honestly say there is not one CD that I own that has blessed me more. Jason has a gift for leading you into the presence of God and speaking into your life at the same time.
The music on this CD is also incredible. Jason and his band do a great job. The violin player on this CD is great. The whole band is tight and can flow well together. There is a kind of Dave Matthews Band meets Keith Green quality to the whole thing. I say Dave Matthews Band because of their tendency to be spontaneous and jam out and also because even though there is an electric guitar it is not really driven by blairing guiatars. Also, Jason has an incredible voice that just oozes passion and has been compared to Keith Green. Jason is a good pianist as well. However he does not try to hog the spotlight but often gives way to his band and lets them take the lead.
So over all I must say that this is a great CD from a very talented and anioted worship leader. It will be well worth the purchase. I recently had to re-purchase the CD because I wore out the first one, and I am keeping the first one. So if you are looking for a CD that can take you into the presence of God and just get lost there then look no further than this one.

Jason Upton helps bring the Glory down. Jan 22, 2007
If you are looking for a worship cd that will help you flow in the spirit with God, You've found it. Jason Upton has a call on his life for worship. You can feel it as soon as you listen to the music. It brings you to a deeper level of worship if you let it.
There are two versions of this album. One is a studio cut and the other is live. This album was recorded live. All of the songs are great. My personal favorite is track number three. It is a song that came about during a concert. The song was not a written song. It came from the Holy Spirit while they were playing one night at a concert. It is a beautiful song. on one of the songs they have the voice of what they believe to be an angel singing. It is awesome. All of the songs on this album are good. I have nothing negative to say about this album at all. I am very well pleased by this purchase.

I truly love this cd. Theres probably not one bad song on this cd. My least favorite is probably poverty, but yet i still like that song! Trust me, Jason Upton is so annointed with God, and I trust that God will bless you through this cd, because it has been such a blessing in my life. May God bless all of you
