MP3 Teddy Chadwick and the Rising - For An Audience of One
Pop/rock/praise/worship originals, like Keith Green and Todd Bentley lay hands on the Violent Femmes and the Beatles and they all get baptized and hop on a bus to the studio--on the way the bus swerves to avoid a squirrel...

POP: with Live-band Production, ROCK: Acoustic
"I just don''t think the world has enough praise and worship songs yet."
As worship leader for Crossroads Church in Hamburg NJ since 2000, Teddy Chadwick writes and records original worship and praise tunes that are blessing the greater church worldwide and reaching the lost.
This is Praise and Worship music in styles ranging from beatlesque pop of "Enter Into His Gates (Psalm 100)" to the dreamy Messianic worship in "Holy Breath" to the funk rock anthem of "Gloria". "Song of the Lamb (You Alone)" is big and majestic, while "Do You See That Cloud" is is very bouncy and peppy, while carrying a powerful prophetic message of revival.
This album features the Quinones Brothers rhythm section - P.K.''s Jonathan on bass and Ivan on drums. Also: Richard Lee on drums, Teddy Chadwick''s uncle Brent on keys, talented guitarist/vocalist Christopher Hodjson beaming in tracks from Las Vegas, Arthur Sibblies on vocals, and more.

In-depth Song Descriptions:
1. Song of the Lamb (You Alone)
The Revelation 15:3-4 epic worship anthem. Catchy hook, very singable for congregations, very worshipful. Recorded with live acoustic piano, electric guitars, live mic''ed drums, and an impromptu worship choir comprised of the attendees of The Rising worship event of Feb. 2003.
A guitar-driven groove rock praise anthem, with lyrics from the Book of Luke. In the common phrase "Peace on earth, good will toward men" the "peace" is actually the peace between God and man - created by Jesus, Creator-in-the-flesh, coming to earth as our Savior. So in this chorus the passage is rendered "Peace between God and man is His (God''s) delight/satisfaction", coming from a close look at the Greek.
3. Yeah, You Are Awesome
This praise song soars from introspective to exuberant. Lots of electric guitar, live bass and drums tracks. You''ll end up agreeing, "Yeah JESUS You are awesome"
4. Holy Breath
The Hebrew for Holy Spirit is "Ruach Ha''Kodesh" which could be translated "Holy Breath" or "Breath that is Holy." This is a gentle song, inviting the Holy Spirit, the Ruach Ha''Kodesh to be welcome in our worship. Listen for the sound of the shofar in this track.
5. Enter Into His Gates (Psalm 100)
An uptempo exhortation song. Prompting worshippers to leave our troubles outside, clear our minds and our beings of everything else, focusing on God completely when we enter the gates of the tabernacle to praise and worship. This Psalm exhorts us to leave our troubles outside the gates, and enter with thanksgiving.
6. Do You See That Cloud
This song is prophetic. I Kings 18:44 recounts the story - the lesson is whether we''re praying for rain, or the "latter rain" of the Holy Spirit''s outpouring, we need to get ready for God''s answer because when His blessing starts flowing, it flows!
High-energy praise and heartfelt worship originals in a modern guitar style. Published by Guaranteed-Holy-Spirit-Filled Music (G.H.S.F. Music/ASCAP).
Currently, this CD is a Special Memorial Version of the May 2003 24-Hour worship meeting. One of the things we do is put together 24-hour praise and worship Jesus celebrations featuring 16 or 20 worship bands coming together to lead worship one after the other hour-by hour. It''s intense! Look for new LIVE recordings coming up. In the meantime, there''s only 2 copies left of this special Memorial Edition of this CD. The next version has the same songs but in different order, with a couple of barely noticeable changes in the artwork - making the current run a collector''s edition.
