“Our hope is that listeners will resonate with the music and worship leaders will find the songs helpful for their congregations. There are a growing number of churches that place a high priority to have multiple styles of worship represented on Sunday morning. This project is a resource to help serve worship leaders and their congregations,” says Phillip Edwards, founder of “We hope that congregations who haven’t encountered some of these top songs on will discover them in a fresh new way.”

Grammy award-winning Producer Chris Baker (The Potter’s House of North Dallas)has been a part of The Recording Collective since its start in 2016 as The Collective’s producer and says the project fills a great need in the local church.

“Being a worship pastor in a local church, I see a huge need for material that can occupy both spaces — contemporary and gospel. I think the EP will supply something that has been needed for quite some time and it’s an answer to prayer for a lot of local pastors and worship pastors. For pastors wondering how their team can do music that not only speaks to one demo or one ethnicity, I think this project is the
answer,” Chris shares. “At the core of the project is to always be authentic. Diversity is so important in the worship genre. It has to be a priority and the heart of every pastor and the local church. It’s what God is looking for — it’s what he died for.”
