Byron Cage
Memoirs of a Worshipper

Byron Cage has been deemed the "Prince Of Praise" because he continues to deliver some of Gospel's most prominent praise & worship songs. Songs such as "The Presence Of The Lord Is Here" from the Live At New Birth Cathedral project , and "I Will Bless The Lord" from his The Proclamation project are known and loved amongst Gospel music listeners.

You can expect to hear more songs on Cage's latest project that will become standards amongst choirs, praise teams, and ensembles. He teams up once again with Aaron Lindsey for production on his ninth recording titled, Memoirs Of A Worshipper on Verity Records.

Byron Cage states that Memoirs Of A Worshipper is worship music oriented (read our interview), and he starts off the project with the slow tempo'd "Gratitude", a departure from the CDopening high energy cut so prominent on previous recordings. The song is hallmarked by a great duet (with Mumen Ngenge) and builds into a beautiful and powerful sound at by its close.

The up-tempo cut, "Out Of Them All" has a catchy melody line that will quickly make it a favorite amongst musicians and praise teams. It's intricate enough to be able to appreciate its arrangement and composition, yet simple enough to catch on to.

Cage enlists the legendary Fred Hammond on a Caribbean inspired up-tempo cut titled "Victory". Hammond laces the song with his beloved vocals, and the song instructs listeners to dance. The music and lyrics make you want to do just that.

Other project highlights are "My Refuge, My Strength", "You", "Good Anyhow", "Mighty", and the first radio single, "Great & Mighty", which is gaining momentum on the Billboard Gospel songs chart. A beautiful song both lyrically and sonically, its drive is a highlight.

Memoirs Of A Worshipper features an array of sounds that will appeal to a variety of tastes. Songs such as "My Refuge, My Strength" offer a contemporary Gospel sound that will get you clapping your hands and stomping your feet. And the project wraps up with a something reminiscent of 60's popular music, "Troubles Away". It's a fun song with an inspirational message.

Cage's vocals bring energy and life to the recording. Cage regards Memoirs Of A Worshipper as a project that is more personally tied to his life when thinking about the lyrics and sound of the songs and is a great offering of music that features a more eclectic sound than we've come to expect.

Providing listeners with what they know and love from Byron Cage —substantive lyrics, great musical composition, and the message of Jesus Christ, Memoirs Of A Worshipper is worth adding to your collection.
