[Review] You Reign by Upward Music


Our good friends at Upward Church have released this great worship EP, titled You Reign.

A great modern worship sound drives this EP. A nice guitar-driven sound dominates these arrangements.

Upward Music is committed to creating a musical expression of worship that is centered on our mission to write and produce songs that empowers the Church and individuals towards the reality that we are called to tell the story of God. At all of our Upward Church Campuses, we identify ourselves as people who have found hope, salvation, joy, forgiveness and a future in Jesus Christ. Our songs are the overflow of our hearts and a reflection of life in Jesus.

Here And Now is a great original by Kristian Velasco. It’s a high energy, guitar-driven song of praise.

Upward’s version of Bethel’s Anchor is a great song about the unfailing unchanging faithfulness of God. It features the beautiful lead vocals of Ashley Navarro. It’s a great song for congregations to use in declaring the steadfast hope that we have in Christ.

You Reign is a wonderful anthem of worship, that utilizes some nice piano work. This song will be easily adapted to congregational singing. I love songs that declare the name of Jesus, so this is a great one that lifts the Name above all Names!

Gracious Tempest (Hillsong Y&F), To Be Like You (Hillsong), and Victory (Hillsong) are also great songs that are covered beautifully on You Reign.
