The Fire is the debut solo worship album from Samuel Lane. Recorded at CatBeach Studio in LA with Emmy award-winning producer Bobby Hartry (best known for his work with Jeremy Riddle) and some of the best musicians in the music industry (including John Mayer’s drummer Aaron Sterling), it also features Samuel’s brother-in-law and sister Darren and Jessie Clarke, writers of ‘I Love Your Presence’ and ‘Your Love Endures’.
The Fire is the product of Samuel’s life as a worship leader and songwriter serving and growing in the local church (St.Albans Vineyard). It draws deeply from his wealth of experience and involvement in the worship of the Vineyard movement in the UK.
The songs are full of passion, intimacy and honesty, and the record communicates an authentic and heartfelt journey of faith in the presence of God. The Fire not only brings great new songs to the church, but it also calls out to the listener to engage with God; to ‘meet their Maker’. There is nothing more amazing, nothing more life-changing than being drawn into the presence of God, and The Fire will do just this.
"The Fire is an incredible album coming from the UK recording company and from an amazing artist Samuel Lane. His voice is one of those voices you don’t quickly forget. The album has simplistic acoustic instrumentation, authentic and raw arrangements. It is a particularly artistic album and definitely not your average contemporary christian music. The Fire that will stir the passion for worship in a lot of people and it will also leave them wanting a better relationship with God and a better understanding of God" TheUndergroundSite.com
