Leeland Mooring on the Act of Singing

If you feel that modern worship music is built on a shaky foundation of emotion rather than a solid one of biblical truth, you haven't listened to Leeland Mooring talk about worship. Knowing he began his music career at a such a young age, you'd be forgiven for expecting an immature philosophy, but you would be absolutely wrong. What started as a simple question about how his view of worship has changed over the course of his 16 year career, turned into a thesis about the Church and the spiritual act of singing to our Father. These songs are built on the Gospel and it's incredibly refreshing. My favorite interviews are the ones where I just get to listen. Jason and Daniel discuss selling off gear and getting your worship team to buy in.

Sean Curran on Vulnerability

“There’s something about vulnerability that unlocks us as humans and makes us more like Jesus.” We weren’t sure what to expect from Sean Curran. Kristian Stanfill described him as a “Wild Stallion” and when I asked him what makes him so wild he responded “I guess I just scream a little more.” What unfolded next was one of my favorite discussions yet. A simple question about his worship leading history took up nearly the entire interview. Not because he is so full of himself, but because he isn’t. We discussed an intense season of his life that felt “kissed by God” and what it was like for that season to end. We talked about burning bright and fast and what it means to follow Christ and lead worship for the long haul. We discussed praying through song and what it’s like to take that gift out of the secret place and share it with the body of Christ.
