    I’m Loving This: Greg Attwells’ Acoustic “Indie Hymnal” Album

    Greg Attwells is an artist with such a unique and distinctive sound that I had to share his songs with you, girls!

    I first discovered Attwells in July of 2012 in Sydney, Australia, where he performed live during the Hillsong Conference. My aunt bought me a CD, and since I first listened to him, I have admired Attwells’ musical abilities and his meek spirit. His reverence in his sound and the soulfulness of his voice is touching and also draws you into the spirit of worship.

    His first EP, released in January 2010, was named “Autumn For Kings.” Next came his first full album, “At Your Feet,” in 2011, and his latest,“Indie Hymnals,” was just released last month. I really love his new release and recommend you listen to some of the tracks below! Check out his official website for details on his music, live shows and his blog.

    In Attwell’s collection of hymnals, he sings, Nothing But the Blood,” “How Great Thou Art” “Take My Life and Let It Be” and more. Some of my favorite lyrics come from “Be Thou My Vision”:

    Riches I heed not nor man’s empty praise
    Thou mine inheritance now and always
    Thou and thou only first in my heart
    High King of heaven my treasure Thou are.

    Listen to the famous hymn I Need Thee Every Hour.” I love this song; in fact, it might be my favorite song on the album (originally written in 1872 by Annie Hawks).

    Here is “Be Thou My Vision,” which you may be familiar with. This beautiful hymn is another favorite of mine:

    In an interview about how and why Attwells decided to cover famous hymns–some hundreds of years old–on his latest album, he said he felt they brought depth and that in modern day worship, the songs are more general and don’t paint as much of God as they could. This reflects some of his personal struggle in songwriting and disengagement from the current Christian music scene.

    Attwells definitely has a desire for the Lord and a reverence for worship that I admire. He comes off as a true worshipper rather than an up-and-coming rock star. Attwells definitely seems to stray from desiring the spotlight and points to the one who we are to make famous, Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven.

    PI readers, do you like hymns? Which is your all-time favorite? Comment below!

    1. I really enjoy sitting and listening to him. I never even knew about Hymns. But when I find myself during worship or singing to the Lord, this is a bit similar but with the scriptures I remember. I love his voice too.
