Capitol CMG worship artist/songwriter Mack Brock releases a newly recorded acoustic EP, “Cafe Sessions,” in partnership with Worship Together. This eight-song EP was recorded in Nashville and features audio and video versions of each song. “Cafe Sessions” is available here.
Pulling back the production on these songs and leaving space for the listener to connect with Jesus in the most simplistic and pure way, Brock said hopes to bring peace and a reminder that the listener is loved in this hurting world.
"There are voices in this world that want to tell you that things are not going to be OK," Brock shares. "That you need to hustle, strive and work to get your life under control and then maybe things will be OK and God will approve of you. With each hustling step and striving shuffle, the volume of our lives goes up and up to a deafening tone until we choose to turn it down. We must chose to take our eyes off of the striving and put them onto Jesus, who promises that he is the author and the perfecter of our faith. There is no need to work to earn his approval, as it has been ours for the taking all along. This is why I partnered with Worship Together to make this record. ‘Cafe Sessions’ is a collection of songs that reconnect with the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus."
The EP features songs that were released in the past year and includes tracks from Brock’s most recent live album, “SPACE,” which is a live album recorded during the pandemic last year in Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition, the acoustic project includes the song, "Prophesy Your Promise," which he co-wrote with Jesus Culture's Bryan and Katie Torwalt and was featured on their album “Praise Before My Breakthrough.”
Brock’s greatest passion is to worship God and lead others to do the same. Whether it’s in a small chapel or a large arena, he leads in a way that connects people to an awareness of God’s presence and what God is doing in that moment. Mack has been a worship leader for more than 20 years and has been a writer on songs such as “O Come to the Altar,” “Do It Again,” “Resurrecting,” “I Am Loved” and “Even the Impossible.” Several songs of his have had a significant impact on the worldwide church, with three songs landing in the Top 25 on CCLI, and multiple others in the Top 100 CCLI songs. Brock served as the music producer and key worship leader with Elevation Worship for a decade.
