Ep 67 - Noel Robinson Interview
In light of recent events, and the global Black Lives Matter movement, we wanted to pause and take stock of any issues within our own world of worship songwriting. So we were delighted when Noel Robinson - songwriter, worship leader and all round good guy - offered to come on the show and share some of his own perspectives and experience. The entire episode is dedicated to the conversation between Sam and Noel.

I’ve been wanting a podcast covering things like this for years. Plenty of Christian podcasts, but for someone in the worship/music field, to see one dissecting popular songs; that’s what I’ve been dying for. Just happened upon it when looking up graham Kendrick. Awesome!
