William McDowell

With access to well known producers in the Christian music industry, Pastor William McDowell is bypassing the industry standard and relying on the Holy Spirit to create his new album.

The 39-year-old gospel music recording artist known for songs like “I Give Myself Away,” crafted much of the music on his latest album, Sounds of Revival, while worshiping on multiple stages around the world.

“We did a lot of what I call worship exploration. We explore what I call pregnant moments, which means moments in a service where it’s clear that God is doing something in the room,” McDowell told The Christian Post. “If we have a piece of something we always recognize that every piece of something is part of a greater whole, so we explore those moments to find out what the greater statement is. We explore a lot of moments on stages across the world and those songs were birthed in those moments.”

All of the songs on Sounds of Revival are special to McDowell, but tracks like “I Don’t Mind Waiting” and “Send the Rain” serve as evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence when recording his latest album live at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
