Singer, songwriter and worship leader Brandon Lake is, at his core, a collaborator. He’s written hit songs with groups like Maverick City Music, Elevation Worship and Bethel Music as well as co-writing with a host of artists including Matt Redman, Phil Wickham, Brian Johnson and Tasha Cobbs Leonard. His song with Cobbs Leonard, “This Is A Move,” went on to be nominated for a 2020 GRAMMY® Award and earned a 2019 GMA Dove Award for “Gospel Worship Recorded Song of the Year.” He also co-wrote “Graves Into Gardens,” the title track from Elevation Worship’s latest best-selling release of the same title. When Lake’s songwriting prowess rightly caught the attention of the team at Bethel Music, they offered him a strategic partnership to write, tour and release records with the Bethel Music Collective. He was eager to accept, balancing the new venture with his role as worship pastor at Seacoast Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
Lake’s debut album, House of Miracles, showcases his collaborative edge, mixing genres and musical elements to create an expertly crafted album full of moving, powerful melodies, surprising beauty, soaring vocals and lyrics that cut to the bone. Stand out tracks “Gratitude,” “Just Like Heaven,” “I Need A Ghost” and “Lost In Your Love (feat. Sarah Reeves)” are as musically compelling as they are lyrically rich. Lake’s testimonial fire burns through every song with a holy rowdiness, a shout-your-throat-raw energy that runs the full gamut of emotions. He deftly moves from fast-paced exuberance to quiet, intimate prayers telling of his all-encompassing love for God, the sole focus of Lake’s devotion.
The album’s concept and title came from a deeply personal place. “Miracles have been a huge part of my life,” Lake shares, “things you would never believe with your own eyes, things that could only be supernatural. That’s my prayer for this season. I want to be a house of miracles, want my life to house miracles. I want people to walk away having encountered miracles, in a miraculous form or a simple one.”
Title track, “House of Miracles,” is the embodiment of that sentiment, a song that leads the charge for Lake’s family mission. “God gave my wife and I a vision, a dream, to host couples from around the country in our home. We want to love on couples who are broken and burnt out in ministry and worship with them.” This other-focused spirit colors every aspect of Lake’s ministry, believing he has a responsibility to carry the presence of God wherever He goes so that people can’t help but encounter the miraculous.
Pouring his entire heart into every note, every word, House of Miracles is Lake going all in, diving deep into his conviction and faith-filled verve to produce a triumph of an album. Overwhelming gratitude and expressive, infectious joy permeate each song, moving through with a hungry determination to shake people awake and usher them into life abundant.
