In the search for intimate but fresh worship music, it wouldn't hurt to reach back a handful of years to 2001 when former 5 Minute Walk Records (anyone remember them?) singer/songwriter Justin McRoberts released his first worship project, Untitled EP. The stripped-down acoustic venture had only been recorded in a few days and showcased the singer's wonderful and passionate vocals in a very personal, very vulnerable way that made worshipping in a quiet setting easy and intimate. The album title is beautifully simplistic -- allowing the listener to use the songs as a tool for worship in a way becomes their own. McRoberts raised the bar with the Untitled EP... and I'd love to hear him try his hand at another release like this.
