Washington, D.C. worship leader Keith Elgin has been receiving accolades from the likes of Grammy Award-winning producers for his last two worship albums. In 2011, he's ready for his third release, a short, self-titled EP. The EP contains six songs, two of which are cover songs ("Stronger" and "Remain," originally by Hillsong and Starfield, respectively), while the rest are originals. The last song on the tracklist, "Our Hope Is In You," is actually a collaboration between Elgin and Brandon Coker, as well as Jason Hoard and Mac Powell of Third Day. It's also easily the best song on the EP. Elgin and his band are definitely talented, and there's no doubt that they could be popular in the Christian contemporary world (in fact, this EP did make it to number 28 on the iTunes Christian charts, between Hillsong United and The Afters, which is pretty impressive for an independent musician with little to no national recognition). So there's definitely potential for some more recognition for Elgin's band and EP. The one thing I'd recommend for them is to figure out a way to establish a sound that they can call their own. A lot of the EP tends to sound all-too-familiar amongst the crowd of contemporary artists out there already (partially due to the original artists behind Elgin's two cover songs). But if those are the kind of artists that frequent your music listening time, you will probably enjoy Keith Elgin.
