Greg Sykes is a Canadian worship leader and Covenant Award winning songwriter and recording artist who has been serving in the local church (Centralcc.ca) and leading worship for more than thirteen years. In addition to his own ministry, Greg has recently toured as the opening act for such artists such as Paul Baloche, Michael W Smith, High Valley, Robin Mark, The City Harmonic, Martin Smith, and more.
His latest EP entitled Reverse features 5 newly penned songs of worship that explore such themes as faith, God’s mysterious power, and His plan for His people.
“Just the Beginning” kicks off this little album with infectious pop energy, and Greg encourages God’s people to press on in Jesus’ name when life gets tough because of the reward we have in heaven. The title track is a fresh approach to how God works in the lives of His people, with driving pop rhythms wrapped around his smooth vocals.
Greg’s vulnerability and deep faith come to forefront on the intimate prayer, “Need You Now,” which calls for the Holy Spirit to enter into us until we are “in over our head.”
This little EP left me wanting more tracks to listen to from Mr. Sykes. Having met him personally at CMS Northwest in 2016, I can honestly say that Greg Sykes has the heart of a servant. He loves God and the people he is called to serve in ministry. Go pick up this little gem of an album and get ready for more good things sure to come.
