  2016   EP featuring the stellar talent of Karla Adolphe and Ben Pasley, as a duo.  They  created a kind of musical bridge between the raw acoustic roots of the series, and a much more pop music approach to singing the Psalms.

Enter The Worship Circle morphed and changed over time. The original album in the series was released back in 1998 and featured the hit songs I Will Not Forget You (#1 in the UK)  and You Are So Good To Me (#1 on the CCM charts), which was later re-recorded by Third Day and became fundamental to their success. The common elements in all the recordings would include:

  • Ben and Robin Pasley produce all the albums in the series, and write and perform on most all of them.
  • The songs are stolen from the Psalms where the themes of spiritual struggle, prayerful reach, and passionate interaction with God are essential.
  • The songs are written for the common man, not the professionally religious, and as such they defy standard categorization as worship songs: the are better understood as honest musical prayers inspired by the Psalms.

Their first release in 1998 was met with incredible enthusiasm and sold 70,000 CD’s before the advent of digital music online, now their online catalog has streamed millions. Much of their success was credited not only to the simplicity of the acoustic guitars, hand drums and live recording styles of the debut albums in the series, but also their shockingly down to earth lyrics. They have released 10 albums since 1998,  including an amazing new EP featuring the stellar talent of Karla Adolphe and Ben Pasley, as a duo.  They  created a kind of musical bridge between the raw acoustic roots of the series, and a much more pop music approach to singing the Psalms.
