The Ember Days’ Live EP is comprised of five moving worship tracks. There’s something fun about live tracks, getting to hear the crowd clapping and cheering — it just adds to the passion and emotion. Aside from the opening track “Awake,” the songs have peaceful tempos with serene melodies and tranquil vocals. There’s a definite calmness to the EP, a plea to be in the moment, to “be still and know that I’m God.” The highlight of the EP is the track “Prodigal.” The beautiful chorus sings, “We were born looking for love / we found the answer in the Savior’s blood / We turn to You from distant places / And find redemption in the journey back to You.”
