A MASTER AT WORK By Shane Werlinger Grassroots Magazine Getting to know Jesus is a life long process that we never fully master until He calls us home. But there are things that help us along and Mike Wells new CD, 'Majestic,' is one such guide. Mike Wells is a master wordsmith. He crafts each song so that a different aspect of our Lord and Savior is that much more distinct. It's not that we don't know that Jesus is there for us to call on him, or that He is watching over us. It's that Mike's lyrics have a way of looking at things in a way we might not have thought of. Mike also helps us to come to a better understanding of our Lord with his masterful storytelling. He let's us in on some personal times like the loss of a loved one or times when he is Soul Searchin'. He tells of hard times and how Jesus helps us to get through them. And he sings it all with the voice of an angel. Mike is a brilliant singer, with songs that remind you of Ray Boltz and his voice holds out on each and every one. The talent he brings to this CD is enough that you could give this to a friend and they would thank you for it. I know I am thankful to have been blessed by this CD and the reminder of who Jesus is These days we find many if not most albums are overproduced, overly synthetic, filled with bland lyrics, and with one or two good songs and the rest filler. But every once in a while, an album comes along where the heart and soul of the artist comes through....where you feel their passion for their music and their message. Such is the case with Mike Wells on his Majestic album. There you will find lots of clever lyrics living in honestly produced tracks that convey his heart to the listener....the very satisfied listener! Bill Schnee -Grammy award winning Producer/Engineer- (Rod Stewart, Whitney Houston, Steven Curtis Chapman) Great songs, great production, great playing, exellent mix and mastering job.. Steve Jankowski- LA Horns - (Don Henley, Amy Grant, Chicago) 'Wells has the songwriting skills and voice to get that coveted shot at the big leagues.. His material is almost always cleverly penned, full of hooks, and fueled with an instantly likeable pop passion'. Robert Santelli- Asbury Park Press As I travel the world singing and ministering I always tell the story of how God brought a very special young man into my life. His name is Michael Wells. Today he is a mighty man of God and his music is some of the most anointed and prolific I have ever heard and sung in my life. He sings of angels and of the power of an awesome majestic God who had a plan for a little lad in New Jersey some 30 years ago. Listen with your heart and allow the spirit of the Living God to take you places you have never been with the music of 'Majestic'!
