MARK SAYS: Yerubilee is a praise & worship band from Jerusalem with a new sound and a vision for lifting up the name of Yeshua all around the world. Yerubilee is connected to the 24/7/365 worship movement and could be described as Messianic Hebraic Christian praise and worship with heartfelt singing, Davidic harp, and pop orchestra supported by reggae rhythms.
The band's name "Yerubilee" (pronounced "yah-ROO-beh-lee") combines "Yerushalayim" (Hebrew for Jerusalem) with "Jubilee" to evoke scenes of celebration and jubilation as the Holy City prepares for the Messiah's soon return in the clouds of heaven.
With popular covers such as "We Want to See Jesus Lifted High,"(by Doug Horley), "Roni, Roni, Bat Zion" (David Loden) and "Call on Jesus," (Nicole C. Mullen) along with choice originals "By Your Wounds" and "Wait on the LORD," set to one drop, reggae, and rocksteady riddims.
Yerubilee's instrumentation combines traditional
bass-drums-guitar-keyboards with jazzy horns, a super-sweet string section, and electric Davidic harp whose design is based upon findings from archeological digs.
Here is a short track by track summary of the CD:
Wait on the LORD: With glistening harp and smooth vocals, this Teddy Chadwick original takes its lyrics from Psalm 27 with strong exhortation to be of good courage in YAH.
