Nathan Drake

Nathan Drake is the creator of Reawaken Hymns and Mina Studio.

Reawaken Hymns aims to demonstrate that hymns don’t need to sound “old”. It is a free resource to worship leaders and musicians to help incorporate hymns as a natural part of the modern worship service as opposed to an unnatural sounding concession born from conflict.

The vast majority of the hymn melodies are kept original, so that all ages can sing together. Just a classic hymn in a modern musical context.

Mina Studio is a place for tech tips, cheap tech hacks, worship leading tips, budget gear reviews and comparisons, DIY worship, and other issues for the church with big ambitions and small resources.
