Acclaimed artist and songwriter Martin Smith has announced that he will release his first live solo album in July, Love Song For A City, after having recently signed with Integrity Music. The new album was recorded live in eleven countries and more details about the project will be made available here at BREATHEcast as soon as they become available.
As a solo artist and lead vocalist for various bands, Smith has been involved with many aspects of the modern worship movement, and is perhaps best known as the frontman for legendary Dove Award-winning and Grammy-nominated Christian rock band Delirious? (a.k.a. The Cutting Edge), which disbanded in 2009.
Based in Brighton, the U.K., Smith is currently part of the Bright City worship team at St. Peter's Church. As a songwriter, his song credits include church worship staples such as "Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble?," "Waiting Here For You," "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever," and "History Maker," which have connected generations and inspired and influenced worship leaders and worshippers alike.
"Having been part of Martin's journey since our days together at Furious Records, it's especially meaningful to me that he would continue to entrust his craft to Integrity Music over this next season," says Jonathan Brown, President of Integrity Music. "Martin's songs and music have had a significant impact on my life and the lives of countless others."
Phil Loose, Vice President and Managing Director for Integrity's European operations adds, "It's a privilege for Integrity to be working with Martin, whose restless creativity promises to surprise us all over again. As we enter this new season together, we look forward to seeing his songs unite the church in worship."
