Blog: Featured Album: Martin Smith - God's Great Dance Floor
Apr 15 2013
In the latest episode of our new series of featured albums, we look at the first full-length solo album from Martin Smith, 'God's Great Dance Floor - Step 1'.
Martin Smith, formerly lead singer of British rock band Delirious, releases 'God's Great Dance Floor - Step 01' on 22nd April 2013. Recorded in collaboration with a young team of musicians from St. Peter's Church, Brighton, the album evolved from Martin's recent solo EP recordings which were produced independently in his home studio.
'God's Great Dance Floor - Step 01' is a 10 track collection of personal revival songs born out of a reinvigorated season of waiting on God.
"All the components of classic Delirious are to be found in this album - strong drums, top class guitars, worship focused lyrics, and a passionate singer who can make a song either soar or stoop. But somehow Martin has managed to capture some of the creative spark that set Delirious apart from other bands, whilst still setting a new direction on his journey of reflection and rediscovery." - LTTM Rating 5 out of 5 Stars Louder Than The Music Read full Review
