Martin Smith’s life and career have always been an open book. From the life-threatening road accident he was involved in his twenties, to super-stardom as the frontman of Delirious? the father of six has always talked candidly about his experiences. His journey has been a remarkable one and his music reflects not only his prowess as a musician and accomplished songwriter but also his unwavering faith and belief that together we can change the World.
After a brief hiatus, Martin released “Dancing in the Fire” – the first single from his brand new studio album, earlier this year. The release garnered support from BBC Radio Two and generated a wealth of media coverage. Hot on its heels was second release “Trouble”, a collaboration between Martin and The Kingdom Choir, known more recently for playing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A firm fan favourite, “Trouble”, which was released in September, has already generated over 235,000 streams on Spotify alone.
In anticipation of his album release next year, Martin is set to release his third single, “Fire In Your Eyes” on November 19. Bursting with energy and a soaring anthemic chorus, the single exemplifies Smith’s trademark style and ability to seamlessly blend his musical influences with a contemporary praise and worship sound.
“This song continues the theme of Fire!
This time though we are not ‘in’ the fire but ‘seeing’ the fire in God’s eyes.
It’s always fire that leads us through the dead of night and I’m grateful that through this season of COVID we have all been cared for and carried through extraordinary uncertainty.
Please do me a favour. Find somewhere where you can turn this up REALLY loud and jump, dance, scream and let go of the fear that has gripped us.
This dance will be our story.”
With lockdown restrictions easing over the summer, Martin has been back at the helm doing what he does best – performing live. Recent performances have taken him as far as Romania, and Pennsylvania in the US where he played alongside Amanda Cook and Paul Baloche. Fans old and new have welcomed his new releases, something particularly evident at his live performances, as they patiently await the release of the full record in February 2022.
