A quick way to define the style of this album would be to say that it would fit almost any situation, whether it is played in the morning, at the gym, while driving or while chilling at home.

Martin Smith’s music is for fans of artists like Royal Blood, Delirious?, Sam Fender or Frida Sundemo, and especially for listeners and people who are in tune with their faith and spirituality.

Just like a reflection of his own career, ‘Dancing In the Fire’ stays grounded and true to Martin’s core values, with songs like ‘Jesus’ and ‘Alleluia Anyway’, to more low-key ones like ‘Trouble’ and ‘I See You’, where the chorus can be heard praising at the tune of drums and electric guitars.

For people who are not into religious music but still appreciate a piece of good, classic Rock music with relevant lyrics, songs like ‘Dancing In The Fire’ or ‘Everyday Life’ will still deliver the goods.

‘Until The End Of Time’ is the perfect song to dedicate to loved ones: easy intro, mellow vocals, meaningful lyrics and beautifully energetic instrumentation.

Other songs like ‘Everyday Life’ are kneen towards a more slow-paced style, say Coldplay-ish. Starting off with an intro of string quartet instruments, it carries and slowly upgrades towards the end to a more praise-the-Lord mood.

Martin Smith receives over 197K listeners per month and currently has 33K followers on Spotify, but his career kick-started 30 years ago. Until today, he still brings a new perspective to the Church.

Guest artists found in Dancing In The Fire are Elle Limebear (‘Our Eyes Are On You’), The Kingdom Choir (‘Trouble’), Stuart Garrard (‘Everything There Is To Know’), and Victory Boyd (‘Everyday Life’).
