This week the spotlight shines on the land down under, where Australian independent Christian artist Martin Lloyd wrote, recorded and produced the song “Stand on Me”.
There’s a gentleness and sincerity that resonates deeply on this song, inviting listeners to pause from the hustle and bustle of daily life, in order to focus on what truly matters and in this case to focus on WHO really matters.
Check out this interesting, short article from Chords Magazine about the kind of “connectivity” which truly satisfies our hunger. I agree with the writer’s main point. There is nothing wrong with social media per se – as long as we don’t look to it as our main source of validation, inspiration or ultimate meaning. No amount of “likes” or “friends” will ever truly supply these things – for they come from God.
New review and feature song coming soon!
Martin Lloyd’s album “Secret Place” is full of gentle, thoughtful and flowing worshipful songs. Looking for something to facilitate thoughtful moments of respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life? Check out this collection of original worship songs designed to “draw the listener to a place of greater intimacy with God.”
Martin Lloyd has been writing music and expressing worship through song for over 25 years. Drawing inspiration from scripture, particularly the Psalms, as well as his own personal relationship with God, Martin blends interesting melodies and rich chordal piano parts to achieve a combination of both spontaneous and well-crafted songs. Together with a team of other spirit-led musicians, Martin has been able to capture some of his more recent expressions to God in his first release, Secret Place. It is Martin’s desire that this album will lead the listener on a journey to the secret place of greater intimacy with their Loving Father.
