The most pure and genuine form of worship is a mere reflection of what will take place when, one day, we stand in front of God’s throne. Our words, worship, and praise to God are a foreshadowing of what lies ahead, they are “Preludes” of things to come, says Marthe about the album. Marthe De La Torre, a Norwegian native, is a worship leader and artist who live in Los Angeles, CA. Last fall, Marthe joined forces with producers Lamontt ‘SPEC’ Blackshire of Clear Sight Music and Spechouse Media (Flame, V.Rose, Json), and Greg Johnson of Johnson Music, to create this album. Marthe wanted to create a unique worship experience that inspired a genuine and passionate worship of God. With a singular message, strong piano driven melodies, soulful vocals, and electronic synth riffs, this album captures Marthe’s musical sensibilities as well as her fervent heart for worship. Listeners can expect moments of infectious, high-energy praise as well as sobering moments of intimate worship, along with separate guest appearances from Butta P. of Rhema Soul and Edward Rivera.
Marthe’s two singles and debut music video “Only You Are Holy”, has received much praise, both in the U.S. and in Europe. Over the summer, Marthe’s music has been featured through outlets like HearItFirst.com, AllAboutWorship.com, HolyCulture.net, K.S. and Visjon Norge (Norway’s larger Christian Publication and Christian TV network). Marthe is currently featured on NewReleaseTuesday.com for September’s New Artist Watch, and her second single “Hallelujah” was also featured there as an Indie Discovery Pick of The Week during the month of August.
“Working with Marthe on this record was one of the most rewarding production experiences I’ve ever had. The final product is something truly fresh and wonderful and I am very excited for the world to hear this collaboration”.– SPEC (Producer for Clear Sight Music and Spechouse Media).
