Promise' - The latest release from Marc James is a thoughtful, diverse collection of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. It combines strong lyrical content with a refreshingly free approach and musical style that moves easily between straight rock, intimate worship times and congregational songs that proclaim the eternal truths of the gospel.
Recorded at the wonderful 'Sounds of Heaven' studio in Lisbon, Portugal, the songs are captured with the beautiful warmth and clarity that can only be achieved in a largely analog studio.

Being a long-timer with Vineyard music and a musician myself, I was very happy to hear Mr. James' collaboration with Brenton Brown here and decided to grab this album. It's been on repeat in my car for the last two weeks and the songs genuinely grip me, make me forget about the gravity of my life, and help me ascend to the things of eternity. There really is a lift while hearing and singing these songs which is sometimes hard to find in the mass market of worship music in our time. Great job, great writing, great production value. Bonus DVD was a surprise and has some great content too.
