Jonathan and Emily Martin
Jonathan and Emily Martin really epitomize one of the benefits of the explosion in independent music and specifically worship which opens the door to sub-genres that represent both niche projects and regional influences. Jonathan and Emily Martin fit into both with well-written and performed songs. Duet-focused ballads “As the Watchman” and “Set Your Eyes” are well composed and especially suitable for the sanctuary. This five-song collection is a part of a four-part series and drenched in Scripture and vocal harmonies that makes Set Your Eyes an enjoyable experience from start to finish.
Sounds like: Set Your Eyes embodies contemporary adult/pop worship using diverse arrangements that are both guitar and piano driven with a hint of Nashville. “Two Becoming One” is a fresh tune for weddings with a gorgeous string arrangement.
Most Singable: “As the Watchman”
Strongest Biblical Content: “Two Becoming One” (Eph 5:25-33, Mat 19:6, Genesis 2:24)
The Whole Package: “With Joy”
