The Martins “Still Standing” Album Review

The Martins
Still Standing
(Gaither Music Group)

Nearly 30 years into their music ministry, The Martins are still enjoying the experience of singing, recording and performing more than ever, but that doesn’t mean everything’s always been rosy for the eight-time Dove Award winners and double Grammy nominees. Just take a listen to the title track of their latest long player, which unveils revealing lines such as “been through the fire, been through the flood, battled the storms, walked through some mud, but thanks to the blood, they’re still standing.”

Indeed, siblings Joyce, Jonathan and Judy have weathered through all the sacrifice it takes to last this long, sounding refreshed and ready for whatever adventure this current season may bring (and there sure have been many, including performances at Carnegie Hall and the White House!) With singer/musician/producer Gordon Moteonce again in their corner, the trio turns in tight-knit harmonies, adult contemporary arrangements with a southern slant, and ultimately, a message of hopefulness and thanksgiving grounded in their eternal destiny.
