French singer-songwriter Matt Marvane drops new single 'There Is A Redeemer'. The song is taken from Matt's latest Integrity Music EP, 'No Compromise', is a nod to the deep impact Keith Green's life and legacy had on his life, topped by this beautiful rendition of Melody Green's popular hymn.
There Is a Redeemer was written by Melody Green in 1977 and popularized by her husband, contemporary Christian musician Keith Green. It was first released on 1982's Songs for the Shepherd, the last album to be released before his death in a plane crash. The final verse was added by Keith.
The song has been covered by various artists such as Robin Mark, David Nevue, Kathryn Sarah Scott, Selah, Kathy Troccoli, Michelle Tumes, Matthew Ward, and Kelly Willard. It appears in twenty hymnals and has been described as a 'classic.
Right from an early age, French singer, songwriter, worship leader and mainstream crossover artist, Matt Marvane has found himself immersed in two cultures.
On one side has been faith. The son of a pastor, who completed a two-year theology course in England, before returning home to pursue the sense of calling to lead people in worship. On the other side is Music. At 6 he was playing the piano, studied music, created a gospel choir at 17, formed JTM Band with friends, recorded 4 albums with them and toured across Europe and Canada.
Out of a desire to equip people involved in worship ministry, Matt started "Louange Collective", helping churches find their own identity and develop their potential.
After his 2013's solo album - 'Un Coin de Paradis' he was signed by a mainstream French label. This collaboration resulted in the release of his album 'Noirs et Blancs' which won 'Album of the Year' at the Angels Music Awards in France.
His single "Heavenly Father" featuring Paul Baloche played a key role in Matt signing with Integrity Music, and the release of his third solo album 'Resistance'. The songs are the result of efforts by Matt and his wife Sarah to encourage unity in the church throughout Europe.
