From the first time I heard “Just For Me“, I liked it. It begins with a purposeful and deliberate sound. You know upon hearing the first line where the song is going and what it is about. I’m so glad the message wasn’t subjugated by a lot of over-orchestration or auditory flamboyance. Marty B. made sure that we knew what we were getting into immediately. What we were venturing into was a very expertly delivered reminiscence of what Jesus did for us and the obvious unworthiness.
The lyrics and rhythm of the song wave the flag of allegiance to God and speak volumes about his relationship with God.
While listening, I cant help but hear elements of Daniel Johnson, Eric Dawkins and even a little Brandon Heath – not bad considering that after research, I learned that his influences include: Smokie Norful, Mali Music and the aforementioned Daniel Johnson.
“Just For Me” erupts into a exciting climax that is bright and energetic. Marty is not only a good singer, but he has something to say. The vamp is filled with personal testimony and sincere statements – not inundated with riffs and vocal techniques that leave the listener’s ears overworked.
While Marty is still young, the inherent talent shines through. , Born in a musical family and honing his skill to the present, I can assure you there will be more from him as time passes. He just seems to have too much in him to be a one-hit-wonder. Look for more music from the Champaign, IL. native. I guarantee that we have just scratched the surface.
Marty B. was influenced by the Holy Spirit to write this powerful song with a scripture reference in Galatians 2:20
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
I recommend downloading a copy of “Just For Me” and getting in on the ground floor of what I hope is a blossoming young artist’s journey in ministry. Marty. B. is an Artist You Should Know.
