Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, worship leader Andrew Marcus
has been making quite the name for himself, and for good reason. Writing, touring, and recording with artists such as Leeland, Paul Baloche and Phil Wickham, Andrew has displayed a talent and production that can easily stand up to the likes of such artists. His newest release, Constant
, only serves to further Andrew as a staple name in CCM. While the album may edge a little too closely to predictability, the songs presented are genuine and musically solid. "Constant," "You Are With Me" and "Glory to His Name" are highlights any church would be proud to cover. Similarly, "We Live" is sure to find a welcome home among youth with its EDM backdrop. The album also features live versions of "You Are With Me," "Good to Me" and "Yahweh." While it would have been great to hear another handful of new tracks to stretch the album into a full-length release, these live cuts offer some of the album's best moments. Overall, Constant
may not be a game changer, but that was never its purpose. It's an album of heartfelt worship songs that can be sung by anyone, and if that's what you're looking for, you're sure to find enjoyment with this release.
