  1. Wow, a lot has happened this month so far, but the news I’m most excited for is Martel’s new album. I’m a big downhere fan, and the Wide eyed and Mystified album is one of my all time favourites. The new song sounds amazing. You guys have made my day 😀 And I’m also excited for Robbie Seay’s album. My birthday is coming up next month, so with new albums from Robbie Seay, for King and Country, Sanctus Real, and Martel, I’m all set!

    1. Thanks for commenting Luc, actually this week was a quiet week compared to others. If you want to you can look at the other Sunday news roundups- I think there was a week in early August that had more news…

      I’m not that much of a fan of Marc Martel’s new sound, but I guess if it points new fans to Jesus, then that’s cool! By the way, have you heard the previous RSB Psalm albums Luc? Do you recommend them?

      1. I haven’t had a good listen to the second EP yet, but I have the first one and I would highly recommend it. When they’re all released, I’ll buy the other two, and make them into one album on my itunes! But even with how good the EP’s are, the Rich and Poor album will be incredibly difficult to beat.
