"Coming home" is the journey into God’s sanctuary. A beautiful, yet deeply religious album, John Martinborough revisits his gospel roots and explores faith, hope and love with songs penned over the span of 300 years. From traditional hymns to Negro spirituals, from anthems to gospel favorites, he gives testimony of God’s enduring love. It is prayerful. It is joyful. It is welcoming. In all aspects, it is "Coming home".
John enlisted producer Sam Archer (Barbershop Movie Soundtrack) to help create the traditional gospel music experience. Together they crafted everything from the majestic “It is Well” to hand-clapping rendition of “Mary Don‘t You Weep” and the reggae flavored “His Eye is on the Sparrow”.
Dedicated to his parents - both church ministers, “Coming home” took John around the world on a 8 month tour through England, Canada, USA and the Caribbean and ended at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in the Altino Brothers Concert Choral.
