Interview with John Martin from Enfield

Recently I had the joy of being at the Resolved Conference in Palm Springs, CA, along with about 3500 mostly college students. We heard some great messages from Al Mohler, CJ Mahaney, Rick Holland, John MacArthur, and Steve Lawson.

While I was there I took a few minutes to interview John Martin about his band, Enfield, who led the music at Resolved. Enfield is made up of John (piano and vocals), Lisa Martin (John’s wife on vocals), Patrick Anderson (guitars), Ryan Foglesong (bass/arranging/songwriting), David Zimmer (drums/arranging/songwriting), Paul Hoover on guitars, and Wil Pearce on various stringed instruments. They’re all gifted and humble musicians, and they’ll be leading one of the main sessions at WorshipGod11 this year.

Here’s what John had to say:

In the interview, John mentioned Lead On, O King Eternal is one of his favorite Enfield arrangements. John has graciously offered readers of Worship Matters the song for free. You can download the MP3 here, the guitar chart here, and the lead sheet here. To check out more of Enfield’s music, go here.

    Love how Enfield takes the old hymns and puts them to new arrangements. Grace Bible Church in Hutchinson Kansas is blessed by your style of worship!

    I agree with John on “Lead on O King Eternal”. Love the words and arrangement. A good marriage of lyric and music. Our fellowship sings it regularly.

    Please pray that one day people talk of the original Enfield – the place in London – in that way.

    […] Tonight was simply amazing.  I was so excited when I heard that Enfield was going to be there…I was completely psyched.  They rocked.  I mean these guys were just awesome.  The passion, the Christ centered-ness, the rich theological focus, the drummer to end all drummers…I mean, just WOW. What a blessing.  I had the honor of sharing a cup of Joe with our new Sr. Pastor Ryan Boys and John Martin from Enfield and it was a joy.  A true heart for service in the church with Christ preeminent.   Bob K did some pre-conference interviews with the band that he posted on his blog.  He talked with Ryan Foglesong and David Zimmer  and he also spoke with John Martin.
