Following a very fruitfull worship ministry and the success of his precious albums, the praise and worship leader and composer Joe Mettle will launch his third album this October.
Joseph Oscar Mettle popularly known as Joe Mettle is the Team Leader at Joe Mettle Ministries, a worship ministry that seeks to influence all Worshippers through praise and worship to God
His 2012 debut single ‘’Nhyira’’ has now become a regular on the playlist of many households. He is an inspirational singer and a deeply moving listening experience. Joe has two albums; ‘’My Gratitude’’ which he released in 2011 and ‘’Sound of Praise’’, a live recorded album released in 2013.
“The Encounter” album was recorded in June at his annual concert, Praiz Reloaded organised by Joe Mettle Ministries and Reverb Studios. The album was recorded live and features both traditional and contemporary grooves which sits on Godly inspired lyrics.
Some of the songs on the album are Mensuro, Ayeyi Ndwom and Let is rain.

Music is able to make that kind of impact but he believes the worship experience must live on even after the songs.
