The Door Is Open is a journey through the open door of Revelations 4:1, into the high and the deep; a cross-genre prophetic soaking and worship experience flowing through psalmist and worship leader Kathryn Marquis, arriving in the very heart of the triune God. With a voice like golden honey, and lyrics that resonate within the soul and spirit-man, the listener is transported to both the depths of the human condition and unseen realms of mystery and grace.
The album's flagship song, "Mystery", invites the worshiper to set aside soulish experience and rise up in the identity of Christ within, the hope of Glory. "Third Heaven Revelation" is Kathryn's unrehearsed, unedited retelling of a profound vision experience in worship, while the psalmist's "Soul Cry" is a true Davidic testimony of being rescued and restored. "Beautiful" was originally a spontaneous prophetic song, and was recorded in one take as the Presence of Jesus invaded the vocal booth. This debut recording from Kathryn Marquis is more than a CD; it is an experience of the Lord, saturated with His presence, His glory, and His heart.

"Kathryn reminds me of the kind of minstrel who Elijah was calling for when he wanted the hand of the Lord to come upon him. 'Bring me a minstrel and I will hear from heaven' (2 Kings 3:15). As you listen to Kathryn's soothing and profound worship, you will experience 'the hand of the Lord coming upon you!'"
—Bill Yount, Blowing the Shofar Ministries
"What a beautiful voice the Lord has given to Kathryn Marquis; it is a new and fresh sound, like something I have never heard before. It's hard to explain—you just have to hear itóit is definitely from the Lord."

"Kathryn Marquis is a gifted and anointed worship leader and song writer. God has gifted her with an amazing ability to lead the congregation into deeper levels of worship. Don't think of her in the traditional worship leader's role; that is too limited. What Kathryn brings moves between worship and intercession; it is hard to distinguish where one stops and the other starts. She and the band came to our church for a full weekend of worship and prayer and we felt that a tangible shift took place. If you are hungry for the presence of God, and long for a deeper revelation, I would highly recommend Kathryn."
—Rachel Carroll, Children's Pastor, Vineyard Oak Park, IL
"I just love Kathrynís fresh and beautiful voice. Her sound is a clear sound from Heaven! Her CD will allow you to see yourself from a Heavenly perspective. I fully recommend her CD!"
—Theresa Phillips, ChicagoPropheticVoice
"THE DOOR IS OPEN is without doubt the best soaking/worship CD we have ever heard. Kathryn Marquis is an anointed worshiper who literally carries the heart and abandonment of David. She is a true psalmist and has the ability to hear and discern the voice of God, and the move of the Holy Spirit. She also is able to ignite the heart of man to enter into a higher and more intimate level of worship and love for the Father. Kathrynís worship carries a purity that causes heaven to respond. When she leads worship, whether it is for a congregation of ten or 500 people, she has the ability to engage every single person in worship, which causes a very powerful corporate anointing to fall in the room. We have been in many worship sessions with her, in-and-outside our church, and can honestly say, that those have been the best worship times we have ever experienced. Kathryn travels itinerantly ministering in many churches and leading worship in conferences and different church events, and everyone who has invited her to minister in their church wants her to come back. She has a powerful breakthrough anointing that leaves a deep deposit in the lives of the people attending, and in the church itself. We greatly endorse Kathrynís heart and ministry, and without hesitation encourage leaders to bring her, so she can impart what she carries in their midst. We use "The Door is Open" CD in our church, at home, and have taken it to the nations so others can experience the impact that Kathrynís worship causes. We highly recommend it, as we know that there isnít another one like it." —Ivan and Isabel Allum Highlands Christian Ministries of Stratford
About the Artist:
Kathryn Marquis is an itinerant worship leader, conference speaker, psalmist and prophetic voice whose mandate and passion is Psalm 40:3 ( "He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise unto our God, that many would SEE and FEAR and put their trust in the LORD"). Her heart is to raise up, equip and release a generation of "little Davids" who will go deep with their God, and bind up the brokenhearted.
In worship, Kathryn functions equally as naturally in the edgy, raw sound of spontaneous and prophetic song, as in corporate anthemic praise, always with great sensitivity and honor for Holy Spirit, leaving a deep deposit where ever she ministers.
As a teacher, she brings humor, wisdom, practical insight and accessibility to the revelation and dynamic of deep worship, healing and the prophetic, as well as the art and the craft of worship for musicians and non-musicians alike. Her ministry releases "on earth as it is in Heaven" worship, encounter, and a Revelation chapter 4 paradigm — immediate access to the very throne-room of God.
Kathryn is the worship pastor at Forest City Destiny Church, and the worship leader for The Response Initiative, an urban worship initiative effecting city transformation by worship that changes an atmosphere. She lives with her husband and sons in London, Ontario, Canada, and travels itinerantly both in Canada and worldwide.
