“Martin was great! He provided two sets for our wedding party and he helped to make the evening really special. He is a great musician and was really professional (his drummer was great as well!). The guests loved him, and he even took their weird and wonderful requests. His covers were brilliant, we can’t recommend him enough. Book him now!”
And performed with notable artists alongside include Reef, Chuck Mosley, Tesserac T, Jim Bob, Breed 77, Spear of Destiny and OPM
His distinctive, powerful and adaptable vocals (“You can sing anything!”) – His huge stylistic variety! This not only ends up appealing to a wide audience taste but also keeping them on their toes as to what comes next and really ramps up the excitement (You’ve just had Chaka Khan? Well here’s some Dizzee Rascal…and then some Queen)
Notable venues I’ve performed at include: Download Festival, Donington Park Rescue Rooms, Nottingham The Underworld, Camden Town, London The Waterfront, Norwich Mercure Piccadilly Hotel, Manchester The Corporation, Sheffield The Fleece,
