The Martin Sexton Trio

The Boston Globe says that "his voice comes in a hundred impossible shades." He grew up in Syracuse, New York on roots rock and the blues, and he rose to the top of the crowded Boston songwriting scene with his spellbinding live performances—initially building a following on the streets of Harvard Square. Martin Sexton is a rare virtuoso who can blend songwriting and amazing guitar and vocal chops into a whole that's greater than the sum of the parts. His original songs reconstruct the spirited sound and unpretentious attitude of classic 1970s FM radio for a new generation. Recent Michigan shows by this amazing performer have sold out, so a word to the wise: don't delay on the tickets! Says the New York Times: "He jumps beyond standard fare on the strength of his voice, a blue-eyed soul man’s supple instrument … his unpretentious heartiness helps him focus on every soul singer’s goal: to amplify the sound of the ordinary heart."
