OUT 7th April 2014 - NEW ALBUM –
What the fans have been asking for!
This carefully selected collection of songs celebrates the 25 years and 13 albums of Eddie Martin’s recording career. With varied arrangements – some lush, some sparse – this record showcases the energy and vitality that Martin has brought to the genre of acoustic blues.
Songs of love and loss, work and hardship sit side-by-side with dramatic narratives and humorous words-of-advice. Fans of Martin’s guitar and harmonica skills will not be disappointed, there are also one-man-band tracks displaying his instrumental virtuosity and band arrangements which draw upon expert musicians from both sides of the Atlantic (Chicago-born and trained Michael Wiedrich on drums and Paddy Milner (Best British Blues Instrumentalist Winner) on piano).
All-in all this collection encompasses the tough and tender sides of this award-winning blues performer over the course of his prolific career.
