Syracuse native Martin Sexton got his start singing in the streets and subways of Boston in the early 1990s. Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from the Fillmore in San Francisco to Carnegie Hall in New York City, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in such television series as Scrubs, Parenthood, and Masters of Sex and in numerous films, although it is his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for more.
Outstanding taste in songwriting as well as a soul-marinated voice
The real thing, people
Call him a soul shouter, a road poet, a folkie, or a rocker and you wouldn’t be wrong.
