Formed: 2004

From: Hot Springs

Members: Martin plays guitar and sings. His backing band tonight is the Circulators, featuring Kenny Tillery on bass and guitar, Aaron Butler on drums and percussion and Greg Batterton on harmonica and trumpet.

Album: Just demos so far.

Sounds like: Blues folk that shuffles and swings.

Recognize: Martin has been a finalist at the Emerging Artist Competition at the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival and last year won a Lower Arkansas Music Award for most unique performer of the year.

Where you'll find him: During the week, usually at Maxine's, he plays solo gigs and on the weekends he's joined by a band. Beyond Hot Springs, he's got upcoming gigs in Shreveport, Ruston and on March 28 at Cornerstone Pub with the Circulators.
