Solo Media Kit
“An exceptional guitarist, he’s also been gifted with a most expressive voice—a true ‘blues’ voice..Add to that his stand-alone harp skills and a drum machine for a left foot and you almost get the whole picture. A One-of-a-kind original.” Penguin Eggs, Canada.
Serious songwriter and charismatic entertainer combined, Eddie’s solo and one man band performances and recordings are marked by the highest standards of musicianship and a stunning display of virtuosity.
An acknowledged master of blues guitar and harmonica, Martin has been immersed in the genre since the age of 16, and still takes inspiration from new avenues of exploring the great blues heritage. But he writes from his own heart and soul, looking out on his contemporary world, rekindling the spirit of classic blues and moving the legacy forward in the most fresh and personal of ways.
Martin is considered one of the leading one man bands, using foot and hand percussion –suitcase bass drum, snare, tambourine and shakers – where appropriate to the arrangement of the song, while playing guitar and rack-harmonica.
He has released 3 solo albums which have all been internationally acclaimed, and has performed solo at major festivals clubs and theatres round the globe and Jook Joints in Mississippi and Memphis.
Eddie appears on this solo tour following the rave reviews he has received for the “Live in Tuscany “ album from his 20-piece Blues Orchestra, Big Red Radio. BBC Radio2 Paul Jones called it “Absolutely Superb”. Tonight, as his amazing one man band though, you can expect strong vocals, instrumental skills and powerful song writing, with some tender folk as well as hardnosed blues!!
Accolades have been poured on Eddie… “Excellent“ – Time Out ““Essential Blues listening” – Mojo “One-of-a–kind-original” New Jersey Times. And from the biggest Blues Magazine in the world, Blues Revue USA – “his live shows are not to be missed” – make sure you don’t!!
