Singer-songwriter Brian Martin, under the moniker of “B.Martin,” plays simply a guitar, but the sounds he produces are some of the most extensive and organic sounding notes I’ve heard.
Martin’s “Half-Sleeve” EP is a collection of songs that smack you in the face and force you to listen – but in a good way. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Coldplay and Guster, Martin wants you to feel every note, every ache and every good moment. There’s a whole lot on this album but in no way is it over-produced or underwhelming.
Martin’s CD release party takes place on Saturday, May 22 at Honey Whyte’s (2116 E. Main Street).
