Martin is a singer / guitarist with many years of experience performing at venues all over Auckland.

He has performed at business functions, weddings and private parties at such venues as Sky City, Waipuna Lodge and The Langham, and has been the resident musician in many restaurants throughout Auckland.
His music covers a huge range, from popular ballads and jazz standards to more upbeat pop and rock and roll songs.

Martin’s specialty is creating an ambient backdrop to a dinner or party situation, with easy listening songs and instrumentals. He sings covers of artists such as James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel, Jack Johnson, The Eagles, Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, ideal for dinner entertainment and parties. If the occasion calls for more upbeat music, Martin can perform an extensive range of rock and roll and popular dance songs as well.

Martin plays a nylon string acoustic guitar and can play classical, flamenco and Latin American style guitar solos, which adds an exciting and colorful contrast to his singing repertoire.

Martin’s backing is fully sequenced for a full, lush sound when required, but he will often sing songs with just guitar backing to add intimacy and subtlety to his performance.

Ideal for: background ambiance and dance music for smaller corporate functions, private parties, wedding receptions and restaurants.
