Biography

Born in London in the 60’s, Eddie Martin wrote his first songs aged 12 and, influenced by acoustic and rock singer-songwriters from both sides of the Atlantic, turned professional after being nominated for Best British Blues Guitarist, Band and Album between 1996 and 1998. Since then he has built a strong following as an acoustic artist and charismatic band leader, he has also recorded and performed with many greats from both sides of the Atlantic, including John Mayall, Peter Green, Buddy Guy, and Taj Mahal.

His prolific recording and touring schedule takes him from his native UK all round the world to major events - first touring the USA to some acclaim in 1999. Recent years have for example, seen his big band headline the Colne International Rhythm and Blues Festival in the UK, his trio perform at the prestigious Cahors Blues Festival in France, and attend the World Harmonica Festival in Germany where he performed solo, held a harmonica masterclass and judged the world blues harmonica competition
He continues to record numerous live and studio sessions for national radio programs (BBC Radio 2 in the UK). His songs have found their way to the finals of the International Songwriting Competition and to the song stable of Alligator Records.

And his live performances have always attracted accolades. “The stuff of legend” said Guitarist Magazine this year,”a live act not to be missed” said Blues Revue USA. He will continue touring through 2007-8 with his powerful roots-rock trio and as a solo acoustic singer-songwriter/one-man-band to promote his 2 current releases on Blueblood Records, “Contrary Mary” and “Flowers to the Desert
