Hailed by Billboard as "the real thing, people. A star with potential to permanently affect the musical landscape and keep us entertained for years to come." Martin Sexton distills soul, gospel, R&B, country and blues into archetypal rock n' roll. His songs are intricate and spirited... People claim that Sexton’s songs inspire them to make a change, go cross-country, and follow their hearts; to see a crowd at a Martin Sexton concert is to witness a cross-section of America. According to The New York Times, "[Sexton's] unpretentious heartiness helps him focus on every soul singer’s goal: to amplify the sound of the ordinary heart."
Happily and fiercely independent since 2002, Sexton continues to release critically acclaimed and award-winning albums - his latest is Sugarcoating. While he got his start on the streets of Harvard Square, Sexton now packs world-class venues from the Nokia Theatre in New York City to The Fillmore in San Francisco. He also frequents the county's top festivals such as New Orleans' Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo, plus he just completed a string of dates with Dave Matthews who belted from the stage “Sexton is one of my favorite singer/songwriters.”
