About Gordon Mac Martin
Gordon Mac Martin, 4th Generation Floridian, is a 2013 Winner Top Ten Will McLean Best New Florida Song Contest "Ed Watson" on Wrinkles In Rhyme is my latest CD. Released in March of 2013, it has 13 original songs. Mac performed and played most of the instruments on all the songs, with the exception of the Jazz Flute, which is James Walsh, excellent drums on some songs by Paul Evers, and ripping bass by Paul Seusy on "Sad Farewell".
Otherwise, Mac has been writing songs since high school. I still remember many, and I continue to write new ones. Most of what Mac writes are love songs, some of my favorites were written for family member's weddings.
Of all Mac’s songs the "Florida Cowboys", with lyrics by Victor Milt, has gotten more exposure than any other. It was in two award winning documentary films: Cowboys of Florida and Cracker- The Last Cowboys of Florida.
