Description

A unique collection of songs written and performed by Martin –with an enviable list of guest musicians including BJ Cole, Hugh Whitaker, Paul Liddell, Olivier Demers and Henry Priestman. It also includes contributions from local musicians Peter Robinson, Katie Spencer, Dez Allenby, ‘Ched’ Cheeseman, Gary Hammond, Nick Rooke, Tony Underwood, Sarah Shiels and more.

 

Originally an excuse to record a few new songs as demos, the project slowly grew into a full album as time allowed. Produced and recorded by Peter Robinson at Beverley’s Setter Studio, the songs are essentially new– with a few older ones included that have never been studio recorded.

“The songs are simple without being over-simplistic, lots of melodic hooks and catchy lyrics.” Rod Clements (Lindisfarne)
“It has variety and personality.” Barbara Dickson


It’s an album he is proud of: quirky songs and interesting arrangements that reveal more on each hearing.

CD  also available from Minster Records 9 Eastgate Beverley    www.minster-records.co.uk

    “Shadows & Candlelight” is an excellent collection of witty, concise, grown-up pop songs full of musical and lyrical hooks, suggesting at times the well-absorbed influences of The Beatles (especially George), Crowded House and (dare I say it) early Lindisfarne. An extensive and varied cast of musicians add rootsy accompaniment, and the parts add up to a more than satisfying whole thanks to sympathetic production and the skill and charm of Martin’s writing and performance. An album to keep coming back to. (Rod Clements)
