Martin Sexton is one of the modern legends on the independent folk music circuit with loyal fans attuned to his every quip, and for good reason. Sexton is a powerhouse of sound. He can easily fill a room, and every heart therein, and he don't need no stinking band. This is a singer-songwriter who doesn't neglect the singer side of the equation; he's got a voice that'll grab you by the soul and demand both your attention and your heart. And if you never thought a Boston folkie's pipes could give Al Green a run for his money, think again as his vocal style can only be described as truly soulful, combining the best qualities of singers like Van Morrison, Al Green, Aaron Neville, and Otis Redding.
