One of the top rock guitarists ever to grace our planet, Martin’s dynamic, expressive, explosive guitar playing was paramount to Jethro Tull’s live and recorded sound, starting with his debut on the band’s classic second album, Stand Up, right up to the band’s eventual demise in 2011. He’s on a short list of amazing, one-of-a-kind, original, influential, rock ‘n’ roll guitarists that have fortunately graced our presence over the years. Martin is touring the U.S. this year with his own incredible band in support of his new album, Back to Steel (released on 71st Street Music). His band’s original music harkens back to the earthy blues-rock of Tull’s earliest days and his current live set list mixes in some early Tull classics along with his own original heavy blues-rock.
