Introducing: Martin Brown

Martin Brown2

British Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Martin Brown has released five solo albums that are all his own work, writing every song himself and playing all the instruments as well! He has co-writing credits that include partnerships with composer Russ Ballard, Bassist and producer Ed Poole, and has songs that have been covered by Bonnie Tyler, Sam Brown, The Rattlers and Kim Alvord.

“Plenty of artists think their work is different and/or special. The music of Martin Brown — who titled his first solo album Where Have I Been All Your Life? — might not be terribly different, but it’s special. In fact, it’s damn good.” – Jeff King

He takes influence from XTC and Crowded House and his best songs are melodically strong and are lyrically detailed. The first single “Hemel Hempstead Boy” off Martin’s second album “Butterflies” received a lot of attention from the media. “Butterflies” and his previous album “Where Have I Been All Your Life?” are available to download on iTunes and you can find out more about Martin on his website and listen to his music on soundcloud.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
